Nissan will showcase a Japan-spec model, revealing no clues as to what changes - if any - Australian buyers can expect from the local model when it arrives here early next year.

Its 3.8-litre twin turbo V6 "VR38" engine features plasma-sprayed bores and a special twin-turbo exhaust manifold system, producing 353kW at 6400rpm and 588Nm from 3200 to 5200rpm.

The Melbourne Motor Show opens from 5pm on February 29.
