We are not sure of the logic behind this build but if NISMO is involved we’re paying attention. The NISMO Leaf Racing Concept (RC) is a serious take on hybrid motorsports. How serious? NISMO has converted the Leaf to rear drive, widened its track and fitted the chassis with carbon-fiber body panels. NISMO reports 0 to 62 mph acceleration clocks in at 6.8 seconds with a top speed of 93 mph. The RC can battle for about 20 minutes per charge and Nissan plans to run the car in exhibition mode at select 2011 motorsport events.
