"Possessing improved aerodynamics; a special Z by NISMO and Gran Turismo."
Based on the Z33 350Z (Fairlady Z in Japan) and modified by the skilled crew at Nismo, Nissan's motorsports and tuning division, this Nismo Fairlady Z S-Tune Concept by Gran Turismo was customized with a batch of S-Tune concept parts to offer a sportier driving experience without sacrificing ride comfort out on the city streets.
The S1 engine received various upgraded including a new camshaft, valve springs, and an engine management system. Add new sports car catalytic converter and Weldina muffler to the mix and you've got an enhanced engine that belted out a full 300 PS.
On the aerodynamics side, the Z achieved zero lift in stock form, so new aero enhancements co-developed by both the Gran Turismo team and Nismo helped generate downforce at both ends of the vehicle for increased high-speed stability. Wind tunnel tests were also performed that led to further improvements in lessening surface drag.
The suspension used the normal-geometry S-Tune kit that ensured ride comfort in normal driving, but the drive was sure to notice how the car exhibited less body roll when cornering, taking turns in a flatter manner.
Even the braking system was enhanced: While the components remained stock, the ABS was reconfigured to increase the braking force without leading to an inadvertent engagement of the anti-lock system.
