Nissan set to debut three bespoke TITAN XD models, GT-R NISMO N-Attack Package at 2015 SEMA Show

Nissan will make an explosive appearance at this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas. The carmaker is set to debut a trio of 2016 Nissan TITAN XD units and the 2016 GT-R NISMO N-Attack Package for the GT-R Nismo.

The three Titan XD 2016 models include a bespoke model that was designed by Nissan in cooperation with SEMA itself. The collaboration resulted from a “measuring session” that SEMA and Nissan undertook early this year, and involved a PRO-4X model that was later on modified by SEMA.

Nissan had the truck conveyed to SEMA’s main base in Diamond Bar, California in September, and it was since customized extensively by the Association. Unlike the other two models, this bespoke model will take a place in the show’s Grand Lobby.

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.

Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign is a half-Japanese, half-Italian Godzilla prototype

This car is certainly a Nissan GT-R, judging from a number of design cues typical of the legendary Godzilla of the automotive world. However, it looks distinctly different; it is as if this GT-R was released from its limits. A product of the collaboration between Nissan and Italdesign, the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign is all set to be unveiled in metal in Europe in July 2018.

For now, GT-R fans and enthusiasts could feast on the video and images released by Nissan and Italdesign. This ultra-limited GT-R prototype commemorates the 50th anniversaries of both the Nissan GT-R and Italdesign.

The Nissan GT-R has been very successful in U.S. soil. Not only has it become more powerful and more capable, but it has also become more expensive every year that it has been in the market. But before you head out to buy a car, see if this good news for you will help you make up your mind.

Nissan has introduced the new entry-level GT-R under the name “Pure” and it costs just under $100,000.

The 2018 Nissan GT-R Pure model starts at $99,990 (or $101,685 after all the fees). It may still sound pricey, but that is already a big difference compared to the most affordable GT-R from last year. In fact, it is also considerably cheaper than the $111,685 price of last year’s Premium trim model. Incidentally, the 2018 Premium model costs a little more at $112,185.

Amid the excitement related to the solar eclipse, Nissan revealed two of its pickups, both in a special edition livery. Instead of waiting for auto shows, Nissan chose to debut its new models in the United States on this auspicious day. The Japanese manufacturer has not introduced new models. Instead, it unveiled a Midnight Edition for the following models: Titan, Titan XD, and the Frontier.

For the Midnight Edition, expect to see a blacked out version of the cars. To be more specific, the Titan model will now get a black front grille, headlight surrounds, foglight trim. And for the Titan XD, it gets additional blacked out fender louvers too. Smaller details like the mirror caps, door handles, badges and step rails also get a darker shadow like shade too. Other than that, they will now have a set of black painted 20-inch wheels to complete the midnight look. If you are not a big fan of all-black cars and would rather see some contrast, you can order the car in a different finish such as Gun Metallic gray and Pearl White.

The Midnight Edition package is not just limited to the car’s exterior. In the cabin, you will find Charcoal black accents together with black floor mats.

Nissan’s GT-R Nismo is one of the most expensive cars the Japanese automaker has made in its history, the 200 mile-per-hour supercar is not like any other Nissan car that everybody can get their hands on. However, Lego has fulfilled our dreams to own one to a certain extent, by designing a small-scale version of the Nismo supercar. The nice thing about this is that you do not have to know how to drive to own one.

It was Firas Abu-Jaber, an expert brick builder, who came up with the Lego version of the GT-R Nismo. The reason why he built this was because it is a favourite car of his, so he took time and studied the supercar, and went into proper detail - from the front fascia, wheels, the rear, and even under the hood, to start his project. What he built was so detailed that he even replicated the GT-R’s engine.

As usual, Firas made use of the red Technic gear pieces to add details like the tail lights according to The Brothers Brick website. As you open the hood, the doors, and the roof, you will find some pretty cool detailing inside like a full on interior. This brick model might be of interest to you, but you won’t be able to get this from your local Lego store as it is not an official kit.

One might say this GT-R rendering looks as if it came straight out of a post-apocalyptic Hollywood film but to those familiar with the CrossOut game, this concept will surely make it to the final round.

Drawing its inspiration from the post apocalyptic MMO action game, the design artist renders the GT-R with a completely new body work. To make way for this, the designer has fitted the body with new fenders, chunkier set of wheels, a roof mounted set of ammunitions and exposed engine. As a result, the Nissan GT-R morphed into an angry, full metal monster armed with battle gear as if ready to take on the enemies.

