Nissan V8 Supercars Liveries Revealed

With the most anticipated Australian V8 Supercars season in many years beginning in only a couple of weeks it was time for Nissan to finally take the wraps off their four car effort before this weekend's testing sessions.

One team (that run by Todd and Rick Kelly) will carry the black and white Jack Daniel's scheme while the other team with drivers James Moffat and Michael Caruso will see a black and yellow "Norton" scheme.  These are certainly the best looking and most aggressive Nissan Altima's I've ever seen.

How the team performs is yet to be seen however and given that the team admits to being down on horsepower as compared to its adversaries and using an engine based on the now aged VK56 platform, I have my concerns.

We may know more after this weekend and getting a look at the lap times.  With the V8 Supercars series running an event here in the States at the Circuit of the Americas in Texas later this year, it would be nice if they were competitive right out of the box.  We'll see.
