Nissan Unveils Its Completed Project 370Z: Video

To promote its refreshed 2013 370Z, Nissan solicited fan feedback on its Nissan Performance Facebook page to create the world’s first crowdsourced 370Z track car. Since Kicking off what it called "Project 370Z," Nissan has shown us two videos of the car under assembly, and now we get to see a brief glimpse of the completed project.

Stage one of the build covered engine and handling upgrades, including the addition of a GReddy turbo kit, a KW suspension and brake improvements courtesy of StopTech. Stage two featured a custom tune, interior upgrades, new Volk forged aluminum wheels and a “metaloid” vinyl wrap in matte gray and chrome.

The final video shows the car stretching its legs on The Tail of the Dragon, as part of this year’s ZDayZ 2012 festivities. Given that the event was held in May, it’s a bit odd that Nissan is only releasing the third video in the series now.

We’d also like to see a bit more detail on the car. How much horsepower and torque is it sending to the rear wheels? How does the car’s lap time (at a track of Nissan’s choosing) compare to a stock Z? What will happen to the car now that the build is complete? How can we get a turn behind the wheel?

We’re not complaining, but is seems like the whole Project 370Z effort has been filled with a lot more questions than answers. Care to fill in the blanks for us, Nissan?

Update: Nissan's Troy McKeown has snapped us a pic of the sign that sits beside the Project 370Z at Nissan's Tennessee headquarters. Thanks Troy!

  1. I have no doubt in my mind that Project 370Z is going to come up with impressive specs, but my concerns are about looks. IMO Nissan seems to have lost forever the magic effect of the glorious 1990's 300Zx that caused people to turn their heads around to see one driving by or run to a stop sign or traffic light to see it up close...

  2. @Adalberto, I couldn't agree more. I'm indifferent about the styling of the 350Z and the 370Z (which was an improvement), but was blown away by the styling of the final 300Z. Nearly bought one in 1991, but the cost of insurance was staggering so I opted for an Eclipse GSX instead.

  3. I work in the Nissan HQ office in TN, and this car is here now.
    I don't have full access by any means, but I could maybe get a picture or two.
    Here's a picture of the placard that accompanies it.

  4. @Troy - thanks for the image! Will update the post to include this.
