1987 Nissan Skyline 2000GTS-R

The seventh-generation Skyline (R31) was launched in August 1985 and this model is well remembered as being the first to reintroduce the 6-cylinder DOHC engine (discontinued with the C110). In May 1986, the coupe GTS appeared, and in August 1987, after a minor change, the coupe GTS-R (RB20DET-R: 210PS engine) – based on Group A race specifications – was sold as a limited edition (800 units).
