Nissan Altima V8 Supercar gets ready for competition Down Under.
Your average Nissan Altima packs a four-cylinder engine. Some have V6s, but this one... this has a V8. That's because it's a V8 Supercar, as in the Australian touring car championship. The new racecar is slated to compete with the Ford Falcon, Holden Commodore and new Mercedes E63 AMG in the series next year. It was unveiled over a month ago, but has by now gotten out on the track to stretch its legs the way a racecar should. This is just one of the many Nissan racecars competing on tracks around the world on any given weekend.
Nissan may not compete in F1, NASCAR or the WRC, but it powers more Le Mans prototypes than any other, the GT-R competes in a variety of sportscar racing series, and the DeltaWing has been making everyone question what a racing car can and should be.
