Everyone is a car critic, but up until now, only the automotive industry have been the ones that have been able to build the cars, up until now that is. For the first time ever Nissan has turned control of building their new Nissan 370Z version over to everyday Facebook Fans. While the fans made the suggestions, the Nissan team of engineers took the most popular suggestions and put them into an actual vehicle and from the looks of the final video; the fans did an excellent job. They could modify anything they wanted to include the suspension, interior, engine, wheels, tires and exterior.
The video series takes you through the stages of the build for this once in a lifetime chance to build a Nissan from the ground up. The first video features Steven Lam and his team of mechanics as they remove the front clip and hoses to take out the old engine. It was replaced with a 3.7 liter six cylinder mated to a Greddy twin turbo kit. This kit should up the horses to around 500. A Greddy Ti-C catback system was added to give the exhaust free flow. The second video features the suspension that was decided on and followed up by adding a Stoptech big brake kit. Finally the car was dyno’d, aesthetics were updated and the fuel/air mix tweaked.
Video three shows the final product in action. We’ll have to wait and see if the crowd likes what they created. This could be a whole new way of making cars and hopefully other automakers will begin to crowdsource some of their vehicles. This could lead to some really exciting changes in the car industry and what they produce.
