Nissan Micra Nismo Concept unveiled at Tokyo Auto Salon image

The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently unveiled the Micra Nismo Concept at the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon.

The Tokyo Auto Salon is the Japanese equivalent of the SEMA in Las Vegas and the event is attracting mostly tuners, which is the case of the Nissan Micra Nismo Concept, a concept car developed by Nissan’s in-house tuning division, Nismo. Even if the 2012 Nissan Micra Nismo Concept doesn’t have a great chance of hitting the production line, the model is actually pretty important because it signalizes Nismo’s level and it also previews some features which can be implemented on future models.

The Nissan Micra Nismo Concept is actually following the Juke Nismo Concept and the Leaf Nismo concept, and its creator is planning to become a true rival to other performance brands like Mercedes-Benz’s AMG Division or the BMW M Division. As you can see from the images posted below, the Nissan Micra Nismo Concept is coming with a lower stance, a modified front grille, tailored door mirrors, rear lip spoiler, purpose designed seats and a custom steering wheel just to give the model a sporty touch. The Nissan Micra Nismo Concept is also coming with a tighter suspension setup and light alloy wheels wrapped in performance tires.
