Nissan's wedge-shaped car design of the 1970s

The wedge-shaped designs of concept cars seem to have become a trend in the 1960s to the 1970s. This we can see in many concept car designs that were present at that time. And one of them is the Nissan 126X concept.

This concept car made of 1970 has to be one of the all-time classic concept cars. It's first displayed in public at the 1970 Tokyo Motorshow, the 126X had striking styling and many novel features. One such feature was a series of colored lights that were fitted into the louvered center rib on the front of the car.

The red, amber and green lights illuminated in series depending on whether the car was accelerating, cruising or braking in order to allow other road users, especially pedestrians, to gauge the vehicles approach.

The 126X had a wedge-shaped design with a forward-tilting cockpit canopy. The slots along the hood's center housed red, yellow, and green lights which lit up in accordance with what the vehicle was doing (accelerating, braking, or constant speed). The vehicle featured a rear-mounted 3-litre 6 cylinder power plant and 4-wheel drive.
The car's styling was as dramatic from the rear as it is from the front. The 126X was modeled by Lesney Products in their Superfast range as it was by Aguti Toy of Argentina and SZE of China. The original 126X concept still exists and was recently used in a Nissan Design exhibition in Japan. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSTYLING]
