A second teaser of the Z badged GripZ crossover has been released by Nissan and this comes as part of a build up to its official launch at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. The GripZ will be the first all-new Z car in quite some time and the launch will also mark a first for the legendary badge to have been placed on a body style that is non-coupe for the brand.
The 370Z is likely to remain the largest car that Nissan will produce as the market seems to be looking at crossovers more than the average run of the mill SUVs alone. Thus, this is a conscious decision taken by the automaker keeping the market preferences in mind.
The crossover has been christened the GripZ as a tribute to the 240Z desert race cars, which were popular in the 1960s and the 1970s. These were characterized by big tyres and modified suspension and the crossover too seems to be cut out of the same cloth. The car has a high ground clearance and a wide stance in addition to design elements such as the V shaped badge and full LED headlights.
The launch of the GripZ is slated to be one of the most anticipated on the first day of the Frankfurt Motor Show this year and it is likely to set social media abuzz when more details are finally revealed by the company at the event.
