"Its body was extended to fit the 6-cylinder engine. A thoroughbred born to win."
The team "Prince" entered the first Japan GP held on the Suzuka Circuit with an almost stock Skyline Sports model, and failed miserably.
With their mind set on recovering their honour, a project was initiated aiming for the GP of the following year. The result was a groundbreaking new machine, based on the lightweight, compact saloon, the Skyline 1500. With its wheelbase and nose extended by 7.8 inches, and packed with a 6 cylinder 2L engine from the Gloria, the car was named the Skyline GT.
The Skyline GT was already a monster just with the combination of this chassis and engine, but the options were impressive as well. At the pinnacle of this was the three double choke Weber carburettors - 6 barrels, for 6 cylinders. The resulting power output was 123 BHP, with a maximum speed of 112 mph. The 4-speed floor-shift gearbox was given a 5th gear overdrive, and a limited slip differential and oil cooler were added, putting in everything required for a competition machine with no compromise. The later nicknamed 'Ska-G' that appeared on the Suzuka wreaked havoc on the circuit, driven by the famous '7 Samurai' drivers of Prince. At one point, while being driven by Tetsu Ikuzawa it even miraculously overtook the racing Porsche 904.
As if to commemorate this incredible run, a Skyline 2000GT, with all the optional high performance features built in, was released in February 1965. This was the GT-B. The standard spec model was then called the GT-A. And this was the first step in a history of aspirations, that lead up to the future GT-R.
