Earlier this year, Nissan unveiled its electric Ariya SUV to the masses, and now it has used this design to inform a single-seater electric concept performance car of the same name.

The Nissan Ariya Single-Seater Concept, to give it its full name, promises a high-performance future for the Japanese marque, perhaps in an era where the GT-R and Z-model cars are obsolete. As sources claim, this racer is underpinned by the brand’s CMF-EV and e-4ORCE four-wheel-drive systems, that utilize a dual-motor setup for 389 BHP, 600 Nm of torque, and a 0-62 MPH time of 5.1 seconds.

Juan Manuel Hoyos, Nissan global marketing divisional general manager for brand and engagement, says, “We are delighted to present the Nissan Ariya Single Seater Concept from our Nissan Futures event… At Nissan, we dare to do what others don’t. With this concept we want to showcase the high-performance potential of the Ariya’s powertrain in a motorsports-inspired package that not only hints at the design and styling of the road car that inspired it, but that also demonstrates a new and efficient EV performance language. Acting as a testbed for future technological evolution, this project can help bring excitement from the road to the race track, and also demonstrate Nissan’s expertise in transferring knowledge and technology from the race track to the road.”

Throughout the car’s design language you will find nods to the aforementioned SUV and Nissan’s current range, with details such as the illuminated “V” motion ‘grille’ lighting up at the front, while lashings of carbon fiber can be found all around. Elsewhere, we can see touches of the rare GT-R50 by Italdesign through the car’s choice of color, while little else is going on. Overall, it’s all about aerodynamics, advanced technical design details that see the car sport unique wheels, a heavily designed rear wing and diffuser setup, and other elements that will make it perfect for e-racing.

Take a look a the Nissan Ariya Single-Seater Concept above, and stay tuned to HYPEBEAST and HYPEBEAST Car Club for more information.
