Nissan adjust and design materials and design from Space to improve product
Grabbing the extra pounds Nissan wants to begin creation of prototype materials, which could be used as chassis for future models. It is known that engineers apply for this purpose, the materials and techniques used in sports car and the aerospace industry. Some Elements are taken directly from space shuttles.

Will also further increase the weight of cars resulting from the increasing number of mounted in them. The possibilities and the profitability of the use of new construction will be tested in the emerging just prototype. Maybe we’ll see him in Geneva in early March?
