Watch footage from 76 years of Nissan motorsports, starting with the monopoly-piece looking 1936 Datsun racer to the futuristic 2012 Nissan DeltaWing. The video commemorates the new NISMO headquarters grand opening February 26, which will shift the seat of Nissan’s performance arm from Omori, Tokyo to its new home in Tsurumi, Yokohama (the former location of Nissan R&D).
The move coincides coincide with NISMO’s recently announced brand expansion plans, which will include a road-going version of the NISMO R35 GT-R.
With architecture inspired by a katana, the new motorsports hub is a clear indication of where the brand is headed and Nissan’s plans for paying homage to their heritage and performance roots. Many of the race cars formerly locked away in the private Zama warehouse will be on display here, where enthusiasts will be able to view them up close.
