Judging from the headlights I guess it could be a Cresta GX71.

There never was a Skyline R31 Super Silhouette in the Group 5 races, but if there had been one this R31 would have been close:

Earlier this week I found a bunch of pictures of the Nissan Bluebird 910 Super Silhouette racer:
These pictures are quite scarce as the Bluebird was the least favorable race car of the Nissan Group 5 racers: the Hasemi Skyline and Hoshino Silvia drew all attention away from this magnificent car!
Here you can have a good view of that amazing LZ20B engine:
2 litres, a twin cam, 16 valves and a big ass turbo was all it took to produce 570hp!

No idea if this little Civic actually was a race car or if it was a Super Silhouette racer, but it surely is an impressive little bugger!
The fenders have been extended to fit the deep dished SSR Mk II rims. Also a “sensible” aero package has been fitted, so who knows…
The Tomica Skyline RS KDR30 Super Silhouette was put up for display at the Nostalgic Car Show in Tokyo held in May 2011. During the show the KDR30 was, obviously, protected by a couple of fences, but this guy was lending a hand during the build up of the show and he was able to shoot these two amazing close up videos of the car:
Imagine being this close to such an icon! I would probably have serious issues to resist touching the car. 😛
In the second video we get a good glimpse what’s normally under the hood:
Just look at how big that intercooler is. Imagine how much air has to be pushed through that thing!
