Nissan Cedric

NissanĀ CedricThe Nissan Cedric is a large luxurious automobile produced by Nissan since 1960. It was developed to provide upscale transportation, competing with the Prince Skyline and Gloria which were later merged into the Nissan family. In later years, the Nissan Skyline was positioned as a sports sedan/coupe, whereas the Nissan Gloria was turned into a sporty version of the Cedric (with identical styling but using a different radiator grille and front & rear light clusters). The Y34 entered production in 1998 and lasted through 2004. The line-up consisted of the 250L and LV (naturally aspirated 2.5 liter V-6), 300LV (naturally aspirated 3 liter V-6) and 300LX/300VIP (3 liter turbo V-6), all with rear wheel drive; additionally there was the 250L/LV Four featuring all-wheel-drive and a turbocharged version of Nissan’s 2.5 liter inline six. Prices (in 1999) ranged from Y 3.110.000 for a base 250 L to Y 4.940.000 for the ultra-luxurious 300VIP.
