Nissan Project 370Z Stage 2 Commences
In February, Nissan invited fans to participate in “Project 370Z”. In an effort to highlight the numerous options available in the new 2013 Nissan 370Z, Nissan gave the fans a chance to create a project Z in which they got to choose how the car should be put together. Nissan VP of marketing in North America, Jon Brancheau at that time quoted “Together we’ll create a vehicle that expands on the already outstanding performance and style of the Nissan 370Z with a balance of street and track ready modification“. The Japanese automaker finally built the car and the Nissan Project 370Z has arrived.
Nissan started with a fresh 2013 370Z that was built by fans in three upgrade phases – power, handling/brakes, interior and exterior. Comments were posted on the page by fans at each phase and got to vote on the upgrades and accessories. Thos with the most fan support were chosen for each phase as Nissan built the car. Nissan has wrapped up work on the 2013 Nissan 370Z and has released a video of the dyno-tune session and the improvements fans made to the interior. This new model is powered by a 3.7-L V6 engine – a Greddy Twin Turbo kit, a Greddy Ti-C catback exhaust, KW variant 3 coil-over suspension and StopTech Big Brake kit. It can produce up to 500 hp which is a major improvement from 332 hp.
Nissan gave the sports coupe a number of aesthetic changes including matte gunmetal gray vinyl wrap, a new set of lightweight Volk TE37SL wheels and an interior that includes Recaro seats and plenty of suede. The car is not expected to go on sale.
