Nissan on stand and track at Goodwood
7 June 2006

Nissan's range of temptations at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed (7-9 July) will include 345bhp turbocharged Murano and 374bhp supercharged 350Z concepts.

Out on the track will be the 350Z that won the 2004 Japanese SuperGT series and the 1999 BTCC Primera, the second fastest car up the hill last year.

The Murano GT-C is a concept which has been refined by Nissan GB, who have replaced its 18-inch wheels with 22-inch items and added a rear spoiler. Nissan's European Technical Centre, based in Bedfordshire, is responsible for the uprated engine.

That Centre is also responsible for the supercharged 350Z GTS concept. They have uprated the brake pads and discs and retuned the suspension.

Nissan says of the two concepts that 'if the press and public approve, they could be available in the not so distant future.'

The Nissan stand will also feature a Micra 160SR, a pink Micra C+C and the Navara, Patrol, Pathfinder and X-Trail will be available to drive on Goodwood's off-road course.
