This high performance coupe is the second model in Nissan’s performance division line-up to come, after launching the Nismo Juke in 2013. Everything about this car reminds me of playing Need For Speed Underground, because it’s just a perfect mix of import tuner and muscle that makes night cruising a way of life.
On the exterior there are quite a few changes. The 370Z comes with Nismo red pinstripes on the mirrors, lightweight 19-inch forged alloy wheels, high performance tyres and sports-derived red callipers. There’s also an enlarged spoilerat he rear matched at the front with a splitter below the front bumper.
Inside, the coupe comes with fully electric sport seats with special red stitching and with a steering wheel finished in alcantara and leather. The Japanese tuner added a numbered Nismo plaque as a finishing touch so it’s impossible to miss that you’re in a Nismo 370Z.
Now, just to get an ideea of the car’s performance, let’s put it against the old Nismo 350Z, which had 306 hp. That’s about 44 less than the Nismo 370Z.
Under the bonnet lies a 3.7 – litre V6 engine that’s tweaked to deliver a maximum power output of 350 hp, while torque is at 371Nm. The result is a 0-62mph time of 5.2 seconds, making it faster with a tenth of a second than the standard 370Z.
The car comes equipped with high rigidity brake hoses and high performance brake fluid from the GT-R. A dual exhaust system is included in order to give the coupe a sportier and aggressive engine noise.
So if you happen to be a fon of previous Z models ore you are just looking to avoid a common Mustang, the Nismo 370Z is a perfect choice.
