It's a Nissan shoot out.

Nissan recently showcased its versatility at the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide, Australia, by pitting its Leaf Nismo RC against the Nissan GT-R and Altima V8 supercar. The Leaf Nismo RC is powered by a lithium-ion battery and AC synchronous motor delivering 107 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. It weighs just over a ton, so it’s no slouch. The Nissan GT-R is a car we’ll never tire of seeing on the track, and in its current form uses a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 rated at 545 hp and 463 lb-ft of torque.

The Altima V8’s exact power rating is unknown, but falls somewhere in the region of 625 to 650 horsepower. It runs on E85 with RPMS limited 7,500.The Leaf RC is naturally given a head start in the three-way battle and the finish is closer than you may think. Jump to 3:30 if you want to go straight to the action.
