Nissan GT-R/C is a full-size remote control car with a difference

To celebrate the launch of Gran Turismo Sport, Nissan has created a GT-R with... a difference. Rather than relying on a driver or conventional remote, the GT-R/C is controlled with a DualShock 4 unit from the PlayStation 4. The company sat Nismo driver, Jann Mardenborough, in an R44 Raven II helicopter and let him loose at Silverstone to show off its new toy...

Surfing safari in the 2017 Nissan Patrol Ti

When I conjure up images of Nissan Patrols, I imagine them alongside Toyota LandCruisers of old, expanding the boundaries of our great island nation every which way. As I was growing up, they were almost mentioned in the same sentence and were the only options for serious off-roaders. The Patrol's appearance was boxy, functional and unashamedly agricultural...

We test every generation of Nissan GT-R from the R32 to the R35, on the same dyno

As you may have already seen, we recently had a brand-new Nissan R35 GT-R Nismo come through the garage. We had the car for a week, so, of course, we had to figure out a few interesting things to do with it. We've always wanted to line up every generation of GT-R for a photoshoot, so we started reaching out to local GT-R owners in Queensland...

2017 Tokyo motor show: What to expect

The 2017 Tokyo motor show is almost upon us, with Japan's big show having slumbered since this time two years ago. The 2015 Tokyo motor show gave us the tiny Toyota S-FR concept, Nissan's Leaf-previewing IDS show car, the Subaru Impreza concept (now in production) and Viziv Future concept, Daihatsu's quirky Nori Ori and Tempo concepts, and a host of others...

Can the $329,000 Nismo R35 GTR take down a new Lamborghini Huracan? We find out!

It is rare that manufacturers will allow us to take a car off the showroom floor and onto the race track, so when we were given the green light to do any test we wanted, we were excited to see exactly what the most expensive (and most powerful) Nissan road car ever produced could achieve down the quarter mile at the local drag strip - Willowbank Raceway in Queensland...

Exactly how much power does the new 2017 Nissan Nismo GT-R make? We will show you

During our few days with the Nismo R35 GT-R, we were able to do a number of tests, including throwing it on the dyno to see exactly how much power it put out, and how much more power it offers than the "non-Nismo" standard version from the same year...

2017 Nissan 370Z Nismo v Holden Ute SS-V Redline comparison

The Commodore name may be living on but the Holden Ute passes away officially on 20 October when production of that most Australian of icons end. And uncertainty surrounding the future of Nissan’s legendary Z-series means the 370Z Nismo could be the last hurrah for a lineage that runs back nearly 50 years – to the original, 1969 Datsun 240Z...

2018 Nissan Patrol pricing and specs

Australian pricing and details for the 2018 Nissan Patrol have been handed down today, marking its first major change since the middle of 2015. Back then, the biggest change was in the accounting books, with a huge $23,400 cut from the newly entry-level Ti model for a new $69,990 number, while the top-spec Ti-L benefited from an even bigger $27,500 cut to $86,990...

You've got a dilemma. You need a workhorse and bells and whistles but don't want to spend mega bucks. You could opt for a poverty pack ute and deal with the missing features, or, you could stump up the cash for the latest work-oriented dual-cab utes from Nissan and Volkswagen...

Nissan 350Z Races Porsche 911 GT3, Both Get Beaten by Surprise Challenger!

While the majority of us live under the control of our nanny government's speed limits, commuters on parts of the German autobahn have the luxury of not being confined to any such limits. It's thanks to this that we are blessed with videos like the above, showing what happens when a supercharged Nissan 350Z tackles a Porsche 911 GT3, but that's not all! Wait until a surprise contender comes out of nowhere...

What is TURBO FLUTTER and compressor surge? Is it Bad?

Myth-busting in our 800whp Nissan R32 GTR! You may have heard turbocharged vehicles make a whole lot of noise when the driver backs off the throttle, specifically those with large turbos, large intercoolers, no blow off valve, and non restrictive intakes. But exactly what is this sound, does it hurt your turbo, and how does it happen...

2000+HP SWITZER R35 GTR LOSES CONTROL AT 218MPH (349KPH)!

We recently posted a clip of the "Goliath" R35 GT-R racing, and beating, a 1000hp BMW M5. Even with a 400m head start, the BMW was no match for the modified Godzilla. What we didn't show is what happens next... The GT-R loses control at 218MPH! That's 349KPH for the rest of the world..

The famous supercar-killing Nissan Maxima is for sale, and could be yours!

A few weeks ago we got an email from a little birdy telling us that the infamous supercar-killing Nissan Maxima was for sale, and we just had to research it! Unless you've been living under a rock, you would have seen the Mexican bloke chilling in the driver's seat as he tore shreds off a yellow Porsche 911 Turbo that couldn't keep up with him down the strip...

2017 Nissan Navara SL Review

See the full article here. Everybody thinks that tradies that buy utes fall into one of two categories — those that buy a ute for work or those that buy one for lifestyle reasons. There's now a middleground of buyer that wants the look and ruggedness of an entry level work ute, but the ability of a lifestyle weekender that can be bought without spending mega dollars...

2017 Nissan Navara ST-X review

The Nissan Navara dual-cab separates itself from the crowd with coil springs at the rear and with the Series II upgrades, it's supposed to be even better than the first version.
