No, this isn’t Tony Stark’s new ride in the latest movie adaptation to spring from the Marvel universe. Pictured here is the Nissan BladeGlider, a delta-shaped electric sportscar concept that the Japanese automaker will debut at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show. Featuring a long, narrow nose and wide-stance wheels in back, the shape is designed to for optimal aerodynamics and stability. The rear tires are fitted with in-wheel electric motors powered by lithium-ion batteries, while the unique design continues inside the cabin — accessible via upward swinging semi-butterfly doors — where the driver sits front and center with room for two passengers in the back. Nissan isn’t shy about the vehicle’s potential, stating that “when BladeGlider matures into a production car, it could be Nissan’s first use of in-wheel motors.”
