The KPGC10, also known as the Skyline 2000 GT-R Coupe or Hakosuka ハコスカ is another living legend among the Prince / Nissan / Datsun models. Built late in the year 1970, as a variant to it’s 4dr sister model, of PGC10, the ‘back then’ came with a monstrous S20 inline 6 block which produces 160 ponies.
Although years has passed, where many cars would already made their admittance to halfcuts, live healthy examples of the KPGC10 can still be spotted in certain parts of the world.
