IDx, Inspired by THIS?



YESSSS....

Quote:
The Group B Metro 6R4 also takes Palmer's fancy, and notes old-school attributes to cars like Nissan's IDx concept—with low weight, rear-wheel drive, a downsized engine and plenty of fun to drive, it's the sort of car that used to be available across the motoring world. Above all, Palmer hopes that Nissan can one day engineer the sort of cars that catch attention in the same way the cars of his youth did for him—such as the 2020 Vision concept displayed at the show.

Never seen that rally car before. It almost looks more like a toy car than a real one.

Is that about the size the IDX is going to be?

its a Metro from the days of Group B. It wasn't one of the more popular group B cars, how could it be with the likes of the Turbo 5, Quattro and Delta Integrale

I don't know how the IDx will relate dimensionally.. Palmer just said it was kind of an inspiration..

Is the boxy thing on the side of it just an air intake, or is it something else? This car looks like it has so many things just put on it as an afterthought. The front bumper, the spoiler, even the hood looks weird.

well the 510 is a "3 box" car so it's likely they got this box idea from this car

Thanks Lee Hooker!

These things were mean, down and dirty. I could see the inspiration, just got a new vision of the IDX in my head.


Well here are some vintage footage of these beasts.

Just listen...

Its a lot lower and wider than I though now that I've seen the video. It would be cool to see the IDx with a wide body kit in real life, not just some render.

that could actually be the case, we might even see the IDX being used, more so it's shell since they change a lot of stuff.
