2018 SEMA Show: Nissan to display five one-off vehicles including a 370Z Project Clubsport 23

The 2018 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas is about to start and Nissan won't itself be outdone by other carmakers. In fact, Nissan will be gracing the 2018 SEMA Show with five one-off vehicles, including a 400-hp Nissan Motorsports Project Clubsport 23 that combines the latest technology with the Z heritage aesthetics.

Leading the charge for the Japanese carmaker is the Nissan Motorsports Project Clubsport 23 project car that combines a number of OEM, aftermarket and bespoke fabricated parts. A track-only project car, the Project Clubsport 23 makes use of performance parts that have been tested and developed in Motorsports, as sourced from most respected suppliers. As Nissan Motorsports and MA Motorsports intended, the Project Clubsport 23 is an ongoing parts development platform, which means its looks might be different months from the 2018 SEMA Show.

The Nissan Motorsports Project Clubsport 23 was based on a 2012 Nissan 370Z NISMO deprived of its original 350-hp 3.7-liter VQ37VHR engine. In its stead is a factory 400-hp 3.0-liter VR30DDTT twin-turbo V6 mill. The main challenge in the project car was how to mate a VR30DDTT engine to the 370Z NISMO's six-speed manual transmission – something that has never been done before. To achieve this MA Motorsports developed a new clutch disc, cover and flywheel assembly and installed a NISMO GT LSD Pro-Carbon two-way differential cooled by an MA Motorsports Differential Cooler.

LA Auto Show welcomes 2018 Nissan Kicks CUV

Nissan’s growing subcompact crossover lineup has a new model -- the new Kicks, a production version of the concept car initially introduced at the Sao Paolo Motor Show three years ago. Nissan brings the 2018 Kicks to 2017 LA Auto Show for its premiere, taking with it nearly the exact design cues from the concept along with the brand’s highly iconic V-motion grille.

The automaker is looking to lure the younger crowd by not only by offering the stylish CUV with colorful choices of paints but also with a starting price of less than 19,000 USD which is way more affordable compared to the Nissan Juke.

Nissan has packed the Kicks’ 1.6-liter four cylinder engine with 125hp and 115lb-ft of torque that sends power to the front wheels courtesy of Nissans Xtronic continuous variable transmission. In addition, folks trying to purchase a brand new car for the first time will find great value in the fuel efficient powertrain’s 33 mpg combined rating from the EPA.
