It’s not every day you get a call from someone like Nissan South Africa to help on building showcase concept cars. The project involved 2 teams at Nissan working to see who could come up with the best project and the car to do was the Nissan Tida also known as the Nissan Versa in US and other overseas markets.
The small car market tuning and mini hot hatch segment is on the increase and the fact the large car manufacturers like Nissan are seeing this means that the rest of the tuning industry is definitely onto something and could be the new hit in the tuning and automotive industry.
Specs on the cars are rather vast with one being turbo’d and the other running a very strong naturally aspirated engine after a suggestion made by us to use the very well know and strong nissan SR20VVL motor.
Full specs and pictures of the VVL project to be added soon , but here is a few pics and some specs to get it started.
A BIG thank you to Nissan South Africa for including us in on these project cars.
