2014 Nissan GT-R NISMO Development Story
REVEALED: NISSAN GT-R NISMO
-World premiere of race-inspired version of Nissan's legendary GT-R
-600hp (441kw) for blistering performance
-Advanced aerodynamics generating additional 100kg of downforce at 300km/h
(186mph) for exceptional road-holding
YOKOHAMA, Japan (November 19, 2013) - Records fall and dreams come true
with the debut of the Nissan GT-R Nismo. This race-oriented model delivers
"factory tuned" supercar dynamics with revolutionary enhanced aerodynamics
and ultra-precise handling. The Nissan GT-R is already established as one
of the best performing supercars in the automotive sphere, and now Nissan
has drawn on decades of racing experience gathered by Nismo, the brand's
motorsport specialists, to develop the ultimate Nissan GT-R.
The Nissan GT-R Nismo features exclusive styling that embraces the
longstanding racing philosophy of form following function. It has numerous
motorsports-inspired technologies to enhance the car's performance through
optimised aerodynamics, suspension and powertrain, creating a well-balanced
machine that is at home on both the road and track.
The Nissan GT-R Nismo will be available in Japan in late February 2014,
U.S. and Europe later in 2014.
Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn says this is the fastest Nissan GT-R ever. "With a
7:08.679 lap time, we can authoritatively say that the Nissan GT-R Nismo*
holds the volume production car lap record at the Nürburgring
Nordschliefe, which is the gold standard of high performance achievement."
Nissan GT-R Nismo Overview - Flagship of the Nismo lineup
1. Mechanical Features
Nissan GT-R Nismo employs innovation, uncompromising engineering and
motorsports-inspired technologies to achieve new levels of power, speed and
-Under the hood, the 3.8-litre V6 VR38DETT engine benefits from the
know-how that Nismo has gained from participating in such events as the
world-renowned Nürburgring 24 hour race. Engine power has risen and is now
rated at 600hp (441kw) and 481 lb ft (652 Nm) of torque.
-New high-flow, large diameter turbochargers, which are used for GT3 racing,
improve breathing, while optimised individual ignition timing control for
each cylinder and upgraded fuel pump improve combustion.
-The suspension setup,is inspired by that of the Nismo racing GT-R and
tuned for stunning agility, road-holding and handling finesse, without
-The springs and custom-developed Bilstein DampTronic dampers in the front
and rear suspension are specially tuned to deliver exceptional grip levels
and progressive handling response at the limit. Three suspension modes can
be selected: Comfort, Normal and R, for circuit applications.
-Exclusive Nismo tyres - developed by Dunlop - exhibit outstanding grip and
handling characteristics. Front: 255/40 ZRF20; rear 285/35 ZRF20.
-Specially-developed links fitted to the front double wishbone suspension
increase castor trail to optimise wheel position during high-G cornering
and improve straight-line and cornering stability. Additionally, large
high-rigidity bolts are used to increase stiffness of the wheel-hub
-To minimize body-roll during cornering and changes of direction, the
Nissan GT-R Nismo features a 17.3 mm hollow rear anti-roll bar which raises
roll stiffness while reducing weight.
-Increased rigidity in the bodyshell is achieved using adhesive bonding in
addition to spot welding leading to precise suspension response under
extreme load, the Nismo "factory tuned" enhancement.
2. Exterior design - Exclusive styling with improved aerodynamics
-Using the latest Computational Fluid Dynamic simulation techniques to
analyse airflow, Nismo has developed an aero package that improves
road-holding, minimises the negative impact of drag, while giving the car a
menacing and muscular appearance.
-Together, the front bumper, engine undercover strake and carbon rear
spoiler increase downforce, lowering the centre of gravity and generating
an additional 100kg (at 300km/h) compared to the freshly updated 2014 GT-R
model. The car's aerodynamic characteristics are tuned to ensure the
downforce is equally spread front to rear at all speeds for progressive
handling characteristics. A widened front bumper configuration and
elongated yet tapered rear bumper design keep the drag to Cd 0.26, the same
as that of 2014 Nissan GT-R.
-The Nissan GT-R Nismo will be available in five body colors: Brilliant
White Pearl, Meteor Flake Pearl Black, Ultimate Metallic Silver and Vibrant
Red. And unique to the GT-R Nismo model, a Dark Matte Grey accentuates the
car's imposing exterior muscularity.
-The GT-R Nismo's black 6-spoke wheels are inspired by Nissan's legendary
GT500 race car.

2011 Nissan Juke First Look from Consumer Reports
The funky Nissan Juke is part subcompact, part SUV, and part sports car.
