The Max-Out concept contrasts classic sports car styling with bleeding-edge futuristic tech

Nissan has revealed a drop-top concept car as part of its Nissan Futures showcase in Yokohama. The two-seater electric convertible is an unexpected package that digs way back into the brand’s heritage, inspired by the S310 Datsun Fairlady 1500 of the 1960s. The classic proportions of this elegant roadster can be seen in the new Max-Out concept alongside ultra-futuristic digital displays and exterior lighting.

Yu Lihao, associate program design director at Nissan, says the concept was an “entirely new challenge for the brand” and was inspired by the Fairlady 1500’s “low gravity, openness, fun to drive, casual attitude and iconic design.”
