Nissan didn’t stop with the 2014 Nismo GT-R and unveiled at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show the IDx Freeflow Concept. This new concept car was build after Nissan designers consulted with one hundred teenagers around the world, in order to create a rear-wheel-drive sports coupe for young customers. Many of you already saw the resemblance to the Datsun 510, a car that was popular more than two decades ago.
According to Andy Palmer, Nissan’s global product planning chief, the new concept features a spaceframe body construction and lightweight composite body panels. Customers, would be able to configure the vehicle online and choose different lights, trims and panels. The Datsun 510 was known among heritage enthusiasts as “poor’s man BMW”.
The concept comes with an interesting color, a combination of white and flax (a light brown shade), while the 18-inch chrome wheels. Inside, we find space for up to four passengers, a no-nonsense steering wheel, a modern-looking speedometer and an analog clock.
Though compact in size – about 4.1 meters in length, 1.7 meters in width, and 1.3 meters in overall height – the IDx Freeflow impresses with its daring yet dignified exterior. Nissan says that the concept car could use a 1.2-to-1.5-liter gasoline engine bolted to a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
