Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

Nissan has gone a bit mental, albeit in the good way. They’ve finally realized that performance oriented small cars like the Micra (sold as Nissan March in Thailand and Japan) and the Sunny (Almera/Versa) are exactly what the world needs at this moment and thanks to their in-house tuning, NISMO, and their general experience in motorsports, they can do a pretty good job.

After announcing the Nissan Sunny NISMO for Malaysia, we now hear about the Nissan Micra/March NISMO that is due to go on sale in Japan very soon.

The Micra NISMO gets a “motorsports inspired aerodynamics design” according to Nissan. They even say that the aero of the Micra has been ‘honed’ through the GT-R’s involvement in the Super GT series. Thanks to all this scientific stuff, the Micra NISMO achieves zero-lift and as a result the small car is expected to stick on the road like chewing gum.

How did they do this?

The front bumper is pretty special with the edge of the center part raised to ‘catch the wind’ and as a result generate downforce. A special roof spoiler with ‘optimized length and angle’ and a specially designed rear bumper reduce air resistance.

Plus, you also get special NISMO badges all around which you can show your friends and make them jealous!