The Crossout game is based on the aftermath of the apocalypse where adventure-seeking souls find respite after a nerve-wracking work week. Perhaps the irony of playing this game is that it will take you to a place where there’s a different kind of commotion and at the same time, offers more freedom than anyone can have out of the real world.

You can run, but you can’t hide. No action-packed movie would be complete without a police car chasing the villain. But in reality, hot pursuits such as these have been taking place--- not just between a cop and criminal but also by those guilty of over speeding or violating certain traffic rules.

Interestingly, Nissan has reimagined a police vehicle for a certain fictional Skyline Police Department. This came in just in time for the 2017 New York Auto Show, which is happening next week.

Dubbed as “Copzilla” (with a code name Police Pursuit No.23), this Nissan GT-R packs an incredible 565hp (421kW) and 469 lb-ft (635Nm) powerful torque. It’s the same 3.8-liter biturbo V6 stock engine like any Nissan GT-R but it’s been added with coil overs and a new set of 22-inch spiked wheels. Very fitting to the “Copzilla’s” highly menacing police livery!

The newest member of the GT-R family is here! Nissan will be premiering the GT-R Track Edition at the 2017 New York Auto Show that is scheduled to take place next month. The Track Edition is positioned between the base Touring version and the range topper Nismo.

For the Track Edition, Nissan is asking for $18,000 more than its entry level model which is currently priced at $109,990 MSRP. But they didn’t give it that rate just because they want to. Customers will be delighted because the third member of the GT-R family will be acquiring several features of the Nismo. Some of which are the 20-inch forged aluminum wheels, a carbon fiber rear spoiler, Nismo rear fenders, and a suspension setup like that of the range topper.

The 2017 model will be having the same engine specifications as the Touring model - a biturbo 3.8 liter V6. These provide 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque, with a six-speed dual clutch gearbox.

During the The Grand Tour’s final episode, host Richard Hammond did what few people expected him to do. He had a Porsche 918 Spyder race against what appears to be standard Nissan Patrol.

You would think you know the result of this battle but the thing is, this is not your typical Nissan SUV. It is fitted with a turbocharged engine, like the one inside the GT-R. Rather than the usual 285 hp (212 kW), this engine is capable of 1,900 hp (1,416 kW). As such, it resulted in a maximum speed of 205 mph (329 km/h).

You probably know where we are going with this so it won’t be surprising then to know that when the race was done on the streets of Dubai, the Nissan Patrol dominated and left the Porsche 918 far behind. No wonder the internet is now calling it as the “918 Killer.”

A new body configuration will be added to Nissan’s Titan and Titan XD large pickup trucks starting in the 2017 model year. The Japanese carmaker announced at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show that its Crew Cab and Single Cab body configurations for the Titan and Titan XD are now joined by the new King Cab body.

With the announcement, Nissan’s Titan and Titan XD lineup is now available in three cabs and three bed length configurations. Both the Titan King Cab and Titan XD King Cab are available in either 4x4 and 4x2 drive. Three grade levels -- S, SV and PRO-4X – are also offered.

The King Cab configuration is basically a cross between the Crew Cab and Single Cab. Its cabin is smaller than on the Crew Cab but is still larger than the Single Cab. Moreover, the King Cab still offers seating for rear passengers, just like the Crew Cab. According to Nissan, the King Cab version of the half-ton Titan and the three-quarter ton Titan XD will be able to accommodate up to six occupants – three in the somewhat cramp rear cabin and another three on the front row. The front row usually seats two – the driver and a passenger.

As it is, the new Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X pickup truck is already a mean machine ready to take on anything on the road or even off it. But of course, a customer could always make the Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X pickup truck much meaner and more full of character – by availing of Nissan Genuine Parts and Accessories as well as aftermarket components.

To show how customers could spice up the meaningful character of the Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X, the Japanese carmaker – through its Nissan Motorsports division -- is bringing the pickup truck to the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. However, this pickup truck – a 2017 Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X Crew Cab in Super Black finish -- has been configured and modified with Nissan Genuine Parts and Accessories and available aftermarket parts. Dubbed as the new Motorsports Titan XD, this modified Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X is also outfitted with a prototype suspension kit and exhaust system.

Dubbed as the new Motorsports Titan XD, this tweaked pickup truck will be fully shown to the public at Chicago's McCormick Place from February 11 to 20, 2017.

Nissan has finally unveiled its racer for the upcoming 2017 season of the Japanese Super GT Series – the 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo GT500. Apparently, Nissan has made a number of design changes on its Super GT racer, seeking to repeat its feat in 2014 and 2015 when it won the championship. While Nissan failed to capture its third championship this year, it developed and designed the 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo GT500 to enable it to recapture the crown while still abiding by the rules and regulations of the Japanese Super GT series.

