Nissan Gripz Concept teased -- crossing over into new territory

Making its world debut in Frankfurt the Nissan Gripz Concept was "conceived to create an innovative new driving sensation." Designed to leverage Nissan's pioneering work in the sporty crossover realm that led to the current Juke, Qashqui and X-Trail, the Gripz was inspired by both early Nissan 240Z rally racers and contemporary road bicycles and reportedly will feature innovations that "will move the bar higher."
