Underneath the stripped and acid-dipped body, 3D front splitter, rear diffuser and massive wing, there is a Nissan 370Z. More specifically, this is the Global Time Attack TT 370Z built by Z1 Motorsports of Carrollton, Georgia, on display at the Nissan booth at this year’s SEMA Show. It’s one of the firm’s most aggressive projects, custom-built for time attack competition. The Nissan 370Z is reportedly on its way out (and soon to be replaced), but this project aims to show there’s still some life in the old sports car yet.
To that end, Z1 Motorsports went through the original 370Z, changing just about everything. It has Nismo front upper control arms, tie rod ends, camber arms, traction rods, toe rods, differential and subframe bushings, extended wheel studs, sway bar, titanium lug nuts, and R35 GT-R front knuckles and hubs. Z1 also fitted BC Racing NA Z1 Spec ZR coilover shocks, RAYS Volk ZE40 wheels and Yokohama Advan A052 high-performance tires. Z1’s own brake lines, engine mounts, driveshaft, down pipes and race exhaust help boost the Global Time Attack TT 370Z well beyond the stock 332 horsepower.
Even more upgrades
In fact, this time attack machine produces more than double that output. The modified version of Nissan’s VQ-series 3.7-liter V6 has a Garrett GTX 3076 turbochargers, a new fuel management system and a remapped ECU, among the extensive array of upgrades. The end result is 750 horsepower send to the rear wheels through a HGT Precision six-speed sequential manual transmission. A Tilton custom clutch and Nismo GT-R Pro 1.5-way limited slip differential help get power to the rear wheels as needed.
Apart from the lightweight acid-dipped unibody, Z1 also installed a wide range of carbon fiber. A full aerodynamics package on the Global Time Attack TT 370Z includes an APR GT-1000 wing, as well as the front splitter, sideboards and rear diffuser.
The team will compete with the Global Time Attack TT 370Z throughout the 2020 time attack season. Before that, it’s on display now at Nissan’s booth at the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Stay tuned for more updates from the Las Vegas Convention Center on TFLcar.com, including several videos.
