This Z will enter the 2023 Fuji 24 hour race for further testing


thoughts on the new front and hood?

more cut out front bumper for extra cooling and the hood features revised slatted vents instead of the mesh openings of the current GT4 race car

The grille cuts look asymmetrical, kinda strange. The headlights look a bit like too much mascara, but I kinda like the fender trim.

There is a cooler exposed on the left side. Not sure whats on the right because of the shadowing as NISMO only released this single pic tonight

Looks like a hack job, literally.

I always thought the Z's profile looked a bit Aston Martin. Now they try to mimic the shape of the Aston Martin grille.

Interesting in that the production Nismo looks like it has a wider grill similar to that. I wonder why they just don’t use that Instead of the mr fix-it version?

but for the Z it might be a matter of just function with the additional cooler placement now being exposed to air

Pretty sure that's the case. It was just a joke about trying to mimic Aston.
