Who could have thought that the Nissan 300ZX would wear a wide body kit this good?
The Nissan 300ZX has been around for three decades now and is now considered a classic among enthusiasts. The 300ZX was for a long time overshadowed by its more performance-oriented brother, the R32 Skyline GT-R. But as of today, the Skyline GT-R has become extremely desirable, and thus also expensive. However, in comparison, the Nissan 300ZX looks like a complete steal with examples seen as low as $10,000.
Because the 300ZX is so obtainable, there is usually some budget left for modifications. It just happens to be that the Nissan 300ZX completely nails the widebody kit look. Already from factory, the 300ZX is quite wide so it would seem odd to invest in a widebody kit. But despite all odds, an even wider frame completely transforms the 300ZX from a mundane grand tourer to a bad-ass-looking sports coupé-
Supply is relatively low, but perhaps that is because the ones that do exist are so well-made and good-looking that it leaves no room for competitors.
The Zero Z32 wide body kit is manufactured by ConceptZPerformance which is a company mainly focused on exterior and performance parts for the Nissan Z-family, which includes the 300ZX. On top of being a reseller of various performance brands such as Nismo, AEM, Cusco, and HKS they also sell their own Z32 body kit known as Zero.
This kit can be considered an entry-level kit and offers:
The kit is manufactured using Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) which is an advanced form of fiberglass which helps strengthen the material even further. This material is used by most high-end body shops such as Liberty Walk or Rocket Bunny.
Despite being a rather simplistic widebody kit, we’d say it suits the 300ZX very well. It complements the original chassis design and gives off a more aggressive stance.
The Z32 Zero widebody kit will set you back around $2,000.
KBD is an American-based company that has been around for over 50 years with long expertise of body kits and plastic technologies. Unlike most manufacturers of body kits, KBD does not utilize fiberglass. Instead, they’re utilizing Polyurethane which is a rubber-based plastic.
Polyurethane is arguably the best choice for durability and can very easily be reshaped to its original design with a bit of heat added. The advantage it has over fiberglass is that fiberglass tends to crack when under too much pressure. Polyurethane on the other hand will not crack but remains in its original design. And if that is not enough, they also offer a lifetime warranty on their products.
Their Z32 300ZX widebody kit is certainly a sight to behold. Unlike the other kits on this list, KBD’s kit went all-out aggressiveness and stance, and if that is your kind of look then you’ve hit jackpot.
This kit will leave nothing left for the imagination and if modified together with a nice pair of aftermarket JDM wheels you can certainly guarantee you’ve got yourself a unique-looking 300ZX (as if the 300ZX wasn’t unique already).
Their kit will set you back around $3,500 which, to be honest is a steal considering you also get yourself a lifetime warranty.
The TwinZ company was actually founded by two twin brothers who had the vision to create a great-looking body kit for the Nissan 300ZX as they weren’t entirely satisfied with the standard body kit. Lo and behold, Their TwinZ Z32 300ZX body kit has become one of the most popular kits of the Z32, and it is clear to see why.
As a small company, they’ve had to ensure that their product meets all requirements, such as material quality, fitment, and design. And as they’ve been around ever since 2003 with returning customers it is safe to say they’ve done their homework.
Their Twinz Z32 300ZX kit features 13 different pieces which have been carefully designed to work with the car’s natural curves and proportions.
The kit includes:
All their kits are carefully tested to ensure the quality and fitment are OK before shipment.
Veilside’s Nissan Z32 300ZX Wide Body kit is certainly the most desirable on this list. Veilside is a world-class manufacturer of body kits to various brands and models of cars. They are located in Japan and have been around for over three decades.
Perhaps one of their more prized and praised work is with their Veilside Mazda RX-7 bodykit which has become recognized globally.
With their many years of experience and loyal customer base, it is no surprise that their body kits are regarded as some of the best in the world.
Their 300ZX Z32 body kit is no exception. This is arguably a more ‘elegant’ wide body kit as it blends together with the other chassis panels perfectly.
The kit is manufactured using Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP).
Ordering directly from Veilside’s website, this kit will set you back 900,000 YEN, or converted to USD about $6,000. And while you certainly can find cheaper kits, the Veilside kit offers the best quality, looks, and uniqueness which can’t be found with many other manufacturers.
