Maintaining a low and mean stance, the Z was dropped onto AP Boss's wheel of choice, Prodrive's gorgeous GC-05F. Covered in 245/45-18 front and 265/40-18 rear Bridgestone Potenza RE-01R tires, the Prodrive wheels are forged monoblock pieces of pure beauty.
Blaring right through those forged spokes is a heart-stopping view of the monster brakes from infamous Italian manufacturer Brembo. The fronts are upgraded with beefy four-piston calipers, 14-inch slotted rotors, and Nismo R-Tune brake pads. The rears retain the factory stock Brembo two-piston calipers but are filled with Nismo R-Tune brake pads.
Backing up the track prowess of the braking system, the suspension is a prototype Prodrive setup utilizing some seriously track-stiff 13-kg/mm springs all around. Holding the driver and passenger in place within this track-ready street car are a pair of carbon/kevlar Bride Gias seats fitted with Prodrive harnesses. Featuring the grip of a bucket shell with the reclinable comfort of a street seat, the Gias costs serious bills yet is one of the best all-around seats on the market. A Prodrive suede steering wheel is just a reach away.
With the braking setup and suspension system of a race car, the comfort of a fully-equipped street Z, and the kind of throttle response that only a naturally aspirated engine can provide the Auto Produce Boss Fairlady Z is a role model for all 350Z owners that don't have a turbocharger or supercharger hooked up. Want to stay out of boost? Don't worry, there's hope for you too.
