In 2009, The National Guard pushed into its biggest tour and largest numbers of audience and needed its biggest draw. Nissan stepped up again and Ashby went a new direction from earlier builds to a more performance based car to show the duties of the Guard Soldier and its heritage.
The entire body was replaced with SEIBON Carbon and the 3.5L motor was replaced with a Brian Crower 4.2 Stroked VQ. AP Racing Brakes hid behind the 3 piece Asanti wheels and the BC Suspension was the final touch the Z needed for performance. The interior was wrapped in suede and carbon and the exterior carbon parts were accented with flat back BASF paint and both sides of the Z were airbrushed with illustrations of both the War and Natural Disasters duties that National Guard Soldiers are called to serve in.
