BladeGlider Concept

After making their worldwide debuts at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, both the Nissan GT-R NISMO and the BladeGlider concept made the trip over to Europe for the Geneva Motor Show. The show, which is close to powering down now— its last day will be March 16—unites the present and future of racing and performance car technology for Nissan.

The GT-R NISMO, which is Nissan’s fastest ever GT-R, makes use of a 3.8L twin-turbocharged V6 to set a record time at the Nurburgring racetrack for production cars. Already one of the best performance-driven supercars available, now with NISMO capability, the GT-R is now even better. It revs up to 186 mph, gripping the road tightly via its advanced aerodynamics.

While the GT-R NISMO represents the present of Nissan’s performance technology capability, the sleek and different BladeGlider Concept gives us a glimpse of what the future will be like. A unique three-wheel design, wide in the back and tapering to a point in the front, the BladeGlider looks like nothing else you’ve ever seen. At Bates Nissan, we can’t wait to see how Nissan uses technology from the BladeGlider and GT-R NISMO both to create amazing new performance vehicles in the future.
