Nissan has unveiled its IDx NISMO concept at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, an ultra-sporty model of the future which looks inspired by racing simulators and racing cars. The IDx NISMO was a merger of what was perceived as cool as well as the freedom borrowed liberally from memorable vehicles of the past and the present – achieved by taking Nissan's basic box-shaped racing vehicles of the past and merging it with various intriguing new details.
As a result, the timeless car was created -- the IDx NISMO. This concept features the same height and length as its IDx Freeflow cousin and has a width of 1.8 meter that provides it with a width low, wide stance. Box-type race cars are known for speed as conveyed by a reverse-slanted nose, complemented by the use of carbon panels.
The IDx NISMO features good sounding side mufflers as well as front/rear and right/left aerodynamic spoilers and lightweight 225/40 19-inch tires. The IDx NISMO concept is proposed to be powered by a high-performance 1.6L direct-injection turbocharged engine paired to a sporty CVT with 6-speed manual shift mode and synchronized rev control.
This results in a glorious and enticing marriage between racing heritage and the finest of modern know-how. The vehicle concept boasts of cabin that features racing-inspired crimson alcantra seat covers, complemented by Spartan-looking meters and gauges.
The IDx NISMO concept features lustrous metal surfaces that contrast elegantly with the bright red suede trim complemented by blue stitching. The IDx NISMO concept is a result of co-creation dialogue that exemplifies Nissan's fresh approach to developing car design.
