‘The world’s first crowdsourced 370Z’ has been revealed by Nissan US, featuring comprehensive modifications selected by the carmaker's Facebook fans.

Known as ‘Project Z’, the car was enhanced through modifications selected by user-votes on the Nissan Performance Facebook page.

The project aimed to “expand on the already outstanding performance and style of the Nissan 370Z with a balance of street and track ready modification", Nissan US Marketing boss Jon Brancheau said.

Since the project was launched at the Chicago Auto Show in February, the facelifted 2013 370Z has been transformed into what Nissan calls ‘the ultimate Z track car’.

The build was split into stages, with users presented with modification options for drivetrain, exhaust, suspension, brakes, wheels and aesthetic detailing.

These modifications were kept within reason by offering Facebook users three choices for each stage of modification.

This meant that comments like “can we have a V8?” and the suggestion of replacing the 3.7 litre VQ37VHR engine with the GT-R’s 3.8 litre VR38DETT twin-turbo V6 (as with the recent Juke R) missed the cut.

The chosen modifications included a bolt-on 500HP (373kW) GReddy twin turbo kit and Ti-C cat-back exhaust, KW coilover suspension kit, StopTech brake upgrade, and Volk TE37SL wheels.

Interior upgrades included Recaro seats, a partial re-trim, steering wheel, gearknob and gauge upgrade.

The base car’s Ultimate Yellow paintwork was then hidden with a matte-grey vinyl body wrap.

Progress of the build was broadcast via the Facebook page, demonstrating the tuning capacity for the iconic Z car.

Head on over and have a look for yourself.
