Seemingly a design study, named by 'Shinichiro Sakurai & Design Team', subtitled the 'Skyline Essential'. Something I've not seen before. The car that is, not the tasteful panel clock.

Anyone have any more details on the study, or perhaps more renderings? You can certainly see where the surf-line fits in... Love it! Neko.

Yes its a design sketch by Sakurai-san! Here are some more early sketches/drawings. You can see where some of the C130 shape comes from here too, I think.

Time permit I sometimes jump on the forum. Tonight I was looking for pictures of Eb Z and stumbled on this thread.

This caught my attention as I actually own that exact clock in the original picture. I'll post pictures and more details about it tomorrow.
