First-Ever 2015 GT-R NISMO for U.S. Market Gets Special Delivery

Friday, October 31st, 2014

 

Earlier this week, Matt McCulloh took delivery of the first 2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO made for the U.S. market. The North Carolina resident is now the very first owner of the 600-horsepower 2015 GT-R NISMO. On the day of arrival, McCulloh said: “It was like a surreal moment for me. I saw it, and it just took a second to register that this was finally my car. And that I was going to have the privilege to own the very first GT-R NISMO for the United States and be a part of the great 30-year history of the NISMO brand.” The day was momentous for Nissan because they realized that the first GT-R NISMO was going to a very unique owner; they learned that McCulloh is an passionate enthusiast and is very familiar with Nissan’s history. McCulloh co-founded NAGTROC, the North American GT-R Owners Club eight years ago which really made an impression with the auto manufacturer.  “When we realized his passion for the car, his involvement with the GT-R community, and his involvement with the brand, we wanted to do something a little extra special. First we wanted to be here, to shake his hand, see the smile on his face and just take pride in that moment with him,” said Jeff Simmons, Nissan Marketing.

Nissan Unveils Concept Vehicle at Sao Paulo International Show

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

 

Nissan’s design team noticed that there was a disconnect between their vehicles and the people of Brazil – they took action and developed the Kicks Concept which captures the high-spirited nature of the country and its people to bridge the gap and showcase the distinct design signature of Nissan cars. “This concept is a product of global collaboration, but it was inspired by the streets of Brazil and designed for its people,” said Mamoru Aoki, Executive Design Director of Nissan’s Global Design Strategy Department. The Kicks Concept was unveiled at the Sao Paulo International Motor Show earlier this month and the design truly captures the grey tones of the urban settings in Sao Paulo and the bright natural colors that can be found in Rio. “What we try to achieve is this kind of duality. It fits your pragmatic needs but also provides a sense of style and an extra sense of substance that we feel is missing in the market right now,” said Project Lead Designer Hiren Patel of Nissan Design America.

Nissan Debuts NISMO Lineup at 2014 Paris Motor Show

Friday, October 10th, 2014


Nissan took the NISMO model lineup to this year’s 2014 Paris Motor Show; the very popular, 40-year performance brand history made a name for itself in Paris earlier this month. For starters the Nissan Pulsar NISMO was looking very attractive and the way the red paint splitter carried round into the side skirts, we couldn’t stop starring. Nissan has been keeping many of the vehicle’s specification on the low, and the only thing we know is that it sits on 19 – inch wheels and a tuned suspension. Additionally, the Juke NISMO RS also made an appearance at the Motor Show in Paris; the Juke NISMO features notable changes and upgrades. Under the hood lies a 1.6 liter turbo petrol engine with the ability to push 215bhp – the bodyframe is stronger, the chassis is sharper and the brakes are bigger.

2016 Nissan Sentra to Undergo Model Redesign

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014


Nissan is planning a design refresh for the 2016 and 2017 Nissan Sentra model that will not include a hatchback model. The model will maintain its sporty design and will be equipped with a more expressive appearance, similar to that of the new Nissan Pulsar hatchback. Additionally, the Nissan Pulsar will head to the U.S. in its current form – this can be found as a little bit of a surprise since the United States market appears to be developing more of an appetite for hatchbacks. According to Nissan’s Design Chief and Senior Vice President Shiro Nakamura, Nissan will offer mid-cycle refreshes for both the Altima and the Sentra.

Nissan LEAF Used to Power a New Form of Street Art

Friday, October 3rd, 2014


The Nissan LEAF has recently found a new purpose; through the use of an inverter, the electric vehicle is able to energize an power washer to turn dirty city walls into beautiful murals without the use of paints or dyes. Reverse graffiti is a new art form that swaps the use of traditional paints most commonly used to graffiti with a power washer. The power washer wipes down layers of grime and dirt to create natural art works. This art form was pioneered by an artist known as Moose; he uses a power washer, powered by his Nissan LEAF to wipe away layers of dirt and grime to create beautiful and natural works of art. The Nissan LEAF is used by Moose to energize his power washer; this allows Moose to create murals emission free and considering his message, that is the way he plans to keep it.
