Nissan will offer a Nismo GT-R

Hopped up GT-R coming!

There have been some big goings-on for Nissan and its Nismo performance segment. Nismo has opened its own plant for constructing automobiles. Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn even said that the company would be offering a Nismo version of the GT-R.

The GT-R is already a highly competent car and Nissan previously announced a Track version of the vehicle. A Nismo version would presumably be even higher performing than the Track version. I'm really surprised that Nissan has waited so long to offer a Nismo GT-R, the company already has Nismo versions of everything from the Juke to the Z car.

The car you see in the picture above is actually the Nissan GT-R GT3 spec racecar the costs over $400,000. The car isn't street legal and you'll need a racing license to drive the car.

Cadillac to move select offices from Detroit to Manhattan?

Aug 22 2014 4:53pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Cadillac Under Johan de Nysschen, Infiniti moved its headquarters from Yokohama, Japan, to Hong Kong. Now at Cadillac, it appears the company's new president could be planning a relocation of at least some of the brand's operations from Detroit to Manhattan, according to a new report from Reuters. In the case of Infiniti, de Nysschen pushed for the move because moving away from the brand's Nissan overlords would allow it a bit more freedom. It's evidently a ...

2014 Nissan Titan Pro-4X 4x4 Test Drive

Aug 22 2014 1:34pm CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

I can think of no better place to put the 2014 Nissan Titan Pro-4X to the test than something called the Texas Canyon Truck Trail deep in the Angeles National Forest. The Titan had already taxied to and from daycare for a week and dressed up for highway cruises to attend a wedding and I think we had both had enough of the charade. It was time to see how the Titan Pro-4X – the most off-road capable version available – perform ...

Infiniti looking to trademark ‘Eau Rouge’ in the U.S.

Aug 22 2014 10:50am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

In what is arguably the biggest tease in Infiniti’s recent history, the automaker has reportedly begun the process to trademark the ‘Eau Rouge’ nameplate in the U.S. As if the functional, driveable concept wasn’t enough evidence, this means the Q50 Eau Rouge is another step closer to production, despite the fact the automaker has stopped short of an official confirmation. According to Automotive News, the tra ...

Watch Sebastian Vettel Tackle the Eau Rouge Corner with Infiniti’s Eau Rouge Concept

Aug 21 2014 3:59pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Pretty much everything about Infiniti’s fully functional Q50 Eau Rouge concept car is worthy of exclamation points. It looks amazing! It has the Nissan GT-R’s twin-turbocharged V-6! Infiniti is probably going to build it! Yet for all the superlatives, the “Eau Rouge” appellation might remain a mystery to some. To clear the air—possibly in advance of a green light for production—Infiniti has released a video to help explain the significance of the m ...
