We have brand new spy photos of a Z test mule spotted on public roads in Colorado undergoing testing. Even though it's in full camo it's clear that it's sticking to the design of the Z Proto.
I’m not a current or past Nissan owner. Back in the late 1970s as I started my legal career, I considered and test-drove several used 1974-76 240/260/280Z as my next sports car, in addition to an actual Pete Brock BRE Datsun 510. Unfortunately, too many of them, to use the slang term, had been ridden hard and put away wet. I ended up buying one of the first Mazda RX7‘s when it came out in 1979. I owned a 1966 Ferrari 330GT for 28 years, and a second generation 2004 Pontiac GTO for 10 years. I love the VR 3.0 twin turbo engine in the Infiniti Q60, which I rented for a week about three years ago, and I also rented a 350Z convertible for a December trip to California a few years before that (just roll up the windows and turn on the heater). Maybe the new 400Z will finally satisfy my unrequited love for a Z car! Thanks for doing the forum.
Good eye! Never noticed that before. Also notice how a few pieces are already wrapped (side Z badge and center piece on the back)?Yeah they arnt hiding much mainly because this seems to actually be one of the leaked cars we already saw. the license plates match
not to mention it appears the silver car leaked pic was as it was about be camo wrapped. youve got the wrapped ( pathfinder?) beside it with adhesive backing paper on the floor and maybe two rolls of it on the wall? seems the leaker may have been involved with wrapping it?

Are there any specific spots they usually take cars to in Colorado for testing?As a Colorado Z owner, I wonder where these photos were taken. I'll keep my eyes open, but this camo Z35 is most likely being tested outside the Denver metro area.
As for the large radiator opening in the front bumper, one practical item no one has mentioned is having a central bar simply to stiffen the structure. This would make it easier to pull from the urethane molds and keep the bumper section from flexing too much.
That's too bad you weren't able to see a Z testing. Did you see any other interesting cars at least?Update: I drove this section of I-70 this past week and didn't see any Z35 testing. That part of I-70 leads to many other good testing sections of good mountain roads, so it's possible Nissan has completed their test schedule and moved the car back to the ATC.
