Cobra Technology Builds Remote-Controlled Exhaust for Nissan 370Z

Cobra Technology Builds Remote-Controlled Exhaust for Nissan 370Z

We’ve seen an abundance of Japanese tuners turning their attention to German cars; so now it’s interesting to see German tuner Cobra Technology and Lifestyle, turning their attention to Japanese cars. Dubbed the Cobra N+ Sports Kit for the Nissan 370Z Roadster (applicable to standard coupes as well), Cobra brings a little bit of German engineering to one of Japan’s most popular sports cars.

The aesthetics are pretty standard with a front spoiler and rear diffuser done in a “carbon-fiber-look” variety. Here’s to guessing it’s not authentic carbon fiber, but looks the part. Taking a closer look at the rear diffuser, however reveals the most interesting component to Cobra’s tuning package – its remote-controlled exhaust.

Much like what Audi offers stock on the RS4, Cobra’s 370Z exhaust incorporates a butterfly valve that can be opened or closed, affecting the performance and tone of the exhaust. Something that is often seen on German vehicles, it’s nice to see the German engineers transitioning over some of that technology to Japanese models.

Cobra’s N+ kit also includes your run-of-the-mill lowering springs and their own set of 19-inch Cobra N+ CN22 wheels that sports a simplistic and minimal design. Hey and best of all, their parts come with a 2-year warranty with unlimited miles, showcasing their quality.

The COBRA N+ Sports Kit for the Nissan 370Z Roadster

Exclusive accessories for the Nissan 370Z Roadster: Cobra Technology & Lifestyle (Alleestrasse 15-19, D-33818 Leopoldshöhe, Telefon +49 / (0) 52 02 / 99 92 60, Telefax +49 / (0) 52 02 / 99 92 50, Internet ) now introduces the COBRA N+ sports kit which offers exclusive options for upgrading the new open two-seater. All COBRA N+ options are also available for the 370Z coupe.

The COBRA N+ designers developed sportily styled carbon-fiber-look body components for the Japanese sports car: The COBRA N+ front spoiler precisely fits the opening of the air inlet of the production front apron, and lends the two 370Z models a more striking face.

Its aerodynamic counterpart in the rear is the COBRA N+ diffuser insert for the production apron. It was custom developed and features a centrally located reflector as well as custom cutouts for the two large tailpipes of the COBRA N+ sport exhaust system.

The standard rear apron is upgraded visually with the COBRA N+ rear diffuser. The aerodynamic component features a centrally mounted reflector and custom-tailored cutouts on either side for the large tailpipes of the COBRA N+ sport exhaust system.

The COBRA N+ 370Z body program also features carbon-fiber-look covers for the outside rearview mirrors.

For even more agile handling of the open Nissan sportscar the COBRA N+ engineers have developed a custom-tailored 19-inch tire/wheel combination which can be rounded off with sporty yet comfortably tuned lowering springs and sport suspensions. To reduce unsprung weight as much as possible the product range also contains the extremely lightweight COBRA N+ CN22 wheels with six double spokes. In sizes 9Jx19 with size 255/40 ZR 19 high-performance tires in front and 10Jx19 in back with size 285/35 ZR 19 tires they make perfect use of the available space beneath the wheel arches. At the same time these wheels and tires widen the vehicle’s track, further increasing maximum possible cornering speeds.

Customers can also choose between COBRA N+ sport springs for a ride-height lowering of the roadster by some 30 millimeters and two height-adjustable COBRA N+ coil-over sport suspensions. The suspensions are made from stainless steel and come with either adjustable rebound or with adjustable bound and rebound. Both versions lower the ride height of coupe and roadster by between 20 and 40 millimeters on front and rear axle.

Sporty sound, optimized power yield, an even more striking rear appearance and top-notch quality are the hallmarks of the two COBRA N+ stainless-steel sport rear mufflers. The conventional COBRA N+ sports exhaust features one 115 x 90 mm tailpipe of either side.

Alternatively available is a version with an electronically controlled flap and two round 120-mm tailpipes. It allows selecting an exhaust note for the V6 engine ranging from discrete sportiness to pure racing sound at the push of the button on the radio remote.

The cockpit of the two-seater car can be upgraded with special carbon-fiber-look scuff plates with integrated Z logo.

A 2-year warranty with unlimited miles documents the high quality of COBRA N+ components and parts.
