2012 Nissan GT-R
Nissan’s stands will be one of the star attractions at this November’s 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show, with three world premieres scheduled to take place, each as exciting and groundbreaking as the next. The lineup will include a new sedan concept dubbed the Ellure, a radical convertible version of the Murano crossover and the facelifted 2012 Nissan GT-R
, which we saw yesterday.
The facelifted GT-R is no longer a secret, with Nissan already confirming that the car will go on sale in the U.S. next February. The latest version of the Japanese giant killer comes with a host of udpates including aerodynamic and handling upgrades, as well as a more powerful and more fuel efficient drivetrain.
In Japan Nissan is offering two additional GT-R models, the race track only Club Track edition and luxury-oriented EGOIST, however, there’s still no word whether either of these models will be offered in the U.S. Expect more details following the facelifted GT-R’s debut in Los Angeles this November.
While the 2012 Nissan GT-R is no big surprise, the new Murano convertible certainly will be. This model has long been rumored on the web, and our sources inside Nissan say it's more than just a rumor. It may not make it to production--that will likely hinge heavily on its public reception at the show--but it's a project the company has been working hard on for some time now.
Finally, Nissan will also show the Ellure sedan concept. The only official comment is that the Ellure concept represents a "dramatic new-value sedan exploration". Expect it to preview a new affordable sedan model Nissan is planning, possibly with some form of hybrid or full electric drive.
The 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show kicks off on November 17.
