Nissan has declassified the concept of a roadster called 370Zki. Public debut of the novelty will be held at the Auto Show in Chicago, which opens on February 8 this year. The car was built on the basis of the Nissan 370Z, with the front wheels replaced with skis, and the rear wheels with caterpillars.
The machine is created in a single copy and can move on snow slopes. In the process of creating the prototype 370Z, engineers Nissanp had to completely remake the suspension, increase the wheel arches of the car, and also raise the body of the roadster by three inches. Also the novelty was equipped with the modernized braking system and additional protection of the bottom. The body of the roadster was covered with a special film, which protects from chips and scratches.
The car was completed with a 3.7-liter V6 petrol engine. The power of the unit is 322 horsepower. The unit works in conjunction with a seven-speed automatic transmission.
This is not the first Nissan experience in the development of vehicles with a crawler drive. In 2016, the Japanese brand showed a special modification of the crawler crossover Rogue for driving on snowy slopes. The ground clearance of the prototype is about 58 centimeters. Thanks to this the machine is able to overcome a snow-covered rise of 45 degrees. The maximum speed of the Rogue Warrior is 100 km per hour.
Last year the company introduced a conceptual crossover on tracks. The novelty is called the Rogue Trail Warrior Project. The body of the car received camouflage coloring, on the roof were installed LED lights, and in front there was an electric winch. The machine is driven by a two-liter petrol engine.
