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 ...

Nissan 370Z Roadster (2009): full official photos

Rated 3 out of 53

Tim Pollard, 07 April 2009 22:01

Nissan has released its full official photos of the new 370Z Roadster in New York ahead of its debut at the 2009 auto show. As expected, it's a straightforward decapitation of the thrill-seeking 370Z Coupe, with a good, old-fashioned canvas soft-top in keeping with the Zed's no-nonsense character.There's structural reinforcement in the A-pillars and side sills to counter the lack ...

Nissan Qazana: how the production car will look

Rated 2 out of 52

Ben Pulman, 18 March 2009 12:45

Nissan’s Qazana might seem like an out-there concept, but Nissan Design Europe’s vice president Alfonso Albaisa has told CAR Online that it'll keep many of the show car's cues when it goes into production at the company's Sunderland plant in the summer of 2010. For the full story of the new Qazana, check out the new issue of CAR Magazine ...

Nissan Qazana unveiled at Geneva motor show 2009

Rated 2 out of 52

Ben Pulman, 03 March 2009 12:39

This funky little concept car is Nissan’s new Qazana, a preview of an all-new sub-Qashqai crossover that’ll be built at the company’s Sunderland plant in 2010. Nissan Qazana, eh? So how much of it is real? All of the concept’s real, from its suicide rear doors through to its 20-inch wheels, but don’t expect much of this to translate onto ...

Video: swimsuit models sideways in 370Zs

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

Ben Barry, 27 February 2009 16:40

Here's a little fun for you on a Friday. What do you get if you mix three swimsuit models, three Nissan 370Zs and six smoking tyres? This highly bizarre video, as it turns out. Shot to promote the annual swimsuit-fest in Sports Illustrated magazine, it features said ladies being driven very sideways by a trio of 370Zs in a sequence ...
