When it came time to put together a story on the 22nd annual NISMO Festival at Japan's world-famous Fuji Speedway, I decided to break it into two different parts. Sifting through a virtual mountain of metrics and nerdy analytics, I found that there's two things you, the fan, really enjoy. The first is Nissan's Skyline family bloodline and, if we're being honest, what's not to like? An undeniable icon in our industry that carries so much weight on its shoulders that even the domestic crowd can be seen giving it "the nod" on occasion.
The second thing is photo galleries. So, rather than going on and on about how incredible the Skylines that attended the NISMO event really are, I added a few captions and other than that, I'm going to shut my mouth and direct you to the gallery below, chock full of Skyline goodness from multiple generations. Y'welcome.
Garage Active's full carbon-body R32 reaches a new level of appreciation in direct sunlight. We've spotted the lightweight, widebody conversion at a few different TAS visits and we even took a closer look again last year
You've no doubt "earned" this car and it sits comfortably in your Gran Turismo virtual garage.
People tend to take notice when R31House puts their touch on the boxy, 80s-era Skyline chassis. The group has deservedly earned a reputation for R31 chassis greatness.
Tuning giant Tomei displayed this RB26 GENESIS packed with some of their latest product, including a pair of their new T550B ball bearing turbos attached to their new manifold, outlet pipe, and Ti front pipe.
As clean and classy as Top Secret's "VR32" is on the outside, it's what's under the hood that had everyone talking when it debuted. Long gone is the RB powerplant, replaced by a VR38DETT heart from the R35.
Whether you're focused on the carbon fiber front bumper, the massive splitter and canards, the fender-exit exhaust, or the massive front-mount intercooler, this R32 is as much a show stopper as it is a competitor.

Before the Skyline carried the Nissan badge it was known as a Prince Motor Company car. This S54 Skyline GT from the mid-'60s served in Japanese Grand Prix competition and the next generation would transition to the new Nissan nameplate.
