Caruso and Moffat, who will be joining existing drivers Todd and Rich Kelly, will be racing the Norton 360 Symantec-supporter Nissan Altima's, while the other two teams will bear the Jack Daniel colors that made them notorious.

Nissan, who returns to Australian Touring Car racing as a factory team after 21 years, is hoping to gather popularity for the Altima Model with the help of V8 Supercars ahead of the vehicles official release in late 2013.

“Nissan has a raft of new models soon to be released in Australia, including the all-new Altima sedan. The 2013 V8 Supercar Championship is an important part of the Nissan Altmia’s marketing strategy. Australian new car buyers will have an entire year to get to know the Altima name and shape before it goes on sale later this year,” said Nissan Australia CEO William Peffer Jr.

In case you missed it, Holden also revealed their 2013 VF Commodore V8 Supercars Championship vehicle, that promises to be a strong contender for this year's crown.
