The company will also be making a bid for the title of fastest vehicle at the Festival ... with a Nissan Primera.

Not one but two concepts are having their first ever showing at Goodwood this year. If the press and public approve, they could be available in the not so distant future.

Taking star position on Nissan's stand is the Murano GT-C, standing for GT Concept. Nissan GB has taken its shapely crossover 4x4 and made it even more dramatic inside and out. Exterior brightwork has been given a new darker hue and all lights have been tinted to coordinate with the Kuro Black paintwork. The Murano's standard 18" alloy wheels have been changed for a new 22", five-spoke design. And a raised roof spoiler finishes the purposeful look. Just as striking is the GT-C's interior which has been retrimmed using British craftsmanship and a classic colour palette but with a modern slant.

The GT-C's drivetrain modifications are equally exciting. Under the close supervision of Nissan's Bedfordshire based European Technical Centre, the Murano's 234PS 3.5-litre V6 engine with seamless CVT transmission has been Turbocharged to literally boost power to around 350PS. The suspension has also been modified to give the Murano a tauter feel while retaining Nissan's electronic ALL-MODE 4x4 system. Road testing will begin after the GT-C's next public appearance at the London Motor Show. But expect continents to shrink under its power, whatever the weather.
