The Nissan ZEOD RC made its first public appearance in October last year.  Now Nissan has unveiled a new gas engine which will be used along with the electric battery in the ZEOD RC.

With the Nissan ZEOD RC, driver can switch between electric power and gas engine.  The gas engine is named “DIG-T R”,  a three-cylinder 1.5-L turbocharged engine, which weighs only 88 lbs., producing an astonishing 400 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque at 7,500 rpm.

With a light weight and large yield in power, the engine, according to Nissan, offers more power per kilo than a Formula 1 engine.  In addition to being lightweight, the engine is also small in size, it measures 19.68-inch tall, 15.74-inch long and 7.78-inch wide.

At the 2014 LE Mans 24 Hours, the ZEOD RC will run a lap purely on electric and then the new turbocharged engine will take over.

The Le Mans 24 Hours will be on June 14-15, so the Nissan ZEOD RC will have around 4 months to test its new powertrain.
