At this year’s Detroit auto showNissan lifted the curtain off of its latest design concept: the Nissan Vmotion 2.0. The massive V-shaped grille takes the current V-motion grille you’ll see on virtually every Nissan at dealer lots today and cranks it up to 11. 
Nissan also borrows the floating-roof design from the current-generation Maxima, which could mean Nissan plans to throw the stylish roof on other upcoming products. The taillights, too, resemble those of the Maxima but are slimmer and more mature. We can only assume that the deep angular sculpted scallop on the car’s side is more of an auto show statement than something that will make its way to a production line. Still, it could be something that gets watered down and finds a home on the next-generation GT-R.

Of course, the futuristic interior and suicide rear doors probably won’t ever see the light of day. Though cool, rear-hinged rear doors don’t make sense anywhere outside of the show floor – save for your fourth-generation Lincoln Continental. The chic minimalist interior looks cool under the lights too.
The Sport Sedan concept previewed many of the styling cues we saw in the redesigned Maxima. We bet we’ll see the taillights and front fascia put to use within a few years, maybe on the R36 GT-R.
