Nismo originally designed the concept of the Z-tune in 2002 when Nissan was putting an end to the R34 Skyline production. The first Z-tune was built in 2003, using a used 2002 Skyline GT-R V·spec II. It was built with a concept Z1 engine, the engine was based on Nissan's Le Mans GT2 and GT500 race winning engines.
As with the racing vehicles a strengthened engine block and stroked crankshaft were utilized. The engine was also bored. With the new displacement of the 2.8 litre engine and upgraded turbochargers the Z1 produced 500 horsepower. The Z-Tune had a 0–60 mph time of 3.8 seconds and had a top speed of over 203 mph.
