Nissan Leaf NISMO RC – Click above to watch video after the jump

The name on the back panel, just under the massive adjustable rear wing, says Nissan Leaf. The powertrain is an 100 percent zero emission advanced lithium-ion battery design, just like the one found on the world's first affordable mass market electric vehicle. There is a discernible family resemblance in the body, too, but that is where the similarities between the production Nissan Leaf and the Nissan Leaf NISMO RC end. The NISMO RC Leaf is missing rear doors, rear seat, trunk, audio system, navigation, carpeting or other amenities, for example. As indicted by the "RC" – which stands for Racing Competition – this new electric vehicle, which made its world debut at the 2011 New York Auto Show, is purpose-built to bring new meaning to the term "Racing Green." At the show, we just got to see the car on the stand, but you can hit the jump to catch the Nissan Leaf NISMO RC in action. Hat tip to Stephen!
