Nissan is at the forefront of automotive and racing technologies. Mixing the two always creates plenty of interest.
At the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide the Japanese car giant will stage a challenge with a difference. A speed comparison between a Altima V8 Supercar road version of the GT-R Sportscar and an all-electrical driven racecar - the Leaf Nismo RC.
The zero-emission, purpose-built racing machine is powered by an electric motor with revolutionary lithium-ion batteries, meaning no fuel tank, no tail pipe and ironically for driver Rick Kelly very little noise.

Driving in the ‘Nissan Time Attack’ is a coup for the Clipsal 500, with the car having made only select appearances since its unveil at the New York Auto Show in 2011. It has lapped circuits such as Le Mans in France and Goodwood in the UK.

The GT-R will be driven by Samantha Zanotto - while Michael Caruso will be at the wheel of his regular Norton Nissan Altima V8 Supercar.

Despite the fact that fans will hardly hear this car glide by, the LEAF Nismo RC is a pure race car, with its three-piece body manufactured from carbon fibre. The shape and silhouette of the car is low and wide, and the adjustable rear wing is designed to create significant downforce, keeping the car stable and glued to the track.
