New images attached of the upcoming Nissan Skyline Coupe JDM

The Japanese automaker Nissan Motor Co., Ltd announced yesterday that it has developed a "pop-up engine hood" that will fit in the all-new Skyline coupe this autumn to "help reduce head impact injuries in the event of a pedestrian collision." In such an event, a sensor "incorporated in the bumper activates the pop-up control-unit which in turn will trigger an explosive actuator that raises the hood." Despite Nissan's commitment to development of safety technology, Jaguar was the first car manufacturer to unveil a "Deployable Bonnet System", when it introduced the pedestrian safety system in its XKR sports car in 2005.