It's fun to drive with more practicality than most sports cars. But don't
expect as much interior space as you'd find in a typical small SUV. Visit
our website to find out more about the Nissan Juke and other new cars:
Consumer Reports' 2013 Top Picks Report
Consumer Reports' 2013 Top Picks By Category:
MIDSIZED SEDAN: Honda Accord ($23,270 to $30,860). Honda nailed it with
this redesign -- it's roomy, nice to drive, well equipped and very fuel
efficient. With its four-cylinder engine, the Accord squeezes out 30 mpg
overall and 40 on the highway, which is as good as the tiny Honda Fit.
Higher-trim models have advanced safety features seldom found in this
category; all models come with a standard back-up camera.
SPORTS CARS: Scion FR-S ($25,025) and Subaru BRZ ($27,117). Co-developed by
Subaru and Toyota, which markets the Scion brand, both are exhilarating to
drive, with super-sharp handling, excellent braking, and ample
acceleration. While they are dedicated rear-wheel-drive sports cars with
jittery rides, noisy cabins and small rear seats, their impressive gas
mileage and reasonable sticker prices are welcome nods towards
BUDGET CAR: Hyundai Elantra ($18,445). One of CR's top-rated compact
sedans, the well- rounded Elantra delivers a lot for the money. It's
roomier and more refined than a typical subcompact yet gets competitive
fuel economy. The Elantra also provides nimble handling, a fairly
comfortable ride, a smooth, responsive powertrain, and a well-finished
interior at an affordable price.
GREEN CAR: Toyota Prius ($26,750). Today's pure electric cars are getting
the equivalent of 100 or more mpg. But no current plug-in car can match the
Prius hatchback for its blend of fuel efficiency, practicality, and
affordability. Its 44 overall mpg is still the best CR has measured in any
five- passenger, non-plug-in-vehicle. The Prius' roomy interior,
comfortable ride, hatchback versatility and low running costs make it easy
to live with.
COMPACT CAR: Subaru Impreza (Sedan, $21,345; hatchback $22,345). The 2012
redesign breathed new life into the all-wheel-drive Impreza. Both sedan and
hatchback versions are good sensible cars, with nimble handling and a
compliant, absorbent ride that rivals some luxury sedans. Fuel economy is
impressive for an AWD car. And the roomy interior, spacious rear seat,
simple controls, and refreshingly good visibility make it easy to live
LUXURY CAR: Audi A6 ($56,295). Redesigned for 2012, the A6 is agile, quick,
and a joy to drive, surrounding drivers and passengers with a sumptuous,
impeccably finished cabin that's brimming with the latest high-tech
features. The A6's potent, supercharged V6 engine, super-smooth eight-speed
automatic transmission, and comfortable ride add to the business-class
feel. It returns respectable gas mileage, even with all-wheel drive.
MIDSIZED SUV: Toyota Highlander ($38,578 to $47,255). For those who want
the practicality of an SUV with the refinement of a good sedan, it provides
a quiet, well-finished cabin, as
well as a cushy ride, secure handling, and a smooth powertrain. The
Highlander has also consistently maintained above-average reliability.
MINIVAN: Honda Odyssey ($36,830). With improved reliability helping it earn
the top spot among family haulers, it provides a comfortable ride and a
roomy, quiet, and versatile cabin. The V6 engine performs well and delivers
a competitive 19 mpg. And a backup camera -- a great safety feature -- is
now standard on all models.
SMALL SUV: Honda CR-V ($26,455). Virtues include a smooth, responsive
powertrain, good fuel economy, a compliant ride, excellent braking, a roomy
rear seat, very functional interior, standard backup camera, and
outstanding reliability. It's also one of the more competitively priced
choices in the class.
SPORTS SEDAN: BMW 328i ($43,195). With its recent redesign, the 328i has
become roomier, more luxurious and more fuel efficient while retaining most
of its sporty, fun-to-drive characters. Ride comfort and fit and finish are
impressive. And its 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivers quick
acceleration, while posting the best gas mileage in its class.

2014 Nissan Juke NISMO (200hp) - DRIVE & SOUND (1080p FULL HD)
The full Country Road and Autobahn Drive with the 2013/2014 Nissan Juke
Nismo with its 1.6 turbo (200hp; 250Nm)
FWD and 6-speed manual transmission. You can argue about the styling of the
regular Juke but I think this NISMO model doesn't look to bad. Everything
else, as engine, suspension and steering is very good, so the engineers at
Nissan knew what to do to give this car a sporty feel. Two things to
describe how this car feels are "lightness" and "pulltrhough". Since this
FWD version only weighs 1.300 kg and gear ratio is short you can really
irritate some much more potent cars on the Autobahn. In everything to 160
km/h this car is really quick, almost Mini-like. The interior quality is a
improvement to the "standard" Juke as well, since many parts are wrapped in
alcantara, which does feel good. I am looking forward to hear your COMMENTS
