Nissan / Datsun passenger cars: books - history

A book on Nissan / Datsun? Here are illustrated books on the history, models and technology of Nissan / Datsun passenger cars.

Nissan - Planète automobile

Cherry, Micra, Bluebird, Qashqai, Juke. Ces noms évoquent des modèles bien connus du constructeur japonais Nissan. Derrière eux se cache un empire industriel présent dans le monde entier et d'une complexité à peine imaginable.
De la mythique 240Z des années 1970 à l'explosive GT-R d'aujourd'hui, en passant par les sages Sunny, la mignonne Figaro, l'originale Prairie, les Patrol baroudeurs ou la récente Leaf électrique, Nissan a commercialisé une incroyable variété de modèles, dont la plupart restent pourtant inconnus en Europe !
Sans parler de la multitude de modèles réservés au marché intérieur japonais. Saviez-vous, par exemple, que la Dacia Logan s'est vendue au Mexique sous le nom de Nissan Aprio ? Que la Ford Corsair australienne est une Nissan rebadgée ? Ou encore qu'Alfa Romeo a construit une Nissan Cherry remotorisée par le quatre-cylindres à plat de l'Alfasud ?

De quelques dizaines de voitures produites en 1933 aux trois millions et demi de véhicules fabriqués chaque année par l'actuel partenaire de Renault, une extraordinaire aventure de quatre-vingts ans se déroule au fil des pages de cet ouvrage. L'histoire passionnante des marques Nissan, Datsun, Infiniti, Venucia, Prince et Cony est ici passée en revue, en complément d'un catalogue très complet de tous les modèles fabriqués, y compris les nombreux concept-cars fourmillant d'idées nouvelles et les dérivés parfois inattendus. En refermant ce livre, vous aurez une connaissance approfondie d'un empire aux multiples ramifications, la planète Nissan.

Nissan - The GTP & Group C Racecars 1984-1993 : Lightning Speed

When Don Devendorf and John Knepp got together to form Electramotive Engineering of El Segundo, California, little did they realise that they were setting in motion a train of events which would sooner, rather than later, bring to them and the mighty Nissan GTP cars that they promoted, developed and raced, no less than four IMSA Camel GT Championships.

Here, for the first time, is the story of Nissan in racing from 1984 to 1993, the GTP era. The full story of Electramotive and NPTI is told, with interviews with Don Devendorf, John Knepp, Geoff Brabham, Trevor Harris, Kas Kastner, Ashley Page, and many other members of the crew that won the IMSA Camel GT Championship from 1988 to 1991.

The story of the European Group C Nissans, using chassis from March and Lola, from 1985 to 1992 is also told, along with interviews from many of the drivers and technicians involved, such as Mark Blundell, Julian Bailey, Dave Price and Bob Bell.
