The KPGC10 was the very first Skyline GT-R ever made by Nissan. Produced from 1969 to 1972, the car was nicknamed “Hako-Suka” from the Japanese “Hako,” which means box, and “Suka,”from the Japanese pronunciation of “Skyline”.

The car has become an icon of Japan, so much so that an authentic GT-R preserved in good condition can sometimes fetch about 30 million yen (approximately SGD$326,000) nowadays!

You probably remember the blue Hako we featured a little while ago, a machine built to resemble its racing counterpart as closely as possible.
