Harnessing 30 years of NISMO spirit and engineering knowledge, the new 370Z NISMO has been extensively reworked to deliver a sharper and more engaging driving experience. The 2015 370Z NISMO is deemed the sportiest and most focused Nissan performance speedster to date.
Nissan 370Z NISMO: Design changes and new aero package
The 370Z NISMO has always been a head-turner, and with the introduction of a bolder, more powerful new look, it has even greater kerb appeal. The front bumper has been completely redesigned and features a larger air intake, additional air inlets ahead of the wheel arch and new LED daytime running lights. Other updates include the introduction of black headlamp bezels, special red NISMO trim at the base of the bumper, redesigned side sill and door mirror and special NISMO badging. The revised 370Z NISMO also features new 19-inch Rays alloy wheels finished in black and silver, or the standard 18-inch wheels finished in Gun Metallic.
At the rear, Nissan has introduced a new bumper and spoiler design that typifies the brand’s approach to design and engineering. As part of a complete rework of the 370Z NISMO’s aero package, the new version features a smaller rear spoiler that works in tandem with the new front bumper to create significantly more downforce when driving at speed. What’s more, the force is now more evenly distributed over the front and rear axles, giving a more balanced feeling on the road. Nissan’s calculations confirm that the new aerodynamic system introduced on the 370Z NISMO gives it more downforce than any of its sector rivals.
Nissan 370Z NISMO: Racing-inspired interior
Nissan knows that NISMO drivers have a passion for performance driving. To meet the demands of owners who like to fully exploit the 370Z performance and chassis, the new model features new Recaro seats that offer significant improvements in support and comfort.
Based on the acclaimed Recaro Sportster, the new seats have been tailored specifically for use in the 370Z NISMO and feature a host of detail changes to deliver maximum support for drivers. Every aspect of the seat and its position within the car has been analysed by Nissan to create the perfect driving position.
By adopting a new shell-based construction for the seats in preference over a traditional tubular frame seat, Nissan has also been able to improve rigidity and reduce weight at the same time. To complete the interior makeover, the seats are trimmed in red and black leather and Alcantara to match the steering.
When it comes to power, the 370Z NISMO has lots of it; the 3.7-liter 6-cylinder, paired to a 6-speed manual or 7-speed auto transmission, delivers at least 328 – 344 PS easy and an exceptional torque at low revs and board power band. A sprint from 0 – 100 km/h is accomplished in just 5.2 seconds. At the same time, the NISMO dual exhaust system simply add that desired purr that denotes a perfect sporting soundtrack. The 370Z also remains the only car in the sector to offer Syncro Rev Control, the world’s first fully synchronized down/up shift rev control system.
To improve ride comfort, the rear spring and damper rates have been altered, while changes to the carpets and inner rear wheel arch protector have further reduced road noise.
Individual market prices and specifications is scheduled for a later announcement within the year.
