The modified Nissan Leaf will compete in this week’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, and although it won’t compete for an open win, it could turn a few heads.
EV was brought to life by the Japanese Samurai Speed racing team and underwent a number of important changes to help it complete its difficult time test.
Improving EV aerodynamics has been a priority for samurai speeds. With this in mind, the EV is equipped with a redesigned front fascia, which includes a new bumper and a special hood with large air vents. The hatchback also has large splitters and large canaries on either side of the bumper to attach the front wheels to the sidewalk.

Various other changes have been made. These include the installation of new side skirts and a set of five-sided black wheels wrapped in sticky tires. The rear is modified with a fixed rear wing, a unique bumper and an impressive diffuser. You may also notice that the leaf has been modified with two doors and air vents instead of rear side windows. Rounding the Changes is an amazing package from AV Custom Wraps in California.
It seems that the Samurai Speed Leaf has not made any changes to the power supply system. As far as we know, it is based on the flagship Leaf e + with a 62 kWh battery pack and a 160 kW (214 hp) electric motor that drives the front wheels. After driving the Leaf e + before, we can confirm that it is not oblique in a straight line, but it often has difficulty transmitting power through the front wheels.
