This year at the 2008 Tokyo Auto Salon (January 11 to 13) Nissan comes with five concepts and two sports cars.

Two Skyline concepts

Nissan is bringing several concepts to one of the many local tuning shows, the Tokyo Auto Salon. Japanese are mad for individualising their cars, ranging from insane exhaust tip action to the more down-to-earth body kits.

This year at the 2008 Tokyo Auto Salon (January 11 to 13) Nissan comes with five concepts and two race cars. The term concept is a bit broad in this case since it mainly refers to a new body kit / suspension / wing etc and not an actual concept study. Nissan has released images of the cars but no details so we have to wait for the nitty-gritty until the show.

First in line is the new Skyline, both in coupe and sedan guise. The Skyline is piggybacking on the GT-R and seems ready for a sportier package, the aerosports package for the coupe and simply aero for the sedan.

Second are the SUV's like the Nissan X-Trail X-tremer and Dualis (or Qashqai) Premium Concept. The X-Trail is tuned in-house while Autech has taken care of the Dualis. Autech also received a Nissan Caravan to play with which resulted in the Rider Concept, we can only imagine it can house multiple surfboards judging by the decals.

Finally Nissan will bring two race cars, the NisMo Z Super GT 2007 and Endless Advan Z. Neither are the much anticipated GT-R racecar though.

Stay tuned for further details closer to the show.
