The Nissan Laurel may not have supercar looks that turn every head as you cruise down the street. But car enthusiasts in the know go gaga over its boxy, somewhat luxurious mid-sized body that looks fantastic with just a little lower-body modification. For many car lovers, ownership of a Nissan Laurel has become a symbol of status and taste.
There were eight generations of the Nissan Laurel sedan during its 34 years of production from 1968 to 2002 (C30, C130, C230, C31, C32, C33, C34, C35). The styling changed dramatically during these many transformations and there were over two dozen engines, including 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder SOHC and DOHC variations, diesel engines, turbo models and displacements ranging anywhere from 1.8 to 3.0 liters. Luxury amenities included everything from 4-wheel steering and 4-wheel drive to the world’s first electric retractable door mirrors.
The Laurel was a fairly luxurious model, but smaller than Nissan’s top-end President. It loosely shared the same platform as the sportier Skyline, but was more luxurious in character. Nissan sold the Laurel in Asia, Europe and various other markets including Saudi Arabia, Chile and Panama until 1989 when distribution became limited to Japan. By 2002, the 34-year history of Laurel production was over, but the market for secondhand Laurels lives on.
Laurels are popular for street racing and drifting due to their front-engine, rear-wheel drive configuration and easy modification¬. Many components are shared with the Cefiro, Skyline and Silvia, meaning there are countless options available for upgrading performance and style. On YouTube, you can see examples of Laurels drifting all over the world, in Russia, Ireland and Japan’s MSC Challenge, for example.
The sleek white 1998 Nissan Laurel shown in the accompanying photos is an eighth-generation C35 — the final generation. It features a powerful, naturally aspirated 2.5-liter straight six-cylinder engine with variable valve timing that sounds wonderful and generates well over 200 hp (turbo versions of the C35 output 280 horses!). The model shown is equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission, a very comfortable interior and a capable suspension with front struts and rear multi links that contribute to excellent handling.

I hunted the internet for a broker I could trust with my money. JDC won and I am so happy I went with them. Matt and Yoshi are great. Matt puts up with a very demanding customer in me, I can certainly take up time. Matt sends me cars from the list I sent him, when I don't have time to check the auction. It is scary how accurate Matt is when I ask him to predict a selling price. He is always very close which sometimes is not fun but he really does know pricing. They have walked we through buying two cars now and have held my hand on both. I really apricate all the time and knowledge. After purchase they have also held my hand through the whole import process which can be daunting for a first timer. I am a dealer and Matt is great at suggesting other cars to import as well. I am very satisfied with my choice
What can I say? The service was friendly and good, and I got my car, which ended up being in a better condition than expected. Sure, there were couple of unforeseen snags that no-one had anticipated, but overall, it was an extremely positive experience.
Hommat meni hyvin, auto tuli Suomeen eikä noiden pyytämä hintakaan ollut mikään mahdottoman paha.
I bought a 1993 RX7 FD from these guys they are great! Communication was very good, and prompt! Iv has my car now for 6 months and have been loving it! I would recommend emailing them and looking into the options! They are upfront about price and will steer you into the right direction on what the car will take to own! I’m working with Yoshiro to buy another car now! I’m very pleased with the service I received. It can be scary sending lots of money to a person you don’t know for a car you have never seen, but they will come through with everything they tell you they will do!
