About Nissan President
Nissan President was a Japanese luxury limousine car introduced by Nissan in the 1960s as a luxury sedan sold only in the Japanese market. The President was comparable with Rolls-Royce models and the Toyota Century. It is mainly used by Japanese dignitaries, Parliament, government, congress man, and elite businessmen. By the late 1980s, the car saw international introduction to some countries like Singapore and Hongkong with very limited sales. And lately in US, The Nissan President is re badged for sale the Infiniti Q45.
Many of the later Nissan President models (1990 onwards) were based on the Nissan Cedric chassis, but were distinctly different. There were 4 trim levels:
3. Sovereign (long wheelbase version),
4. Royal Limousine (split passenger compartment version).
During Nissan's re-structing in 1999, production was temporarily halted. Due to Nissan's cost cutting in 2003, the President was replaced by a rebadged Nissan Cima. The Nissan President is re-badged for sale in the USA as the Infiniti Q45. But I think there are not same looking, Nissan President is much much better (it is my opinion), you can check out the pictures of Nissan President i put in this page, Beautiful and Elegant isn't it?

History of Nissan President
As a luxury car from Japan, Nissan president is have long history
PRESIDENT 150 AND 250
The first generation of the Nissan President, designated 150, debuted in 1965, replacing the Cedric Special as Nissan's top-of-the-range model. Available with either the 4.0 litre Y40 V8 engine, developed specially for that model, or a 3.0 litre H30 straight-6, this model served as the official car of the Japanese Prime Minister Eisaku Sato.
The Nissan President 150 was replaced by a new 250 generation in 1973. The V8 engine had its displacement increased to 4.4 litre and was now designated Y44E, and a 3.0 litre version was still available. The 250 underwent a major redesign in 1982 and continued in production until 1990.
In October 1989 a new Nissan President, designated JG50, debuted during the Tokyo Motor Show, with sales beginning a year later. Concurrently, a short-wheelbase version debuted in the USA as Infiniti Q45, with a different front end. Both shared the new 4.5 litre VH45DE V8 engine. In 1993, a short-wheelbase version similar to the Infiniti joined the lineup, badged as President JS (the short-wheelbase chassis bore the PG50 designation). At the same time, Nissan's special vehicles subsidiary Autech developed a Royal Limousine model with split passenger compartment.
An interesting feature also debuted in 1993 — an airbag for the left-hand side (curbside) rear seat passenger. In 1994, along with a minor facelift, Nissan revived the Sovereign trim level (previously available for 250 Presidents) for the long-wheelbase model. Another minor facelift occurred in 1998. At the same time, the previous Infiniti Q45 was replaced by a model based on a smaller (yet still large) Nissan Cima, which was also fitted with the rear passenger airbag option in Japan.
The JG50 President continued until 2002, and it was replaced in 2003 by a new PGF50 model, based on the F50 Nissan Cima, which debuted in 2001, being also powered by the same 4.5 litre VK45DE V8 engine. Two versions are available, both badged Sovereign, with either 5-passenger or 4-passenger seating configuration.
The 4-passenger version is considerably more expensive and features lavish equipment, including a BOSE sound system and a host of other electronic devices controlled from a panel in the rear central armrest, as well as a "relaxing seat" — a feature allowing the left front passenger seat to be slid far forward, allowing the passenger in the rear to stretch his or her legs. To compete with other luxury marques in Japan, the Nissan President incorporated trim made outside Japan (such as using Conolly leather). Nissan President is my prince from Japan

Infiniti Q45 VS Nissan President
What is the main difference between Infiniti Q45 and Nissan President?
The Nissan President is the higher end Japanese Version of the Infiniti Q45. The biggest difference between the Q45 and Nissan President is the front end and rear end. The Nissan President has a gorgeous large chrome grill and sexy smooth tail lights. It also has a bunch of gizmo's on the inside. The engine, the VQ45DE, is pretty much identical however it's RHD (Right hand drive). I do like Nissan President rather than Infiniti Q45. it's a really nice looking car with gobs of power and a luxury appeal. Like i said before, It is "Prince from Japan"
