YOKOHAMA, Japan – The all-new Japan-market Fairlady Z will be among the highlights as Nissan displays a variety of models, from the recently unveiled Z GT500 racecar to exciting customized Nissan Note models, at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2022.
Nissan will shine the spotlight on the all-new Fairlady Z, showing off several versions including a customized Z concept, fitting the show’s customizing atmosphere. Visitors to the Nissan booth will also see customized Nissan Caravans, custom Nissan Note Autech models, and lineup models such as the all-new Nissan Ariya, a special edition Kicks, and more.
Among the models on display are:
|Japan-market Nissan Fairlady Z
Globally known as Z, the all-new Fairlady Z production model, which made its world premiere last August, will make its Japan-market debut. As an approachable sports car for the modern age, the all-new Z offers attractive styling, advanced technology and the thrill of exploring the open road to past and future generations of Z drivers and fans.

Nissan Fairlady Z customized proto
As a nod to the Z’s heritage and fan enthusiasm, a one-off customized Fairlady Z takes the all-new model as a base, and introduces exterior styling elements.
|Nissan Z GT500 racecar
Set to take on the 2022 SUPER GT season, the Nissan Z GT500 symbolizes Nissan’s spirit of taking on challenges and bringing excitement to life. The racing machine joins the spread of Z-cars in the Nissan booth.
|Nissan Caravan Mountain Base concept
Based on the new Caravan, the striking van takes the concept of “base camp” to a new level. The van comes equipped with a roof-mounted foldout solar panel, with more solar panels along the side, replacing the standard glass. Inside, creature comforts include a slim work station, utility-driven walls and a digital fireplace for a relaxing eco-friendly option off the beaten path. The concept also looks the part, with a tough textured finish that can take on rough terrain and brush and a full wood-grain wrap for that classic mountain lodge feeling.
|Nissan Caravan Myroom concept
Designed to be a relaxing place to share with family or friends, the Nissan Caravan Myroom concept takes an NV350 and amplifies the interior with a cozy makeover, perfect for a weekend getaway, brunch chat or a rest during a long journey. Occupants can enjoy the built-in couch with a view when sliding doors are open, and with bookshelves and cupboards, time will fly by as you relax in this modern lounge space. A stowable bed can also be setup after a long day of adventuring.
|Nissan GT-R NISMO special edition
As the company’s flagship GT-R representing a continuous evolution toward the ultimate in driving pleasure, the Nissan GT-R NISMO special edition features a NISMO-exclusive clear-coated carbon fiber hood, NACA style hood scoops and 20-inch aluminum forged wheels with a red accent. Under the hood, new, high-precision, weight-balanced parts with tighter tolerances deliver snappier revs and quicker turbo spooling.

|Nissan Note Aura NISMO
