American debuts of the new Nissan GT-R NISMO at the Tokyo Motor Show and Los
Angeles Auto Show respectively.

"We have developed three digital magazines, each with a different editorial
slant, that combine to tell the full NISMO and Nissan performance story," said
Jon Brancheau, vice president, Marketing, Nissan North America, Inc.

    supplemented with exclusive images from Nissan's own photo library

Nissan's unique U.S. Marketing Innovation Lab took the lead in developing the
digital magazine content curation, partnering with N4MD (pronounced
"informed"), a startup tech company based in Atlanta. N4MD offers unique
technology that pulls the best content from around the web about the NISMO
brand and presents it in a simple user interface. N4MD's Interest Server tool
publishes the selected content to Flipboard, a digital reader with over 90
million users.

"We believe this approach offers a very rich, immersive customer experience
that brings the Nissan, NISMO and GT-R brands to life it a way that provides
readers with complete control and an easy-to-navigate interface," added
Brancheau. "N4MD gives us a terrific way to gather, filter and share the best
Nissan performance-oriented content on the web."

Nissan's Marketing Innovation Lab
Working with startup companies through the Marketing Innovation Lab offers
Nissan direct access to new technologies at a fraction of the cost of more
established properties. The Marketing Innovation Lab staffers have years of
advertising agency, direct marketing and technology experience.

"We are always looking for new ways to communicate with our owners and car
enthusiasts. You could liken the team at the Innovation Lab to the judges on
the popular ABC network show Shark Tank," said Brancheau. "We can leverage our
brand strength to drive our fans to this kind of new media experience.
Nissan's marketing tagline is 'Innovation that Excites,' so supporting new
ideas and leaders makes sense. With the new Flipboard magazine portal we've
come up with a winner right out of the box."

"We are excited to work with the Nissan Marketing Innovations Lab, which has
allowed us to "tune" our content curation product, The Interest Server, to fit
the needs of a world-class company like Nissan," said James Harris, co-founder
and CEO, N4MD. "Nissan's Marketing Innovations Lab team's commitment to
working with startups speaks volumes about Nissan's corporate innovation, on
and off the track."
