Nissan 370Z Project Clubsport 23

While American markets tend to want to hang onto car models for the long haul — we’re looking at you, Ford Mustang — even well past their prime, the European and Japanese makers tend to take a more cyclical approach, allowing models to die off in order to make room for new ones. Still, there are some vehicles that have a lot more staying power than you might expect. One such vehicle is the decade-old Nissan 370Z, which has just been infused with new life thanks to the marque’s Project Clubsport 23 SEMA concept build.

By all accounts, this Nissan 370Z looks like you might expect — a small, futuristic body with a gently-sloped silhouette and an elegant, if abbreviated tail end. Its exterior, however, betrays some very interesting things happening beneath the hood. For example, Nissan actually equipped it with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 from the Infiniti Q50 400 Red Sport — giving this little lightweight sports car a whopping 400 horsepower. To make it even more enticing, they also mated that engine to a 370Z Nismo manual transmission, marking the first time that power plant has been available without automatic shifting. And that’s just a start, as the whole thing is loaded with parts from Nissan Motorsports, making this a track-ready dart if there ever was one. Unfortunately, it’s a one-off concept … for now. With enough interest, Nissan has announced that they may offer this as a kit available for purchase sometime in the future.
