In Japan there is a technical college called Nihon Automobile College (NATS) that has become famous for wild student custom car projects. One of his most recent projects, which we brought to you, was a Lexus SC (Toyota Soarer) transformed into a new Supra convertible with a Fast and Furious livery. So it came as a big surprise to us that this custom Nissan Z SUV is not from NATS. It comes from one of Nissan’s official technical colleges in Kyoto (Nissan Automobile Technical College). And it’s one of two retro mashups the students have been working on for the custom show circuit, including the Tokyo Auto Salon 2023.

You can see most of the details in the video above, taken by the college itself. It combines the key features and parts of the latest Nissan Z with a second generation Nissan Murano SUV. It’s appropriately called Fairlady X. We’re really impressed with how well everything has been integrated. It uses genuine Z headlights, taillights, grille and rear spoiler. In a progress photo on School Twitter account, we can see that it also has the classy looking Z steering wheel. However, beyond the Nissan parts, there are additional custom details. In the video, the student highlights the R35 Nissan GT-R’s flush door handles on doors. Part of a GT-R grille was also used to adapt the grille to the proportions of the taller front end. The SUV also has wide front and rear fenders, as well as wide Rays wheels.

We could not determine whether performance increases were made. They would certainly be welcome with the performance looks, but adding them to a project with seriously extensive and custom body work would probably be a lot more work. Also, this isn’t the only car the students have been working on. The school’s social media accounts indicate that they are working on mating a 1960s Nissan Fairlady Roadster (Datsun Roadster in America) with a second generation Nissan March.

The Nissan Fairlady X is on display at the Tokyo Auto Salon. We hope March does too and if it isn’t there we hope the finished product will be shared by the school on their social media pages.
