Japan, that's it. I can never remember what the German one is called. But yeah, that one's JDM only

I think I could spend $25K on Lucy and have her looking hotter than that....don't really dig on the nose or the butt, sideskirts are OK and I don't think those vents look right where they are behind the door panels...that's just my opinion tho...Wheels are pretty OK, is that the Nismo wing version 2? The floating looking one? I think it detracts from the look of the Z. OH WELL maybe I am the only one w/ that opinion but not worth the extra $25K unless it makes mad more HP than our Z's....

I like the vents if they let out heat, but most likely they don't. And as far as non body changes go, you get some of the NA S-Tune Nismo mods. Most of the increased price is for the fancy little GT emblem

Looks like a Porsche GT-2...almost.

So why do they call it a GT? To make more money? Hmm...

Like Terri said, for $25k I could make my Z look kickass and more unique than the S tune GT. Most of that would be spent on engine mods, then the bodykit and paint.

You could easily make a much better looking (and faster) version of the Z for an extra 25K. This one isn't much of a difference as far as performance goes... almost as bad as the dealer markup on NISMO Z's...

Yeah it's a limited edition Z available only in Japan. Nissan had to make so many modifications to the factory Fairlady Z to make it competitive in the JGTC 500 class to the point where the car couldn't qualify as a "production" car. Hence, Nissan had to produce, correct me if I'm wrong, 25 of these cars to compete. The article's in Road and Track, I believe. By the way, the car's got 300 hp.

That doesn't make any sense to me, because adding 13 horsepower wouldn't make the JGTC car any closer to "production" in my book but I'll take your word for it.

As for the 300 HP number... like I said that's only 13 horsepower, which is about what you'd get from adding an intake and exhaust.

Would an intake, exhaust, and an ugly body kit cost you 30 grand? That's the question all these people driving this car should ask themselves... right before they punch themselves in the face for being a moron.

Sorry for the confusion. The modifications that I was referring to were mainly to the aerodynamics of the car. I mean giving the Z an extra 13 hp wouldn't help it out that much considering the JGTC 500 class is limited to cars with close to 500 hp (hence the name). The JGTC 500 Fairlady Z looked so different than the factory Z so Nissan had to produce 25 350Z that looked more like the JGTC car.
