If you’re a fan of NISMO like those of us here at Rothrock Nissan, you’ll be excited to hear they’re celebrating their 30-year anniversary. Ready? All together now: Happy Birthday to you, Ha– well, maybe a song is a bit much.
For NISMO’s 30-year anniversary, Nissan celebrated with a week of events, including motorsport events in the US and Europe.
For those of you unfamiliar with NISMO, it’s the performance and motorsport division of Nissan. Since 1984, NISMO has created such vehicles as the Skyline GT-R and S14 Silvia 270R, as well as tuning-kits to be equipped with the V35 Skyline and Z33 Fairlady, among others. NISMO is also associated with quality parts designed to increase performance and enhance your car to near-racing standards.
According to TheAutoChannel, NISMO President Shoichi Miyatani said, “Since the company’s founding 30 years ago, everyone has diligently worked together to build up our success and performance on the race track. As a result of the passion and achievements that come about from this success, ‘NISMO’ has now become a symbol of Nissan performance.”
On Sept. 22 and 23 as part of NISMO’s 30-year anniversary, Nissan hosted the Nürburgring Experience, a special track event at the Nürburgring in southwest Germany for its loyal customers. Not only did these customers get a chance to drive on parts of the world-famous track, they also experienced a preview of the future of NISMO road cars. Naturally, we’re a little bit jealous here at Rothrock Nissan.
