Japan’s nutter gene: tuning, drifting and speeding

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

Ben Barry, 18 August 2009 10:15

Ten years ago I got my first job on a motoring title: Max Power. Max had become the biggest car magazine in the UK after stumbling on a surprising formula: young guys like fast, lairy cars and fast, lairy women. At the millennium, Japanese cars and Max Power went hand-in-hand, and the period – flinchingly embarrassing as it can sometimes ...

Nissan 370Z to Spa on a fan's pilgrimage

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

Giles Meyrick (aka nissansportz), 04 August 2009 15:10

NB The photos are high-res and will take some time to renderWhat is a design icon? What gives a car company its soul? Questions that obviously Carlos Ghosn thought long and hard about when he took over the helm at Nissan at the end of the last millennium. One of the first things that he did was to sanction the ...

Nissan Leaf – first photos of Nissan’s electric car

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

Tim Pollard, 03 August 2009 09:00

Nissan this weekend unveiled the Leaf – its new battery-powered electric car. The Nissan Leaf is pitched as ‘the world’s first affordable, zero-emission car’, a bespoke EV for global sale. The range of the Nissan Leaf is more than 100 miles – enough for 70% of people’s driving requirements, says Nissan, and it can seat five adults. It’ll be launched ...

Nissan EV (2010) teaser shot released

Rated 4.5 out of 54.5

Alex Michaelides, 28 July 2009 11:07

Nissan has let slip this teaser shot of its new, unnamed electric vehicle. The image reveals little about the EV, but we expect the five-seat battery-powered car to have Ford Focus-like dimensions, thanks to its compact motor. We can also decipher that the badge hides a charging socket at the front – a neat solution that’ll make the EV easy ...

Lapping the Nurburgring at 100mph in the fog

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

Ben Barry, 20 May 2009 14:41

A little background to CAR Magazine's new cover story. We’d got the new GT3, sorted the Nissan GT-R, booked an exclusive session at the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife circuit. Yet there was one major component missing from our test: a driver. This posed a fairly major problem, as simply having a good driver wasn’t enough. We needed somebody who knew intimately every ...

A week in the life of a Nissan GT-R

Rated 3 out of 53

Ben Barry, 20 May 2009 14:35

I’ve been lucky enough to follow the GT-R story pretty closely over the past two years. I got an early passenger ride in summer 2007 at Nissan’s highly secretive test circuit in Hokkaido, Japan; conducted the first independently timed laps in the UK with a private import (I drove the GT-R around Rockingham one second faster than the 911 Turbo. ...

Nissan GT-R Spec V (2009) CAR review

Rated 3 out of 53

Ben Barry, 19 May 2009 17:00

This is the ultimate GT-R. While Porsche has RS, Lamborghini has SV and BMW has M, Nissan’s best GT-Rs (or Skylines) have come with a V-Spec designation. Now reversed, the Spec V is Nissan’s newest GT-R, with carbon brakes, a stripped-out interior and a bank balance-breaking 15,750,000 yen, that's over £100k. So what turns a ‘regular’ Nissan GT-R into a ...

Nissan GT-R sets new Nurburgring lap record

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

Tim Pollard, 14 May 2009 15:45

Nissan today revealed it had smashed its own internal lap record of the Nurburgring in the new R35 GT-R. For some this is manna from anorak heaven; of course, others will dismiss it as yet more hype about a rare-groove racetrack with little relevance to the man on the street. Whatever your view, it’s still pretty impressive. The new Nissan ...

Nissan 200SX/Silvia details scooped (2009)

Rated 3 out of 53

Ben Barry, 21 April 2009 11:00

Nissan insiders have revealed to CAR more details of the next-generation 200SX/Silvia that was cancelled in 2008. If you don’t want to know what we’re missing, look away now. I didn’t even know that a new Nissan 200SX was on the cards… It was. Nissan showed the Foria concept (the light blue car) at the 2005 Tokyo auto salon, and the pared-back ...
