The fraternity of small roadsters may be getting a new member soon. Nissan Motor Co. will show this concept vehicle, named the Urge, at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January.
The Urge was created at Nissan's studio in La Jolla, Calif., by car designers who are also motorcycle enthusiasts, said Bruce Campbell, vice president of design for Nissan Design America. A key goal of the Urge is to give the driver and passenger the sensation of the road going by, Campbell said.
The concept is fitted with a small high-revving engine and rear-wheel drive. An Xbox 360 gaming system is part of the interior.
