Nissan Skyline KPGC10 out where it belongs on the Track

The first ever GT-R Skyline appeared in February 1969 and was called the PGC-10, KPGC-10 for later coupé version which is featured in this inspired Vimeo video. The cars were stripped of unnecessary equipment to be as light as possible for racing, and performed well at the track. The sedan racked up 33 victories in less than two years, and the coupe stretched this to 50 through 1972. It was powered by slightly detuned 2.0-liter inline 6-cylinder DOHC race engine that had 4 valves per cylinder head and 3 high flow carburetors that when combined together produced 160 hp which was only 40 down from the racing unit.

This short video posted on Vimeo by Josh Clason featuring a superb JDM KPGC10 Nissan Skyline during a track day at Miller Motorsports Park (Utah) is unquestionably one of the best we have been lucky enough to see in 2012. This is not to be missed so enjoy!
