Not limited to being inspired just by racing cars, IDx NISMO Concept was born from a combination of parts from memorable vehicles of yesteryear and the present, in addition to whatever was felt exudes "cool."

The IDx NISMO is an ultra-sporty concept that looks like it came directly from the Gran Turismo driving simulator.

Many digital natives grew up playing racing simulation games that feature cars of the past and from all corners of the globe. They have a natural desire to realize that virtual driving experience in real cars of their own, and that is the basis of the Nissan IDx NISMO Concept.

Not limited to being inspired just by racing cars, IDx NISMO Concept was born from a refined combination of the freedom to borrow liberally from memorable vehicles of yesteryear and the present, in addition to whatever was felt exudes "cool."

IDx NISMO: Exterior Design

The Nissan IDx NISMO's co-creation dialogue took the distilled heritage of Nissan's basic box-shaped racing vehicles of the past and married it with various intriguing new details. This resulted in a car that appears to be timeless and moored in a place all its own.

Though IDx NISMO Concept shares the overall length and height of its Freeflow cousin, the 5.9-foot width (versus 5.6-foot for the IDx Freeflow) of the car is testament to its low, wide stance that emphasizes its sporty proportions.

One of the hallmarks of box-type racecars is speediness conveyed by a reverse-slanted nose. On IDx NISMO, this frontal design element is embellished by an aura of seriousness communicated by the use of carbon panels. Side mufflers provide a pleasing exhaust note. The car also has contemporary touches such as front/rear and right/left aerodynamic spoilers and a lightweight 19-inch wheel and 225/40 tire package.

Inside: Race Car Ambiance

Scanning the IDx NISMO interior reveals racing-inspired crimson Alcantara seat covers that entice the eyes, complemented by Spartan-looking meters and gauges that animate the racecar ambience. The lustrous metal surfaces contrast with the bright red suede trim that is augmented by blue stitching.

The IDx Freeflow and IDx NISMO will be shown at the Nissan display at Detroit's Cobo Hall during the run of the 2014 North American International Auto Show, January 18th through 26th.

Powered by 1.6-Liter Turbo Engine

To meet the high expectations for a powertrain equal to the task of propelling such a formidable car, one proposal from Nissan's engineers is the combination of a high-performance, eco-friendly 1.6-liter direct-injection turbocharged engine, together with a sporty CVT with 6-speed manual shift mode and synchronized rev control. The result is no less than an appealing mix of racing heritage with the finest of modern knowhow.
