The joy of SX

Swedish design firm creates racing version of almost-classic Nissan 200SX. We want one

We like Vizualtech, the Swedish design firm responsible for the lovely Volvo P1800 and Dodge Challenger Le Mans car.

This is their latest effort, a widebody Nissan 200SX created for an anonymous Swedish ‘client' (who, judging by the name on the side of the car, might just be called Fredrik Soderquist, but we're saying nothing).

It'd be powered, says Vizualtech, by a turbocharged two-litre engine putting out around 600bhp. If you think that sounds a bit over-the-top, don't forget that Ford's Fiesta Rallycross will put out over 700bhp from an engine of the same size. Yowch.

The 200SX is inspired by Japan's GT500 touring cars and features a carbon fibre body and a venturi tunnel for downforce. We like it.

Reckon it's time to give the 370Z a bit of the GT500 treatment, Nissan? Or would that put it on a collision course with the awesome GT-R GT500

Now share it...
