That one is still in Australia. The one at Omori factory can be distinguished by the letter "P" in front of the number which stands for "prototype", I believe they made 2 of these. Here is one photo of the plate fm spedhunter's feature on the Nismo one.

good knowledge

so P001 (Omori) is not the same as 001 (Australia)

therefore we have 19 + 2 to catalogue - Is that correct?

It's what Ferrari say . But in reality it's a different story. For the F50 they said they would make 349 (1 less than they thought they could sell), but there are around 420 out there. Enzo, 399 + the 1 pope enzo, but there are over 540 cars estimated out there (!). F40 they where open about, meant to sell 399 I think, but 1315 where produced according to Ferrari themselves (the F50/Enzo numbers are unofficial). And it continues on for almost all their ''exclusive'' models.

Found another article which claims that the number of cars(19) was including the 2 prototypes:

A moment of silence, please: NISMO R34 GT-R Z-tune sales officially end

Which means only 17 were available to the public

okay - good find.

Where is the second prototype? is this P002 ?


and what number are the public 17? 001 to 017?


Any current owners / previous owners out there want to fill in a few gaps?

Question Do old magazine features help?

WOW!




I have no idea where any of these rare cars currently reside as the BCNR33's are more my kinda thing but I do hold some kind of weird fascination where the Z-Tune II's are concerned due to the obvious DNA of pioneering parts that first started life on the UK Middlehurst R33's.





Anyways.....

Back in July 2005, The now defunct "J-Tuner" magazine had BNR34-P001 on their front cover and a road test of said Beast :-











And like I said in the other topic, Sometime later during 2006 High Performance Imports magazine road tested the recently completed R34-Z-016.....









Plus what can be assumed (if these were actually built in numerical order) was perhaps R34-Z-017 having its engine fitted, the White/Grey primer one on the rotisserie being maybe R34-Z-018 and the Blue shell the final one which was R34-Z-019 possibly?!

HTH!

Which we can all see BNR34-P001 is very different to the other R34-Z-001 chassis tag....



The deformations in the Prototypes one looks hand stamped compared to the engraved customers cars version.

JM2PW!

He does post on this forum. I'm sure if he wants to share details he will. It's not my place to say.

I'd love to see it one day! It's all the little touches that make it so special.

We could have a table? (Mook)


001 - silver, for sale recently in London? 35K miles?

010 - midnight purple - Australia - 3000km


etc
