The Mighty R34 Z Tune - The Facts & The Fiction

As suggested by K66 SKY - we need a Z Tune thread as its very clear than many do not know the true facts about the Z.

Please feel free to add photographs, sightings, owners please come forward (don't be shy) with driving experiences, modifications plans, what is your car number, etc, etc. and do any of the Z Tunes have the very rare Nismo Cigarette Lighter Kill Switch - a long shot, but worth asking!



I will start it off.


There are 19 official R34 Z Tunes, 18 are silver, 1 is Midnight purple.


Over to you guys!

11/12? Were handpicked by Nismo with under 30k kms (iirc) and then stripped etc by Nismo.

The others 7/8? were converted customers cars.

Maybe the 20th car that was never completed, became the base for the Clubman Spec ? Just a thought.

Or maybe they wanted to do copy the Ferrari Production Method where they aim to produce e.g 250 amount of cars less 1... (so 249-I'm sure I heard something like that on Top Gear years ago).

Any chance of a few details - not after a post code and house number


what edition number is it?

mileage?

country / county?



We could have a table? (Mook)


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

010 - midnight purple - Australia - 3000km


etc
