Nissan Leaf EV NISMO Race Car Driven: Strap In, Whizz Away, and Take the Checkers—Sort Of

So Nissan has constructed an electric vehicle that ordinary individuals can afford, and that vehicle is getting sold to the public. Thrilling stuff, right? Properly, in a way, but the $ 36,050 (prior to any federal and/or local tax credits and incentives) Nissan Leaf is total of compromises. It’s sprightly but not quick, comfy but not spacious, gas-totally free but nevertheless range-hampered. It’s also kind of nerdy.

Here, then, is some type of antidote.

Picture that you have a kindly old aunt—let’s call her Edna—who has never ever felt at residence in her body. Now picture that, one particular day, she undergoes a sex-change operation: Goodbye Aunt Edna, hello Uncle Ed. She/he seems and sounds distinct, but she/he nonetheless loves you, nonetheless helps make that weird cream-cheese-broccoli casserole that produced you vurp final Fourth of July. Exact same man or woman, diverse wrapper.

At the chance of taking an odd metaphor too far, think about this the identical factor. The Leaf NISMO RC marries a Leaf’s lithium-ion battery pack and 80-kW, 107-hp AC synchronous motor to a exclusive chassis that attributes entire body panels and a monocoque rendered in carbon fiber. The wheelbase is shorter by three.9 inches ground clearance is just 2.four inches versus a street Leaf’s six.3. Curb weight is a claimed 2068 pounds, some 40 % lighter than that of a standard Leaf. Bride Racing seats, a pair of safety harnesses, a giant wing, and 18-inch aluminum wheels total the illusion. The finish outcome hits 62 mph in a claimed six.9 seconds, has a best speed of 93 mph, and tends to make the ordinary Leaf appear as alluring as a moldy Large Mac.

What racing series is this oddity legal for? None. So what do you do with it? We’re not really confident. You cannot get one, you cannot rent a ride in a single, and you cannot even shell out to see one particular compete. Call it Uncle Ed chained to the hospital bed, post-op.
