The Nissan 370Z Nismo follows the new Nismo design theme with distinctive new exterior and interior accents.
With the current Nissan 370Z Nismo setting the bar as a tuner-Z enthusiast's dream straight from the factory and fully warranted - offering 350 horsepower, racing-inspired exterior and interior styling, a specially tuned suspension and unique super-lightweight forged alloy wheels - the enhancements for 2014 are designed to up the car's already strong visual impact. On the exterior, new dark gray coloring is added to the front and rear fascias, lower side sills, side mirrors and Nismo rear spoiler, with each element (except side sills) featuring Nismo-style red pinstripe accents. In addition, Solid Red replaces the previous Magma Red as one of four Nissan 370Z Nismo exterior color choices. Interior enhancements include the addition of a new steering wheel with Alcantara appointments and red accents, and a red Nismo tachometer.
The Nissan 370Z Nismo's outstanding performance is anchored by an advanced Nissan FM (Front Midship) platform, refined 4-wheel independent suspension and 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control (VVEL) rated at 350 hp @ 7,400 rpm and 276 lb-ft of torque @ 5,200 rpm. The VVEL system helps optimize intake valve open/close movements, allowing the needed air to be sent promptly to the combustion chamber at the precisely optimized time. The Nissan 370Z Nismo's enhanced engine power and acceleration (versus non-Nismo 370Zs) is provided through use of an exclusive H-configured exhaust system design and muffler tuning, along with optimized ECM (Engine Control Module) calibration.
