If you don't know about these cars please read on. I've been in the 350z community since 2005 and have owned many 350's, 370z and a GTR in that time.
There was only about 1500 of these cars built in Japan. They were not available in the UK.
They have the 3.5L HR engine in them.
These Nismo versions were sent to the Autech factory and had extra strengthening carried out, extra seam welds and reinforcement in key areas.
They have the nismo v3 body kit
Forged rays alloys which are 18" fronts and 19"rears.
Yamaha suspension damper with nismo springs
Nismo exhaust system
Yamaha front and rear chassis damper bars behind front bumper and below rear strut tower.
Nismo gauge cluster
The interior is slightly different to the standard 350z. It has grey with red stitching on the seats, door cards and steering wheel.
This model is even Rarer due to having the auto tiptronic gearbox. It also has been fitted with carbon fibre paddles in Japan to make gear changing more fun.
Car currently has 36000 miles on it.
I've just had it fully resprayed in the original factory colour.
A previous owner had someone roll into the rear of him and replaced the rear bumper with a fibreglass version. This wasn't fitting of the car so I bought a genuine v3 bumper and had it professionally fitted. While doing this we notice the metal skin under the bumper was dented in so I have it removed and a new piece welded in to keep it all perfect even the bits you don't see. I have all pictures to show the work carried out by the body shop.
The car also had the spoiler, roof, mirrors painted dark grey which did look nice but I wanted to return it to a more factory look. Bumper, bonnet and roof had some stone chips so I ended up just getting the full car done in the factory paint so now it's perfect.
The car has being mapped using Uprev by Chris at Dynatune in East Kilbride making 276whp so 317bhp.
The car is totally standard apart from Torqen high flow cats and modified rear back box for more noise.
An up to date pioneer stereo and I've replaced to rubber intake pipes to silicone as the rubbers ones started to crack.
I've also replaced the gallery gaskets which are weak on all the early HR engine cars.
These cars are only going up in value now and getting harder to find in Japan. Last one I seen with this mileage was £25k plus import fees, tax and vat.
In America there are now selling for $40,000 for low mileage ones.
A great car to invest in and enjoy as well.
