Rush jobs are not uncommon at SEMA because being the first to do anything significant is important. SteetHunter is the first to offer a complete widebody kit for the all-new 2023 Nissan 400Z, but it’s also a well-executed build that’s got JDM fans excited.
Tj Hunt, who describes himself as a YouTuber with too many cars, is best known for his Japanese car projects. And this year, he brought no less than three, a Veilside Mazda RX7 (like the one in Tokyo Drift but green), the GR86/BRZ widebody which we just showed you, and this, the “Street Kit” for the 400Z.
For well under $10,000, you too will be able your brand new Nissan Z from a soft sports car into the low-riding cruising machine straight out of NFS. The package is over-the-top, but preserves just enough of the original character.
Starting at the bumper now has a deep chin spoiler made of clear-coated carbon fiber. The piece de resistance is the new front fender, which is a complete replacement, not a bolt-on, and was inspired by a particular Nismo-tuned R34 GT-R, the “Z-tune”.
Tj’s favorite view of the car is from the rear 3/4, where you can see the vents on the front fender and double-rounded vents on the rear fender flares. I think they match the retro design of the taillights very well.
What else is on the SEMA-built 400Z
As you’re probably aware, the YouTuber had trouble finding a car to build and ended up flying to Florida where he picked up 1-of-240 Proto Z example for around $80,000.
The factory yellow paint and custom body kit were then covered up in a Laguna Seca Blue wrap. That’s supposed to be a BMW color, but it looks a bit more metallic to my eyes.
It does have one notable performance mod. The 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 breathes a little better thanks to a custom MagnaFlow xMOD exhaust system. We’ve already talked about wheels, but the TE37s have been swapped out for 3-piece HRE alloys that better pull off the “hellaflush” look for SEMA.
