Yip it was still work in progress. They just need to detune something they already use to comply with the new rules! Smile

What are the limitations for Bathurst? They obviously don't want a repeat of previous races when the skyline demolishes Holden/Ford

Looking forward to the new series indeed.
Don't think it will be the same as the old Nissan's, no 4wd or Turbo like last time

+1 even an AMG twin Turbo V8 with the sports package makes roughly 560bhp doesn't it? . . .
But yes I'm looking forward to all any other cars entering the competition

It's interesting that the Altima is only sold in North and South American markets though.

They are going to start selling that model in Australia "in the second half of 2013".
