2013 Nissan Altima V8 Supercars Unveiled

Not your mom's Altima

As a former Nissan Altima owner I can say without a doubt that the cars are rather boring to drive. The same can't be said for the rip snorting V8 supercar version of the 2013 Altima. Nissan has unveiled two of the cars that will be racing in the V8 supercar series this year.

one of the cars is clad in a black and white Jack Daniels livery on the other one is clad in yellow and black Norton livery. Other than the general design, the cars have very little in common with the road going counterparts.

Nissan isn't offering of any details on performance for these racing cars, but you can bet they'll be incredibly fast. I can't wait to see these cars run at COTA in Austin.

When was the last time you thought about a Nissan 370Z? Sure, it came out a few years ago, but for some reason it seems like the vast majority of people would only answer with "never." It's a little, over-powered, rear-wheel drive monster, and you can get it with a folding roof. So ...

Needless to say, Munich’s vehicles are quite common with racing events, but IMSA is among the very few sanctioning bodies that prefer other marques. For this year’s Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge race at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, IMSA opted for the 2015 Nissan 370Z Nismo. The coupe, as you may remember, ...
