The slow drip of official information for Nissan's 2013 Altima continues to spread across the internet. Today, the Japanese automaker has unveiled a (very) short video clip and a shady single image that hints at the expressive profile sheetmetal on its new family sedan. The video is very brief, but together with the other images we've seen depicting the new boomerang-shaped taillamps, headlamps and overhead view, we're starting to mentally stitch together a composite view of the new car.

We couldn't resist helping Nissan accelerate its reveal process by tinkering with Photoshop's brightness and contrast controls a bit. You can see the result in our gallery which reveals a nicely rounded three-window greenhouse and a set of split five-spoke alloys. In addition, check out the short video after the jump while you're waiting for live shots and impressions to drop from New York.

Nissan has released a fourth video clip and image offering a glimpse of the bold design of the all-new 2013 Altima sedan in advance of its world premiere at the New York Auto Show in April. The sculpted bodyside surface communicates forward motion and aerodynamics even when standing still.

      Strong profile? Or ultra dramatic photography... I mean, the Dodge Dart looked pretty cool in its teaser photos...

      Since 2002 the altima redesigns have always set the style standard for this segment. Sorry. But thats the truth and this one is looking to keep that tradition.

      Reminds me a lot of the current-gen Maxima. Not sure if that's a good thing or not. It also looks like its grown again in size. That's definitely not a good thing in my book.

      It must be hard to mentally stich an image of a slghtly smaller Maxima.

      Infiniti M?

      I saw a test mule in full camo driving around Phoenix a month ago and it looked like a big car (in relation to the current Altima's) but that might've just been the camo. From what I could tell, it's definitely going to have the expressive body lines that are shown here.
