Nissan stopped building cool cars long time ago. Actually we are pretty sure the 240Z is the last of its kind. So is no wonder that it still gets one petrolhead’s heart pumping. CCW Wheels did a major update to the 240Z, starting with the powertrain and exterior, all the way to small interior bits & pieces.

The most impressive update was done under the hood. The stock engine delivering 230 horsepower and 220 lb-ft of torque was replaced by a Toyota 2JZ inline-six engine that now delivers 600 horsepower. The engine is matted to a Toyota R154 five-speed manual gearbox.

The Car sits on custom-made CCW Classic 5 forged 16-inch wheels combined with a set of D2 coilovers, and massive brakes. The wheels are wrapped in sticky Toyo Proxes tires, stretched to the brink and looking really good with the bright yellow branded lettering.

For the interior, the 240Z gets reupholstered seats and a Technotoytuning T3 harness bar, a Sparco steering wheel and some nifty finishing touches.
