1987 Nissan MID4-II

MID4 is an experimental car to exhibit the achievements of R&D at motor shows. The model name comes from a supercar with a midship engine layout and a four-wheel-drive system. This car “MID4 II” was exhibited at the 27th Tokyo Motor Show in 1987.

Mounted engine, “VG30DETT”, 3-liter V6 DOHC twin-turbo with intercooler, generated 330ps. The suspension type was Double Wishbone for the front and Multilink for the rear with a steering system named “HICAS.” Although this model was never sold in the market, many of its new technologies were applied to the Nissan 300ZX (Z32) rolled out in 1989 and the Skyline GT-R (R32).
