Nissan has revealed an interesting concept at this year’s Tokyo Auto Show in the form of the BladeGlider which wants to become the best handling production car in the world. The most obvious feature of the car is its extremely narrow front track and a 1+2 seating layout inspired from the epic McLaren F1. Nissan says the vehicle adopts a 30:70 weight distribution, with most of the weight at the back consisting in the two in-board motors, lithium-ion batteries and the two passengers. The concept is actually a follow-up to the ZEOD RC Zero Emission on Demand racecar and can be handled from an aircraft-inspired steering wheel.
The Nissan BladeGlider concept is a rear-wheel drive concept that will serve as foundation for an upcoming production model. The Japanese marque didn’t say anything about the vehicle’s technical specifications but they did mention motivation comes from rear in-wheel motors.
