The team over at 7Tune have had their heads in the latest Best Car magazine, which reveals some new tasty tidbits about the 2010 Nissan FR sports car. It looks like the the battle between Subaru/Toyota and Nissan, to have the best lightweight rear-wheel drive coupe, just stepped up a notch.

The Nissan is expected to put out between 165kWs and 185kWs with torque pegged just shy of 300Nms. A HR16DET four-cylinder turbo with VCR (Variable Compression Ratio Piston-Crank System) will combine with a six-speed box and a 1250kg kerb-weight to give the FR commendable performance.

Body size and styling will all depend on what platform is utilised beneath the sheet-metal, but Best Car has detailed that the "54" platform will be used. This would result in a vehicle that's wider, shorter in length, and a fraction taller than the previous generation S15 Silvia. Best Car's renderings are based on reports that the FR would share its styling with the V36 Skyline, but aesthetics are still highly speculative at this early stage.

With Subaru/Toyota and Nissan both aiming for similar power, weight and pricing (Â¥2,000,000) specifications, it's good news for future customers. While the wait is far from over, we're already looking forward to a TMR Comparo on these two lightweight coupes, as there's little doubt that both will be a hoot to drive.
