2018 Infiniti Project Black S Is A Hybrid, Has 560 HP And 4-Second Car

You know how automakers often say their involvement in motorsports like Formula 1 helps in advancing the tech on road-going cars? Well, the 2018 Infiniti Project Black S Prototype you see here is one example of that. The Infiniti Project Black S Prototype is a follow up to Nissan luxury marque’s 2017 Infiniti Project Black S design study and it is a platform that showcases how the dual-hybrid electric powertrain technology found on Formula 1 race car can be applied to a road car – drawing on the expertise from across the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance.

Nissan And Italdesign Created A Celebratory Nissan GT-R Called GT-R50

2019 marks the 50 years of Nissan GT-R (formerly under the moniker Skyline). To mark the golden jubilee of this world-renowned sports car, Nissan has joined hands with another half a century old company, Italdesign, to create a custom-bodied GT-R which it calls Nissan GT-50 by Italdesign. With the Italdesign in the mix, you expect nothing less than a spectacular ride and it certainly is! The GT-R50 is a dual celebratory ride; it marks the 50th anniversaries of both the GT-R, in 2019, and Italdesign which celebrates its semi-centennial this year.

Nissan Armada “Mountain Patrol” Looks Better Than It Was On Visuals

The overland SUV Nissan Truck asked fans help to “design” is finally ready. Nissan officially took the wrap off the final vehicle on Wednesday at Flagstaff, Arizona, U.S.A. ahead of its grand debut at the Overland Expo WEST this weekend. If you haven’t already heard, this SUV is unique in that some of its modifications and equipment specs are opinions from fans gathered through a poll carried out on @NissanUSATrucks Instagram and Facebook page.

Here’s A Prove That Loud Cars Always Get Unwanted Attentions

Here’s a video of a Nissan GT-R that purportedly has 1850HP under the hood being pull over by a police officer. Now, there was no explanation as to why it was pulled in, then again, looking that the massive, wider-than-its-body rear wing, we can only speculate that mods were the issues – specifically, the wing. The ride is super low too and has flared fenders which looks like a wide body kit. Is this the most beautiful Nissan GT-R we have seen? Nope. Certainly not.

Nissan Wants You To Help To Design An Adventure-ready Nissan Armada

Nissan US is determined to imprint the impression of its off-road vehicle’s capability. It all started with the Nissan TITAN-based Project Basecamp, which we regrettably failed to report, and now we heard, a project Armada “Mountain Patrol” is underway. The Nissan Armada “Mountain Patrol” Project is a family adventure-ready SUV slated to debut next mouth at the 2018 Overland Expo WEST, but before that happens, Nissan USA’s Truck division wants your input to finish the vehicle. From now May 10, you can help Nissan determine the tires to be used, the exterior design by the way of vinyl wrap, and the roof-mounted tent to be incorporated.

Nissan’s ‘Smokin’ TITAN’ Is Literally A Smoking Pickup Truck

If you love a good tailgating party and BBQ, and also have a thing for pickup trucks, then I am pretty damn sure you are going to dig the Nissan ‘Smokin’ TITAN’ Pickup Truck as much as I do. Unveiled at last month at the 2018 Work Truck Show, this specially modified 2018 Nissan TITAN XD Gas King Cab features a fully-integrated in-truck-bed smoker and a mobile kitchen, complete with a self-contained sink and water system, stove and spice rack.

Nissan Replaces A 370Z’s Wheels With Skis And Tracks, Calls It 370Zki

Do you own a 370Z? Yes? But can your 370Z take on the powdered ground? Probably – if you have snow tires/snow chain on its rolling stock, but I bet it will not be as maneuverable as this 370Z here. Specially constructed for this year Chicago Motor Show, this snow-going 370Z sports a head turning geometric pattern wrap, yellow tinted headlights and shares much of the regular 370Z features, including the a 3.7L V6 motor that puts out a healthy 332 horsepower, 7-speed auto gearbox, cloth power-folding roof et cetera, but the similarity does not continue beyond the drivetrain; this snow beast here is in effect, a snowmobile – thanks to the skis and tracks it now rolls on. So, you still think your 370Z’s good for the heavily powdered mountains? Well, think again. Continue reading Nissan Replaces A 370Z’s Wheels With Skis And Tracks, Calls It 370Zki

Nissan To Sell R32 Skyline GT-R Parts Again So That The Legend Can Lives On

The R32 Skyline GT-R is arguably the most iconic sports car ever made by Japanese automaker Nissan. It has captured the hearts of millions around the world and it is, up to today, a much sought after car. It is a modern classic that begs to be driven hard, over and over again until the end of time. Incidentally, R32 was very much my first love when it comes Japanese imports and so, it does come as a pleasant surprise (not that I will ever afford to buy one here, sadly) when Nissan Japan announced that they will start making Skyline parts, specifically for R32 Skyline GT-R made between August 1989 and January 1995, as part of the new NISMO Heritage program.

Nissan Created A R/C GT-R Controlled Via A DualShock4 Controller

Keen eye readers will probably notice something peculiar about the Nissan GT-R featured here. Take a closer look and you will realize that it had opaque red windows. Weird, isn’t it? Even it has a clear as day windshield, opaque windows do not make it a safe car to drive, much less driving it at speeds on the track. Well, the thing is, this Nissan GT-R is not any ordinary GT-R; it is a fully remote control Nissan GT-R, cleverly called Nissan GT-R /C. R/C. Get it, get it? Continue reading Nissan Created A R/C GT-R Controlled Via A DualShock4 Controller
