Prince R380A-I(1966: R380)

The prototype race car R380 challenged not only races but also the international speed records. Its first challenge was done in August 1965. R380-AI recorded better time than the international records in 4 categories, but the records were certified only as domestic records because JARI (at Yatabe, Ibaraki) courses were not authorized by FIA.
The second challenge was done on 8th October 1967 after the victory at the Japan GP in 1966. The driver, TatsuYokoyama, set the world records in the following 7 categories; 50km / 50miles / 100km / 100miles / 200km / 200miles / 1hour.
This is the actual car of that R380-AII. The cowl is longer than that of a race car by 80mm in order to increase the maximum speed.
