Nissan has unveiled the Nissan 370Zki concept, which is debuting this week at the Chicago Auto Show. As its name suggests, the 370Zki is ready to tackle the ski slopes, since its wheels have been replaced by front skis and rear snow tracks.
“The Nissan 370Zki continues our recent tradition of bringing imaginative winter vehicle concepts to the Chicago Auto Show. With the Nissan Z’s long heritage of motorsports competition, the 370Zki seemed like a natural combination,” said Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc. “Prior to its debut here in Chicago, we put the 370Zki through its paces on the slopes in Wyoming where its performance heritage really came through.”
At the rear the “370Zki” – pronounced “370-Ski” features Dominator tracks from American Track Truck. To make room for the tracks the 370Zki received a custom lift kit that lifts the 370Z three inches. The rear wheel wells were also modified to fit the four-foot-long snow tracks. In front the suspension has been modified to fit the skis that are also supplied by American Track Truck.
Lastly the Nissan 370Zki features a custom body wrap and its headlights have been tinted yellow to resemble ski goggles.
