Know Your GT-R: 1973 Skyline 2000GT-R KPGC110

This GT-R was launched in January 1973, based off the fourth generation C110 Skyline. This GT-R contains a 6-cylinder inline dual overhead cam (DOHC) 24-valve S20 engine that puts out 158 maximum horsepower at 7000 rpm and 130 ft-lb of torque at 5600 rpm. It’s one of the first Japanese cars that came equipped with both front and rear disc brakes, which was pretty advanced engineering for the time. As a result, this car became quite popular with the performance crowd.
