Nissan 370Z Nismo will be also available in Europe

Nissan 370Z NismoThe 370Z will be the second Nismo model in the Europe’s new Nissan Nismo range. Available only as a coupe with a six-speed manual gearbox, the 370Z Nismo features extensive engineering and styling enhancements over the standard 370Z. For Europe a unique specification has been developed to suit both road conditions and the tastes of European driving enthusiasts.

The front end features a more aggressive design improving airflow under the car, leading to improved stability at higher speeds and through corners. This additional downforce is complemented by an extensively re-engineered suspension and chassis set-up, enhancing stability and dynamic handling on both road and track. Other design enhancements include the distinctive Nismo red pinstripe lines visible at both the front and the rear and on the door mirrors. Unique dark grey Nismo superlight 19-inch forged alloy wheels with sports-derived red brake calipers and wider high performance tyres are also fitted. At the rear a smart new spoiler adds the finishing visual touch while also improving aero performance.

Inside, the already performance-oriented 370Z design is now more driver-focused than ever. The steering wheel is finished in alcantara and leather with a red race-inspired ‘top dead centre’ marker, as seen on the Juke Nismo. The sports seats are fully electric with special Nismo badging and red stitching for a premium and sporty detail. The finishing touch is a numbered Nismo plate adding exclusivity to each 370Z Nismo.

Thanks to Nismo tuning, the Z’s 3.7-litre V6 engine delivers 344 hp, up from 328 hp in the standard car, while torque increases from 363 Nm to 371 Nm. The result is improved responsiveness across the low and mid rev range, and a 0-100km/h time of only 5.2 seconds. Enhancing braking feel is also a crucial part of the Z’s development, so Nismo engineers have adopted high rigidity brake hose and high performance brake fluid from the R35 GT-R. An exclusive Nismo dual exhaust system also enhances and amplifies the thrilling sound of the Z’s 3.7-litre V6 engine.
