Nissan Rogue (2017)
The famous Nissan Rogue currently comprises the most extensive variety of state-of-the-art technology peculiarities than previously. In particular, such earlier technologies as Blind Spot Warning using radar and Rear Cross Traffic Alert System have been included in the list of the former safety features of Nissan.
Two recently introduced complementary Safety Shield features represent Intelligent Cruise Control and system detecting possible forward obstacles. Intelligent Cruise Control operates by means of radar with the aim of keeping a required distance between the Nissan Rogue and the other auto in front of it.
Both systems ensure warnings on a screen in the form of sound and visual messages in order to caution a driver about a possible collision with the auto ahead and assists in decreasing speed if required. In the case of inevitable collision the system is capable of involving the brakes to support diminishing the speed along with the degree of crash severity. Besides, the equipment can contribute to either preventing collisions with pedestrians ahead with the help of a system using camera for detecting human silhouettes.
Nissan GT-R Nismo
The 2017 Nissan GT-R NISMO made its debut at the famous Nürburgring race course, known as the one of the longest and most challenging race tracks in the world. This is also the place where the Nissan GT-R's potent performance was honed, tuned and developed.
Like the standard model, the GT-R NISMO's front end features a freshened face that's highlighted by a new bumper. And to help cool the car's high-output engine, the dark chrome V-motion grille has been enlarged to collect more air, without diminishing the car's aerodynamic performance. A new significantly reinforced hood avoids deformation at extremely high speeds, allowing it to keep its aerodynamic shape at all times. But unlike the standard model, the front bumpers of the GT-R NISMO are made of carbon fibre, crafted with TAKUMI-like precision where layers of carbon-fibre sheets are carefully overlapped to achieve the ideal amount of stiffness. The canards have been designed to improve airflow around the vehicle and generate a high level of downforce, while at the same time, direct air around the wheelhouse to improve the aerodynamics. Overall, the car's new shape generates more downforce than any other Nissan production car to date, which in turn results in exceptional high-speed stability.
The new GT-R NISMO is also the benefactor of the 2017 GT-R's refreshed interior, whose cabin possesses a more upscale feel than ever before. The redesigned dashboard, steering wheel and center armrest are covered with high-quality Alcantara® leather. The centre dash layout has been improved and simplified via integrated navigation and audio controls (reducing the number of switches from 27 in the previous model to only 11) and an enlarged 8-inch touch-panel monitor that features large icons on the display screen make it simple to use. A new Display command control on the carbon-fibre center console allows easy operation without having to touch the monitor; a feature that comes in handy when traveling at high speed. Unique to the GT-R NISMO are the leather-appointed Recaro® carbon bucket seats with red Alcantara inserts.

Nissan Skyline GT-R V-spec II
The Nissan Skyline GT-R is an iconic Japanese sports coupe in the Nissan Skyline range. Dubbed "Godzilla" by Wheels magazine in Australia when released there in 1989, it was rated by many motoring magazines, including the well-respected Wheels, as providing performance and handling equal or superior to that of European icons like the Porsche 911 and the Ferrari Testarossa, at a considerably lower price. The Skyline's home-market competitors have included the Honda NSX, Toyota Supra, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, Subaru Impreza WRX STi, and Mazda RX-7.
History of the brand
The Skyline name originated with the Prince automobile company which developed and sold the Skyline line of sedans before merging with Nissan-Datsun. The earliest predecessor of the GT-R, the S54 2000 GT-B, came second in its first race in 1964 to the purpose-built Porsche 904 GTS race car. The next development of the GT-R, the 4-door PGC10 2000 GT-R , later to be superceeded by the 2-door KPGC10 version, scored 33 victories in the one and a half years it raced and by the time it attempted its 50th consecutive win, its run was ended by a Mazda Savanna RX-3. The car took 54 victories by the time it was discontinued in 1972. The last of the original GT-Rs, the KPGC110 2000GT-R, used an unchanged S20 160 hp (120 kW) inline-6 engine from the earlier 2000 GT-R and only sold 197 units due to the worldwide energy crisis. This model was the only GT-R to never participate in a race despite only having one built which now resides in Nissan's former factory turned storage unit for historical cars in Zuma.
The Skyline model continued into the 1990s when it became popular largely because it remained rear wheel drive, while most other manufacturers' models were front wheel drive (which had certain complexities inherent in achieving high performance in power or handling when compared to a rear-wheel drive car).
