Nissan Gripz Concept Walkaround : 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show

Read the article here. The Nissan Gripz concept car was on show at the 2015 Frankfurt motor show. It's a quirky looking melting pot of styles. It's got a definite dash of SUV, plus the Nissan Z theme is evident throughout - let alone the obvious misspelling of Grips (z) - plus it has a bit of a rally car vibe going on...

Nissan took the wraps off the biggest-ever Nismo-enhanced vehicle at a special launch event in Dubai. The unveiling marks the introduction of the Nismo performance division to the Middle East, where the “race-inspired” Patrol will be sold alongside the GT-R Nismo and 370Z Nismo...

1988 Nissan SKYLINE Review

Whenever I told my 17 year old mates that I owned a Skyline on my Provisional license I got the same reaction. "Oh man that's awesome! Is it an R34?" In the post-Fast and Furious world the late R34 Skyline, no matter whether it was a non-turbo sedan or the holy grail that is the GT-R, is the ultimate "JDM" car, unless you happened to know a rabid fan of the Toyota Supra...

2010 Nissan GT-R Review

How does it go, you may ask? Like a scalded cat. This particular GTR has been treated to a forged RB26 engine, Tomei 272 cams and a small but responsive Garret GT-X 30/76 sitting atop a 6boost manifold. It's definitely not the most powerful GT-R around with a modest 460 hp at all four on E85, but what it lacks in overall power it makes up for in response and the ability to put every single pony to the tarmac thanks to the Federal RSR semi slicks and the outstanding ATTESA AWD system...

2012 Nissan X-trail Tl (4x4) Review

This car does everything very well. My biggest gripe is the reverse gear which in the manual is way too tall- there's no need for such a high reverse gear and it necessitates a lot of clutch slipping when reversing up hill with a trailer. Having said that- the rest of the gearbox is a pleasure to use and changes smoothly and feels strong with great ratios for all manner of normal driving...

2012 Nissan Leaf Review

  I bought a new Nissan Leaf in in 2013. I have had the car for 2 years now and been very happy with its performance. The car has so much power you find yourself leaving the other motorists behind at the traffic lights. The only time you would pull into a fuel service station is to buy chocolates or a beverage...
