Jay Leno Checks out the Nissan IDx Nismo Concept

Designed to showcase an affordable Nissan sports car possibly due to hit the roads in the next few years, the Nissan IDx Nismo Concept features largely retro styling but with a host of modern features helping to create a truly unique looking rear-wheel drive sports car. American TV host Jay Leno recently had the exclusive opportunity to have a tour of the new IDx Nismo Concept while also taking it for a spin on the road.


Throughout the video, Leno is joined by Giovanni Arroba, Nissan’s Creative Design Manager. If you’re not too fond of the chit-chat about its styling, then skip it to the 8:40 mark to see Leno hitting the streets in this extremely rare concept.

As it stands, Nissan is working on creating a small 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine for the IDx Nismo for when it hits the production line. If this goal comes to fruition, then it could easily rival the 200 hp Toyota GT86/Scion FRS and Subaru BRZ.
