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

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.
