Nissan Sentra NISMO 01

Nissan’s NISMO division unveiled a couple of their creations at the 2013 LA Auto Show. The Sentra NISMO Concept is what happens when a seemingly pedestrian commuter car is turned into a 240-horsepower beast, and that’s only the beginning.

Under the hood is a 1.8-liter turbocharged engine — a direct-injection, bored-out demon heart taken from the Juke NISMO RS, no less — that pushes said horses through the front gate with 240 lb-ft of torque to match. The power is delivered through a six-speed manual heavily muscled up to handle it all. Recaro seats, wide fender flares, and other assorted NISMO goodies, as well as 19-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin’s Super Sport performance tires, round out the total package.

Alas, this is just a performance study for the in-house tuning division, but perhaps if one were to wish hard enough, a NISMO Sentra could come in the future.
