Will this be the best Nissan 370Z yet?
I present to you the Nissan Project Clubsport 23. This is what Nissan are bringing to SEMA in Las Vegas this year and it is going to be the best 370Z we have ever seen.
The previous 370Z wasn't the greatest but this new and revised one will have a new 3.0L twin turbo V6 (found also in the Infiniti Q50 400 Red Sport) which will give the Clubsport 23 around 400bhp. This might sound good already, but Nissan has also put the manual transmission from the Nismo into this car and it is the first time this engine and gearbox have been mated together. This should be interesting...
As you can see, the interior is basic but much like that of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS in the way that it's just the driver and the machine. This looks rather plush and Aston Martin like which I find to be very un-Nissan but I really like what I see.
The thing that really grabs my attention here is the exhaust outlets on either side of the license plate. That is going to cause mayhem and looks fantastic.
If Nissan can get this to shoot flames then this may just be a brilliant little car. In addition to this, Nissan have upgraded the suspension as well as including KW variant coilovers and Eibach springs for better handling around corners. We will see upgraded Nismo brake pads and some wicked looking Rays wheels to top it off.
It's as if MSO have got hold of a 370Z and made it fully track focussed, and I love it.
