Nissan Altima V8 Supercar Revealed...sortof...

Kelly Racing down in Australia is beginning to reveal their new Nissan Altima V8 Supercar for the 2013 season.  An early look at the livery and body of the vehicle can be seen in the artist interpretation here.

Additionally, Kelly Racing and Nissan have released this video showing a bit of the build of the fiberglass body, cage, engine and more.  From the look of their shop this is a truly worldclass operation on par with a NASCAR or Indycar program.  Certainly not a grassroots effort of any kind.

The VERY cool thing about this effort?  If you wish, you can go and see these V8 (VK56 powered) Altimas race here in the US in 2013 as the Australian Supercars series will be coming to the Austin, TX, Circuit of the Americas for one of their races next year (in addition to F1, MotoGP and other worldclass, non-NASCAR events).  Can't wait!
