1983 Nissan Skyline Super Silhouette

In the Super Silhouette races that started in 1979, Masahiro Hasemi competed in the 1982 and 1983 seasons driving this machine. The category allowed heavy modifications and this monster, although the same as a production car on the outside, is the equivalent of a Formula racing car on the inside. Its dynamic performance won many fans. The engine is a LZ20B turbo (570PS). Its race debut was in May 1982 and it did extremely well, chalking up 2 wins in 1982 and 5 wins in 1983.
