1987 Nissan MID4 Mk II
- Twin turbo V6 w/ 330 hp
I’ve been obsessing over this beast lately.
Nissan debuted the first version in 1985 but it looked like a squashed Ferrari BB. The second concept, however, was totally beautiful and really highlights everything that was good about Japanese auto styling then.
Nissan never put the MID4 into production, although some features trickled down into the Skyline (4WD) and the second generation 240SX (the slender single strip taillight).
Honda was undoubtedly inspired by this aesthetically and mechanically with their very successful though less powerful and less sophisticated NSX.
Only three MID4 II were built: white, red and silver.
