Nissan R380-II (1967 Yatabe Speed Trials) - 1:43 Scale Diecast Model Car


$ 39.00

When Nissan Motor Company absorbed the Prince Motor Company in 1966, they inherited Prince's nascent motorsports program that had yielded positive results with its production-based Skyline GT-B racers and R380 prototypes. Correctly predicting that racing held the key to worldwide exposure and growth, Nissan continued development of the R380 for international sports car racing. In 1967, an evolution of the original prototypes, the R380-II, was taken to Japan's fearsome 2-kilometer Yatabe Circuit for a series of speed trials. When the dust had settled, the R380-II had claimed seven international speed records...a clear statement that the Japanese motor industry was a force with which to be reckoned. Ebbro have captured the graceful, slippery shape of the Nissan R380-II in a highly accurate 1:43-scale diecast replica, which includes beautifully detailed paintwork, wheels and exterior trim. For fans of Japanese auto racing history, the R380-II is an unmissable model.
