Nissan Sentra Nismo Concept Puts 240hp Under the Hood

Nissan hasn't said the car will enter production yet, but we are hoping

Nissan has been unveiling some cool new cars that will fit into its Nismo line this week at the LA Auto show. Among the cars is a very nice looking Sentra Nismo concept car. The concept has a 240 hp 1.8L direct injection turbo engine. That engine produces 240 lb-ft of torque.

"Fans have asked that we bring back a high-performance Sentra straight from the factory, just like in generations past," said Nissan Vice President of Product Planning, Pierre Loing. "With NISMO, our in-house motorsports arm already producing versions of the 370Z NISMO, JUKE NISMO, JUKE NISMO RS and upcoming GT-R NISMO, we wanted to demonstrate where we could go in the future."

Nissan hasn’t said that the Nismo Sentra is going to come to production. Considering that the Nissan line will have a pair of Nismo Jukes, it would make sense for the Nismo Sentra to be offered. Here's hoping that Nissan puts this attractive four-door sedan into production.

2014 Nissan Rogue SL AWD Long-Term Update 1

Aug 28 2014 10:08am CDT | Source: Truck Trend

Getting out of the 2014 Nissan Rogue and into cars with either traditional autos or even DSGs made me aware of how much Nissan is giving up with the CVT.The concept of the continuously variable transmission isn’t new. How not new? Well, its history traces back to a guy named Leonardo da Vinci and a drawing done right around 1490. While I am normally a huge fan of da Vinci’s work, they all can’t be winners. In fairness, he did invent the thing roughly 400 years before the ...

Nissan Juke-R (WITH NAWSSS) Laps The Nürburgring Like A Beast: Video

Aug 28 2014 9:47am CDT | Source: Motor Authority

The Nissan Juke-R is already an insanely upgraded version of the Juke crossover—or, taken another way, an insanely re-bodied version of the Nissan GT-R. So when you add nitrous oxide to the mix, make the all-wheel drive switchable to rear-wheel drive, and then throw it onto the Nürburgring Nordschleife, wha ...

Kaz: Pushing The Virtual Divide Gran Turismo documentary now free on YouTube

Aug 27 2014 7:06pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Videos, Toys/Games, Celebrities The video game Gran Turismo arguably wasn't the first great driving simulator, but it came along at just the right time to do things no other console game had ever done so well before. First, the Sony PlayStation allowed for 3D graphics that could create a recognizable model of a car in 360 degrees. Also, GT offered a huge breadth of vehicles that could get almost anyone interested. Up to that point in time, most driving ...

10 Green Cars that Don’t Suck: Eco-Excellence at All Price Points

Aug 27 2014 5:19pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Mix pious intentions with dreary mechanical bits and then stir in some driving misery, and the result is a “green car.” Green not in the color of its paint, but in the environmental virtue of its engineering and marketing. Green as in economical with fuel but stingy on fun, great with emissions but lousy to pilot. Green cars are hybrids, diesels, and electric cars stripped to the point of making a rotted ...

Renault unveils bonkers, Alpine-inspired R.S. 01 racecar

Aug 27 2014 11:17am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Although we probably won’t see it in North America soon, if ever, Renault’s new R.S. 01 racer is worth dreaming about. The French automaker calls the R.S. 01 a “radical expression of the brand’s sporting DNA” and “governed by an absolute pursuit of aerodynamic downforce.” That would be putting it mildly considering the R.S. 01 is absolutely breathtaking. Developed by Renaultsport and no doubt inspired by the Alpine concept, Renault’s motorsport division, the R.S. 01 ...
