Second model in Nissan's new European Nismo rangeDelivers accessible performance and exciting driving experiencePower increased from 328PS to 344PSSharper acceleration, improved flexibility and real-world performanceRevised chassis, braking system and exhaust set-upDramatic new look with performance-led Nismo design enhancementsOn sale in Europe from June 2013 And
then there were two... Nissan's ambitious plans for its exciting new
Nismo range are showcased in Geneva with the public show debut of the
new 370Z Nismo. The sportiest road-going Z car to date has been
confirmed for production and will appear alongside the Juke Nismo as
Nissan makes its exciting new accessible performance arm available to
European buyers. In
keeping with Nismo traditions, this very special Z offers much more
than a hike in power. Every modification to the design, chassis and
drivetrain has been engineered with the aim of enhancing driver
enjoyment, benefitting from lessons learned in motorsport. The
standard 370Z's acclaimed six-cylinder powerplant has been modified,
with power output rising from 328PS to 344PS and torque up from 363Nm to
371Nm. The result is improved responsiveness across the low and mid rev
range, and a 0-62mph time of only 5.2 seconds (subject to
homologation). Available
only as a coupe with a six-speed manual gearbox, the 370Z Nismo
features a unique specification designed to meet the demands and tastes
of European buyers. Although a version of the 370Z Nismo is already on
sale in North America, the European specification model has been
engineered for more challenging road conditions. As a result, it offers a
sharper, more engaging drive. Already
known for its exceptional dynamics and handling characteristics, the
rear- wheel drive 370Z delivers an even more thrilling experience in
Nismo form. Drivers will experience thrilling acceleration and the
reassurance of exceptional high-speed stability. 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. Like
the Juke Nismo, the 370Z Nismo also displays a powerful new look that
combines classic Nismo details with the bold lines of the standard
model. The
front end features a more aggressive design that improves 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. The
new Nissan 370Z Nismo sets a new benchmark for the dynamic capabilities
of the Z. It goes on sale in key European markets from June 2013, with
full product details and prices announced nearer to the launch date. For the full Nismo story please click here.
