Nissan Skyline – this is probably the case when, despite good reliability, the main driver of success was not even she, but sports status. “Skye”, generation after generation, received coupe versions with a clear bias towards the idea of ​​a “driver’s car”, gained popularity among fans of active driving, participated in races – official and street – and at the same time retained their concept, one of the key elements of which were inline six-cylinder motors.
