A heavily camouflaged Nissan Fuga (Infiniti M35/45 in North America) has been spotted testing in Arizona and promises to be one very stylish looking sedan once the wraps are taken off at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show.
In Japanese automotive press circles, some well educated guesses are being thrown around about the new Nissan Fuga with the appearance of a test car spotted in Arizona recently. The test car was seen sporting camouflage covering its entire body, but that didn’t stop Holiday Auto (HA) from producing some CG images of what they expect the Fuga to look like.
HA say that the upcoming Fuga will borrow heavily from the Nissan Essence concept car as shown at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. With pronounced and flowing front and rear guards, the design should incorporate many design cues from the Essence, particularly at the rear where the trunk shut lines and tail lights intersect, as well as incorporating a similar moulded trunk spoiler. So too the headlights may vary only slightly from the Essence concept car and the side profile may even incorporate the Essence concept car’s unusual side window sill detail.
HA go on to say that the new Fuga should look much more muscular and “dynamic” than the outgoing car and that it will debut designs which should flow down through the model range and give us an idea of what the next V37 Nissan Skyline should look like. If HA’s renders are anything to go by, maybe Nissan can be forgiven for some of its more lackluster designs such as the V35 Skyline…
