The KPGC10’s successor, the KPGC110, was released in 1973 after its introduction at the 1972 Tokyo Motor Show. Powered by a 1989 cc I6 S20 engine, the second generation GT-R delivered power to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual gearbox.
This edition of the GT-R was also known as the “Kenmeri” Skyline, due to a popular advertisement featuring a young couple (Ken and Mary) enjoying the Hokkaido countryside. Unfortunately, the second generation GT-R was unsuccessful with the gasoline crisis hitting the early 1970s. A total of 197 cars were built by the end of its short production run. For the next decade, this was the last GT-R until the production of the R32 in 1989.
