Nismo Undergoing Major Changes Soon
Nissan announced today that once its new factory is opened, Nismo motorsports — the Japanese automaker’s performance arm — will undergo some major changes. On February 26th, 2013 Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn will reveal a new direction for Nismo’s core mission.
Nismo has a tradition of more than 30 years in motorsports expertise and tuning for road cars and during its impressive life it gained millions of global fans. Thanks to the new plant, which replaces the old one in Omori, Japan, Nismo will now benefit from a larger showroom for up to eight vehicles plus a retail outlet.
After the Juke Nismo, which is set to go on sale this spring, and the 370Z Nismo, which will go on sale later in 2013, Nissan is expected to announce more Nismo-badged performance versions of its road-car products. Also, on February 26th (February 25th in the U.S.), Nismo will reveal more about its future motorsport activities.
