Unlike its predecessor, the 2017 Nissan GT-R now pumps 565-horsepower from its twin-turbo 3.8L V6 engine, an increase of 20-horsepower, mated to a dual-clutch 6-speed gearbox. You also get a new Titanium exhaust system with "Active Sound Enhancement" to give it more of a bark outside, while "Active Noise Cancellation" keeps things quiet in the cabin. Speaking of the interior, the paddle shifters are now steering wheel-mounted, enabling drivers to make mid-turn gear changes without having to move their hand position.

When the roads get icy or filled with snow, tire chains are usually required to safely traverse the terrain, that is unless...you're driving the Nissan Rogue Warrior. It's fitted with the Dominator track system, which is comprised of four triangular tank tracks that each measure 30 inches in height, 48 inches in length, and 15 inches wide. Aside from the track system, it uses Nissan's standard Xtronic transmission and all-wheel drivetrain. Continue reading for two more videos and information.
Imagine a TRON Light Cycle as an ultra rugged truck, and you get the sleek Nissan Titan Warrior Concept. Not just for looks, it's powered by 5.0L V8 Cummins turbo diesel engine that generates 310-horsepower and 555 lb-ft of torque, mated to a heavy-duty 6-speed automatic gearbox. It goes anywhere, thanks to a set of 37-inch off-road tires that sit on 18-inch dark matte aluminum alloy wheels, longer prototype front axles, hydraulic bump stops, and full custom upper / lower control arms.

The Nissan R390 GT1 was a mid-engined super car built in Atsugi, Japan. It was designed primarily to gain a suitable racing entry in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1997 and 1998. It was built to race under the grand tourer style rules, requiring a homologated road version to be built. Therefore, the R390 was built originally as production road car, then a racing version of the car was developed after. Continue reading for more cool facts about the supercar.
Car drifting and abandoned malls aren't normally used in the same sentence, but that is exactly what happened when pro driver Chris Forsberg decided to take his 1,000-horsepower Nissan 370Z to the empty Hawthorne Mall in Los Angeles. When he's not drifting in zombie apocalypse-like structures, he competes in the Formula Drift series in his Nissan 370Z for NOS Energy Drink and Hankook Tires. Continue reading for three more of his drifting videos, including one where he's tazed while driving.
Sure, the Bugatti Veyron may have over 1000-horsepower, but T1 Race Development's Nissan GT-R has more than twice that. You ready that right, their "record-breaking machine," delivers a monstrous output of 2,276-horsepower at 9,332RPM and 1,335 lb-ft of torque at 7,484RPM to the wheels. All of this power is good for a 7.6-second @ 187mph quarter mile time and a standing 0-186mph in 9.6-seconds on street tires. Continue reading for two more videos and additional information.
Nissan Design Europe has just unveiled the 2020 Vision Gran Turismo in fire red, and it's powered by two electric motors, paired with a twin-turbo V6 for a combined output in excess of 800-horsepower.

This followup to the original Juke-R may look similar, but it's definitely no slouch. Powered by a 3.8L twin-turbo V6 from the GT-R NISMO that produces 600-horsepower, this family crossover has been given new life as a performance vehicle. There's plenty of carbon fiber components on the exterior, including the bumper and a set of winglets. To keep things stealthy, it was given a matte black paint job. You can see it in person at the Goodwood Festival Speed this weekend. Continue reading for a video and more information.
Similar to Nissan's DeltaWing, with its delta-shape body, the front of the BladeGlider is narrow, while the rear is wider, setting up the 1+2 seating arrangement with the driver nestled in front while passengers sit behind each of his shoulders. However, this futuristic zero-emissions vehicle will be powered by a lithium-ion battery. This vehicle is no longer a concept and will be heading to production. Continue reading for two videos and more information.
When you take a Nissan Juke, hand it over to Nismo and then install a Dominator Track System, the Juke Nismo RSnow ensues. Nissan Europe says that their engineering team didn't have to modify the AWD Xtronic CVT-equipped Juke, they just simply bolted on the tracks. However, the company also did reprogram the torque-vectoring AWD system slightly so it could adjust to the tracks. Click here to view the first image in this week's funny autocorrect texts gallery.
