Nissan has unveiled the new Skyline Nismo, a high-performance model with 414 horsepower. Limited to just 1,000 units exclusively for the Japanese market, this car comes with sporty enhancements and aesthetic upgrades.

As you can see from the images, we’re looking at a slightly modified Infiniti Q50 if we’re comparing it to what we have here in the United States. However, in Japan, the Skyline fundamentally is a Q50 where Nissan has taken a well-respected platform and done a few things, things that we won’t get to see here on our side of the pond, unfortunately.

Its suspension has been specially tuned to reduce roll, and it features sticky tires on exclusive 19-inch Enkei wheels. The twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine now generates 414 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque, with sport and sport+ driving modes optimizing its performance.

Aesthetic touches include a Nismo-specific body kit, red and black trim, and Recaro seats. The Skyline Nismo is set to launch in September, with prices starting at 7,880,400 yen (around $55,000 USD). Additionally, a limited version inspired by the classic Skyline GT is planned for 2024.

For now, we can hope that Nissan gets a little more exciting for the US market before EVs take over, because we’re already big fans of the Q50 and Q60 Red Sport 400 and its VQ engine. Having it just in the new Nissan Z only does so much for us. Remember the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge? Yeah, that would have been really cool.
