Years ago, Jann Mardenborough went from ordinary gamer to legendary racer after he entered the Nissan GT Academy. The Nissan GT Academy is an intense competition organized by the lead automotive brand and Sony. The competition’s main prize was a huge opportunity to become a Nissan factory driver. What was meant to be a one-year program ended up occurring from 2008 until 2016. Though it is no longer running, as you can see, the Nissan GT Academy has left its mark on the world, inspiring an epic cinematic retelling of the monumental event.
The intensely high-powered Nissan performance models are at the core of the Nissan GT Academy. The Nissan Z® Performance is one of the top performance models from the brand, and we’ve got more on the way to the dealership! It harnesses a substantial 400 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque. The aerodynamic Nissan GT-R® is another high-powered legend, boasting heart-racing 565 horsepower and 467 lb.-ft. of torque. Built to conquer, the Nissan TITAN PRO-4X® takes things to the extremes with unbelievable 4×4 capabilities and advanced off-road technology. Lastly, the Nissan Altima VC-Turbo changes the game with its 4-cylinder engine and 248 horsepower. Want to learn more about Nissan’s high-powered performance models? Speak with our team today!
