Ive got some friends that work at the Smyrna, TN Nissan plant, who are always updating me with info on the new Altima.

Heres what i heard a few days ago...

Nissan has been testing the 3.5SE on a track and so far the tested top speed is 157 mph... but it still had some pedal to go... the driver backed off b/c it was "scaring him"... theyre projecting about 170 mph top speed.

Ill try to get more info as soon as possible.

i think it was car and driver estimating the 3.5 SE's 0-60 time as 6.28........ faster than the Q45 and 00-01 Maxima SEs

With the right gearing, 240hp should get over 150mph if the aero c/d is reasonable. It would take somewhere around 320hp to get to 170mph (with the right gearing). So that report is BS.

Is it BS? I guess i dont live near where its built and tested, and have plenty of connections with Nissan. And i guess i didnt have the dealer brochure 2 months before the dealers got it. And like i said... "projected top speed" i didnt say it WILL hit 170... i said they ran it at 157 with some to go. So its an estimate. Read the words i use. Thank you. Im done.
