We’re big fans of the Datsun 510, or Datsun 1600, here at Motorsport Retro. Back in the golden age of motoring they offered great performance at a good price, with oodles of potential for modification. A brilliant little drivers’ car!

Nissan set concepts of their new IDx loose on the world at the Detroit motorshow this week and we’re feeling more than a little racing history love from the performance Nismo edition.

Light weight and rear wheel drive, with lines and a livery that references the classic white with red and blue stripes of classic racing Datsun 510s. It has us reminiscing about the glory days of the 510.

The IDx is certainly out there, and we’re not fans of every angle, but it looks like great fun and we can’t wait to see what comes of it! Check out the pics, and let us know what you think!
