It wasn't exactly NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon scaring the bejesus out of an unsuspecting car salesman in a Pepsi-sponsored prank, but the racetrack laps that our friends over at Translogic featured of the Nissan Leaf-based Nismo racer certainly look plenty fun, especially for the enthusiastic driver.

Nissan took the wraps off its Leaf Nismo RC Concept at the New York Auto Show more than two years ago. As inferred, the vehicle shares many of its pure-EV components with the production Leaf currently sitting in your dealer's showroom. But don't assume the concept is a placid, family friendly, four-place, front-wheel-drive plug-in for grabbing groceries - the RC (as in "Racing Challenge") is a purpose-built, two-seat, rear-wheel-drive prototype race car tuned for the short track.
