Violet chalks up 4 consecutive Safari Rally wins

From 1970, when the Bluebird came in 1st overall for the first time, Nissan dominated the Safari Rally. Following on from the Bluebird (P510) and Fairlady 240Z (HS30), in 1978 it was the turn of the Violet (PA10) to take up the challenge. And it performed magnificently: from 1979 to 1982, it was the overall winner four times in a row - a first in the history of the Safari Rally. The victorious car in 1981 and 1982 conformed to Group 4 specifications (DOHC, 16 valves).

The Group 4 cars were powered by the LZ20B (DOHC) engine.

Due to the dry sump design, the oil tank was installed in the trunk (far left).
