Where are the Z-Tune's now??

Seems like there isn't something "tracking" where the 20 Z-Tune's are currently, so maybe we should get one started?

May become helpful for the next generation of Skyline/GTR nuts, or even the generation after that where they may end up becoming garage queens and never used .

Are there any that are just kept in storage? Any that are actually used properly?

Rain has his one,and there another one in Aus/NZ? which had an aftermarket ICE fitted etc and removed, and I'm sure there was a genuine one in MP3 which was done by factory for a loyal customer that was for sale? Though I thought all 20 Z-Tune's were done in Silver?

Well,my food is here so i'm off to eat , but lets discuss!

Would be interesting to know how there being used. I suspect the majority are kept as a collectors item, don't blame them really.

Nissan don't make them bud and from what I read recently on here NISMO will spec a car to pretty much a Z-Tune if you ask them, but it'll never be a Z-Tune . Wonder if Nissan/NISMO would consider a tailor package similar to what McLaren now offer as do Ferrarri?

Yeah i know it's Nismo, but i would need to contact Nissan first to make me a brand new shell to start from, as i believe the Z-TUNES still have the same shell as any other R34 But true it would never be a proper Z-Tune. I guess if you were to offer Nissan/Nismo enough money they would make you an outrageous car of your choosing and a complete one off. Guess i will just have to keep dreaming for now

Even the Z-Tunes that Nismo made didn't use a brand new shell. I believed that Nismo bought used R34 that has less than 10k kms on odo and check the condition first before turning them into Z-Tunes, but I could be wrong.

There's 1 Z-Tune here in Indonesia, I will post pics here when I have enough post. My buddy saw another one in Thailand when he was there to tune a 400R.

Your correct, all Z Tunes are all very low millage secondhand cars that were stripped and rebuilt to nismo specs. Basically a new car given the amount of work that went into them.

There's defo a genuine Z-Tune in Japan still (well there is probably more of them not just one). It has even been offered for sale a while ago. Think it was Miguel from Newera Imports being in contact with the seller.

Also during my 8 years of skylineownership I have seen two more Z-Tunes for sale. Genuine ones. One of them was in Australia and one of them in USA if I remember correctly.

Rain, how does the Z tune compare with the Endless 32 you had built performance & handling wise, if you've had the opportunity to drive the 32 much?
