This isn’t just a one-off concept never to be seen again, however. Following its debut in New York, the Leaf Nismo RC will serve as a rolling laboratory for the accelerated development of electric cars and aerodynamic systems, as well as a platform for the development of new green motorsports series.
The electric race vehicle will likely make a series of special demonstration appearances at various motorsports venues in 2011, with Nissan also exploring a pioneer zero emission competition spec series in future years.
