Over the years in motor sports, there has been many vehicles that will stick in the minds of the fans. There are iconic figures such as Ford’s Sierra Cosworth and Audi’s Quattro, but starting the trend for the track cars was the legendary Skyline GT from Nissan.

The first glimpse we had of the Skyline GT was nearly fifty years ago back in 1964 when it debuted in Japan. It wasn’t a day Nissan was expecting to go as well as it did, and nobody could have expected the Skyline to perform. There is no doubt that over the years Nissan have produced a number of great cars and they weren’t about to stop with the Skyline.

Headlines were set to go Porsche as the 904 Carrera GTS looked to break away from the pack and humiliate all competition. Little did we know that the Skyline was going to take the headlines this day as it kept up it kept up with the Porsche every step of the way.

Below is a video that gives us an in depth and heart warming look into the race that skyrocketed the Skyline to the fame that it still holds today.
