The Nissan Maxima is the carmaker's response to those looking for a seriously sporty sedan that is also practical and fun to drive. To help showcase the new styling and resume of the next generation model, Nissan has just unveiled that they got the car a pace gar gig at the upcoming Lone Star Le Mans race. While you may not have heard of the particular event, you've probably heard of the prestigious Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, which will play host to the event, as well as the Virginia International Raceway, where the Nissan Maxima Safety Car also pulled duty. Nissan will also field two Doran Racing Nissan 370Z NISMOs at the Austin Event, but the pace car will be far more practical with a standard V6, front-wheel-drive engine and a body wrapped in IMSA tags.
