1983 Super Silhouette Skyline KDR30
Perhaps the most popular and immediately identifiable Super Silhouette race car, Masahiro Hasemi’s Skyline notched five wins in ’83. Although the cars were mandated to retain key stock surfaces, their engines and underpinnings were leading edge for the times, built to FIA Group 5 specs. Hasemi would ride the Skyline wave to the R31 where he won the JTC championship in 1989 and on to the R32 Godzilla models, winning the championship again in 1991 and ’92.
