The kit also has two model cars and motor porters

The Japanese postal service has released a set of anniversary stamps that are dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the Nissan Skyline GT-R. Complete with brands are also car models and images of the legendary S20 and RB26 engines.

A total of 10 brands for 67 yen each: eight for each generation of the sports car and two more for the legendary S20 and RB26 engines. Also in the kit you can find car models, ranging from the legendary Hakosuka, the “Skyline” of the first generation, ending with the latest sports car with the R35 index.

At the same time, “Hakosuka” in a silver shade is presented in a set in a coupe. Despite the fact that the sedan introduced in 1969 was the first in the lineup, it was the two-door version that received the status of the most significant version of the classic Skyline GT-R.

The kit itself is packaged in a box that depicts all generations of a sports car. At the same time, the cost of anniversary stamps is quite low – only 4,600 yen, but they decided to make the print run limited: 5,000 copies were produced.

In the fall, on one of the Japanese sites, another unusual accessory appeared for fans of the iconic GT-R sports car. A small sandwich maker with a logo of the coveted three letters went on sale. At the same time, the manufacturer claims that the management of Nissan Motor does not mind, and all production of the kitchen appliance will be carried out under their strict supervision.
