Nissan has taken the wraps off the brand new racing car that will be used for next year’s Australian Supercars Championship. No, it’s not the GT-R, it the 2013 Altima Supercar V8 Supercar.

The Altima racer is a handsome looking brute in red and black, featuring “Nissan”, “Altima” and “Nismo” logos.

The car is powered by a race-tuned version of Nissan's VK56 V8 engine that powers the Nissan Titan, Armada and Pathfinder, as well as the Infiniti QX. Nismo had to reduce the displacement of the engine from 5.6-liters to 5.0-liters.

“This is a proud day for Nissan and a significant occasion for the sport of V8 Supercars,” said Nissan Australia Managing Director and CEO William F Peffer Jr. “Unveiling our Nissan Altima V8 Supercar, the first new V8 Supercar model in two decades, brings Nissan’s special brand of ‘Innovation and Excitement’ to the V8 Supercars Championship.”

“This is the proudest day in the relatively short history of our team, as well as one of the most significant days in recent times for the sport of V8 Supercars,” said Todd Kelly. “Our team has done a tremendous job to design and build an all-new V8 Supercar, including a new engine, in roughly nine months. The Nissan Altima V8 Supercar really is like no other V8 Supercar. Not only does it look spectacular but its unique features and aggressive design ensure that Nissan Motorsport will stand out from the rest of the field.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
