Add the NISMO RS to “Juke”
— ‘Juke’ vertex, delivers class-leading performance –- (Translated from Japanese)
Adds new grade NISMO RS ‘Juke’ 11, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Nishi-Ku, Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, President: Carlos Ghosn), 26 released into nationwide announced.
NISMO brand lineup shows spread to the SUV and sports car March NISMO, notes NISMO, “fairlady Z NISMO’, and NISSAN gt-r NISMO, the compact car.
This time, more performance in July of this year the minor ‘Juke’ customers to seek adds new grades towards the heights of the lineup of “Juke” NISMO RS, released. NISMO RS’s class in the higher engine output from the traditional ‘Juke NISMO”* 1Mass production car tuned NISMO only realized the top-level output, as well-only tuning for improved braking performance, improved body stiffness, suspension and electric-p power ring, as well as high performance buck sheet stiffness and hold with RECARO sports seats in also.
NISMO RS features are as follows.
1 high-performance boasts a class-leading horsepower and torque
Ropelescherkeld EGR on base cars of NISMO RS 16 GT FOUR* 2The NISMO RS only improved the maximum output of further improvements of the ECU settings with NISMO RS, whereas with improved fuel efficiency by adopting 1.6-litre direct injection turbo engine and did. And improve the durability of the connecting rod bearings, last strong torque at high rpm. To this, 8 has achieved suitable for fast manual mode with Xtronic CVT with paddle shifters to combine the heights of “Juke” driving pleasure.
○ dedicated braking system improved brake feel and fade resistance performance
And larger diameter front brake rotors, adopted a ventilated discs at the rear. Performance of the caliper and brake pad fade-resistant and also improved. This achieves high level brake feel of sport driving. Giving the red color symbolizes the caliper NISMO RS, we will evoke the joy of our own NISMO RS.
1 NISMO RS high output, than ran along the driver’s intention
By achieved even lightweight shape optimization and size up to 18 inches from the base car’s 17-inch aluminum wheels, Springs reduce the unsprung weight. Exercise performance and ride quality to achieve both. Underbody NISMO RS output for improved driving characteristics to match the suspension tuning and enjoy on the broader scene. Also, due to increased engine output torque vector features ALL MODE 4X4-i and optimal allocation of torque was increased for the NISMO RS, as driver’s cornering performance. In the goodness of the traditional “Juke” the winding road and at high speeds by vehicle speed-sensitive electric steering tuning firm achieves both think. These exclusive tuning achieves sporty piloting sense unique to NISMO RS.
1 effective body stiffness thought up not only with finished car manufacturers factory turn mass balance
By creating a strong body unleashes the potential of the engine, brakes, tires, suspension. And add a reinforced body parts in body Assembly phase in the Nissan oppama plant, increased body torsional stiffness. This precise and quick Steering response and firm texture of high ride comfort both in higher dimensions.
1 conduct a great aerotune by the air force’s latest
Received feedback from typical NISMO racing activities, adopt a more aerodynamic design. By improving downforce without control and air flow at high speed, air resistance (Cd value) to sacrifice the enhanced peace of mind when driving with a posture of the vehicle. To optimize downforce in the winding road and during adverse weather conditions the tire grip is improved.
1 realized could concentrate on sport driving special NISMO tuning RECARO sports seats
Due to higher output of vehicles, body strengthening and brake enhancements and improved sheet performance, Nissan and RECARO developed by NISMO tuning made RECARO sport seat has been adopted. RECARO seats boasts high level sheet stiffness and hold in the shell structure has undergone a special NISMO tuning based on.