The Japanese Super GT racing series has always been enjoyable and fun to watch not just because of speed and dynamics involved, but also because this competition features some of the hottest looking cars in the planet. Looking forward, the 2017 season of the Japanese Super GT is really something to look forward to because of some changes in the aero rules.

Apparently, the race cars competing in the Super GT have become too fast and too stable, and that has rendered the racing action seemingly boring. So, organizers decided to make the action more thrilling and more enjoyable -- by tweaking the regulations to compel manufacturers to reduce the downforce on their GT500 cars by 25 percent, thereby theoretically reducing cornering speeds. While this obliged carmakers to revise the looks of their racers, the apparent visual changes have resulted to better- and hotter-looking race vehicles.

Nissan GT-R has been a favorite car among drivers who take their rides to the drag scene. Around the world, GT-R drivers from around the world try to outdo each other’s rigs, especially when it comes to the quarter-mile record. After all, the quarter mile is considered as the best measure for drag performance, taking in three main factors that could greatly influence the final result – reaction time, engine power and traction.

The quarter mile world record used to belong to the Nissan GT-R of AMS Alpha Omega, completing the length in just 7.7 seconds at 186 mph (300 km/h). In January, it was broken by Ekanno Racing’s Bahrain-built Nissan GT-R, which managed to complete the quarter mile in 7.44 seconds with a top speed of 209 mph (336 km/h). That was pretty quick, considering that a typical Nissan GT-R was tested to have completed the quarter mile in 11.6 seconds 120.0 mph (193.1 km/h). But that was not the end for Ekanno Racing’s Godzilla.

Built to deliver the needed performance by T1 Race Development, Ekanno Racing’s Nissan GT-R has been continuously improved, particularly with regards to its engine. As a matter of fact, the continuous enhancement of this Godzilla has allowed it to break the quarterly mile world record anew just recently. This Nissan GT-R shaved time off its previous quarter mile time by more than half of a second to 7.168 seconds, achieving a top speed of 209 mph (336 km/h) in the process.

Mareike Fox is a celebrated personality in the adult entertainment industry. While some of her contemporaries are happy sharing to the world their selfies, Fox is in a different world altogether. This 25-year old blond is well-known in certain circles for her passion when it comes to fast cars. Car enthusiasts are likely to be envious once they learn that Fox not only drives, but in fact owns a Nissan GT-R.

The 2017 Nissan GT-R in particular was released to the European market in September of this year. This model is powered by the twin-turbo 3.8-liter engine with an output of 562 hp (570 PS) and peak torque of 470 lb.-ft. (637 Nm). What is unique about this engine is that it was handcrafted from beginning to end by a single Takumi, which is Japanese for master craftsman. What sets this new GT-R apart from the rest is that it comes equipped with the 20-inch forged aluminum NISMO Racing Black wheels fitted with special tires and also comes with a wider front bumper. In addition, each of the special GT-R will have the distinct carbon fiber 'Track Edition' badge placed on the dashboard. Under the body, one can see the Bilstein Damptronic bespoke suspension which has lightweight anti-roll bars and a configuration tuned for racing.

In terms of the interior, the actual specifications will differ depending on the market. But models to be released in Germany will have as standard Recaro seats that are carbon-backed with a carbon spoiler in the rear as option. For both the France and UK markets meanwhile, the carbon spoiler is fitted as standard as well as the red and black Recaro seats. Available as an option are the carbon-backed seats and the carbon boot lid.

In 2007, when Nissan first introduced the R35 Nissan GT-R at the 2007 Los Angeles Auto Show, the car carried with intense power and a price tag of $78,000. Up to this day, such a price tag would leave car enthusiasts and collectors at a loss. However, for the power and perks that this car brings along, many will agree that its price tag is worth it.

Just recently, Nissan introduced to the world the newest successor of the Godzilla bloodline and its flagship GT-R, the 2017 GT-R Nismo. Just like its predecessors and the version before it, this year’s GT-R Nismo will carry with it a price tag for the gods.

The 2017 GT-R Nismo comes with a starting price of $174,990, which is a $25,000 increase from the 2016 GT-R Nismo’s price tag. Albeit its price tag, Nissan assures that it will still be an attractive proposition because the GT-R Nismo comes with a couple of updates which will entice the customers to avail one. And earlier this year, Nissan gave the standard GT-R updates and some standard facelifts. And guess what? The same updates will also be given to the new GT-R Nismo. Basically, the GT-R Nismo will receive a modern day facelift, a modernization that has been overdue for Nissan’s performance flagship.
