Honda, the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer, has announced a new motorcycle – the 750 cc NM4 Vultus – and it's a bold departure from tradition with anime/manga styling, a "fighter pilot" feet-forward riding position, an ultra-low seat and advanced electronic rider assistance to make it easier to ride. This is a motorcycle aimed at the next generation of motorcycle enthusiast raised on video games and a different visual vocabulary. If you are a traditionalist, you'll probably hate it.  Read More

The Nissan GT-R Nismo goes on sale next year

For some unfathomable reason, Nissan apparently thought that its GT-R just wasn't mad enough, so they handed it over to Nissan Motorsports (Nismo) to refine it using experience gained on the Nürburgring Ring and at Le Man. The result, the Nissan GT-R Nismo, was unveiled last week at the Los Angeles Auto Show.  Read More

The GT-R captures Russia's ice speed record

The Nissan GT-R really didn't need a new speed record to remind us that it's a lotta car for a little buck – we remember that every time we look at its specs. But, in conjunction with LAV Productions company, Nissan went ahead and brought a specially outfitted GT-R to one of the coldest, least hospitable places on earth – Siberia – and returned with a new ice speed record.  Read More

Nismo will now play an even more prominent role as the company's performance car brand

Nissan opened a new global headquarters for its Nismo performance brand in Yokohama, Japan yesterday, at the same time as announcing a considerable promotion of the formerly niche brand to major performance car brand with a presence in every Nissan showroom globally.

The 2013 Nissan GT-R

The Nissan GT-R is a car most people will only dream of owning. It comes with a hefty price tag, and is only made in limited runs. Still, that doesn't stop us from marveling at its beauty. Nissan just showed off the 2013 GT-R for Japan, and it could be a preview of what's to come for the 2014 model when it ships to other territories. As you would expect from the GT-R, it's quite impressive.  Read More

The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power drew big crowds who enjoyed three days of speed, power, ...

The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power (CPoP) turned on its annual kaleidoscope of horsepower, adrenalin and engineering intrigue this week. The four wheel lap record was shattered by a Caterham, the BAC Mono was the fastest road car, while the cars running against the clock included an Ariel Atom 500 V8, Radical SR3 SL, Aston Martin One-77 and Noble M600. There was a Volkswagen "Schwimmwagen" amphibian, an Edison-Puton Monowheel, and a curious BMW built during WWI using a 45.8-liter V12 BMW aircraft engine. The gallery is a wonderful pictorial celebration of CPoP.  Read More

Nissan's JUKE-R concept

Happy times must be returning to the world economy when a car company can put its cash toward a concept like this. Nissan has fulfilled the wet dreams of hot hatch lovers all over the world by cramming the engine, drivetrain, suspension, electronics and sheer maniacal giggle factor of its monstrous GT-R supercar into the compact dimensions of the funky Juke city car. The Nissan Juke R (which can really only be pronounced as "Jew car") is an outstanding example of what happens when you give your best engineers the freedom to build what's in their hearts - in this case, a 480-horsepower, 4WD mega-mini-SUV that handles like a racer and should eat Ferraris for breakfast on the way to pick up the kids from soccer. Awesome.  Read More

Nissan Juke-R

UPDATED: NEW VIDEO Nissan is building two Juke-R concept cars. The tiny rocketships will be comprised of the all-wheel-drive drive-train and 480 bhp 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine from the Nissan GT-R supercar wedged into Nissan's diminutive crossover city car. The cars are being built by RML for Nissan Technical Centre for Europe (NTC-E) with a view to testing the “public’s reaction to a seriously sporty Juke.” The performance of the tiny super-city car is not yet known, but given the horsepower and dimensions of the vehicle, it will no doubt be one of the fastest accelerating roadcars in existence. There's also just a hint that should reaction be positive, it just might eventuate as a production model.  Read More
