1970 Nissan Skyline 2000 GT-R Hakosuka Is Ultimate 4DSC Grand Master



hakosuka 4dscThis is the second GT-R from RM Auctions recently — with the 1972 H/T coupe earning an impressive $242,000 at RM’s Monterey 2014 auction. That car is its two-door profile is more in line with the eventual GT-R lineage, but looks less like a Bond henchman’s ride than this G-man special.

This Skyline GT-R sedan may find fewer general-interest fanboys, but among the cult of the Nissan 4DSC, it is the one to have.Car-Revs-Daily.com Nissan NC2020 Vision Gran Turismo Makes Real-Life Debut at Goodwood FoS 56 Car-Revs-Daily.com Nissan NC2020 Vision Gran Turismo Makes Real-Life Debut at Goodwood FoS 10 Nissan GT1 Vision GranTurismo Teaser Gallery

Nissan is eagerly cultivating the Hakosuka’s US descent’s return to 4-Door Sports Car glory with the 2016 Maxima, widely expected to debut in Detroit in January just a few days before this auction takes place in Arizona.

Sure, the link between the two is tenuous, but the lineage could not be more clear. How is Nissan building buzz for the Maxima’s relaunch? It recently had a 1996 Maxima SE 5-Speed restored to showroom-fresh glory. We would have preferred the 1989-1995 model in that creamy white metallic, but such is life.
