NISMO has served as one of the most premier performance divisions in the automotive industry and has come up with a line of unique, performance-driven designs since its founding in 1984. The latest model to roll off the line comes in the form of the 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO, a compact car designed to offer thrilling performance and pristine handling.
The Sentra NISMO pounds pavement with a 1.6-liter DIG turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 188 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque without breaking a sweat. The model is designed for enthusiasts who want to put the thrill back into driving a compact car.
As with all NISMO vehicles, the Sentra boasts a NISMO-tuned suspension and a reinforced chassis. That, combined with a lower stance, adds up to incredibly responsive handling. The 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels come standard and large front brake rotors complement the powerful engine.
Style comes standard as well, with several NISMO-exclusive cues. The fascias come emboldened by a signature red stripe while black outside mirrors add to the overall flair. The unique LED daytime running lights and front grille create an intimidating presence. A NISMO badge wraps up the whole package as one of the most performance-oriented compact cars to ever hit the street.
We here at Tom Naquin Nissan are pumped to see more performance-oriented cars coming out of the NISMO division!
Speed demons and car fans alike know the Nissan GT-R’s sleek style and power makes it one incredible supercar. Now the Japanese automaker is upping the ante with an even more powerful version of its supercar. The new 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo has arrived at dealerships and it packs the power to go along with its price.
The performance-driven Nissan GT-R Nismo boasts a starting price of $176,585, which sticks it around the range of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. That’s a significant increase compared to the GT-R Premium’s price of just over $111,000.
The new GT-R Nismo boasts a larger grille that’s as practical as it is aggressive. The new grille allows for more airflow to help cool the engine.
The new supercar brings a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces a furious 600 hp. The standard Nissan GT-R produces just 565 hp.
The sleek Nissan GT-R Nismo is assembled by hand and the name itself indicates upscale performance. The “GT” stands for “Grand Touring” while the “R” stands for “Racing.”
Differences between the standard model and Nismo performance version include the addition of carbon-fiber bumpers, black outside mirrors with a rear stripe, carbon fiber side sills, and a Titanium exhaust system. Inside, the GT-R Nismo boasts a leather instrument panel and lightweight seat design.
Here at Tom Naquin Nissan, we’re hyped to get behind the wheel of the new Nissan GT-R Nismo!
