was founded in the 1930s and since then has made a name for itself in creating some of the car industry's most innovative styling and cutting-edge performance vehicles.

Nissan Silvia Spec R Aero

The Silvia Spec R Aero was Nissan's best limited-edition vehicle. Nothing could beat its 250-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Small modifications like a six-speed manual, improved brakes, and four-wheel drive helped this vehicle fly past its competitors! Plus, its enormous back wing made it difficult to miss.

Nissan Juke-R

Nissan took an oddball automobile and reworked the engine, incorporating GT-R components, to produce this beast. This five-speed dual-clutch transmission and 545-hp 3.8-liter turbocharged V6 powered this four-wheel-drive debut in 2015. This concept car roared louder and drove faster than any other in its class, reaching 60 mph in 3.7 seconds.

1969-1973 Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R

Our list would be incomplete without the original Skyline GT-R. Initially, the automobile had a 160hp 2.0L six-cylinder and a five-speed manual transmission. When Nissan decided to keep the GT-R as a luxury sports vehicle, they constructed their Z model from the Skyline. 

Nissan Stagea Autech 260RS

Yes—there is a wagon in my sports car lineup, and for good reason. The same GT-R engine roars in this family-oriented errand running wagon. Add in the manual transmission and all-wheel drive and the boring wagon can elicit drool from the sports car dreamers, only in Japan though.

Nissan 240Z/260Z/280Z

The legend, the myth, the…car? Yes, this is the iconic style of the sports car that has earned it the title of best-looking sports car ever produced. It is widely produced and dubbed the poor man's luxury vehicle. It may not have won speed races, but it could keep up with the best of them with its 2.4-liter six-cylinder engine.

Nissan GT-R

A 3.8-liter V6 engine powers the Nissan GT-R, also known as the Godzilla automobile. This behemoth of a car can speed around others in its class and create over 600 hp in NISMO condition. This monstrosity features a dual-clutch transmission and advanced all-wheel-drive that blows the competition' tires off.

The golden seat goes to the Nissan R390 GT1

The R390 GT1 is equipped with a 3.5-liter V8 engine and a sequential six-speed transmission. It travels at a top speed of nearly 220 miles per hour and is capable of covering a quarter-mile in just over 11 seconds. Every speed enthusiast fantasizes about this Nissan, yet just two were ever produced. One of these extremely powerful automobiles has found its way into the hands of a fortunate private owner. Good luck locating the only individual on the planet who can claim to own the world's quickest car at the time.
