At the previous year’s Japan GP, Nissan had reluctantly used a Chevrolet engine due to the lack of development time. However, entered in the 1969 Japan GP was the R382, which was equipped with Nissan’s own 6-liter V12 DOHC engine (600PS). The R382 dominated the race, beating the Porsche and Toyota 7 to take both 1st place (M. Kurosawa) and 2nd place (H. Kitano).
