Check Out This Awesome Nissan GT-R Key Fob

Check Out This Awesome Nissan GT-R Key Fob

Not sure how practical this is to be used on a daily basis, but is sure as hell is a great party gimmick

We have seen smart keys with most of the uber cool cars in the market today. Although the keys look fancy and come with certain ‘wow’ features, this particular key fob has blown our minds. This Nissan GT-R has the most sophisticated key we have ever seen on a car. Although the design and shape of the key has been carried over, it comes with a host of other features.

Sourcing Parts for Your Classic Nissan is About to Get Easier

Sourcing Parts for Your Classic Nissan is About to Get Easier

And, they’ll be OE parts too

Owning a classic car, regardless of make and model, can be a very rewarding thing. On the flip side, it can also be very frustrating if you happen to need a replacement part that’s not made anymore, or only available in the aftermarket. The latter of which can be pretty hit and miss, as oftentimes aftermarket parts for classic cars are far from OE standards and will either fail early on or potentially lead to damaging your baby. Well, if you own a classic Nissan, things are about to get a little easier, as it has just announced a new “Heritage Parts Program.” This new program will operate as a new division of Nismo and will kick things off by offering a whole host of OE spare parts for the R32 Skyline GT-R. Nissan has said the program will expand to other classic performance models but has yet to elaborate on what models will be next.

This move puts Nissan into a group of elite manufacturers like Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and even BMW — all of which offer similar programs for their classic cars as well. It’s likely that the next cars added to this program will be the R33 and R34 skyline as well, and hopefully, we’ll see support for models like the Fairlady Z or 300zx, Pulsar GTi-R, and the Primera GT, among others. There’s no word on whether or not this program will be available to those in the U.S., but considering there’s a decent market for older imported skylines here in the U.S. (thanks to U.S. import laws that force us to wait what seems like a lifetime,) I would have to say that at least certain parts offered under this new program will eventually be available here. If not, you can always overnight parts from Japan, right?

Nissan Unveils Titan XD Accessories At 2016 SHOT Show

Nissan Unveils Titan XD Accessories At 2016 SHOT Show

Nissan helps customers make their Titan XD their own

The aftermarket pickup truck accessory market is big business and Nissan is looking to grab a bite of the action. At the 2016 annual Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show in Las Vegas, Nissan unveiled a wide selection of accessories to fit the all-new 2016 Nissan Titan XD. These accessories help upfit the Titan for outdoor use or for those with active lifestyles, making the SHOT Show the perfect place for the announcement.

"With 1,600 exhibitors filling 630,000 square feet of exhibit space, it’s a challenge to stand out. Fortunately, we have a couple of Titan XD pickups on hand, which always draw a crowd wherever they go," said Fred Diaz, president of North American trucks for Nissan. "The all-new Titan XD is the perfect canvas for customization and the SHOT Show is a great venue to spotlight our complete line of custom-fit, custom-designed and durability tested accessories."

Many of the accessories are custom-fit for the Titan XD, some even making use of the Titan’s Utili-track bed channels and cleat system. Nissan’s Titan Boxes, for example, fit snuggly against the inside bed rails of the truck, providing extra storage space while sill allowing room within the bed. Since the Titan Boxes fit within the bed, they can still be used with a tonneau cover or bed topper.

There’s also a sliding tool box that moves along the bed channels to accommodate cargo or easy access from the tailgate. Bed dividers, trailer hitches, chrome step rails, splash guards, seat covers, fog lights, and even off-road lights are available. There’s even a bed tent that secures inside the cargo box for an off-the-ground camping experience.

Best of all, if you purchase the accessories when you buy the Titan, the Nissan dealership will install the parts and protect them with a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty.

2016 Nissan Titan XD Gets "Measured Up": Video

The aftermarket scene will have products ready to sell when the all-new, 2016 Nissan Titan XD hits showroom floors later this year. That’s thanks to Nissan’s partnership with the Specialty Equipment Market Association, or SEMA, and the individual businesses that make it up.

The video above details Nissan’s recent measurement session with several aftermarket companies all vying to get detailed measurements of many key areas on the truck in preparation for designing bolt-on parts like wheels, tonneau covers, bumpers, fender flairs, and side steps.

“Measuring sessions are really an opportunity for the entire aftermarket community to step in and really get access to these new vehicles,” says Jim Moore, Senor Director of OEM Relations for SEMA. “If you imagine a vehicle as the canvas, the aftermarket thinks of itself as the paint, so there’s a relationship there that one can’t happen without the other.”

