Pristine Nissan Skyline GT-R Heads to Auction at Pebble Beach

This is better than any $75 million Ferrari if you ask me. A pristine 1972 Nissan Skyline GT-R is headed to the auction block this weekend at Pebble Beach. It’s only one of about 1,000 made between 1970 and 1972, and it’s expected to come with a hefty price tag. With a 160 horsepower six-cylinder engine and a five-speed manual transmission, it may not be the most powerful car by today’s standards, but in 1972, it was tearing up the track alongside Toyota Coronas and Mazda RX-3s.

The one seen here has been fully restored from the ground up with a few additions like front disc and rear drum brakes. The wheels, and even the steering wheel, though, are original from 1972. But here’s the real kicker — there are only 42,000 original km (approx. 26,000 miles) on the odometer, meaning it’s about as close to new as you’re going to find in one of these.

If you’re interested, we suggest you move quick. The auction will take place on Aug. 16 at Pebble Beach, and the car is estimated to go somewhere between $125,000 to $175,000. And there’s no reserve. PHOTOS: See More of the 2002 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II
