Nissan Australia unveils 2013 Altima V8 Supercar
Nissan unveiled a very special edition Altima yesterday at a launch event in Melbourne on Tuesday as the automaker prepares for entry in Australia’s V8 Supercars Championship next season. The new Nissan Altima V8 Supercar is the first all-new model unveiled in 20 years as Nissan joins the championship
“This is a proud day for Nissan and a significant occasion for the sport of V8 Supercars,” said Nissan Australia Managing Director and CEO William F. Peffer Jr. “Everyone at Nissan is right behind our team, led by Todd and Rick Kelly, and we are excited about hitting the track next season with this spectacular Altima V8 Supercar.”
The new Nissan Altima V8 was designed and built to the category’s new ‘Car of The Future’ regulations and uses the production-based VK56DE engine in the Altima V8 Supercar, the same engine that powered Nissan to FIA GT1 World Championship glory in 2011.
