Straight out of the streets of Sao Paulo, Brazil, the Nissan EXTREM is a specially-crafted concept car in collaboration between Nissan Design America (NDA) and Brazilian designers. It’s a vehicle that highlights the excitement and liveliness that’s synonymous with the country of Brazil and it’s conveyed with every edge and corner of its rugged exterior. Learn more about this unique cultural homage from us at Go Nissan South.
The craftsmanship that went into the EXTREM is nothing short of a celebration of what makes the country of Brazil so alive. Since its debut at the at the 27th São Paulo International Motor Show in 2012, it’d had designers in awe of how vibrant and colourful the vehicle is. It comes in a radiant metallic orange that encapsulates the passion, nature, and sunshine that perfectly describes the country. Meanwhile, more bright neon accents throughout the vehicle supplement the exterior to make it pop on the road.
From its rugged stance to its large wheels, the EXTREM is a vehicle built for the streets of Brazil. Its 19-inch alloy wheels grip the roads with urgency, while its wide body and raised suspension prepares you for a journey beyond conventional roads. The EXTREM is more than just aesthetically pleasing, as its design elements also reflect function and practicality simultaneously. The EXTREM also has dedicated luggage space through a smartly designed two-tier system, while the turbine shape of the wheels help cool down the brakes for optimal safety.
Under the hood of the Nissan EXTREM is a turbocharged 1.6L gasoline engine with the company’s advanced direct injection technology. The technology and engineering in the EXTREM haven’t been seen since the Nissan DeltaWing, the company’s Le Mans race car. Built with options between front or four-wheel drive with Torque Vectoring, it’s as innovative as you’ve come to expect, yet the EXTREM also maintains the practicality of catering to today’s driving needs.
