It's no exaggeration to say that Hakoska was the skyline that affected the most people in the long history of the skyline, which spans more than half a century.
Among them, GT-R is a special existence, equipped with DOHC 24 valve S20 type developed based on a racing engine, sweeping the motor sports scene. And, I think the fact that the unprecedented record of 50 wins in total has been set is still a big factor that attracts many fans.
However, even in Hakosuka, there are some who dare to choose a car equipped with the L20 engine instead of the GT-R that many people long for. That is Atsushi Arai, the owner of this GT-X.
Originally an owner who liked Hakosuka, but at that time it was expensive and could not be bought, and transferred to C130 Laurel and Japan, etc., and then shifted to Y30 Gloria and Y32 Cima, and also to his luxury sedan with his car. However, it was a big turning point for me to visit an event. The sight of Hakosuka running there revived my strong admiration for Hakosuka that I had when I was young.
N42 block-based 3.2L full tune that uses Kameari's φ88.5mm piston and 85mm crank. Head surface polishing, port processing, crank rear end shortening processing etc. are applied to generate about 300 ps.
The black instrument panel has a spartan impression, but I'm enjoying the atmosphere of the time, leaving the genuine radio and cooler. The steering wheel is equipped with a classic Datsun competition.
