Nissan 370Z Project Clubsport 23: A twin-turbo V6 coupe you can’t have

The Nissan 370Z Project Clubsport 23 was unveiled at SEMA 2018, and is a track only sports car that ditches the standard 3.7L V6 for a 3L twin-turbo V6.


Built by MA Motorsports, the Project Clubsport 23 is a track only vehicle based on the 2012 Nissan 370Z Nismo.

MA Motorsports took out the car’s 350hp (261kW) VQ37VHR 3.7L V6 engine, and replaced it with a 400hp (298kW) VR30DDTT 3L twin-turbo V6 engine.

For the first time the VR30DDTT is mated to a manual transmission, the original car’s 6-speed. The Project Clubsport 23 has a specially developed clutch disc, cover, and flywheel, and Nismo GT LSD Pro-Carbon 2-way diff and an MA Motorsports Differential Cooler.

There’s also an AMS Performance Cold Air Intake kit, Z1 Motorsports blow-off valves, a bespoke 76mm dual exhaust system that exits through the rear license panel, an AMS Performance heat exchanger, an MA Motorsports power steering cooler, and Z1 Motorsports radiator and intercooler silicone coolant hoses.

Other upgrades include Nismo HC Street/Track brake pads, Z1 Motorsports 2-piece slotted rotors, Nismo stainless steel brake lines, Nismo suspension, 3-piece brace set, KW coil-over shocks kit, and Eibach rear springs.

The Project Clubsport 23 rides on Rays 18″ wheels and Hankook RS4 285/35 tires.
