Video: Jay Leno checks out Nissan IDx Nismo, spiritual successor to classic Datsun 510

Nissan IDx Nismo with Jay Leno

Jay Leno may not be spending his night behind the Tonight Show desk anymore, but he’s clearly not done rolling precious metal into his garage, intent on putting it through its paces after a thorough investigation. The latest machine to meet Jay on his home turf is the Nissan IDx Nismo Concept that we first saw at the Tokyo Motor Show late last year.

Leno already has love for the classic Datsun 510, which plays a cameo in the video that you’ll see below, and he refers to the IDx as the spiritual successor to that car’s ethos – driving fun in an affordable package. Fortunately for us, while the IDx is a showcar first and foremost, it is indeed driveable, and Leno, naturally, takes his turn behind the wheel.
