    Video: Second trailer for The Driver finally speeds into action

    Everyone's got their favorite superheroes, and their reasons for liking them. Ours drive cool cars. Comic-book-turned-big-screen do-gooders like Batman (and his mild-mannered alter-ego Bruce Wayne) and Iron Man (Tony Stark). That's just one of the reasons we're stoked for The Driver. The ...

    Video: Drag-off: Bugatti Veyron vs. tuned Nissan GT-R

    The Nissan GT-R has earned itself a hard-won reputation as a giant slayer. The relatively low-buck supercar can embarrass more expensive hardware right out of the box.

    Official: Nissan rolls out new Track Pack for GT-R

    The Nissan GT-R has become something of a cult favorite for a number of types of enthusiasts: supercar slayers, import tuners, and especially track-day junkies.

    Exclusive: Juke R might be awesome, but Nissan HQ ain't happy [w/video]

    The Nissan Juke R might be one of the company's most impressive engineering efforts in recent memory, but the skunkworks team behind it has apparently ruffled more than a few feathers with Nissan execs in Japan. The UK team behind the Juke R apparently didn't seek approval from Nissan's ...

    Video: Nissan Juke-R clears its throat for the first time

    The end of the Nissan Juke-R build has come and gone. The vehicle is done. Only a lucky few were there when the 485-horsepower twin-turbo V6 borrowed from a Nissan GT-R cleared its throat for the first time. The thrills and high-fives, that wave of adrenaline that buoys dog-tired men, and the ...

    Video: Nissan builds the body in seventh Juke-R clip

    Sure, the idea behind the Nissan Juke-R project was to squeeze a GT-R powertrain into a Juke bodyshell. But you didn't think they'd just leave the exterior styling alone to look like a stock example of the little five-door, did you? Of course not. In the seventh installment of the Juke-R's ...

    Los Angeles: 2013 Nissan GT-R is more of a great thing

    The 2013 Nissan GT-R has officially bowed at the 2011 LA Auto Show. The latest interpretation of Japan's premier supercar may look the same, but it's the most powerful to date, with a full 15 additional horsepower over the 2012 model. That bumps the final figure up to 545 hp and 463 pound-feet of ...

    The plot thickens around the latest Nissan GT-R Nürburgring video. As you may have heard, a clip showing the supercar lapping Green Hell in 7:21 flat has hit YouTube. The only problem is that Nissan is claiming that the company doesn't know a thing about it. According to The Truth About ...

    Official: Nissan releases updated 542hp GT-R overseas [w/video]

    There's no question that Nissan has done some radically impressive things with its GT-R, proving beyond the shred of a doubt that Japan's mainstream automakers can stick it to Europe's elite.

    Video: Nissan highlights unique challenges of Juke-R's drivetrain

    Most all-wheel-drive vehicles – say, a mass-market crossover like the Nissan Juke, for example – are fairly straightforward in their setup. With the engine and transmission up front, one driveshaft goes to the front wheels and another to the back. But that's not always the case with ...

    Video: Nissan Juke-R web build continues

    When Nissan UK announced that the company planned to build a design study using the body of a Juke and the running gear of GT-R, we knew the automaker's engineers had some serious work cut out for them.

    Video: 2012 Nissan GT-R is the scariest police car ever

    An unnamed Northern Virginia police agency has apparently scored itself a Nissan GT-R to use as a pursuit vehicle. Call it the last of the V6 Interceptors.

    Official: 520-hp Nissan Juke-R takes shape [w/video]

    It's hard not to love Nissan right now. The company has shown more testicular fortitude over the past 12 months than nearly every other mainstream automaker combined with additions like the Murano Crosscabriolet and the Nissan Juke. You may not love either vehicle's bizarre styling, and you may ...

    Rumormill: Next Nissan GT-R may produce up to 570 hp

    The Nissan GT-R is an impressive piece of machinery on a number of levels, but perhaps most astounding is the fact that it's performance continues to improve year over year. If the rumors kicking around NAGTROC forums are to be believed, that trend will continue for the 2013 model. Nissan ...

    Official: Nissan debuts new GT3-spec Nismo GT-R

    The Nissan GT-R is no stranger to motorsports.

    Another dealership refusing to honor eBay Motors sale [UPDATE 2]

    Another day, another story of a dealership refusing to honor an eBay Motors transaction. (It seems these tales pop up at least once each quarter.)

    Report: Infiniti GT-R back on the table?

    When Japanese automakers crank out a supercar, it is, first of all, a rare occasion. And it usually wears the badge of its respective luxury division. Toyota's is the Lexus LFA. Honda's was the Acura NSX (at least here in the States). But not Nissan. That company's supercar – the GT-R ...

    Video: Nissan GT-R Switzer R850 lines up against Suzuki GSX1300R

    We're not touching the car vs. bike argument this time around. Instead, we're just going to sit back, relax, and be glad people had their video cameras pointed in the general direction of the Suzuki GSX1300R (known better as the Hayabusa) and the Nissan GT-R Switzer R850 as they lined up against ...
