LB Works Nissan Hakosuka: A Classic of the Early 70s

The original vehicle on which this 1/18 scale model is based is the Nissan LB Works Hakosuka 2Dr in matte black. This special classic belongs to the third generation of the Nissan Skyline, which was produced from 1968 to 1972. The name "Hakosuka" comes from Japanese and means "Box-Skyline," reflecting the boxy design of the car. The Skyline was developed by Shinichiro Sakurai and other engineers who played a significant role in making the Skyline one of Japan's most famous sports cars. The third generation follows the Prince Skyline, which holds a prestigious position in Japanese automotive history.

A Legendary Sports Car with Impressive Technology

The Nissan LB Works Hakosuka is equipped with a powerful 2.0-liter inline-six engine known as the S20 engine. This engine was originally developed for motorsport and delivers an impressive 160 horsepower at 7,000 rpm. Thanks to its lightweight and excellent chassis tuning, the Hakosuka was a true performance car of its time. It achieved a top speed of around 200 km/h (124 mph) and an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in just under 8 seconds. The Hakosuka was known for its precise steering and agile handling, making it a popular choice on the racetrack.

The 1/18 scale model presented here is from Ignition Models and is made of high-quality resin. It is an authentic replica of the Nissan LB Works Hakosuka 2Dr, although the model has been modified in the collection of Modelly member "MB-TuningCars" and does not represent the original product of the manufacturer. The matte black paint and detailed reproduction of the front grille and headlights are particularly striking. On the rear view of the model, the accurately reproduced taillights and distinctive rear spoiler can be seen. These high-quality details make the model a coveted piece among collectors.

Historical Context and Cultural Significance

In 1968, when the third generation of the Nissan Skyline was first built, significant historical events occurred. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in the USA, which had major political and social repercussions. At the same time, the Beatles' song "Hey Jude" was released and gained worldwide recognition. These examples illustrate the temporal context of the vehicle. The matte black paint and detailed reproductions of the vehicle parts make the model a fascinating sight. In the foreground is the distinctive front of the car with the LB Works kit, accentuated by the beefy intercooler cover and robust bumpers.
