Nissan Skyline GT-R (KPGC10) - 1:18 Scale Diecast Model Car
In the rapid (and long overdue) ascent of classic Japanese iron into the mainstream of the car collecting world, the KPGC10-generation Nissan Skyline GT-R stands as one of the most desirable of all models. It's easy to understand why: with a lusty straight six and a short wheelbase for nimble handling, the GT-R has an impeccable racing pedigree. Further, while not the first car to bear the Skyline badge, it is certainly the spiritual father of the more recent line of world-beating Nissans of the same name. Plus, it's gorgeous in that wonderful "handsome coupe of the '70s" way. Now, the genius modelers at AUTOart have released a masterful 1:18-scale diecast replica of the legendary "Hakosuka" (or "boxy skyline") GT-R. Instead of going with a bone-stock interpretation, the AUTOart Hakosuka features a lowered ride height, RS Watanabe rims, and an aftermarket air dam...common modifications on full-sized examples. With flawless fit-and-finish, incredibly detailed trim and engine compartment, and deep, lustrous paint, there is surely no finer diecast Skyline to be found.
SPECIFICATIONS: 1:18 scale (approximately ten inches in length.) Opening hood, doors, and trunk lid. Functional steering.
PERFECT FOR: JDM fans. Enthusiasts who are ahead of the mainstream curve. Open-minded collectors who know that desirable cars are not the exclusive domain of the Americans and Europeans.
