citing stylistic references from nissan’s GT-R, as well as evoking aspects of the company’s performance models throughout the ages, the aerodynamic scheme was considered to have so much potential that the advanced engineering team based at the nissan technical centre in atsugi, japan got involved to take the car from a state of virtual concept to reality. together the designers and technicians worked closely to ensure that the computer-generated vehicle would perform as realistically as possible.
