The Nissan Kaze Puts Speed and Power Ahead of Creature Comforts

By: Michael Hines - Published: Dec 31, 2013 • References: carbuzz
Carlo Palacios has given gearheads a new concept car to salivate over with his Nissan Kaze concept car. The Kaze is a two-seater designed for speed; Kaze is Japanese for breeze/gale/wind. Palacios' concept has a rear mid-engine 6.5-liter V12 and is designed in the style of streamlined cars from the 1940s.

The Nissan Kaze has a design similar to the KTM X-Bow, albeit with a little more in the way of creature comforts. If Palacios' design were ever to become reality, chances are that it would only be fit for the track due to its low windshield and complete lack of a roof or top. Here's hoping Nissan takes notice of the Kaze and decides to create either it or something similar. Stats for Stripped-Down Supercar Concepts Trending: Older & Warm
