    This isn’t a car, so much as it is a moving set of aftermarket pieces designed to show Nissan 370Z owners just how wild you can get. Welcome to Project Clubsport 23.

    Of course, Nissan 370Z owners need no further explanation of just how tuneable the big-hearted old bruiser is. We suspect they might not have realised just how orange they could make it, mind…

    Anyway, this one’s been fettled quite a bit. Nissan Motorsports and MA Motorsports used a 2012 370Z as a base for its upcoming SEMA show star, and swapped out the 3.7-litre nat-asp V6 for a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 more commonly used by Infiniti. Here, it produces 400bhp.

    There’s a cold air intake kit, motorsport blow-off valves, a bespoke dual exhaust system and upgrades to the factory cooling and steering systems. MA also developed a clutch disc, cover and flywheel assembly in order to keep the Z’s six-speed manual gearbox intact. Difficult because that 3.0-litre twin-turbo is normally only mated to an automatic.
