2007 Nissan Skyline Coupe 50th Anniversary Edition


Nissan Skyline celebrated its 50th anniversary today in grand style at an event held at Tokyo’s new Midtown development. Dating back to 1957, the Skyline is a legendary car in the Nissan line-up with a long heritage of style and performance, beloved by motoring fans all over the world.

Taking this opportunity, Nissan also showed the all-new Skyline Coupe today, making its first appearance in Japan. The new Skyline Coupe is scheduled for release this fall in Japan.

Present at the celebrations were the chief engineers that led the product development of each generation Skyline, including Shinichiro Sakurai, chief development engineer of the first Skyline model. The event featured a film presentation that reflected the evolution of the Skyline design, performance and image throughout the different eras of each generation Skyline.

A fashion show entitled “Skyline GT Collection” was held in commemoration of the anniversary, featuring twelve of today’s most popular fashion models, including Yoko Horiuchi. The models were dressed in specifically designed outfits, inspired by each generation Skyline.

Celebrity guests included musician Joe Hisaishi, actor Ken Watanabe, while major league baseball player Ichiro offered his congratulations via a video message. Each of these celebrities share in a common trait with the Skyline i.e. that they were born in Japan but have since gained fame and recognition in the global arena. Mr. Hisaishi’s latest composition, I Will Be, written for the Skyline’s new TV commercial, was performed for the first time by Mai Hisaishi, who is also featured on the commercial.

I wonder how it feels like riding on this car running it at top speed. That is an experience I want to attain ASAP.

The 370z coupe is not bad at all, it’s more on classy sports car than racing sports car.

It’s a G37 in the United States, and a Skyline in Japan. There is now a GTR in the United States, not a Skyline. Somewhere along the way, the GTR & Skyline came apart.

u so damn stupid this is how all skylines look now why do u think they took the skyline name from the gtr cuz they ain the same vehicle any more ya jerk off.....go bak in your dug out mothers an com bak with ur brain attached ok.... y

Your a big idiot for saying that the skyline is a Infinity g35. In the first part it is true that it is a Infinity G35 but ONLY in the USA!!!When importing the skyline from japan to the USA they needed to change the engine and the emission because of the laws set in the USA. so it is not the original skyline from japan so changing it to g3 was a proper way. In Japan it is called the Nissan Skyline V35. Also Nissan owns Infinity its their way off selling Japanese based luxury cars. Its the same thing with Toyota with Lexus and Honda with Acura. The same process came with the importing of the NSX and now its going to happen with the new Toyota Supra which will probably be changed into a Lexus super car. So next time, check your mouth before talking. And by the way Nissan is way better than Toyota based upon performance, racing heritage and history. Check whats popular, a skyline or any Toyota.

i don’t care wat anyone says that ain no skyline that is a g35 infiniti wit a nissan badge, nissan u for doin this.......Toyota is way better!!
