Attached Image Nissan is so confident in the system that it says it allows for hands-off driving while the car is cruising in a given lane. However, drivers who want to switch lanes must still do it themselves. Of course, the system also takes note of the driver's attention level. It will turn on the vehicle’s hazard lights and bring the car to a slow stop if the driver fails to respond to its alerts.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

Very unlike the Skyline in my memory. This is just a re-badge Infiniti Q50, for the Japanese market.

 

Put it in a cruel way, the Q50 went for a plastics surgery, and wanting to look sportier, opt for a GTR "face". Hahaha...
