CEO Says Nismo Will Be Coming out with GT-R in Next 12 Months

Nissan’s Nismo performance arm will be coming out with an even hotter version of the cult-followed GT-R in the next 12 months.

“It would be unthinkable for us to develop a range of Nismo road cars without including the GT-R,” Ghosn said.

Nissan has historically made a point of tweaking the GT-R for improved performance year after year, including the 2014 model. Now the automaker has officially confirmed that its new flagship will be a Nismo-tuned version of the car. This announcement was made on Tuesday, February 26th, during the official opening of its new Nismo headquarters in Japan.

Although performance specifications weren’t announced for the car, Ghosn said that it will not only be revealed, but will be ready for driving in a 12-month time frame. News about the car was part of a larger announcement that Nismo will be expanding greatly in the future. That expansion will include not only the flagship GT-R, but a line of “affordable performance cars” as well.

“Nismo is a key element in Nissan‘s future global road car and motorsports strategy and we will quickly establish it as Nissan’s exclusive performance brand,” Nismo President, Shoichi Miyatani said. “This is the first time that all of our team has been located together, and the entire family will become a hothouse of passion and performance.”

Ghosn explains that the new facility will serve as a “think tank” to develop unique, cutting edge cars, and will allow Nissan to strengthen its motorsports presence.

Audi Builds 5 Millionth Quattro Vehicles

Something special went down in Audi‘s history when a white A6 allroad 3.0 TDI rolled off the assembly line in Neckarsulm, Germany. It just so happens that car is the five millionth to be built with the brand’s quattro all-wheel drive technology. Right now, Audi can boast having built more than 140 quattro variants, its said in a press release.

“Quattro is one of the key pillars of our brand and has been a critical factor in our successful history,” said Audi chairman of the board of management Rupert Stadler.

Audi says over 43 percent of its customers chose to buy their car with quattro all-wheel drive in 2012. Particularly popular in North America, Russia, and the Middle East, the Q5 SUV was most frequently purchased with the system.

After its debut in 1980, quattro has since progressed to encompass several systems. In the A3, Q3, and TT, power is biased to the front wheels but is capable of diverting almost all the engine’s power to the rear.

On the other hand, most model put 60 percent of the engine’s torque to the rear wheels by default while torque is distributed between the wheels to maximize traction. Finally, the RS4 and RS5 use a version that can direct up 85 percent of the torque to the front wheels, or up to 70 percent to the rear.
