Although the Z is relatively new, Nissan didn’t waste any time getting it into motorsports such as Super GT and endurance racing. Now, the Nissan Z GT4 has officially been unveiled.

Unlike purpose-built race machines, GT4 cars are based on production models but modified for competition use. This makes them accessible to both enthusiasts and professionals.

“Motorsports for Nissan is an expression of our passion and unrivaled expertise,” said Nissan COO Ashwani Gupta. “The Nissan Z continues to maintain its position as an exciting sports car that fascinates drivers with its driving dynamics and flexible powertrain. We are confident that this track-ready GT4-category Nissan Z will be ready to write another chapter in the Nissan Z’s 50-plus-year legacy of speed.”

Development was done by Nismo with multiple on-track sessions, and a test vehicle even raced at the 24 Hours of Fuji and other Super Taikyu events. The official specs will be announced at the SEMA Show in the US this November, while the car will begin delivery to customers in the first half of 2023.
