Not A Plane: Nissan's Futuristic Land Glider

Sure it may look like a spaceship's cockpit, but it's not! It's the cockpit of Nissan's Land Glider, a conceptual car design recently unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show.

This is the Nissan Land Glider, an electric car with two seats. it has a narrow body, which Nissan says will help reduce traffic congestion by allowing more cars in the same city space, as well as making parking easier. It has a balancing system to make it stable as it takes curves, compensating for inertia with the car's body movement.

I actually like it (hit the jump for more shots and a video). And not just because it looks skinny enough to bob and weave between a giant robot's legs, but that's something you have to think about when you're in the market for a futuristic car. Also, standard weaponry and estimated RBI. Ha, what do you mean that's a baseball stat? SHUT UP I KNOW CAR STUFF!

Hit it for for more pictures and a 6:00 video.

Thanks to Julian and Lemur, who don't just drive futuristic cars, they ARE futuristic cars. Decepticons -- kill them with fire!

    That steering yoke & dashboard make me think somebody watched a LOT of "Knight Rider" when they were a kid.
