2019 Nissan Altima becomes the Altimate AWD by adding tracks

It joins a long line of winterized Nissans

For its redesign, the 2019 Nissan Altima got the option of all-wheel drive on its naturally aspirated variant. The addition was surely welcome to customers and dealers in northern states, but even more so in Canada where all Altimas there get the feature as standard equipment. So it's not surprising that Nissan of Canada decided to highlight it by putting tracks on an all-wheel-drive Altima.

A shop in Quebec called Motorsports in Action built the car. The car was lifted three inches between subframe and suspension modifications. The shop put the car on Dominator tracks from American Track Truck and created custom fender flares that add 14 inches of width to the body. It has a clever nickname, too: Altimate AWD. This isn't the first tracked Nissan, though. The company also created a Murano, Rogue and Pathfinder with tracks a few years ago.

Our hearts still lie with the most absurd of Nissan's tracked vehicles, the 370Zki. Being rear-drive, Nissan only put tracks on the back, and then put skis on the front. To add to the ridiculousness, they used a convertible 370Z, because what you want in the snow is no roof. But we're still glad to see the wild Altima, and wonder what the company might do next. Oh! How about a tracked GT-R?
