Nissan Skyline Hakosuka
Despite its very subtle body styling, which differed the GT-R from the regular Skyline with just the badges, the KPGC10, commonly known under the name “Hakosuka” i.e. “Boxy-Skyline”, had more importantly a rather special engine hiding under its hood. It was the S20 straight six taken from the R380 Prince race car that made this Skyline the true (and very first) GT-R ever produced.
The original Skyline’s four-door version, even though very successful on the race track, was dominated by heavy understeer. In order to achieve good lap times, the drivers had to brake late and hard into the apex and drift around the corner. So called “drifting” thus soon became popular among the fans and made the Skyline very popular. Such style wasn’t the most effective or the quickest way to get around, but it sure was a hell of a spectacle.
