Nissan Leaf Nismo RC 2011

Nissan Leaf Nismo RC 2011 is Nissan's first ever zero emission racing spec production vehicle that was unveiled at the New York Auto Show 2011. On June 11-12,  The Leaf Nismo RC 2011 participated at the Le Mans VERS Le Futur (Le Man Toward the future) along with many other electric cars like Audi eTron SpyderPeugeot EX1, Venturi Volage.

Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. and Nissan Motorsports International Co., Ltd. today announced that Nissan will demonstrate the NISSAN LEAF™ NISMO RC at LE MANS VERS LE FUTUR, a support event for the 79th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which takes place June 11-12.

The NISSAN LEAF™ NISMO RC is a purpose-built racecar based on the Nissan LEAF, the first all-electric production vehicle in the world. The NISSAN LEAF™ NISMO RC, the first-ever zero emission racing spec production vehicle, was unveiled at the 2011 New York International Auto Show in April and garnered considerable consumer attention throughout the show.

Two demonstration runs by the NISSAN LEAF™ NISMO RC are scheduled: - the first at 21:15 on Thursday, June 9th and the second at 12:10 on Saturday, June 11th local time.

The 24 Hours of Le Mans is the world's most renowned endurance race and is held on the Circuit de la Sarthe, near the town of Le Mans, 200 kilometers west of Paris. It is considered the toughest endurance event in the world and for many car manufacturers, doing battle at Le Mans is considered a badge of honor.

This year Nissan/NISMO-powered LMP2 cars will participate in the race. Lucas Ordonez, winner of the first GT Academy, will drive the Signatech Nissan, one of the LMP2 cars.