Also present were performance types like Gale Banks, the legendary diesel tuner. That ignites high hopes of having a large aftermarket support for the all-new 5.0-liter Cummins V-8 turbodiesel. Parts might include larger turbos and intercoolers, high-flow fuel injectors, and ECU tunes. Other parts like performance brakes, axle gears, and locking differentials are likely among the mix as well.

It seems the Titan XD will have quite the laundry list of accessories ready for truck buyers – all so folks can make their rig their own.

Deep Dive: Nissan Titan XD's Cummins Turbocharger

Deep Dive: Nissan Titan XD’s Cummins Turbocharger

Anticipation is growing over the new 2016 Nissan Titan XD and its all-new 5.0-liter Cummins V-8 turbodiesel. Now with the official debut at the North American International Auto Show behind it, Nissan is slowly diving into the details of what makes the truck tick. In this case, the info swirls around the innovative turbocharging system bolted to the Cummins V-8.

The animation above shows just how the airflow moves through the two-stage turbo using a patented, Holset rotary valve that controls airflow through the system. Basically the turbo uses an extra set of turbines on both the exhaust and intake sides that increase pressure, getting boost flowing to the engine at lower engine speeds. Conversely, both the exhaust and intake sides have larger, low-pressure chambers that move vast amounts of air during higher engine speeds. The larger chambers act as the main boost-generating turbines.

During low-rpm acceleration, the smaller turbines spool up quickly, providing boost while the larger turbines take over during more aggressive throttle applications. This contributes to the 5.0-liter’s impressive 310 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque ratings. Nissan promises the truck will have staggering towing and hauling capabilities, likely making the Titan XD the most capable half-ton truck on the market.

The turbo system includes four separate modes. They are: high-pressure turbo mode, low-pressure turbo mode, wastegate turbo mode, and regen turbo mode. Within the entire assembly, two active valve systems work to control the airflow. On the intake side, a compressor bypass valve routes air either through or around the high-pressure turbine, while the exhaust side uses the patented valve Cummins calls the “Rotary Turbine Control” valve. As its name suggests, the valve is shaped like a cylinder and rotates. The valve directs air into either the high-pressure or low-pressure turbines.

Simply put, the system works to eliminate lag associated with larger turbos while still providing the grunt that big-bore turbochargers are known for.

2013 Nissan GT-R Facelift will have to do until Next-Gen GT-R in 2018

2013 Nissan GT-R Facelift will have to do until Next-Gen GT-R in 2018

The Nissan GT-R will thankfully not be the one trick pony we were all lead to believe a few months ago. Nissan has already confirmed that the company is indeed planning a new generation sports car, but that it won’t arrive for at least another five years. Wipe the tears and stifle the grunts because they’re at least going to throw us a bone with a new facelift for the 2013 model year.

The 2013 Nissan GT-R will feature significant changes to the exterior design and the engine, which is a good thing considering the long wait ahead of us for the new generation. The 2013 model year will also mark the GT-R’s sixth anniversary, making an extravagant facelift something of a certainty. All we know as of right now is that it will feature a new bumper and new headlamps. Hopefully, there’s a lot more up Nissan’s sleeve,

As for the next generation, Kazutoshi Mizuno - chief engineer and product specialist of the GT-R - said that Nissan is watching the development of the upcoming Acura NSX closely since Honda has already announced that their hybrid NSX will lap the Nurburgring faster than the GT-R. That direct hit to the GT-R should light a fire under Nissan’s rear end to make their next generation bigger and badder. Part of that more extravagant package should be a new and competitive hybrid system.

Video: Duxcoat Ruined our Wet T-Shirt Fun

Video: Duxcoat Ruined our Wet T-Shirt Fun

There are a few obligatory things in any attention-grabbing car commercial. They are a desirable car, sweet cool music, and the optional good looking woman, and by optional we mean mandatory… Well, Duxcoat, a water and stain repellant company, decided to show us exactly how confident they are in their Nano paint treatment using the mandatory woman and one not-so-mandatory addition. For those that don’t know what Nano paint treatment is, it is a sealant that prevents water and stains from sitting on your car’s paint or windshield.

Onto the video… So, you have a rather attractive and (ahem) “well-equipped” woman jogging down an old dirt road in a white shirt, a Nissan Frontier, and a puddle of water. Hmm, can you do the math? If not, call in any former member of a fraternity and he’ll explain it to you (white shirt + water = see-through shirt and lots of hoops and hollers). In to ruin the fun is a well-fed man with upper torso equipment not quite as intriguing as the running woman’s.

