The GReddy Fugu Z is a Tuned car produced by GReddy, albeit listed as a Gran Turismo vehicle. It first appears in Gran Turismo Sport, where it was introduced as part of Update 1.31.
The winner of the 2015 Gran Turismo Awards at SEMA was an S30 Datsun Z, nicknamed the 'Fugu Z'. The car was built by the actor Sung Kang, known for his role in the 'Fast and the Furious' movie series. It is based on a 1973 240Z which he bought in a stock state, and it was custom built to his desired specifications.
The most notable feature of the exterior is the Rocket Bunny body kit consisting of very wide fenders and front/rear spoilers. And of course the car is not just for looks. The engine is the famed RB26DETT from the Skyline GT-R converted to natural aspiration, with mechanical tuning bringing its power up to 216 BHP. Using E85 IndyCar fuel, it can produce about 295 BHP.
To withstand this power, a roll cage is welded to the interior. In order to reduce weight, the dashboard and console are custom made by CarbonSignal.
The name of the car 'Fugu' refers to the Japanese poisonous puckerfish. The fish is very poisonous, so it can lead to death if not treated properly. And the same can be said for the car.
This car can be purchased in the Gran Turismo section of Brand Central for 300,000 Credits.
- Despite being built by a Japanese company, this car is treated as an American car in Gran Turismo Sport. This is because the car's manufacturer is "GT Awards (SEMA)", a catch-all "manufacturer" for GT Awards winners, where all the cars assigned to the "manufacturer" is coded as American car for consistency reasons.
