From wild race cars to modified vans, Nissan will showcase a full line of vehicles at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon.

Always one of the major attractions at the annual aftermarket and motorsports expo, the Nissan both will show 10 interesting and exciting vehicles, including the first viewing of the DeltaWing race car in Japan.

Highlights include the GT-R NISMO GT3 race car, as well as an all-new 370Z NISMO Z-Challenge Spec racer, designed to compete in a spec series in Japan.

On the lighter side of tuning two “Personalization” concepts will be shown, including a Juke and a modified version of the new Nissan Note. Moving more towards on-road performance are two new NISMO models, the Juke NISMO and the Leaf NISMO Performance Package, which includes a special aero kit.

As for the Japan-special vehicles, there will be a modified people mover, the NV350 Caravan Rider Transporter, while on a smaller side is the Note Rider, designed to give more style to something small and practical.

Starting Friday, January 11 and running until Sunday, January 13th at the Makuhari Messe exhibition hall in Chiba Prefecture, look for live coverage from AutoGuide.
