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.

Jul 30 2014 7:38am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

General Motors’ Chevrolet Volt passed the U.S. insurance industry’s toughest frontal crash test, while Nissan’s battery-electric Leaf couldn’t make the grade.

The Leaf was rated “poor.” This is the first time the Arlington, Virginia-based safety ...

Derrick and Eric Sharma are done with their Chevy Camaro. Self-proclaimed “car-heads,” the brothers from Brampton, Ontario, bought a Transformers-inspired, yellow and black Camaro in 2007.

24 Hours of LeMons Chicago: The Winners!

Jul 28 2014 10:36pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

For the 24 Hours of LeMons’ fifth visit to the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, Illinois, we started things off with inspections of some strange-O engine-swapped machinery on Friday, then ran one long race session that started on Saturday morning and finished at midnight. With the lack of a break between sessions, mechanical problems tended to knock cars out of contention for class leads but heightened a near-panic-stricken sense of urgenc ...
