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.

Car Review: 2015 Infiniti Q70

Sep 2 2014 7:43am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

FORESTBURGH, NEW YORK — Dissecting the evolving nomenclature of the new Infiniti flagship sedan lineup, one can’t help but be reminded of the single letter characters of a James Bond movie. Only, in Infiniti’s case, M has become Q. In fact, as of last year, all Infiniti vehicles, from sporty coupes through to hulking SUVs, have become Q. Even the ones that weren’t M. Confused? You’re not alone. Such is the peril of an automaker renaming long-established and in some cases lo ...
