Nissan Leaf transformed into NISMO RC super car, video shows speed

By Updated on

Have you ever wondered what it would look like if you took a bog standard Nissan Leaf motor and turned it into a full-out super car? Believe it or not, but that’s what we have to show you now with the introduction of the Nissan Leaf NISMO RC.

Development on the NISMO RC version of the Nissan Leaf has seemingly gone on off the radar, but a new video released this week has thrusted it back in to the limelight. For the first time, we can now show you the NISMO RC in action on a race track at the Sodegaura forest raceway in Japan.

You can clearly see that the vehicle is still in early development stages by it’s Mork and Mindy dashboard interface, but there’s no denying that the car definitely can handle well in a variety of weather conditions. It will be very interesting to see what the final model looks like, and how it fairs on the track against some of the top racing cars.

After testing the NISMO for the first time, Nissan now states that their aim is to improve on reducing costs for the next model. When we’ll see it though is a different matter. Check out the video below, courtesy of MotorAuthority and let us know what you think of it.
