Crafted by the impressive X-Tomi Design, the reimagined Datsun features cues from another X-Tomi creation, the Abarth version of the Fiat 124, albeit with its own unique lower front fascia. But the big changes involve crafting a hardtop coupe onto the Fiat body.
As you can see, the hardtop is far from an afterthought, and incorporates a large rear window and angular rear side windows. We particularly like the blacked-out rear decklid panel, diving it that vintage look.
Given that Nissan shuttered its own attempts to do anything fun with the Datsun name plate, this is the closest we’ll probably get to seeing a modern-retro 240Z. The original Z had a 2.4-liter inline-6 under the hood, though if we had our way, this concept would feature the MR16DDT engine from the 2014 Nissan Juke RS Nismo.
The 1.6-liter turbocharged engine puts out 215 horsepower, though it is capable of as much as 300 horsepower in the DeltaWing racing application. Such a powerplant would be the perfect complement to make this reimagined Datsun the perfect corner-carver for all seasons.
