THE Nissan introduced its latest racing car, the Nissan Z GT4.
The new GT4 is based on the latest production Nissan Z and was developed at NISMO's engineering facilities especially for racing.
For this, the Nismo Racing department tuned the engine, optimized the chassis and suspension and improved the aerodynamics in accordance with the prescribed rules.
A prototype version of the model was raced in the Super Taikyu Series in Japan in the ST-Q class, reserved for approved vehicles that do not fall under any established technical regulations.
The gasoline-powered prototype finished in the top ten of the endurance race.
“Motorsport for Nissan is an expression of our passion and unparalleled expertise. The Nissan Z continues to maintain its position as an exciting sports car that fascinates drivers with its driving dynamics and flexible powertrain," said Nissan COO Ashwani Gupta.
"We are confident that this track-ready GT4-class Nissan Z will be ready to write another chapter in the Nissan Z's 50-year legacy of speed," said Gupta.
Detailed specifications of the Nissan Z GT4 will be announced at the SEMA SHOW 2002, which takes place in the United States in November this year, and deliveries are planned for the first half of 2023.
It is worth remembering that the Nissan Z GT4 coupe will be eligible to compete in any series of races that all GT4 class vehicles participate.
