The Nissan Duad concept which was unveiled in 1991 was
a a vehicle which attempted to reinvent the Lotus 7.
It weighed a a mere 470 kgs (1035 lbs), and had an unusual
layout which was dictated bay the engine position. The
driver sat alongside the engine which meant that the sole
passenger seat was located 38 cm (15 inches) further back.
The curvaceous yet simplistic exterior styling of the
Duad was well ahead of its time, and with just a few revisions
it would look pretty good today.
Powering the Nissan Duad concept was a little 1.0 litre
4-cylinder engine. However the low weight of the vehicle
would have meant this unit was more than up to the job
of providing a spirited drive.
