Nissan Skyline GT-R (1973) - 1:43 Scale Diecast Model Car


$ 39.00

Introduced in 1973, the second-generation Nissan Skyline GT-R was intended to follow in the motorsport-dominating footsteps of its predecessor, the legendary "Hakosuka" Skyline. Powered by Nissan's potent 2-liter S20 straight six, the new GT-R (affectionately known as the "Kenmeri") was a strong performer. However, the timing for its introduction couldn't have been worse: between the global oil crisis of the 1970s and Nissan's attendant withdrawal from racing, the GT-R was doomed from the start. Only 197 examples of this star-crossed Japanese supercar were built, and today rank as top-tier collectibles in the nascent "nostalgic" scene. Ebbro's 1:43-scale diecast replica of the rare 1973 Skyline GT-R offers a tremendous level of detail at a surprisingly friendly price. Beautifully proportioned and packing the requisite JDM details such as carefully crafted fender mirrors and black "steelies," the Ebbro Kenmeri Skyline is a worthy addition to any collection of 1:43-scale sports and GT cars.

SPECIFICATIONS: 1:43 scale (approximately four inches in length). Diecast metal body, no opening parts. Fixed-position steering. Comes with acrylic dust cover and display base.

PERFECT FOR: Skyline enthusiasts. Readers of Japanese Nostalgic Car. Classic car fans who crave something unique.
