When DJI Phantom 4 Drone meets rescue vehicle, you get the futuristic Nissan Navara EnGuard Concept. Unlike the standard Navara, this concept features a prototype portable battery pack comprised of seven 2kW EV modules inside a weather-proof machined aluminum housing. When docked in place, these are in constant 'charge' mode, harvesting power generated by its 187-horsepower, twin-turbo 2.3L, essentially making it an alternative to a petrol generator. The drone has an operating ceiling of 19,685-feet and has the ability to fly at speeds up to 20m per second, for close to 30 minutes, while sending live footage back to the car's pop-up display hidden in the load bed wall.

Kuhl Racing spent over 6-months creating this GT-R, starting with a fiberglass bodykit, which was then intricately hand engraved. Once that was completed, the car was given an 18K gold finish. Unfortunately, it'll set you back over $1-million if you decide to purchase this luxurious one-off beast. Continue reading for another video, more pictures and additional information.

Nissan's all-new 2017 GT-R has a top speed of 196mph and can go from 0-60mph in 2.9-seconds, and to put it to the test, the company built a drone capable of hitting 115mph. Now it may not have the range, but it out-accelerates the car to 62mph, managing to hit it in 1.3-seconds. This was made possible with a special custom design optimized to keep drag to a minimum. It's an FPV-type drone, flown in the same way as competition drones, which means the pilot has a headset that relays a drone-eye-view to him, enabling pinpoint precision.

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.
