Nissan 370Z Nismo specs, pictures and details

Nissan's 370Z Nismo gets a mid-life refresh, with a focus on adding refinement. Details and pictures here

Nissan has released details of its updated 370Z Nismo, set to arrive in Europe in September. Mixing an improved chassis setup and weight saving with styling updates, the latest 370Z Nismo promises to bring a stronger challenge to rivals like Porsche’s Cayman and BMW’s M235i.

The 3.7-litre V6 engine itself remains unchanged, sending the same 339bhp and 274lb ft of torque to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual ‘box available with auto rev-matching. Like the old car the 0-62mph dash takes 5.2sec, with top speed is a limited 155mph.

Adding to the Nismo’s already 25 per cent stiffer chassis setup is tweaked rear suspension settings for the 2015 model year. Revised spring and damper rates are said to improve both comfort and performance, whilst better insulating new carpets and rear inner arches will help make the most potent 370Z a more refined steer.

Outside, the Nismo has received subtle changes including more aggressively styled front and rear bumpers, black headlight bezels as well as new 19-inch Rays alloy wheels. The rear features a more tightly packaged spoiler that works to ensure smoother airflow across the car, whilst red trim and Nismo badges add to the car’s performance focused exterior.

The cabin now features new Recaro seats adapted specifically for the Nismo, saving weight with a shell-based construction and matching the steering wheel with red and black leather and Alcantara.

The updated Nismo heads an overall updated 370Z range for 2015, with the standard range benefitting from similar suspension tweaks, new 18-inch wheels and new Spinal seats. The standard car’s 323bhp V6 can be mated to a six-speed manual or seven-speed auto ‘box, the former available with the same rev-matching tech as the Nismo.

Prices remain unconfirmed, but starting figures of around £37,000 for the Nismo and £28,000 for the standard car can be expected.
