In Europe we have the Nissan Almera, in Japan they call it the Pulsar and they get a much better deal, thanks to the scorching VZ-R and VZ-R N1 models. Introduced in 1995 as both a four-ddor saloon and a three or five-door hatch (known as the Serier), the Pulsar was stacked head-to-head against Honda's Civic. And that meant having a model to compete with the rip-snorting Civic Type R. The result was the three-door Pulsar VZ-R. Its 1.6-litre in-line four-cylinder 16 valve engine features VVL variable valve timing to produce an astonishing 175BHP. The front wheels scrabbled to put this power down, but the five-speed manual gearbox at least allowed rapid up-shifts so the driver could keep wheel spin to a minimum. The suspension - featuring MacPherson struts at the front and a multi-link beam axle at the rear - was stiffened and lowered to improve handling, whilst bigger alloy wheels and rubber were also added to boost grip. Inside the VZ-R boasted sports seats to hold its occupants in place during fast cornering, and a number of trim upgrades to enhance the sporty image. And as if that wasn't enough Nissan offered the ultimate Pulsar for Japan's enthusiastic boy racers. the limited edition VZ-R N1 had an upgraded two-litre 16-valve engine which threw out 200BHP. Coupled with a stripped out body to trim down the weight this Pulsar really flew. Suspension and brakes were further up-rated to cope with this power hike. Designed to meet the regulations of Japan's N1 racing class, the car was produced in limited numbers and was an immediate sell-out. Of course many did not end up on the track as they were intended, but many more made their best performance on the streets.
