Datsun Is Back: Idx Freeflow Concept, Nissan's Answer To The Fr-S/brz

Recommended Posts

The front is dominated by a flat face, very unusual in the swoopy aero shapes of current designs. Four round headlights with a hood line dipping inward towards the grille are the signature design cue, and vents below the grille evoke the same element from the original 510. The chrome bumper is even reminiscent of a classic air dam. From the rear, another vertical panel and tail lights with three distinct elements draw inspiration from the classic 510. Classic four-spoke wheels reminded us of so many vintage barrels from Work Equip 01s to SSR MkIIs to the American Racing Libres.

Though specs weren’t revealed, our sources say that the IDX concept is powered by a 2.5-liter inline four, mounted longitudinally for an all-important RWD layout. On stage, it appeared about the same size as the neo-hachiroku Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ twins, and if produced it will go head-to-head against them in the marketplace.

I like than Nissan are heading down this path of re-inventing and paying tribute to their most loved and successfull models, but I do have to say that there is still much which has been lost in translation.

      This car I purchased as a completed project, in my opinion it was built just how I wanted, with just a few mechanical let downs which I have now fixed or in the process of.

      The car is a 1970 Datsun 1600 with a Nissan FJ20ET.

      The motor is standard except for a GT30 600HP BB turbo with external wastegate plumbed back into the 3 1/2" to 3" mandrel exhaust. The motor is cooled by a nice big custom radiator made by Mr Enforcer and a Davies Craig Electric Water Pump.

      The ECU is currently a WOLF3D.

      Bilstein/Eibach Coilovers with Mazda 4 Spot Calipers.

      R180 Torsen LSD with Custom CV Shafts.

      The paint/body & custom retrim were done on the original build back in Late 90's early 2000.
