Nismo Celebrates 30th Anniversary

October 24, 2014

It’s been 30 years since Nismo engineers first began creating the infamous series of high performance vehicles in 1984.

Some of the new Nismo’s to hit the market include the Pulsar Nismo Hatchback, packing a punch of 270bhp and a signature red strip along the body of the model, together with a low-riding body kit and larger wheels. Debuted at the Paris Motor Show earlier this month, it will be available to buy next year

Set to arrive at the beginning of 2015 however is the 370Z NISMO, boasting a redesigned exterior with 19inch black and silver Rays alloys and a downsized spoiler to improve aerodynamics. The model will still offer its 339bhp together with 3.7 litre V6 engine, but this time with an improved suspension for a more comfortable drive.

The Juke Nismo RS is also set to his showrooms early next year. With a 1.6 litre turbocharged engine producing a whopping 215 BHP it is sure to pack a punch. This couple with a deeper front and rear air diffuser, bolder wheel arches and 18″ alloy wheels it is sure to turn a few eyebrows!

Whilst we have seen a fair share of innovations this year already, there is still much to look forward to in the shape of the upcoming supercar GT-R LM Nismo, which will be a big project to watch for enthusiasts in 2015. Always committed to pushing boundaries and exceeding vehicle expectations, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for future Nismo models!
