We’re not exactly fans of the Scrappage Scheme here, but we can see a degree of logic in it. But the system is too poorly conceived (and puts too big an onus on the car makers to match the taxpayers contribution) to be really effective. Yes, the Government put some conditions in place to stop […]
We’re starting to get real-world feedback now the first customer Nissan GT-Rs are in the wild in the UK. And it all seems extremely positive. Just about every owner we have spoken to is astonished at the performance. Everyone bought on the basis of the press coverage on the GT-R and no one really had […]
It’s no secret that every car maker on the planet is looking at what will and won’t work with eco-cars. From initially starting out as little runarounds, Hybrid and electric cars are now finding their way in to every level of car. We’ve recently told you about the Mercedes S400 Hybrid, and only the other […]
The Nissan Qashqai has been a big success for Nissan, and for the workforce in Sunderland. So much so that it has allowed Nissan to develop a sub-Qashqai model – the Nissan Qazana – which will secure employment prospects in the North East. But Nissan aren’t standing still with the Qashqai. They introduced the Qashqai+2 […]
Nissan set a blistering time round the Nurburgring last year, but yesterday they beat that time in a 2010 Nissan GT-R V-Spec by over a second.

The Nissan Qazana is an important car, not just for Nissan in this tough economic climate, but also for the workforce in Sunderland. The Qazana, unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month, is set to take the place of the Micra at Nissan’s Sunderland plant, safeguarding over 1,000 local jobs. And after the […]
Hard to know what to say! The Qazana is a huge deal for Nissan. And relatively speaking, an even bigger deal for the workforce in Sunderland. So they have to get this sub-Qashqai right, or Nissan will have big problems, and it’ll be like the end of mining in Sunderland in the ’80s again for […]
The Nissan GT-R has been a runaway success for Nissan. Incredible performance, unbelievable handling and a price point that makes every other supercar maker’s prices look ridiculous. But Nissan admits that the GT-R is a loss-maker, which is hardly a surprise. So what can they do to capitalise on the kudos surrounding the GT-R? The […]
We did a review of the Nissan GT-R recently, and found it to be quite simply the most incredible car, especially considering its bargain price. So what could be better? Well, Nissan thinks it has it with the new Nissan GT-R SpecV, which launches in Japan in February. The GT-R SpecV offers a slight increase […]
