Nissan LEAF NISMO RC

At the 2011 New York Auto Show, Nissan unveiled the new Nissan LEAF NISMO RC, a racing LEAF that was stripped of rear door, rear seat, trunk, audio system, navigation, carpeting and other things but still keeps its 100 percent zero-emission advanced lithium-ion battery design.

Nissan recently took the LEAF NISMO RC to the Sodegaura Forest Raceway to give it a little shakedown.

You can check out the video of the whole process after the jump.

Refresher: Power for the Nissan Leaf NISMO RC comes from a lithium-ion battery composed of 48 compact modules and a high-response 80kW AC synchronous motor that generates 107-hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. 80 percent charge can be reached in 30 minutes using a quick charging port (just like the regular Leaf). 0 to 62 mph comes in 6.85 seconds with a top speed of 93 mph.