All three converge in front of the mud puddle, leaving the woman and man soaked. Every male TopSpeed reader is now thinking the same thing “Woo Hoo!!” Well, there is a “wardrobe malfunction” in this commercial, but only with one of the two folks in white shirts. The other one is wearing a shirt coated with… Duxcoat! We’re not going to tell you which one, but we’ll leave it at this; at a certain angle, man boobs look a lot like those found on a female, so be careful with the staring on this one. You might give people the wrong idea.

You’ve gotta love creative advertising. Enjoy!

Video: Nissan Project 370Z - Stage Two

Video: Nissan Project 370Z - Stage Two

When Nissan last updated us with their Project 370Z last month, they were still in the process of building the car’s powertrain, which, incidentally, was chosen by the fans.

Ever the quintessential power junkies, the fans wanted the car to have more power, so Nissan obliged by fitting in a Greddy twin turbo kit that increased the total output of the custom 370Z to an impressive 500 horsepower. To accommodate the increased output, Nissan also added a Greedy Ti-C catback exhaust system, a KW suspension kit, and a stop-tech big brake kit.

Moving on to Stage Two of Project 370Z, Nissan went about the interior design of the car, as well as putting it up on the dyno for some much-needed testing. Project 370Z mechanic Steve Lam can be seen on the video discussing the process involved in putting the 370Z up on the dyno, as well as the decisions made on the design of the sports car’s interior.

If you’ve been following this series, it’s a must-watch video. If you’re catching up, you can check out part one of the video series after the jump and work your way up to part two.

Nissan introduces "self-healing" iPhone case

Nissan introduces "self-healing" iPhone case

Japanese automaker Nissan is introducing a new, state-of-the-art technology that promises "self-healing" capabilities. We’d love to tell you that this is some kind of joke, but the truth is, it’s not.

In all seriousness, Nissan is unveiling a cell phone accessory that features their new Scratch Shield paint technology. According to Nissan, the Scratch Shield paint technology promises to heal small scratches within an hour for less-serious instances, and up to a week’s time in more serious occurrences.

The technology was developed by Nissan in collaboration with University of Tokyo and Advanced Softmaterials Inc. This material is expected to be used in a number of future Nissan and Infiniti models, but will make its debut as an protective accessory for the iPhone 4 and 4S models.

The case is made out of ABS plastic, a material that’s stronger and tougher than any other kind of plastic and, when combined with their new Scratch Shield technology, promises to be a revolutionary new safety accessory to protect our beloved iPhones.

We’ve seen some pretty crazy things being invented the past couple of years, but a cell phone case that heals itself?

That’s something we’d love to take a look at.

2012 Nissan 370Z Nismo RC

2012 Nissan 370Z Nismo RC

It seems Nissan Motorsport engineers have been fiddling around in the shop lately and have combined a Nissan 370Z with a street-legal 370Z Nismo Coupe to create the new 370 Nismo RC. This new race car conforms to FIA GT4 and World Challenge GTS class specifications and can even be modified to compete in the Grand Am Continental Tire Challenge GS class. Nissan has already begun taking orders.

The new Nismo 370Z RC is significantly lighter than its production variant, coming in at 2,954 lbs to the Nismo 370Z’s 3,314 lbs and the standard 370Z’s 3,245 lbs. The Nismo 370Z RC is powered by a 3.7-liter VQ-series V6 engine that delivers a total of 355 HP at 7,400 rpm with 276 lbs of torque at 5,200 rpm, 5 HP more than the Nismo 370Z. Helping the engine along is a Nismo race exhaust, a Nismo tuned ECM, and high capacity Nismo clutch, flywheel, engine oil, transmission, and differential coolers. The engine is also stocked with numerous hose and connector upgrades to meet the rigorous demands of track use.

The new Nismo 370Z RC comes equipped with an FIA-compliant roll cage, a fire extinguisher, a Recaro racing seat with 6-point racing harness, a Sparco racing steering wheel, a revamped, and a race-ready carbon fiber switch panel.

Umbrella Auto Design gives the Nissan GTR an interior you'll have to take to the cleaners

Umbrella Auto Design gives the Nissan GTR an interior you’ll have to take to the cleaners

How is it that some people can turn something that already looks sickeningly awesome into something even better? It takes some talent, I’ll tell you that. And on top of talent, it also takes some brilliant piece of innovation.

