Recently I stopped to think what was one of the most race car like experiences that I have driven and it got me thinking about the Nissan 350Z Nismo S-Tune GT. Yes I have driven faster things and cars that are technically much better. But there was just a big focus on simplicity in the 350Z that gave a rewarding race car feel.
Behind The Wheel
The Nissan 350Z Nismo S-Tune GT has lots of race car similarities that you can see from the moment you first move off in the car. We know that the car has been heavily modified, and the transformation to the driving experience is unreal.
Driving the GT gives a very raw experience. The clutch is extremely heavy, far from anything you would experience in a road car. The steering is also heavy and the gear shift is very tight. This helps with giving the driver uncensored feedback via the controls. The way that this changes the driving experience is overwhelming, the car genuinely feels like a race car, which further changes the style in which you drive it.
Summary – Nissan 350Z Nismo S-Tune GT
The experience that the Nissan 350Z Nismo S-Tune GT provides is legendary, you feel every mechanical movement via the controls. You need to put a lot of effort in on the steering wheel and pedals to get the most from the car, but it feels so rewarding whilst doing so, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
