To spend the hours, the platform for electric cars continues to increase, even in the world of racing cars, in a clear example of what many had anticipated, with a 2012 that would be a turning point, and with a wide variety of models and designs.

On this occasion, this is given with the presentation of the new nissan leaf nismo rc, which is nothing more than an adaptation of the much-touted nissan leaf but to be able to lead the roads of different categories in the world of motor racingin case of being accepted by any team in particular.
It has been made entirely using carbon fiber among the materials, with a rear-wheel drive and a noticeable change in weight, a 40% lower than the version of series, standing then at some 938 kilograms, not bad for a conversion.
As for its performance, can accelerate from 0 to 100 in 6.8 seconds and has a top speed of 150 kilometres per hour, not bad for an electric car of this type, although its weak point is in the autonomyestimated at about 20 minutes of race.

It will be presented in the New York automobile show which will begin on April 20, and will have its official debut in some races organised by the FIA, but only to display mode.