Umbrella Auto Design seems to have both of those things – talent and innovation – in abundance considering they managed to turn the Tokyo Drift interior of an already stunning Nissan GT-R into a dressed up piece of black suede awesomeness.

These guys went to completely all-out on the project, overhauling the whole interior using Black Ultrasuede with silver stitching. They replaced the dashboard, the console, the side panels, the seats, the subwoofer cover, the tray, and the steering wheel. The only things they left out are the floor mats, although we won’t be surprised if they actually used some suede on them.

The result is something undeniably sick you’d probably wonder why Nissan never considered doing something like this with the GT-R. Then again, that’s what aftermarket shops are for, right?

One thing we do know is that nobody’s eating French fries or drinking Mountain Dew while inside this car. You can take that to the bank.

Nissan jumps into the custom graphic wraps bandwagon

Nissan jumps into the custom graphic wraps bandwagon

A few months ago, Ford struck a deal with Original Wraps to create custom vinyl wraps for the Ford Fiesta. Now, it looks like another manufacturer is looking to dig in to the custom vinyl wrap pie.

Nissan’s jumping on-board and unlike Ford, they’re receiving custom wraps for a number of their models. The first Nissan vehicle to receive a customized vinyl wrap is the Nissan Cube, which will be followed by the Nissan Juke, and then the Nissan Frontier.

More products are expected to be added in the future, possibly for a number of newer Nissan models.

According to Original Wraps, each of the wraps have a life span of up to three years and will be installed by a professional and can also be taken down easily without the fear of leaving any marks on the car.

Contrary to what others may think - that vinyl wraps are a little tacky - these wraps for Nissan actually look pretty cool. You can even customize your own design according to your personal whim. But if you’re a dude, we highly suggest you stay away from that “Flower Power” design.

Nissan Creates Health & Well Being Concept

Nissan Creates Health & Well Being Concept

Nissan has gone a bit health conscious. The Japanese automaker has revealed its all-new “Health & Well-Being” concept that will attempt to create a more healthy and comfortable environment for drivers and passengers.

The car has three features that will make those goals achievable. They are a comfortable captain’s seat, an advanced climate control system, and a quick comfort seat heater. All of these will help reduce stress by optimizing blood flow and improving air quality.

The comfortable captain seat has plenty of unique feature that make it so much more than a normal chair. These features include a seat cushion-integrated leg rest, an articulated seatback, and three-layered cushion pads. Nissan hopes that this new seat will improve blood flow and reduce fatigue, but with a chair this comfortable, it might make you want to take a nap.

The climate control system has three fancy devices that are aimed at improving air quality. The first is a plasmacluster ions generator. This system is basically vitamin C and it will reduce airborne bacteria and mold levels. The other two devices are inside/outside air control and a grape polyphenol clean air filter. Nissan is also quick to point out that the vitamin C ions can help moisturize skin.

The final technological device is the quick comfort seat heater. The seat applies heat to the thighs and buttocks first, then it moves on to the lower back and thighs again. This will shorten the time it takes the passenger to feel warm by 35 percent.

The Health and Well-Being concept is part of Nissan’s larger “Life on Board” strategic technology focus.

Hit the jump to see the press release.

Nissan may stop production of Altima and Sentra in North America

Nissan may stop production of Altima and Sentra in North America

Nissan said today that it may halt production of its vehicles in Tennessee and Mexico because of a parts shortage from Hitachi Ltd.

The company has not yet decided to stop production as of now, Toshiyuki Shiga, Nissan’s chief operating officer told Automotive News. If production does come to a halt, it could mean a loss of 15,000 vehicles. Production in Japan will stop on July 14 to July 16 because of the parts delay.

The part in question is an engine control unit that wasn’t delivered on time. The supplier said that integrated circuits needed were not available at the time.

"We’re working around the clock to try and minimize any inconvenience to our customers," Shiga said at the launch of the fourth-generation March compact car.

"For now, we’re still gauging when and whether we would need to halt production in the United States."

If Nissan do decide to stop production, the first models affected might be the Altima and the Sentra.

Nissan Develops Gas Pedal Safety Feature

Nissan Develops Gas Pedal Safety Feature

A new safety feature being developed by Nissan Motor Co. causes a car’s gas pedal to lift by itself to alert the driver of a possible collision.
That new technology, shown to reporters this week, combines radar sensors and a computer system to judge a car’s speed and the distance to the vehicle in front.
When the car senses a possible head-on crash, the gas pedal automatically rises against the driver’s foot as a signal to step on the brake.
If sensors detect a possible collision ahead, (...)
