We’ve seen what Toyota was up to at the Tokyo Motor Show in the late 1970s. What about rival Nissan? Behold the 1977 Nissan AD-2, a design study for the ultimate luxury sedan.
“AD” stood for Advanced Design. Distinctive features included a wraparound rear window and ultra-thin pillars. It still had fender mirrors, but they were integrated into the body work of the front wings.
Since it was a design study, the underpinnings were rather conventional. Power came from the fuel injected L28 straight six popular in other Nissan products. The rear suspension was a four-link solid axle setup cribbed from the Nissan Laurel.
The rear window area looks a bit like a 430 Cedric/Gloria.
The triple headlights are cool.
reminds me of an aston martin loganda…
i was thinking the same thing lol
Dito!!! I wish i had rapper money to commision Nissan to make me one LoL!!!
front reminds me of KITT of Knight Rider… what the?!
Ugh, Looks like a poorly rendered game model!
This is one concept i’m glad they didn’t make!
I see a little Pontiac 6000 in the grille area. That is not a compliment.
I was thinking more of the J2000 / Sunbird, which wasn’t introduced until 1982.
I see Nissan Skyline elements! Probably took some cues from this concept.
“AD-2” more headlights and you get headlights all the way across!
That looks worse than the car Homer Simpson designed
When I saw the second picture, the first thing that came to mind was early 1980s Buick Skylark, up front, and early 1960s Plymouth Valiant, in the rear.
