The performance of the car has been significantly enhanced by the 3.8 litre twin turbo-charged V6 changing from 478bhp to 523bhp. But Nissan have managed to keep themselves one set ahead of the game and keep the emissions of the vehicle lower than the previous less powerful model.

The emissions shift from 295g/km to 279g/km, although still at a rather high level they are significantly lower.

Nissan have included tweaks to the suspension, brakes, bumper and daytime running lights. They have also reduced the drag of the car from 0.27 to 0.26Cd. Nissan will debut the car which is heavily priced at £69,950, £10,000 more than the current model and will be available in six different body colors.

This powerful new car will be able to move from 0-60mph in 3.4, which considering the vehicle weighs 1800kg.
