This Is The Nissan Z Race Car The World Deserves @ Top Speed

It’s how it would look in real life

This is very close to what we expect the GT500 version of the real car to look like

The video showcases JONSIBAL’s vision of a Nissan Z competition version.

The project is inspired by Nissan’s GT500 racecars from the Japanese Grand Touring Series.

The car is actually inspired by Leen Customs pins while managing to stay true to Nissan’s racing heritage.

JONSIBAL’s Z is finished in black matt, which further accentuates the silver katana that separates the roof from the side windows. We hope the design elements will be kept for a real-life racing version of the car. You can also see the number 23 on the side, which has a symbolic meaning for the brand. In Japanese “23” is actually pronounced “Nee San” (or something like that), so you can see why many of Nissan’s race cars featured the number 23 throughout the years.

At the same time, it stays true to Nissan’s motorsport herritage

The Z’s body features many elements fro mthe 2007 NISMO F airlady Z and GT-R GT500 racers

JONSIBAL has done a great job at replicating a Nissan GT500 racecar. You get the obligatory flared fenders with a floating design that channel air along the side of the body, towards the big rear wing and massive rear diffuser. It’s actually very reminiscent of the 2007 NISMO Fairlady Z GT500 or the NISMO GT-R GT500 racers.

The independent designer actually did this for the launch of Leen Customs’ new pins that are dropping in at the Formula Drift Long Beach. This particular project, based on the Nissan Z is inspired by the rare Chase edition, of which only 100 will be made. We think it looks awesome, as it is a perfect continuation of Nissan’s GT500 racecars.
