New Nissan Only Sportscar Series and Japan Auto Salon...
Two fairly noteable announcments from Nissan today. The first and more interesting is the announcement of a 370Z only series. Dubbed the "Nissan 370Z Nismo Z-Challenge Spec" indicates that it will also be a spec series with cars likely all being produced by Nissan in house and sold to the race teams. At $165K a pop for the 370Z racecar shown by Nissan in '12 it won't be cheap and I don't think it will be in the US either given the photos of the car given as an example are right hand drive. Additionally, Nissan already has the NASA 350Z series here in the US so adding a 370Z spec series really wouldn't make much sense.
Where more details and an example of the 370Z racecar will be found centers around the second piece of Nissan news. The 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon will see Nissan bring out a handful of custom vehicles for display. This years Nissan provided vehicles will include 10 vehicles to include the Deltawing racer making its Japanese debut, a Leaf with a NISMO performance package, the Motul Autech GT-R racecar, a GT-R GT3 race car and the aforementioned 370Z spec series racecar.
Catch it if your in Japan and we'll see where this 370Z series ends up.
