Motul Autech GT-R
Nissan GT-Rs won three out of the eight total races in the GT500 class of the 2012 Super GT Series, with the S Road Mola GT-R taking both the Team Championships and the Drivers Title for the second straight year. The Motul Autech GT-R was one of the racecars that competed in the GT500 class of the 2012 Super GT Series.
Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3
The 2013 Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3, which made its debut in March 2012, is an improved version of the 2012 model, with better engine output, increased reliability and enhanced aerodynamics. The racecar is in compliance of FIA GT3 regulation and will continue its assault on racing events all over the world, including the Super GT, Super Taikyu and the British GT Championship.
This revolutionary new racecar has garnered worldwide attention since its debut last year. Using only half the fuel supply and tires of a conventional racecar, the DeltaWing competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June 2012 and finished 5th overall at the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) finale in October 2012 in Atlanta, Georgia.
NV350 Caravan Rider Transporter
With grandiose styling and exceptional cargo capacity, the custom-built NV350 Caravan Rider is truly a commercial van for the new generation. Not only is it a capable workhorse, it also excels as an ideal recreational/leisure vehicle for those with active lifestyles.
Thanks to its powerful exterior design, the Note Rider has high dose of flair for a compact car. The dark-plated front fascia and aluminum wheels that highlight this Auto Salon-special model exude a high level of “coolness.”
