Nissan has finally wrapped up work on its crowd-sourced project 370Z. The company put the sports car on a dyno for final tuning and wound up with somewhere around 504 horsepower. That's not too shabby given the jump in gusto was gleaned from a few bolt-on parts.

Nissan then set about fitting the steering wheel and shift nob as chosen by the teaming internet masses. A set of custom Recaro seats also replaced factory buckets. With the interior squared away, the company turned its eye toward ironing out the exterior.

A set of lightweight forged Volk wheels took the place of the factory rollers, and a new matte grey vinyl wrap took care of the standard yellow paint. Nissan debuted its creation at Z Dayz last weekend. Scroll down for a look at the video for yourself.

      I agree that Nissan should definitely offer up a higher-spec'd Z with a turbo or supercharger from the factory. I'd pay 50K+ for that easily, especially knowing it'd offer a warranty. VQ37s take very well to boost with stock internals. Our shop has built tons of them and as long as you keep boost conservative where you're putting about 430-450WHP -depending on dyno- (that's over 500HP), you can enjoy a very streetable 3200lb sports car that is well within the ranks of many supercars out there. I'm toying with the idea of supercharging my 370Z, but I am very happy with its added power just from all of the bolt-ons + tune (340WHP), and its balance with a set of springs + new a pair of bars front and back.

        no. you don't understand. "crowd-sourcing" is a lottery system, in which hundreds of people complete spec-work (no gain), while one lucky winner gets fame a cash. This- was not crowd-sourcing. Playing up the term, was a dumb marketing gimmick. Your disagreement simply makes you wrong.

      This is not crowd-sourcing. It's social media driven. Crowd sourcing implies that it was funded by the fans. It's shift knob, not shift nob. And it's teeming masses, not teaming masses. Come on, Autoblog. This is the worst written piece I've seen in a while. Spell check can't overcome stupid.

      Zack Bowmen is a noob and obviously not a nob. That's why he can't get his shift knob to hob nob him right.

      It would be such an awesome Idea to put into production a "top shelf" model turbo Z. It will give the 370 guys some sweet "hand me downs", something that they never did for us 350 guys!
