Flanked by the IDx Freeflow and IDx NISMO concepts on either sides, Nissan unveiled its new Sport Sedan Concept earlier today at the 2014 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. In vibrant “Strad Amber” colorway, Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer Shiro Nakamura introduced the 4-door sports sedan as a “statement and direction for the future of Nissan…”

By incorporating the new V-Motion front end design, aggressively shaped grille, and LED headlights in Nissan‘s signature “boomerang” forms, the concept also features a “floating” roof, a pillar-less silhouette that gives the vehicle a streamlined appearance. Painted with gold-colored primer with several layers of top coat in orange-amber, Nissan designers achieved the “Strad Amber” finish, a look inspired by the rich hue found on a Stradivarius violin. Thanks to the “floating” roof design, the spacious cabin features diamond-quilted seats and panels, all with references to contemporary home furnishing. Powered by a 300-plus horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine, with sport-tuned Xtronic CVT and performance suspension, majority of the elements found on the front-wheel drive Nissan Sport Sedan Concept will also be likely on the next-generation Nissan Maxima sport sedan.
