Nissan is one of the largest auto manufacturers in the world, featuring a wide range of vehicles that offer economy, durability, performance and style. Nissan features a wealth of automotive designs and packages that feature upgrades including larger engines, pin stripe, spoiler, wing, interior design and other advances to attract car buyers. For over a century, Nissan has been producing cars and trucks, making a name for themselves on the automotive scene. The origins of Nissan go back to the formation of the Kwaishinsha Motor Car Works in 1911. Their first model, the DAT, was released in 1914 as the First World War began. Over the next two decades, ownership of the automotive plant changed until the 1930s with it became “Datsun” and Nissan took the plant over.
Nissan was a very large conglomerate of 74 different firms with Datsun manufacturing the vehicles. In 1934, Nissan Motor Co. was formed out of this conglomerate and began producing all types of vehicles, trucks, aircraft and engines for the Japanese military. After World War 2 ended, Nissan began expanding their market around the world, introducing the Austin Stevens vehicles to clients in Britain and their Datsun line as well. The oil crisis of 1973 helped Nissan expand their line of economy cars to the US and Europe which in turn helped build manufacturing plants in the US and other countries as well. Today, Nissan is well established with auto plants around the world producing all types of vehicles, including many versions of the following cars; GT-R (GTR) R35, 350Z Z33, 370Z Z34.
Impact of Carbon Fiber on Nissan
One of the most noted advances in the automotive industry over the past decade is the introduction of Nissan Accessories and Parts in the carbon fiber auto technology. Carbon fiber automotive and aftermarket parts that feature twill weave are generally twice as strong as steel, yet weigh less than 1/4th as much. Carbon fiber is also more impact resistant as well. What follows are some of the carbon fiber parts available for Nissan and other types of vehicles; air Scoop Duct, Air Intake Box Scoop, Eye Lids & Eyebrows, Mirror Covers Shells, Interior Dash Panel, Interior Door Panel, Door Pillar Panels, Trunk Spoiler, Rear Spoiler, Rear Wing, Engine Bay Cover, Rear Bumper Diffuser, and many more. The style, power, quality and performance of Nissan vehicles is present in every type of car and truck that they produce. The future of Nissan looks quite promising as they expand their line of vehicles to meet the needs of consumers.
Nissan GT-R Edition
One vehicle that is making a big splash in Japan is the new 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition, a souped-up, fast and versatile sports car that is certainly turning heads among those anticipating its release. A powerful contrast to the gas-friendly Versas models Nissan has been pushing. The GT-R is a coupe that exudes power and performance in a small, sports coupe. Although a little pricey compared to the immediate competition, such as the Chevy Camaro ZL1, the Nissan GT-R offers plenty of features that will certainly attract those who have a need for speed and performance.
Advances for the 2014 GT-R Track Edition
The GT-R is certainly a well-known edition to the Nissan line having been introduced back in 2009. However, the new Track Edition offers some interesting changes and upgrades from previous models. No longer featured are the “Mini-Me” rear seats. Instead, a pair of quilted, fabric-covered bins rest in its place. Other new features include the following; Front & Rear Brake-Cooling Air Channel, Front & Rear Spoilers,Improved Springs, Modified Bilsteins, New Fabric Covered Front Seats, and Six-Spoke RAYS Forged-Aluminum Wheels.
The new front and rear spoilers are fashioned from carbon fiber to increase impact resistance and lower the overall weight of the vehicle. However, the horsepower, gearing, tires and torque remain the same from the previous models and the engine bay remains the same general size. So, does this new Track Edition meet and exceed the value of its price?
The Addition of New Carbon Fiber Parts
One of the most interesting new additions is carbon fiber technology which has created stronger, yet lighter weight parts for this vehicle. Some of the new carbon fiber parts which will be available on the new GT-R Track Edition include the following; Side Fender Grille, Top Hood Vents Scoop, Interior Dash Panels Covere, Rear Bumper Diffuser Lip, Side Skirt Kick Panel, Side View Door Mirror, and Rear Boot Trunk Spoiler. These new additions will make the GT-R Track Edition lighter, thus providing more power, speed, handling and overall performance.
The Speed of the GT-R Track Edition
Testing has shown that this new model can race from 0 to 60 mph in just under 3 seconds, over a full second better than its Camaro ZL1 counterpart. Plus, it is a measurable improvement from last years GT-R model as well. Boasting 545 hp, all-wheel drive, six-speed dual-clutch transmission, limited slip differential, and an almost 50/50 front-to-rear weight balance, the new GT-R Track Edition is certainly one of the most impressive of the new line of releases for next year. The lightning-quick shifting, incredible acceleration and overall speed and handling make this one of the most exciting new vehicles to own. In addition, the Track Edition includes new brake-cooling ducts which correct one of the issues from previous models and allow the brakes to last longer without any dip in performance.
For those who are interested in keeping up with the cutting edge of technology, the new 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition is certainly one of the best models in that line.
The Nissan 350Z is a two-seat sports car that was manufactured from 2002 to 2009. Known as the Nissan 'Fairlady' Z Z33 in Japan, this particular model debuted as a coupe and then later expanded into the roadster version the following year. Since its development, the Nissan 350Z coupe has developed five different versions; Coupe or Base Model, Enthusiast, Performance, Touring, and Trac. While the roadster version of the vehicle only branched out into the Enthusiast and Touring trim levels.
History of the Nissan 350Z
The Nissan 350Z initially wasn’t expected to be developed, at least in its current form. The first design, the Nissan 240Z which was produced for the Detroit Auto Show in 1998, was considered too underpowered and “retro” for the taste of the car company. So they went back to the drawing board and in 2002 the Z concept car was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show yet again. This time, the design was a hit and with a couple of minor changes the vehicle became the 350Z. With a front to mid engine and rear wheel drive, this two seat version has the typical “long hood” that many earlier versions of the Nissan 350Z featured. The exterior design also boasts the sloping “fastback” style roof, the high waistline and bulging fenders. In contrast, the interior design is somewhat straightforward with brushed aluminum highlights. While there is no glove compartment box, there are plenty of storage areas between the two seats.
It is the engine however that has garnered the most attention for the Nissan 350Z. Boasting a whopping 287hp, the 350Z is in the class of power vehicles that generally cost twice as much, if not more. The 6200 rpm is certainly quite powerful for this vehicle and it creates excitement just to drive it on the test track. With all of its features combined, its little wonder that the Nissan 350Z was a standout hit, appealing to those who love performance cars without having to shell out a great deal of money. While the overall style hints at the “retro” feel, the greater truth is that the Nissan 350Z has struck a cord with modern drivers thanks to its advancements. In addition to the aluminum frame, the Nissan 350Z has benefited from having access to lightweight carbon fiber automotive parts.
Nissan 350Z & Carbon Fiber Technology
As with many vehicles over the past decade, the Nissan 350Z has benefited from the advancement of carbon fiber technology. Thousands of strands of carbon are bonded together in a twill weave pattern to create carbon fiber or CF automotive parts that are more than twice as strong as steel, have greater impact resistance, yet weigh less than 1/4th the amount. Scopione carbon fiber automotive parts are available for the Nissan 350Z series as well as many other makes and models of automobiles and motorcycles. You can go through the online catalog of aftermarket parts or contact the friendly, courteous staff at Scopione to find the carbon fiber auto part you need for your Nissan 350Z or many other vehicles and motorcycles.
