2015 Nissan 370Z Nismo Gets Wild New Look

2015 Nissan 370Z Nismo Gets Wild New Look

Nissan is breathing life back into the 370Z with a new Nismo performance version, which was revealed today at the annual ZDAYZ gathering. 

The car’s biggest upgrades come in the form of appearance, as this 370Z Nismo is powered the same engine as the previous car, a 3.7-liter V6 that makes 350 hp and 276 lb-ft of torque. Either a six-speed manual with rev-match technology or a seven-speed automatic can be paired to the V6.

A new deep front fascia sits on the front of the car wearing new LED light accents along with black headlight bezels. Nismo badges and a red strip are also found on the front of the car to enhance looks, while redesigned side sills and a refreshed rear end complete to the look. Nissan says all of the body modifications come together to make this car more aerodynamic than before.

The 19-inch forged aluminum wheels have also been redesigned for this new Nismo car.

On the inside, leather Recaro racing seats finished with Alcantara accents are fitted along with red trim, Nismo logos, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a Nismo red tachometer. New technology is available inside the car as well with the new Tech model which comes equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen, a Bose audio setup, satellite radio, Bluetooth, a rearview camera, and navigation.

What really counts here however is performance, and the Nismo car gets a number of enhancements to help it lap a race track faster. They include a new strut tower brace for better body rigidity, performance dampers, new springs and stabilizer bars, larger brakes, and a Viscous limited-slip differential.

Expect the car to start arriving in dealers this July.

    I want to make the sexy with it…

  • Shiratori90

    Glad that this is FINALLY being offered with an automatic. It never made sense to me that the NISMO 370Z was the only trim level that didn’t offer it.

  • Alex

    Thats because only people who know how to drive should be driving it.

  • Shiratori90

    Oh look, another manual transmission elitist (you can go back into your mom’s basement now).

    At the end of the day, they’re offering a 7-speed auto now, so yeah……the Nismo team doesn’t believe in that BS (at least not anymore).

  • Rickers

    @shiratori90:disqus You’re like an automatic transmission troll.

  • Shiratori90

    And you are just a general, all-around troll.

    What a loser…..

  • Rickers

    Better than a slushy slushbox troll.

  • Shiratori90

    ^ Trolls will keep on trolling……..

  • Jack Talbott

    That’s funny, I guess professional drivers will be using automatics on any and all pro circuits any day now…….

  • Jack Talbott

    People who can’t or don’t know how to drive want an automatic. Simple as that! Don’t bother responding with any BS excuse, because it’s just that, an excuse.

  • Hajime Kishi

    convertible version, anyone…?

  • Rickers

    Why would you want a convertible version?

  • Shiratori90

    And the troll strikes again……….
