The Sentra NISMO Concept is an eye-catcher. We were surprised to see the automaker's tuning division's fingerprints on such an entry-level vehicle. True, the Sentra is fresh off a redesign but do they even have an SE-R version anymore? Among the Sentra NISMO Concept's many departures from a production 2014 Sentra are its race-inspired exterior with enhanced aerodynamic performance, NISMO-tuned suspension, steering and transmission, and engaging motorsports-style cockpit. And under the hood, the concept adapts a 1.8-liter direct injection turbocharged engine producing more than 240 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque, mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Yep, that's right. A factory turbo Sentra with as much power as the AP1 S2000. "Fans have asked that we bring back a high-performance Sentra straight from the factory, just like in generations past," said Nissan Vice President of Product Planning, Pierre Loing. "With NISMO, our in-house motorsports arm already producing versions of the 370Z NISMO, JUKE NISMO, JUKE NISMO RS and upcoming GT-R NISMO, we wanted to demonstrate where we could go in the future." Go already...the future is now!
