Who did you 'hear' that from? It's rubbish.

A KPGC10? Obviously not.

Seems you are looking at £20k for a nice one.
A KPGC10? No, I'm afraid that's nowhere near enough.

Moff, the car in the picture on your first post is not a KPGC10. It's a KGC10 that's had GT-R badges stuck onto it.

Nothing wrong with a good 20-footer lookey-likey, but if want a real KPGC10 it's a whole different kettle of fish to a modified KGC10, and the prices reflect that fact. If you only want 'the look' of a KPGC10, and you are happy to own a modified KGC10, then there's no point asking for prices / info about KPGC10s......

The main difference between a KGC10 and a KPGC10 is something around 4~5 million Yen at the moment.

I don't want to be rude but - in my opinion - if you are really interested in learning the differences, and you want to buy a KGC10 ( or even a real KPGC10 ) then you will be prepared to do some in-depth research on the subject yourself, rather than just having it served up to you on a plate.

So is your expression of interest just a passing whimsy, or are you serious? What you do next will tell you one way or the other.

There are a lot of them around in Japan but many are not GT-Rs and some are in pretty tatty condition. One we saw on our last GTROC trip to Japan was a GTR but looked like the seats hadn't seen a repair in twenty years! It also had all the GTR 'bits' removed so as to make it look less like a GTR - Yes even Japan has 'collectors on BMXs'. :(
Needless to say this was still about £20k if you wanted it - not that it was for sale.

I meant the actual differences in trim etc.

I was the one who PM'd you asking about having one as a wedding car

Where do I find info ?

What's "them"?

The subject of this thread is the KPGC10 model. How can a KPGC10 not be a GT-R? :confused:

"GTR 'bits'" being what, in this instance? If it had a PGC10, KPGC10 or KPGC110 chassis code then it was a GT-R, regardless of what was - or was not - attached to it. Part Number One is the unibody itself. You could say that Part Number Two was the S20 engine, so did this mystery car have a proper 'R' body and S20, or not?

So it was not for sale, but it still had a 'price' on it? What currency is the "320k" in?



One thing is for sure, there's more nonsense and half baked hearsay written about the C10 and C110 series GT-Rs on English language web forums than just about any other car.

I recommend you start with the excellent 'C10 SKYLINE COMPLETE BOOK', first published by Geibun Mooks in late 2008 as one of their Nostalgic Hero specials, with ISBN978-4-87465-917-5.

Start there.

PS30-SB, you do seem to be coming across as 'annoyed' ?

I know nothing about these cars, and don't pretend to. Anyone pointing me in the right direction is helpful :)

Looking under that title, it appears to be in Japanese, is it available in English ?

'Mildly frustrated' might be more accurate. I have my tongue planted firmly in my cheek, though......

Nope.

The pictures are in 'English' though. :)

Why is tongue in cheek ?

I can look at pretty pictures on the web, or here The KPGC10 Skyline Picture Thread - Skyline Owners Club - The Nissan Skyline Enthusiast Community

Saying that though, there are probably many incorrectly named versions on there.

Do you know the spec differences, or where possible to find the spec differences ?

I'm guessing only trim levels are the main differences, as the Turbo engine was not out then, and technology was a little behind then ?
