Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 Nissan Fairlady Z Guide: Watch How to Own and Restore This Dream Car [VIDEO]
Nissan's Fairlady Z has become one of those dream cars that racing video game players wanted. It is because the car itself is associated with the Wangan Midnight series.
In Wangan Midnight, the protagonist owns a souped up Fairlady Z, dubbed "Demon Z," thanks to its specs, high horsepower, and speed that is so fast, it dominated the races within the streets of Wangan in Tokyo, as well as claiming a life of its former driver.
Outside of the in-game lore, the Fairlady Z is one of Nissan's car models that is usually picked in the game, aside from its "sibling," the GT-R and the Skyline GT-R series.
In Car Mechanic Simulator 2021, players can have the same feeling, only this time, they will be like Asakura Akio in terms of restoring their very own Fairlady Z, and if possibly, create their very own "Devil Z."
Bring in the "Demon"
In order to obtain their own Fairlady Z, they must first download the game's Nissan downloadable content (DLC) pack. The said DLC pack is available at Steam for download. Once they downloaded the said pack, it will be automatically included in the game.
After that, once they are in the game, they must travel to the Junkyard, where they would see a tattered up and scrapped Fairlady Z. Depending on how complete the car is in terms of parts, it costs around 9,200 to 9,600 CR.
According to a YouTube video made by Benedict Gameplays, the Fairlady Z can house a I6 SOHC L24 engine, with a factory power of 163 HP at 6220 rpm, and Factory Torque of 198 N.m at 5385 rpm. With the information about engine alone, they will have a clue that they can swap it with any I6 L24 engine.
