SEMA Show – Nissan Global Time Attack TT 370Z

3 years ago

The 2019 SEMA Show is likely one of the few times people will see the Nissan Global Time Attack TT 370Z standing still!

The creators of the extreme 750-plus horsepower 370Z – Z1 Motorsports of Carrollton – working in conjunction with the Nissan Motorsports team – plan on competing with the vehicle throughout the 2020 Time Attack racing season. As one of the group’s wildest purpose-built Z makeovers in its long history of Nissan projects, every aspect had to be functional and durable. It also had to be low weight.

The transformation started with a stripped, acid-dipped 370Z unibody with the structure shaved of any unneeded pieces. A full cage was added inside for safety & structural rigidity, while the exterior was treated to a full custom carbon fiber aerodynamic package, including a 3D front splitter, rear diffuser & sideboards.

As the bodywork was underway, the stock 370Z VQ series 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine was completely competition prepped, including the addition of Garrett GTX 3076 turbochargers, new fuel management & electronics systems. Plus the Z1 Motorsports race exhaust system. A HGT Precision 6-speed sequential transmission, Tilton custom clutch and NISMO GT-R Pro 1.5 way differential help direct power to the wheels.

Likewise the suspension & steering were completely custom-built for Time Attack competition using NISMO racing components.

A custom Brembo brake system, NISMO radiator & multiple oil, transmission & differential cooling systems were installed.

RAYS Volk ZE40 Diamond Dark Gunmetal 18×11-inch aluminum-alloy wheels & Yokohama Advan A052 315/30R18 high performance tires complete the handling package.

Inside, a single OMP HRC-R Carbon Air FIA race seat gives the driver a commanding position in front of the custom-fabricated instrument panel. A quick release steering wheel, NISMO Competition Race Harness and safety nets are part of the vehicle’s safety system.

If you are in Las Vegas & going to SEMA, you can see this vehicle on the Nissan North America Booth #40257; located in the Lower South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
