1971-1972 KPGC10 Skyline GT-R
This gorgeous two-door coupé was launched in 1971, three years after the original four-door saloon version first went into production under the Skyline GT-R moniker. It was powered by a naturally aspirated 2.0-litre straight six engine that produced an impressive 161bhp at 7000rpm.
With just 1100kg to shift, the rear-wheel-drive coupé was a threat to even the most exotic supercars of the day.
