Nissan Turns The 370Z Into A Huge Snowmobile

It’s only February and our Christmas list already has a new addition; the Nissan 370Zki.

Unveiled prior to the Chicago Auto Show, this one-off 370Z has been overhauled and turned into a giant snowmobile. Why? Why not.

To create the 370Zki, Nissan removed the sports car’s driveline, raised the ride height by three inches, created custom mounts for the rear springs, and bolted on a set of three-inch wheel spaces. Additionally, the brake lines and exhaust were rerouted while modifications were also made to the rear wheel wells. With these changes done, Nissan engineers were able to fit tracks sourced from American Track Truck at the rear axle.

Up front, a pair of huge skis has been fitted thanks to similar wheel spacers to the rear and custom engine and transmission mounts. To ensure the 370Zki can tackle any terrain, a skid plate is also found at the front.

Both the engine and transmission remain stock. As such, the six-cylinder delivers 332 hp and receives its drive from a seven-speed automatic transmission.

Obviously, Nissan has no intention of bringing the 370Zki to production but such a vehicle isn’t entirely new territory for the brand. In 2016, it fitted snow tracks to customized examples of the Pathfinder, Murano, and Rogue.

    Obviously striking!
    I like the fact that they didn’t just “went the easy and straight forward” and use one of those attachments to the wheels to create this.

      Nowhere. The current model isn’t going to be face lifted or replaced anytime soon.

    Even with the modifications, those Mattracks are dangerously close to the bodywork.

    Why the 370Z convertible? Now Nissan made it even more ugly.

  • Bo Hanan

    Did Nissan ever explain WHY THE DOOR HANDLE ON THE 370Z IS SO DAMN BIG?

  • LWOAP

    For when you don’t have anything new to show for your current lineup, you throw some skis and tracks on a 370z, then push it out the door. Pathetic.
