Nissan Sentra Nismo concept gets LA motor show debut

LA motor show 2013: Nissan Sentra Nismo concept

Nissan Sentra Nismo concept unveiled at LA motor show, US-only sports saloon gains 240bhp 1.8-litre turbo petrol four-pot engine.

Nissan’s Sentra Nismo concept has made its debut at the LA motor show.

The performance tuning arm of the Japanese car firm has upped the ante on the standard Sentra, discarding the 130bhp 1.8-litre inline four cylinder unit and using the turbocharged 1.8-litre four-pot motor that powers the Nissan Juke Nismo RS. It develops 240bhp in this form.

The engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential, while the standard suspension has been fettled with Nismo performance springs and shocks. The Sentra Nismo is endowed with performance tyres and a Brembo brake package.

Exterior modifications include a deeper front fascia, red accents on the lower side sills, dual exhaust tailpipes and rear diffuser.
