After having the most successful racing seasons yet, Nissan is appearently planning to keep it that way.
The Nissan 370Z Nismo RC packs an array of competition modifications. Its weight has been reduced to 2,954 pounds and its 3.7-liter V6 engine upgraded to 355 horsepower – just a little bit more than the street-legal Nismo Z. That power increase comes duee to a competition-spec exhaust and returned engine management. The RC also packs a race-spec clutch, flywheel, oil, transmission and diff coolers. Inside is a Recaro racing bucket with a six-point harness, Sparco steering wheel and carbon-fiber dash, plus a full FIA-regulation roll cage and fire extinguisher.
The package was designed from the get-go to meet FIA GT4 regulations, as well as World Challenge GTS specifications and Nissan says it can easily be modified to race in the Grand-Am GS class as well.
“If you’ve ever wanted to extend your love of the iconic Nissan Z-car from the street to the track, now is a good time to take action.” says the press release. What is certain is that I for sure cannot wait to see this baby in action.
