Nissan ARC X

Nissan ARC-X (1987)

Designed by Shigeru Miki, the ARC-X has a transverse-mount 24-valve v6 engine producing 190hp and included a 4WD layout with four-wheel steer capabilities. The aerodynamic design achieved a 0.26 coeffecient of drag rating. The gear shift and controls were housed between the two front seats to allow for additional space for electronics. I was awarded the a car design award in 1987 and dubbed the “Worlds Best Concept Car” in 1988. The ARC-X is known as the predecessor to the Infiniti line.
