Nagisa Auto (ナギサオート) is a privately owned tuning shop based in Osaka, Japan that also fabricates a wide variety of performance parts that they brand and retail under the same name.

Originating in Osaka during the 1980s, Nagisa Auto's early days consisted of performing regular maintenance and tuning to help fund their small racing team, which competed at local race events and circuits. During Japan's fast growing performance car culture of the 1990s, Nagisa Auto became more competitive in their motorsports aspirations, and began to fabricate parts such as multi-link suspension components, and chassis reinforcement parts which could help their race car's performance in the era of the Japanese super car.

Nagisa Auto's race cars include:

  • Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII (CT9A)
  • Nissan Siliva (S15)
  • Nissan R34 Skyline GTR (R34) - Current record holder, Central Circuit Super Lap

Nagisa Auto provided their Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII for the development and prototype testing of Tanabe Racing Development's new Sustec Pro Seven suspension, and the TEAS electronic active suspension controller.
