Nissan unveils Hyper Force concept

Nissan develops next generation super car in conjunction with Gran Turismo

At the recent Japan Mobility show, Nissan unveiled the Hyper Force, the resounding finale to its innovative series of five hyper concept vehicles. The Nissan Hyper Force is designed for racing enthusiasts and gamers who crave the adrenaline rush of the racetrack but who are also eco conscious.

This all-electric high-performance super car aims to deliver the ultimate in driving pleasure while also offering high environmental performance and comfort for daily use.

At its core is a high-output all-electric powertrain with an optimal weight balance and all-solid-state battery that can produce up to 1 000kW, offering precise and rapid acceleration. Powerful downforce, an advanced form of Nissan’s e-4Force all-wheel control technology and a lightweight body made of high-strength carbon promises enhanced cornering and exceptional handling on circuits and winding roads.

Futuristic yet familiar design

The exterior design, with its wide and planted proportions, is a blend of sleek curves merging seamlessly with bold geometry that reflects the performance underneath. Incorporated throughout the design are elements that pay homage to Nissans distinguished history of high-performance cars, such as the front and rear lamps.

The exterior developed in conjunction with the NISMO racing team achieves high aerodynamic performance and generates powerful downforce. The two-tiered aerodynamic structure under the front bonnet provides both strong downforce and excellent cooling performance while the dual-level rear diffuser optimally controls airflow. The front winglets, front fender flip and both ends of the rear wing feature unique active aero functionality. Lightweight forged carbon wheels aid aerodynamics and brake cooling.

An interior designed in conjunction with Gran Turismo

The concept features two driving modes R and GT and the graphical user interface designed in collaboration with Polyphony Digital a subsidiary of Sony and makers of the Gran Turismo video game changes colour and display accordingly, showing the most needed information for the driver in line with the driving circumstances.

In R mode the cabin illuminates in red and panels on the dashboard extend towards the seating space to enhance the cockpit feel around the driver. Four satellite screens around the steering wheel display tyre grip and temperature, air pressure, brake rotor temperature, power distribution and a host of other information invaluable for racing.

In GT mode the cabin illuminates in blue and the screens surrounding the steering wheel move away and combine together, providing an immersive experience with a simpler infotainment interface, including air-conditioning, audio, suspension and stabiliser settings, for a comfortable drive. 

The driver and front passenger seats are made of lightweight, highly rigid carbon fibre that are equipped with four-point seat belts and ensure comfortable long-distance driving.

Elevating the Nissan Hyper Force’s appeal is an innovative augmented reality and virtual reality experience that enables driving in both real and the virtual world seamlessly. When the vehicle is stationary, the driver can use a special helmet with blind visors for VR that enable entry into a gamified driving experience, complete with modes that enable racing against the clock or online racers. The use of skeleton visors for AR allows the driver to compete against their own, friends or even professional drivers’ digital ghosts on a circuit, allowing users to safely push their driving skills on real-world tracks.

A next generation supercar

Marking a paradigm shift in the performance car-genre, the Nissan Hyper Force caters to the ever-evolving preferences of environmentally conscious customers. Thanks to eco-friendly, electrifying performance and cutting-edge safety equipment, this concept perfectly illustrates Nissan’s vision for a next-generation all-electric high-performance supercar.
