Nissan’s Project 370Z is moving along quite nicely.
At the end of April, CarBuzz first reported on Nissan's plans to produce the world's first crowd-sourced 370Z track car. The forward-thinking brand's Facebook fans were allowed to give their input as to what modifications to make on the 370Z. Stage One meant the addition of a GReddy twin-turbocharged system and catback exhaust system for an increase of power, from 332hp to a track-rattling 500hp. A KW suspension upgrade and StopTech braking were also added.
Nissan's Stage Two consists of a custom tuning job and some dyno testing to determine where the torque and horsepower numbers are at. The aptly-named 'Testing and Design' phase also includes updates on the interior, such as a new sports steering wheel, AEM gauges, door panels, bespoke Recaro Racing seats and a new shift knob. The exterior of the Nissan 370Z has been wrapped in a 'metalloy' silver vinyl that is a "hybrid of sophistication and power, much like the Z itself." It rides on a set of 19-inch Volk forged aluminum TE37SL wheels.
Check out the clip below of Nissan's crowd-sourced 370Z and stay tuned for Stage Three, which means the automaker's unveiling of the custom job at the ZDayZ event on May 18th.
