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.

Next-Gen Nissan Titan Destined for Detroit, We Detail Its Clever New Diesel Engine

Oct 28 2014 12:28pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Almost 12 years ago, Nissan showed up at Detroit’s hometown auto show with a direct challenge to the Big Three: its first full-size truck, the Titan. Even if that truck barely registers as competition today—though it does have a pretty bitchin’ name—Nissan hasn’t been deterred from repeating the stunt with the second-generation truck. The 2016 Titan will make its debut at the 2015 Detroit auto show, according to a Nissan spokesman. We already know that an optional turbo-diesel engine will mak ...
