Concept Car of the Week: Nissan Jikoo (2003)

Nissan Jikoo concept

The curvy two-seater Nissan Jikoo was shown at the 2003 Tokyo Motor Show

Founded in 1603, on the Japanese island of Honshu, the once-tiny fishing village of Edo has changed much over the past 400 years: it has grown into the world’s second-largest city, become the capital of Japan and changed its name to Tokyo.

During that time of great expansion and development, the city gave birth to Nissan Motor. The year 2003 marked the 400th anniversary of the former and the 70th birthday of the latter, giving Nissan the perfect opportunity to built one of the most eccentric concept cars of recent times.
