Nissan is bringing at least 14 cars to next year’s Tokyo Auto Salon.

Known to showcase mostly modified cars, the Tokyo Auto Salon is an annual gathering dedicated to enthusiasts that find stock cars boring. Nissan will put its NISMO sub-brand on display with the Rogue, Note S, Micra/March, Juke, GT-R N-Attack and Serena minivan. Other customized vehicles heading to the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon include the Leaf Aero Style, Sentra S Touring, Dayz Bolero and Rider as well as the Elgrand Rider Black Line.

Of course no Nissan booth at the Tokyo Auto Salon would be complete without a race car, and next year’s attendee will be the Motul Autech GT-R that won the series championship in the 2015 Super GT GT500 class.

It will be interesting to see if Nissan decides to bring the Rogue NISMO to the U.S., joining the Juke, 370Z and GT-R. This won’t be the first time we have seen the Versa Note NISMO, as it was shown last year. It’s still unclear if the Japanese automaker will offer the accessorized version in the U.S.
