Over the weekend Nissan unveiled the BRE 370Z at Road Atlanta, to celebrate 40 years since Peter Brock, John Morton and the Southern California-based Brock Racing Enterprises (BRE) team clinched the SCCA Championships, ending a long-sanding dominance by German and British sports cars. Painted in the now iconic red, white and blue BRE colors (just like the original 240Z race car), this sports car is an homage not only to the racers and their car, but to all that the Z has become.
The car itself is built to SCCA T2 regs and has a “old school” manual transmission combined with Nissan’s very modern SynchroRev Match system. Based on the 40th Anniversary 370Z it also gets Nissan’s full 370Z Sport Package, including front and rear lips, 19-inch Rays wheels, upgraded brakes and a limited-slip differential. Plus, there’s a long list of minor trim upgrades like red door panel inserts, red stitching on the center stack and shift boot, as well as 40th Anniversary badging inside and out.
Nissan will show the car at several Z Club events this year, including ZCon 2010, which makes its way to Nashville this year from July 28 to August 1.
While there are not plans (yet) to put the BRE 370Z into production, the 40th Anniversary Edition 370Z on which it’s based is available, with just 1,000 units being made.
