Show or Display : Approved Vehicles September 2022

Sean Morris Posted on October 20, 2022

R34 N1 now eligible for Show or Display

Show or Display is a NHTSA or Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard exemption for specific petitioned vehicles.  Each type of vehicle must be petitioned and approved as a type by the NHTSA. Once the type is approved each individual vehicle has to get approved prior to import, and must comply with the requirements of Show or Display 

This latest list has the notable addition of the R34 N1.  According to GT-R Registry there were 38 Vspec N1 R34 GT-R, and 18 Vspec II N1 R34 GT-R. 


A vehicle eligible for Show or Display may receive NHTSA approval to be driven on the highway. The odometer must not register more than 2,500 miles in a 12-month period. NHTSA approval of limited on-road use is to allow the vehicle to be driven to and from nearby displays of similar automobiles. Another reason permission is granted is to maintain the vehicle’s engine, braking, lighting, and other dynamic systems in good working order. The vehicle is still required to meet EPA requirements. If the original engine in the vehicle will be replaced with a non-original engine to meet EPA requirements, it must be identified in your application since it may impact on the technological or historical significance of the vehicle.
