Nissan's in house tuner putting out more pics ahead of the 370Z release. The 370Z will go on sale early next year in the US market and will feature a new 3.7 liter engine with 330 hp.

The new Nissan 370 Z, called the Fairlady-Z in Japan, is coming soon and Nissan's in-house tuner, Nismo, has released some new pics here to titilate the market for its latest model.

In these tough times, it may be a good idea to get as much buzz going for your new release. And maybe drum up business for your in-house tuner too. Because, that is essentially selling the customer on an additional set of options, which is where automakers really make the bulk of their their profits on a vehicle anyway.

That may sound cynical but Nismo offers just enough bells a whistles on the new 370Z to spice up the car but nothing under the hood that could bump this Z up into Germanic-competing territory.

We have previously reported on the two packages that Nismo is offering on the 370Z. An S-Tune Aero Package, focused on an improved aerodynamic performance. And a S-Tune Performance Package, with Nismo LMZ5 19" wheels, new break pads, S-Tune Suspension and Nismo Stainless Exhaust for better throttle response and a livelier, road-rumbling sound.

Fairlady, yes. But just barely.
