After a few pictures of the celebratory BRE 370Z , we were able to receive a few details on the 370Z as the old BRE members got together for a reunion-type weekend. The guest of honor at this revelry; a model built to commemorate the arrival of the first Datsun 240Z on the US market 40 years ago.
The BRE 370Z is painted in the now famous red, white, and blue BRE paint scheme designed by Peter Brock. Brock and driver, John Morton, were part of the celebration weekend at Road Atlanta that lead to a few trial runs of the BRE 370Z.
“To be able to gather with many of my old BRE crew members at Road Atlanta was truly a special occasion,” said Brock. ”It was fantastic to see so many BRE tribute cars and to have so many fans join us for the celebration was very gratifying.”
Peter Brock was very excited to be able to get behind the wheel of the BRE 370Z, but hopes to be able to drive it "as it should be driven," adding that the 370Z has "strong, sculpted shapes" that allowed him to display a bold color scheme.
The BRE 370Z, however, is not just a show car, it’s first and foremost built for the track. As is appropriate to commemorate the championship car, it was built to current SCCA T2 racecar regulations and will see track duty later this year.
