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.

Is The Reanultsport R.S. 01 An Audi R8 Copy Or A Victim Of Design?

Aug 30 2014 10:34am CDT | Source: Jalopnik

The concept of the Renaultsport RS 0.1 is a strong one: Stuff a Nissan GT-R V6 into the back of a race car. Given Nissan's Le Mans plans it makes perfect sense to let their French cousins have a stab at it. Yet, all ...

Oh Thank Hydraulic! Infiniti Q50S to Get G37-Derived Steering System for 2016

Aug 29 2014 12:58pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

If you, like us, have been disappointed in Infiniti’s aloof Q50 sedan as the ostensible replacement for the sporty G37—which, incidentally, Infiniti still sells as the “Q40″ for 2015—we have good news. The Q50S model is set to get considerably more sporty for 2016, thanks to a retro upgrade headed where the car needs it most: The steering rack.  You see, the Q50′s base steering setup is an electrically assisted unit. Although some manufacturers have coaxed decent fee ...

Watch this 800-hp Nissan Juke-R savage the 'Ring

Aug 29 2014 11:54am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Aftermarket, Performance, Europe, Videos, Crossover, Supercars, Nissan The concept of the 545-horsepower Nissan Juke-R that stuffs the drivetrain of a GT-R into a subcompact crossover is already insane, but Russian company Shpilli Villi Engineering has taken things even further with their own crazy riff on the idea. Its version tunes the engine up to a claimed 800 horsepower, plus a shot of nitrous for an extra 200 hp to put it (way) over the top. Naturally, a num ...

Begun the SLOG Wars Have: Uber Announces New Driver-Recruitment Initiative, Lyft Displeased

Aug 29 2014 9:59am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

If there were any doubt remaining that Uber is a flash-in-the-pan cash-grab startup rather than a serious player in the transportation sector, one need only scope the name of the company’s new initiative: SLOG. An acronym for “Supplying Long-term Operations Growth,” SLOG suggests that the company very much sees itself in the ride-sharing game for the foreseeable future. The San Francisco–based dispatch/logistics company ...

2015 Toyota Tundra TRD PRO Test Drive

Aug 29 2014 8:07am CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

A couple of years ago, a lot of folks would be telling you that vehicles like the Toyota Tundra TRD PRO were going the way of the dinosaur. Gas was expensive, electric and hybrid vehicles were all the rage, and really, who needs such a big truck? Apparently, a lot of folks. The full size pickup truck market is red hot. The big three continue to duke it out for outrageous claiming rights, and imports like the Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan show that imports can mix it up just fine. And i ...

2014 Nissan Rogue SL AWD Long-Term Update 1

Aug 28 2014 10:08am CDT | Source: Truck Trend

Getting out of the 2014 Nissan Rogue and into cars with either traditional autos or even DSGs made me aware of how much Nissan is giving up with the CVT.The concept of the continuously variable transmission isn’t new. How not new? Well, its history traces back to a guy named Leonardo da Vinci and a drawing done right around 1490. While I am normally a huge fan of da Vinci’s work, they all can’t be winners. In fairness, he did inven ...
