Nissan Leaf Racer Does Some Electric Donuts [video]
The Nissan Leaf has never been associated with the top performance tier of the hatchback market. Actually, it's pretty much the opposite. So what does it take for the Leaf to actually manage some badassery in its spare time? Well, most definitely a full racing makeover courtesy of in-house tuners Nismo will do the trick. Built back in 2011 as more of a promotional tool than anything, the Leaf Nismo RC packs only 107-hp. But thanks to an extremely light curb weight based on a bespoke tubular frame, it's easier than any electric hatchback to fling around in front of curious bystanders. Which they do.
Dear Nissan Leaf, we may have misjudged you.
