Nissan has launched the upgraded Note e-Power Nismo S in Japan, which gets some added kit and a power boost compared to the non-S-badged version that went on sale in that market in 2015.
Earlier this year, the Leaf Nismo was revealed with a stiffer suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels, new looks and a slew of unique interior touches. It didn't, however, get any more power to justify the hallowed Nismo badge.
Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign revealed ahead of Goodwood debut
Nissan has released a new set of images of the limited-run GT-R50 by Italdesign this week, ahead of a public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed later this month.
Estimated to cost around €900,000 ($1.418 million), and limited to just 50 units, the GT-R50 celebrates the 50th anniversaries of both the GT-R (2019) and Italdesign (2018).
In pleasing news for Nissan 370Z enthusiasts, CarAdvice has learned that the upcoming 2018 Nissan 370Z Nismo, due to launch locally in the coming weeks, will boast 253kW of power and 371Nm of torque.
Up 8kW and 8Nm on the standard – and recently price cut – Nissan 370Z, the outputs (luckily) put the local variant on par with versions offered in the UK and other overseas markets.
