Godzilla’s Grandfather

Lego Nissan Skyline GTR

Nissan’s GTR hasn’t always been a 600bhp all-wheel-drive supercar killer. In fact the GTR started life simply as the sporty variant in the humble Skyline range of mid-size sedans. Powered by a 160bhp two-litre inline-6 the original 1970s Skyline GTR was quick enough in its day and it became a successful racing car in Japan and beyond.

This lovely Speed Champions style creation depicts the second generation Skyline GTR built from 1973, of which just 197 were made before the oil crisis put an end to production and the GTR nameplate was hibernated until 1989.

Legomasino is the builder behind it and he’s recreated the 1974 Nissan/Datsun Skyline GTR beautifully. Head over to Flickr via the link above to see more of Legomasino’s superb images.
