Sedan / Competition
With the 29th Safari Rally in 1981, this vehicle achieved a historical first by winning three championships in a row (a first too for the S. Mehta/M. Doughty). That year, in addition to a pair of Violets prepared to Group 4 specifications with powerful twin-cam heads, the Nissan team entered a Violet, Bluebird and Silvia, each prepared to Group 2 specifications. The result was that Nissan monopolized the top four places.
