Nissan 350Z Dragster coming to Santa Pod

The Santa Pod raceway located in the United Kingdom will be the host of the first ever Pro Class 350Z to be seen in Europe. The FIA European Finals will take place at the Santa Pod raceway between the 10th and 13th of September, so we are just a couple of weeks away from this event. This fabulous creation called Project Zed was created by a guy called John Bradshaw. The Project Zed gets its power from a V6 3.5 liter Nissan 350Z engine that has an output of almost 1900 horsepower. Just imagine what could be done from higher capacity engines if from an engine with a 3.5 liter capacity these people managed to draw out such a huge power.

Mister John Bradshaw stated that ``It`s incredible to finally have the car ready to test now and we are all very excited by its potential. It really is a car that is capable of setting records around the world and just shows what a Nissan engine is capable of producing.``

The Project Zed will be the only car with a Japanese engine to run in the Mainstream drag racing at this year`s Santa Pod event. The hand built dragster is capable of going from 0 to 100 km/h in just 1.2 seconds while being able to go from 0 to 270 km/h in only 4.1 seconds, a time needed by the fastest super cars in the world to reach 100 km/h. This is not all, the Nissan 350Z dragster manages to go from 0 to 346 km/h in 6.6 seconds. Absolutely stunning performances managed by a modified 3.5 liter Nissan 350Z engine.

As you might have wondered until this point, the Project Zed creation is supported by Nissan. The Japanese automaker will actually have a stand at Santa Pod in which they will show their latest sport cars, the 370Z and GT-R.
