Nissan has introduced a slightly updated version of the U.S.-spec 370Z Nismo in Chicago.

After launching the 370Z Nismo in Europe last month, Nissan has brought to the Chicago Auto Show the U.S.-spec variant which comes with a few minor updates. The exterior now has grey accents and red striping, while inside there's an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel plus a red Nismo tachometer. It is scheduled to go on sale this summer and will be offered with one of the following exterior paints: Magnetic Black, Pearl White, Solid Red and Gun Metallic.

At its heart is the same 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine producing 350 hp (261 kW) at 7,400 rpm and 276 lb-ft (374 Nm) of torque at 5,200 rpm. The power unit is connected exclusively to a six-speed, close-ratio manual gearbox. It sits on 19-inch five-spoke alloys featuring a Gun Metallic finish wrapped around in high-performance Bridgestone Potenza S001 tires.
