Nismo has landed. Again. Well, it never really left, did it?

The latest Nissan Z car manages to be almost everything an auto enthusiast could ask for. Yet, Nissan isn’t gonna be satisfied without a hotter version to tantalize those who think the regular Z car isn’t enough. “With track-tuned performance, bold styling, and a dynamic design, Z NISMO is the next exciting milestone in the 50-plus year journey of Nissan’s iconic sports car,” said Nissan’s press release.

We don’t know any technical details yet, but Nissan’s teaser video shows a very revealing look at the super sports coupe. Now typical of Nismo-line vehicles, the Nissan Z has a more assertive body kit, featuring a red flange that goes around the car. The rear bumper is more aggressive, and it looks like the Z has aggressive black wheels. Nismo badging and red inserts can be found on the front grille, rear bumper, and on the special sporty seats. The Nissan Z Nismo certainly looks mean while Formula Drift driver Chris Forsberg drifts the car around.

Nissan’s being pretty hush-hush about the vehicle’s performance upgrades, but we can wager that the “track-tuned performance” and the billowing smoke from the rear tires means we’ll probably get a power bump. At the very least, expect some stiffer suspension tuning to make the coupe even more agile than normal.

Nissan isn’t going to make us wait too much longer for details, though. Official details on the Z Nismo will be revealed this summer, said the brand.
