While other engines must deal with a fixed compression ratio, the VC-Turbo constantly adapts. It raises or lowers its pistons’ reach seamlessly, variably and continuously, to provide an ideal balance of power and efficiency for every driving situation.
From drawing board to factory floor, Nissan engineers spent two decades researching, testing, and refining what would ultimately become the VC-Turbo. Their journey was fueled by a single question: Can you create an efficient engine that could transform into a turbo powerhouse and back? Their hard work and diligence provided the answer and delivered something truly unique – the world’s first production variable compression turbo engine.
