Nissan Micra 350SR with a VQ35 V6

Several years ago Nissan GB commissioned RML (Ray Mallock Limited) Group to build the Micra R. The team removed the factory engine and installed one of their 2.0 L Primera engines made for British Touring Car that produced 265 hp with a Hewland sequential six-speed transmission. After testing the car a couple of years Nissan decided to replace the powertrain for something more dependable. They chose less exotic components from their parts bin. The engine would be a 3.5 L VQ35DE V6 from a Murano. The engine produces 305 horsepower and 267 lb-ft (363 Nm) of torque thanks to 350Z heads, Nismo cams and a Nismo tune. The transmission is a six-speed manual transmission from a Altima SE-R. The powertrain allowed the 2,755 lb (1,250 kg) car to reach 0-60 mph in under five seconds and have a top speed of 150 mph.
