23. Nissan Skyline 2000 GT Kenmeri
The first GT-R, the Hakosuka proved to be a good halo car for Nissan. It showed how competent and fast the cars Nissan could build. That was despite limiting its appeal in the domestic and some select Asian markets. So, in 1972, Nissan introduced the second generation of its fantastic 2000 GT-R they named the Kenmeri.
It was a redesigned car with almost unchanged mechanics. This means the high-revving 2.0-liter six-cylinder retained its 160 HP rating. However, the suspension, brakes, and steering received some minor modifications. The Kenmeri nickname came from a popular Japanese TV commercial.
It showed a young couple and the new Skyline. The viewers found this ad interesting so the car got its name from the two characters from the marketing campaign. This generation is extremely rare since Nissan produced it for one year only in 1973. The total production number was just 197, all in RHD configuration.
