Asian Collector Cars At the Concours

The Cincinnati Concours d'Elegance was the first concours show to include a regular class for Asian cars. While this year's collection may be small there are some very nice vehicles that were on display.The Nissan Heritage Museum in Tennessee brought a 2009 GT-R right hand drive show car. This car was built strictly as a show car and does not have a VIN.
Also on display was a 2017 Acura NSX Coupe. This is number 171 of a limited run of 800. It has a 3.5 liter plus three electric motor all combining for 573 horse power.
This first generation 1974 Toyota Celica GT Coupe was built to go up against the Ford Mustang. But with a small 1968 cc four cylinder engine it was a bit under powered. Still it managed to snag Best in Class.
This 1966 Honda S-600 is one of the first cars from Honda. This car came from Canada as they were never officially sold in the USA.
The Nissan Heritage Collection also brought a 1965 Datsun 320 pick up truck. The truck has a half ton capacity and is powered by a 1200 cc four cylinder engine.
