The new Nissan Skyline has been launched in Japan

Nissan has introduced the 12th generation Skyline in Japan and the carmaker says it was developed under the concept, "attraction, sophistication and high-performance driving."

According to Nissan the new Skyline's long nose, sharply raked A-pillar, forward-leaning roofline, and fluidly curving character line which wrap around the rear wheel arches, express "dynamic motion" and enhance the rear wheel drive proportions.

The car's interior incorporates a cockpit feel with the front dashboard and centre stack designed to be driver-centric.

The aluminum trim finish was inspired by the texture of traditional Japanese rice paper called ?Washi?, whereas the optional wood trim is made of bubinga, a high-quality wood commonly used in high-end furniture pieces.

The Skyline is powered by the new V6 engines. The 3.5-litre version generates 232 kW while the 2.5-litre develops 165 kW.
