Na tuhle Hako koukám už několik týdnů a lámu si hlavu s tím, co k ní napsat. Chci si totiž hlavně někde uchovat její fotky, než japonský internet zešílí a všechny po prodeji smaže.
Auto je pod číslem 15 vedené na BH auction, která proběhne v rámci Super GT toto léto. K aukci najdete samozřejmě i popis vozu, který vás má vyhajpovat k vysolení nesmyslného balíku za tuhle okruhovou hajtru.
Jak tak na tu pod nos naservírovanou dávku informací koukám, říkám si, jestli vás oslnit svým bezedným know how a nebo přiznat svou lenost a neznalost a čestně překopírovat popis rovnou z aukce.
Jo, jsem línej… teda čestnej, jo čestnej jsem chtěl napsat.
Nicknamed “Hakosuka”, the vehicle made its debut in 1968 as the first new model from Nissan Prince. After four-door sedans, wagons and vans that had a more practical use for customers, the 2000GT (GC10) with a longer nose, equipped with a L20 2-liter inline six SOHC made its debut, as it was with the former Prince Skyline, the expectation rose within the motor sports world.
On October 1968, at the 15th Tokyo Motor Show, the “Skyline GT Racing Spec” made its debut. Inside 2000GT’s four-door sedan body, was the S20 2-liter inline 6 DOHC. The stimulating model graced with the engine, which had all of GR8 engine’s know-how inserted into it, was all the craze at the show. The GR8 engine was developed for the Nissan R380 (the GT prototype racing car) and it was developed to defeat Porsche.
Next February, the name changed from Racing to “R”, with mostly the same body shell as the concept model, the first-generation Skyline GT-R (PGC10) was born. For the S20 engine, for the first time in history for a production vehicle, a 4 valve DOHC S20 was applied.
832 four-door sedan Hakosuka GT-Rs (PGC10) were produced, and when the short wheelbase two-door hard top was added to its lineup in 1970, the GT-R was left with the two-door hard top (KPGC10).
The “Hakosuka GT-R” was produced to race in the touring car race and after its debut in “JAF Grand Prix”, until the team ceased its works race activity on October 1972, they won an astonishing 52 races and among them 49 were won consecutively.
Since only few were produced, the four-door sedan Hakosuka GT-R (PGC10) with a S20 engine, is valued by enthusiasts. In order to capture the original “touring car race model” feel, the engine, suspension, and additional indicators, were added. This example makes one realize that the S20 engine is indeed a racing grade engine.
