370Z Meets NISMO


Nissan’s new 370Z, an update to the successful 350Z, has not been on the market very long, but we are duly impressed by the performance per dollar ratio. It is an excellent driving car that has been improved over the previous model in all manners of performance as well as build quality and aesthetics.

Now they’ve decided to kick it up a notch…

NISMO, Nissan’s motorsports division formed in 1984, has had its way with the new Z-car and is releasing a limited edition through dealers that is now available.

The NISMO treatment nets you more power of course. The engine has been tuned for 18 more horsepower for a total of 350, along with 276 lb-ft of torque. Suspension changes over the standard model include a new strut tower brace and performance dampers along with upgraded brakes and a dual exhaust system. Unique 19-inch RAYS forged aluminum alloy wheels are also standard.

The exterior has been updated as well, with front and rear fascia treatments along with side sills for better airflow and more downforce. It all adds up to a more aggressive but well integrated overall appearance. One look and you know the car means business.

A job well done by Nissan and its NISMO division. Take it for a spin and you may well be hooked..!
