Nissan’s SEMA Show Lineup Has Something for Everyone

Nissan’s latest crop of vehicles will star at next month’s SEMA show

  • They’ll have both a Nissan Project Overland Frontier and Pathfinder.

  • The all-new 2023 Z will be there too.

  • As will Sung Kang’s “DocZ” Safari Rally-inspired 240Z.

SEMA is always a great venue. There are no limits, no constraints. In fact, the only factor that stands in the way is imagination. Nissan will take advantage of this global super-event to display a few off-road-prepped vehicles, a pair of legends both new and old, and the Altimaniac.

The Altimaniac is the one vehicle that you’ll never see on a public road. Three-time Formula Drift World Champion Chris Forsberg along with Valvoline and Nissan, have created the ultimate 4-seater drift machine. The Altimaniac features the GT-R’s powertrain which has been stroked to develop no less than 2,000 horsepower.

Off-roading is one of the biggest ongoing trends and Nissan’s jumped on the bandwagon with a pair of Project Overland vehicles. Both a new Frontier and Pathfinder have been fitted with Nismo off-road performance components including lift kits, and wheels. The Frontier is especially serious with some heavy-duty bumpers, a Nismo cat-back performance exhaust, and far more.

Another off-road vehicle on display will be the Nissan Rebelle Rally Frontier, fresh from completing the 2021 Rebelle Rally and finishing in sixth-place. Also on hand will be a fully-restored 1971 240Z that was found sporting an East African Safari Rally homage livery. It’s been fully restored and somewhat “improved” as its original L24 has been stroked to 2800cc, and fitted with a custom head, triple Weber carbs, and custom exhaust.

All of these Nissan vehicles will be on display on Nov. 2-5 at Nissan Booth #52157.
