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.

When the 2015 Ford Edge goes on sale in spring 2015, it will start around the same price as the 2014 ($28,995) but swap the available engines.

French Hypermiling: Ultralight Renault EOLAB Pegged at 235 MPG

Sep 22 2014 9:55am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The recently revealed Renault EOLAB concept is providing a glimpse of our ultralight, aerodynamic future with its seemingly hyperbolic fuel-efficiency rating: 100km/liter (translating to 235 mpg on the Euro cycle). It may also be previewing the unbearable lightness of mpg’ing. With its generous use of magnesium, aluminum, and specialty plastics and polymers, the EOLAB enjoys an 880-pound weight savings over the current Clio IV. And with a 0.235 drag ...

New Nissan Pulsar Compact Hatch Rivals VW Golf, But No U.S. Sales Planned

Sep 22 2014 6:30am CDT | Source: All Small Cars

Now, Nissan is using the Pulsar name for a car that's a little less unconventional. The new Nissan Pulsar is a compact hatchback intended to steal sales from the Volkswagen Golf--but as of ...

Video: Top Gear Drives The Nissan Zeod RC

Sep 22 2014 5:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

By most accounts, the Nissan Zeod RC is one of the oddest-looking race cars we’ve seen. If anything, it looks like the kind of car that belongs at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah than it does in Le Mans. Yet there it was, racing around the famous race track on its way to setting the electric speed record at Le Mans. A car with such a unique background is deserved of the attention it gets, so much so that Top Gear actually brought the car to its own track to run a few laps around it.No, Jer ...
