Nissan Motorsport has taken the covers off its latest Nismo livery for Michael Caruso’s Altima V8 Supercar.

The car has been launched today at Phillip Island, where the manufacturer’s GT-R GT3 is testing ahead of the Bathurst 12 Hour.

Nissan ran its two cars side-by-side for limited filming laps in between the GT-R’s test schedule.

The V8 Supercar’s livery marks a mild revamp of the scheme run for Caruso last year.

“Today is a display of how heavily committed Nissan is to Australian motorsport,” said Nissan Motor Co. (Australia) Managing Director and CEO Richard Emery.

“Elements from all three pillars of our local motorsport activities – V8 Supercars, GT3 and the Bathurst 12 Hour, and the Nissan PlayStation GT Academy program, were all at Phillip Island.

“All is now set for a huge 2016 season, beginning with the Bathurst 12 Hour next month, where the Nissan GT-R will strive to win back-to-back victories at Mount Panorama, just as it did in 1991 and 1992.”
