Nissan Skyline GT-R - KPGC10 – Winner Scale - 1:18

The Nissan Skyline GT-R (technical name is KPGC10) is a model that was known as “Hakosuka” for many Japanese. A combination of two words ‘hako’ means boxy and ‘suka’, a skyline. 

Created by legendary Nissan Skyline boss, Shinichiro Sakurai, the Nissan Skyline GT-R evolved out of the earlier made Prince Motor Co. famous GR-8 engine (the firm was purchased by Nissan). Sakurai who also moved from Prince to Nissan, re-engineered the car to such lengths that people had these words to say “Skyline’s only rival is a Skyline”. It was because, this car won races more than 50 times in a span of just 3 years.

In March, 1971 at the Japan Grand Prix race held at the 6km Fuji circuit, father of drifter* Kunimitsu Takahashi driving the car # 6, won the 15 laps race with a timing of 2’02” 25.

 

* drifting is a driving technique where the driver intentionally oversteers with some loss of traction driving the car through the entirety at the corner.
