It seems Nissan Motorsport engineers have been fiddling around in the shop lately and have combined a Nissan 370Z with a street-legal 370Z Nismo Coupe to create the new 370 Nismo RC. This new race car conforms to FIA GT4 and World Challenge GTS class specifications and can even be modified to compete in the Grand Am Continental Tire Challenge GS class. Nissan has already begun taking orders.

The new Nismo 370Z RC is significantly lighter than its production variant, coming in at 2,954 lbs to the Nismo 370Z’s 3,314 lbs and the standard 370Z’s 3,245 lbs. The Nismo 370Z RC is powered by a 3.7-liter VQ-series V6 engine that delivers a total of 355 HP at 7,400 rpm with 276 lbs of torque at 5,200 rpm, 5 HP more than the Nismo 370Z. Helping the engine along is a Nismo race exhaust, a Nismo tuned ECM, and high capacity Nismo clutch, flywheel, engine oil, transmission, and differential coolers. The engine is also stocked with numerous hose and connector upgrades to meet the rigorous demands of track use.

The new Nismo 370Z RC comes equipped with an FIA-compliant roll cage, a fire extinguisher, a Recaro racing seat with 6-point racing harness, a Sparco racing steering wheel, a revamped, and a race-ready carbon fiber switch panel.

To be honest, I’m not impressed with this Nismo RC. The platform and design of this vehicle are not really stunning unlike with the other coupe. Moreover, I think they still need to boost more its engine.

It looks like their Nissan GT-R, but it doesn’t matter at all. Anyway, I noticed that its interior looks so outdated, and I must say that its engine is not really good enough for this sports car.

Yeah! I have to agree that the engine specification of this one is not really enough for this sports car. However, the exterior of this one, is absolutely looking so great in spite of having only a simple design.

Well, I don’t think that the engine of this one, will only be good enough for this one. I just really don’t think that it can give a better performance on this race car.

I wonder if it had also a comfortable interior? Furthermore, I can say that this Nissan is absolutely so striking in its aesthetic design, and I love the decent body paint that they use on it.
