Default Nissanís Nasty V-8 Supercar Breaks Cover

When muscle car manufacturers come to mind, Nissan simply isnít part of the conversation. They arenít in the same galaxy with traditional offerings from Dodge, Ford or General Motors, but thanks to an ambitious program afoot in Australia, the Japanese marque hopes to shift its image from a maker of fine econoboxes to architects of ground-pounding nastiness.

In partnership with the Kelly Racing V-8 Supercars team, Nissan, along with team owners/drivers Rick and Todd Kelly, will field four purpose-built Altimas in the 2013 V-8 championship. Based on the first images of the 4-door, 650 hp 5.0-liter V-8-powered machine in action, look for plenty of speed and swagger to be unleashed next year when the series makes its first Stateside visit at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX.
