Mashup your favorite NISMO models! お気に入りのニスモマシンを混ぜましょう?!

A Nissan Leaf three-door hatchback with a GT-R front!!! It is something that we usually find on the weird corners of the internet or the motor show floors of the Tokyo Auto Salon. But this photo actually comes from NISMO USA’s facebook page.

It is a fun promotion called “Mashup 1”. NISMO is asking readers to submit their weirdest ideas as comments. Head over to Facebook page and submit your comments!


日産リーフにGT-Rのフロント!!!当然、新型車なわけはなくネットに出回るコラージュ写真だったり、東京オートサロンで見かける意欲作です。ただコレ・・・、NISMO USAがFacebookページで公開しているものなんです。


R35 has no soul? R35には走りに魂が感じられない、そうです・・・

Nissan GT-R is a bargain. With a sub-3-second 0-100km/h time, enormous grip, and a host of performance-enhancing technologies, the GT-R is, undoubtedly, amongst the best. But the GT-R has been knocked for being too efficient and precise in how it delivers its substantial performance, for lacking the “soul” of some of its European rivals.

The host of Motor Trend’s “world’s fastest car show’ Justin Bell takes Nissan’s supercar to the track, to see if it lives up to both its mythical and clinical reputations.

As for the torque distribution, Nissan set it so that anyone can drive fast through coners. It is unfortunate that none of the motor journalists fail to point that out… What the hell is “soul” anyway? Does the car have to be edgy at times to be called “soulful”?

Will the next generation GT-R be soulful or do Japanese not have the ability to make cars with souls?


モータートレンド誌が展開している「World’s fastest car show」というビデオで2014年モデルのR35を取り上げています。ル・マン優勝者でもある元レーシングドライバー、ジャスティン・ベルが試乗しているんですが、絶対性能は認めつつも、サーキットではイマイチ「魂を感じられない」と難しいことを申されております(笑)。




G63AMG Hennessey HPE700 VS R35…G63AMGへネシーHPE700対R35

What happens when you drag race a stock Nissan GTR against 2013 AMG G63 G-Wagon upgraded with the Hennessey HPE700 upgrade? Hint: Always put the GTR in R mode or the race could be quite different….


New world record for GT-R… 0-300km/h加速11.56秒!

It’s quite ironic to think that when Nissan introduced GT-R, they did everything they could to prevent people from tuning it. They wanted to make GT-R different, give it more luxurious positioning, from that of Skyline GT-R. However, as time has proven, the Nissan GT-R has become one of the world’s most popular supercars to modify.

During a recent run at an MLR event, the 1400hp Nissan GT-R modified by Severn Valley Motorsport managed to hit an incredible 380.84km/h in just one mile… Consequently, the car completed the standing mile in just 22.42.

It’s worth mentioning that a 1700hp Nissan GT-R, AMS Alpha12, in Russia recently completed the standing mile at a top speed of 382km/h. However, to Severn Valley Motorsport’s credit, their GT-R did reach 300km/h in a mere 11.56 seconds making it almost 1 second faster to that mark than the aforementioned 1700hp GT-R!


つい先日、ロシアのドラッグレースでAMS Alpha12が世界最速記録を樹立したばかりですが・・・
