A little over a month after premiering at the Tokyo Motor Show, Japanese sales of the Nissan Serena Nismo have commenced.

Priced from 3,419,280 yen ($30,397), the minivan receives a host of modifications that give it that characteristic Nismo flare and is sure to be popular among Japanese enthusiasts who often love to turn heads with their rides.

Starting at the exterior, the Serena Nismo receives a custom front bumper with LED daytime running lights in the shape of the number ‘7’. Elsewhere, there is a host of bright red accents, including on the side skirts and around the rear fascia, along with 17-inch wheels riding on Bridgestone Potenza Adrenalin RE003 tires size 205/50/R17. . 

Inside, Nissan has installed an Alcantara-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel, leather shift knob, 7-inch display, and numerous red accents, while offering the option of body-hugging front sport seats.

While the visual tweaks catch the eye, it is the inclusion of Nissan’s ProPILOT system that is the real headline. Previously introduced on a handful of other Nissan models, the technology allows for autonomous driving in single-lane traffic on highways.

The Serena’s NISMO transformation also includes an ECU tune along with a sports muffler for the 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine, though Nissan hasn’t disclosed output figures (the standard engine produces 147 horses). A new custom suspension that includes different shocks, springs and stabilizer together with new cross members and re-tuned VDC (Vehicle Dynamics Control) with an off switch, are also part of the package.

Posted by Brad Anderson in Classics, japan, Nismo, nissan, Nissan Skyline, Reports on 11 24th, 2017


Nissan has announced its new Nismo Heritage program, designed to ensure that the Japanese firm’s most famous models remain on the roads for as long as possible.

First uncovered back in April, the Nismo Heritage program is a joint project between Nissan, Nissan Motor Sports, Autech Japan, and a selection of suppliers. The program will see replacement parts produced, initially for the iconic R32-generation Skyline GT-R.

When sales of the parts commence on December 1, approximately 80 genuine parts will be available to R32 GT-R owners. Among these parts will be harnesses, hoses, emblems, and a selection of exterior components. In the near future, additional parts will be added to Nissan’s inventory and soon, both the R33 and R34 GT-R models will be included in Nismo Heritage.

If Nissan is unable to reproduce certain parts with original suppliers, Nismo will consider replacing these parts with substitute, rebuilt or overhauled products.

2018 Nissan GT-R Becomes $10k More Affordable With New Entry-Level Pure 3

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in new cars, Nismo, nissan, nissan gt-r, prices on 11 3rd, 2017


Nissan has announced the pricing details on the 2018 GT-R family in the United States, which now starts at $99,990, without destination and handling, something that adds another $1,695 to each grade.

The sub-$100k pricing refers to a new entry-level model called Pure, which slots under the Premium, undercutting it by $10,500, and lacking some of its features such as the titanium exhaust, Bose sound system, Active Noise Cancellation, and Active Sound Enhancement.

Other novelties for the 2018MY is the inclusion of Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity to NissanConnect with Navigation and Services, as well as the introduction of the black ‘Kuro Night’ color for the Premium Interior Package.

Available from $128,490, the Nissan GT-R Track Edition is now in its second year. It borrows some elements from the range-topping Nismo, while retaining the same version of the 3.8-liter V6 engine that powers both the Pure and Premium flavors, rated at 565hp and 467lb-ft (633Nm) of torque.

Described as “the ultimate GT-R”, the Nissan GT-R Nismo continues to be offered in limited numbers across North America. Pricing starts at $175,000, and users will get to enjoy, besides the numerous motorsport-inspired technologies, a power bump of the 3.8L unit, which makes 600hp and 481lb-ft (652Nm) in the range-topping Godzilla.
