Nissan 370Z NISMO
The dynamic Nissan NISMO 370Z is a tuner-Z® enthusiast’s dream – offering 350 horsepower, racing-inspired exterior and interior styling, a specially tuned suspension and unique super-lightweight forged alloy wheels – straight from the factory and fully warranted. Developed by Nissan’s Specialty Vehicles Group in conjunction with Autech Japan, Nissan’s long-standing conversion partner, the limited production 2012 NISMO 370Z provides unique performance and design attributes that true sports car enthusiasts are looking for. The limited production NISMO 370Z is offered in one completely equipped model with a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission and in a choice of just five exterior colors.
For its use in the NISMO 370Z, the 3.7-liter VQ-series V6 produces 350 hp @ 7,400 rpm and 276 lb-ft of torque @ 5,200 rpm. The NISMO Z®’s enhanced engine power and acceleration is provided through use of an exclusive H-configured exhaust system design and muffler tuning, along with optimized ECM (Engine Control Module) calibration. An oil cooler has been added for 2012. The NISMO 370Z is offered with only one transmission, a close-ratio 6-speed manual with Nissan’s SynchroRev Match® synchronized downshift rev matching system.
Along with its standout performance, the 2012 NISMO Z® offers unique appearance treatments inside and out, designed to be highly emotional yet totally functional. The fully integrated aerodynamic body pieces include an extended front nose design and a fully integrated chin spoiler – providing a sense of dynamic movement while enhancing airflow and downforce for enhanced aerodynamic performance. The NISMO 370Z has an overall length of 173.4 inches – 6.2 inches longer than the standard 370Z Coupe. Special side sills and a unique rear bumper help control airflow under the vehicle, while the functional rear spoiler increases downforce.
Like the standard 370Z Coupe, the NISMO 370Z exterior also includes a wide stance, sculptural fenders, upswept quarter windows, bold “boomerang” shaped headlights and taillights, vertical door handles, heated outside mirrors, and aluminum hood, door panels and hatchback. The headlights are a High Intensity Discharge (HID) bi-functional xenon design with an auto on/off feature. The NISMO 370Z is offered in just five exterior colors: Pearl White, Brilliant Silver, Magnetic Black, Solid Red and Gun Metallic.
