The Nissan ARC-X was a concept car from 1987.
Designed by Shigeru Miki, the ARC-X has a transverse-mount 24-valve v6 engine producing 190hp and included a 4WD layout with four-wheel steer capabilities.
The aerodynamic design achieved a 0.26 coeffecient of drag rating.
The gear shift and controls were housed between the two front seats to allow for additional space for electronics. I was awarded the a car design award in 1987 and dubbed the "Worlds Best Concept Car" in 1988.
The ARC-X is known as the predecessor to the Infiniti line.
