Article by Christian Andrei, on January 24, 2013

Nissan has unveiled the 370Z Nismo, the newest Nismo-tuned vehicle. This summer, expect the Nissan 370Z coupe to go on sale with a variety of revisions that are meant to make it a more focused performance tool. The power output of the 3.7-litre V6 engine was given a boost from 324bhp to 335bhp, while torque was improved by an equivalent figure.

Furthermore, torque will be lower down the rev range compared to the standard car. Nissan hasn’t made any claims with regards to performance but it’s believed that throttle response was also improved. The model was also fitted with an aerodynamic bodykit that permits the 370Z Nismo to generate the same downforce as a Nissan GT-R.

Included in the aerodynamic styling changes are a large rear diffuser with twin integrated exhausts, fixed rear wing, wider side skirts and a new front end with a splitter. It gets new 19in alloys covered with wider 245/40 tyres at the front while 285/35s are used at the rear. Bridgestone made a bespoke tyre compound just for this model.

The Nismo 370Z is positioned 10mm lower than the standard car. Meanwhile, it gets updated springs and dampers to get a firmer, more focused and more involving drive. It also comes with bigger brakes. It comes with the following interior enhancements: special Nismo sports seats, an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and new red and black trim.
