Super GT is Japan’s premier touring-car series wherein heavily modified production cars compete. In the case of this Z race car, it has been given a widebody kit and a lower stance. It sports a host of aerodynamic upgrades including new front and rear diffusers, side skirts, and that massive wing out back.
As for what’s under the hood, the Nissan Z GT500 will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged in-line-four engine following the Super GT’s GT500 class regulations.
“The Nissan Z GT500 symbolizes Nissan’s spirit of taking on challenges and bringing excitement to life,” said Nissan COO Ashwani Gupta. “Through our racing efforts we continue to innovate our cars and we race to win with the same daring we have displayed so many times over the years.”
“We are entering the 2022 Super GT series with our all-new Nissan Z GT500 car and our huge passion for motorsports,” said Nismo president and CEO Takao Katagiri. “We hope that our fans will continue to passionately support the Nissan and Nismo motorsport teams.”
