click for a gallery of the Altima hybrid race car

Before the doors officially opened at the LA Auto Show this morning, we spotted the Nissan Altima Hot Rod, our old friend from SEMA. With nothing much to do but awit for the doors to open, we snapped a few shots and marveled at the slick leaf-shaped dual exhaust pipes. The leaf logos emblazoned in the hood were another not-so-subtle touch to let everyone who sees this car know that it's green (just look at the paint job). Ready for E85 and with a solar panel on the roof, this is one green race car. More details here.

      I dont believe that "HOT ROD", "HYBRID" and "NISSAN" should be in the same sentence together. Hot Rod refers to American Muscle which hybrid should not be a part of. Cool car anyway. And I agree... E85 isnt green and isnt even worth the effort.

      E85 isn't green. We need to stop propagating the idea that it is.

        I'm not saying that E85 is the answer, but I will say that it gets a bum rap on sites like this. E85 has its issues, but so does every single other alternative for propelling your car.

      That exhaust pipe makes me want to vomit. I'm sure it'll look better once it's rusted and covered in soot.

      Whaha! That Exhaustpipe is great!!

        I think it looks like greenwashing, an exhaust pipe is never green (well unless its a hydrogen car, but even then, extra water vapor isn't a GOOD thing)
