Nissan Skyline R31. Promotional video.
The R31 Skyline of 1986 was a natural evolution on the R30 shape, and also
this one was loosely based on the Laurel platform (C32). The design was
slightly larger and squarer than previous Skylines. It was available as a
Sedan, Hardtop sedan, Coupe and station wagon. Affectionately known as the
"Seventhsu" or simply "7th Sukairain" by owners, due to it being the 7th
The R31 Skyline introduced many new technologies and features. The HR31 was
the first Skyline to be equipped with the new RB-series of engines. The R31
RB engines are often referred to as "Red Top" engines because of the red
cam covers. There were three variants. The earliest series of DOHC RB
engines used the NICS (Nissan Induction Control System) injection system
with 12 very small intake runners, and a butterfly system to divide the
intake ports in half for better low RPM performance. Later versions used
ECCS (Electronically Concentrated Control System) engine management,
discarded the twelve tiny runners for six much larger ones (though they
retained twelve ports on the head, so there was a splitter plate), and
received a slightly larger turbocharger.
Nissan's RD28, a 2.8 straight-6 engine, featured for a diesel option.
Another technological first for the R31 was the introduction of Nissan's
proprietary 4-wheel steering system, dubbed HICAS (High Capacity Active
Steering). The R31 series were also the only models in the Skyline family
to feature a 4-door hardtop variation. These models were generally badged
as the Passage GT.
The R31 Skyline was also produced in Australia, with a 3.0 L motor (RB30E)
available in sedan or wagon form, as well as a four-cylinder version called
the Nissan Pintara. The wagon had the same front style as the coupe and
sedan—the only difference being that it lacked the four round brake
lights that had been a consistent element of Skyline design (except for the
R31 series one/two which had rectangular taillights with a solid bar
through the centre which was also shared by the Pintara). These cars were
manufactured in Australia due to the heavy import laws which made it
expensive to bring cars into Australia.
29,305 R31 Skylines were also manufactured and sold in South Africa in
4-door sedan form between 1987 and 1992. These were the last Skylines seen
in South Africa. Power came from either the RB30E 3.0 straight-6 motor,
RB20E 2.0 straight-6 motor or the CA20S 4-cylinder powerplant.

A car explodes while going up a pretty steep sand dune, when the driver is
finally able to get out there's no brakes on the car so it rolls down real
fast with flames getting bigger and smoke getting blacker.
