The Nissan IDx Concept is Making an Appearance in Furious 8

The Nissan IDx might never make it to dealerships, but it will be on the big screen.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson recently posted up a short video on Instagram, and although its focus was on his latest movie Central Intelligence, Johnson gives a sneak preview at some of the cars being used in the new Furious 8 movie. Although the video is relatively short, you can spot several cars that will make an appearance including a Rolls-Royce, Toyota Supra, Porsche 911, “the fastest Viper in the world” and the Nissan IDx, which The Rock calls a $2-million Nissan prototype.

The Nissan IDx first debuted at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show and sent automotive enthusiasts in a frenzy, hoping that the Japanese automaker will create a fun-to-drive, rear-wheel sports car. But alas, Nissan has decided against it although we do hope some of the concept will inspire future models like the next-generation Z.
