Nissan/NISMO reveals Nissan Z GT4, ready for the track in 2023
September 27, 2022



Yokohama, Japan – Continuing the story and legend of the fabled sports car, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. and Nissan Motorsports & Customizing Co., Ltd. (NMC) today revealed the Nissan Z GT4, based on the all-new Nissan Z.

GT4-spec racing machines are based on production vehicles, modified for severe competition use. To that end, NMC’s NISMO Racing Division took the street version of the new Z – which is receiving acclaim around the world – and tuned the VR30DDTT engine, optimized its chassis and suspension, enhanced its aerodynamics to the limit of regulations and created a cockpit that works for drivers of all types. This created a race car that is a Nissan Z in all aspects – accessible to enthusiast drivers and hard-core professionals.

"Motorsports for Nissan is an expression of our passion and unrivaled 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-category Nissan Z will be ready to write another chapter in the Nissan Z’s 50-plus-year legacy of speed."

The Nissan Z GT4 was developed at NISMO’s engineering facilities, at multiple track-test sessions and also as a test-entry vehicle which participated in the Fuji 24 Hour Race in June, as well as additional Super Taikyu Series events at Motegi and more.

Detailed vehicle specifications will be announced at the 2022 SEMA show in the United States, November 1 – 4. Vehicles deliveries will begin in the first half of 2023.

Let's hope some or most of the tuned suspension and chassis bits will trickle down to the street Nismo, not to mention aero parts.

Doesn't work that way. Someone may copy and paste some of the aero, but the suspension pieces on the GT4 cars are 3rd party racing component companies like Brembo, JRZ, Verus, etc.

The chassis are purpose built with cages designed in from the factory. They do not even come with VINs. I have driven track modified BMWs and GT4 BMWs. There is a world of difference. Not even close.

Hot looking car for sure!

GOD, I hope the NISMO Z looks just like this and has at least 50-75 more horsepower...🙏
I certainly wouldn't be against more horsepower, but how awesome would it be if the NISMO Z came with a sizeable weight reduction from the standard model? (as highly unlikely as that would be)

That said, I wonder how much the GT4 Z weighs. As a reference, the GT4 Supra is 2,976 lbs. Man, driving a ~3,000 lb Z race car around a track sounds like the absolute dream. As ultra badass as the GT500 Z is, I kinda have an affinity for GT4s, as staying alive while hotlapping in one seems like it would be more doable for a mere mortal like me.
