Crowdsourced Nissan 370Z vs. RB26 Datsun 240Z

Nissan USA did an interesting project last year to promote the 370Z as a tuner car. They crowdsourced the tuning decisions on their Facebook page. Fans got to vote for which modifications went on the car. This competition that was put on with the help of Motor Trend is the final phase of the project 370Z. Fans got to vote for another tuned car to take on the car they helped build in a series of competitions. The car that was picked is an enthusiast built Datsun 240Z powered by an RB26 turbocharged inline-6 from a Nissan Skyline GT-R. Here’s how it went down:

Nissan also released these three videos last year to show the project 370Z getting built:

Part 1: Installing the performance parts

Part 2: Tuning and Design

Part 3: Reveal at ZdayZ
