The Nissan Skyline H/T 2000GT-R (Japanese: 日産スカイライン二千GT-R) was produced in Japan from 1972-1973 as a special sports variant of the C110 Skyline, the successor to the Nissan Skyline H/T 2000GT-X, which was from the First (C10) Generation of the Nissan Skyline (commonly nicknamed "Kenmeri" after the Skyline called "Ken and Mary's Skyline" used in TV advertising in Japan. Only 197 of this Special Sports car were produced, as the oil crisis of 1973 struck Japan almost as much as it did the US. The 2000GT-R was sold only at Specialty dealerships in Japan and the 2000GT-R version was exclusively sold in Japan.
This casting is right-hand drive, as is the standard for Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) vehicles.

For the 2014 release of the Nissan Skyline H/T 2000GT-R, Hot Wheels coloured and detailed the car in the pattern used on the 2000GT-R Skyline that was debuted at the 1972 Tokyo Motor Show, but with a '68' on the side in lieu of the '73' that was used on the real show car. In 2016, the Nissan Skyline H/T 2000GT-R was released in the Car Culture lineup as part of the Japan Historics.(Japanese translation seen on the series' packaging: 日本ヒストリックス )In the Japan Historics line, the Skyline was decked out in the colours of Japanese Police patrol cars. Ironically, the KPGC110 Skyline was never actually used by the Police in Japan due to its high fuel consumption. The Kenmeri Skyline's predecessor, the Hakosuka version of the Skyline was used by Police in Japan as a patrol car in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
