Custom Cedric V8

This isn't just another 'bagged retro Nissan. This is a precision-engineered masterpiece.
It's a 330-series Nissan Cedric, running a 4.1-litre V8 with hand-crafted throttle-bodies. The live-axle rear end has been junked in favour of a bespoke, CAD-designed setup of mechanical trickery machined from billet aluminium. The car rides so low thanks to a unique inboard airbag setup, and everything underneath has been engineered to allow the car to run that low in day-to-day use, right down to the custom ovalised exhausts. This is, in short, the world's greatest Cedric. And that's not hyperbole, that's fact.
You can learn about the build here and here, and see more photos here and here.
