Nissan will bring stellar roster of historic sports cars to New York show

Nissan to celebrate 50 years of performance at NYIAS Nissan

Nissan established its reputation for sports cars when it introduced the iconic 240Z and mind-blowing Skyline GT-R in 1969. To celebrate 50 years of performance, the company will roll into the New York International Auto Show next month with an “Ultimate Dream Garage” of lust-worthy cars.

Nissan provided a glimpse of the garage today with a photo of four vintage cars and four modern machines stacked in a two-level rack. The lower deck features commemorative editions of three R35-platform GT-Rs and a 370Z, although they’re shown in shadow, presumably to keep any special features secret until the big reveal next month.

The top tier features a 1970 240Z, a very rare 1972 Skyline 2000GT-R, a 1990 Skyline GT-R Group A racer flying the JTC Calsonic livery, and the 1995 NISMO GT-R LM Road Car.

We can’t quite tell because of the shadowing, but it looks to us like the modern wear the vintage cars’ color schemes, so you might just see a R35 GT-R swathed in that glorious blue Calsonic livery. Sweet.

Nissan will unveil the special edition 370Z and GT-R during the auto show media preview April 17 and 18. We can hardly wait.
