Engine Capability

The 370Z NISMO’s performance is ensured by an advanced Nissan Front Midship (FM) platform, refined 4-wheel independent suspension and a 3.7 litre DOHC V6 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control (VVEL) rated at 261kW at 7400rpm with a maximum torque figure of 374Nm available at 5200rpm. Acceleration is optimised through the use of an exclusive H-configured exhaust system design and muffler tuning, along with ECM (Engine Control Module) calibration. This engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission with Nissan’s SynchroRev Match synchronised downshift rev matching system.

Exterior Styling Features

The exterior features new dark gray colouring on 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. The Solid Red replaces the previous Magma Red as one of four 370Z NISMO exterior colour choices.

Additional features include unique super lightweight 19-inch RAYS forged aluminum-alloy wheels with a Gun Metallic finish. An extended front nose design and a fully integrated chin spoiler provide a sense of dynamic movement while enhancing airflow and down-force for enhanced aerodynamic performance.

Interior Styling Features

The inside of the 370Z NISMO sports a new steering wheel wrapped in Alacantara, leather wrapped gear lever, aluminium-trimmed pedals and a red NISMO tachometer.

Sporty seats are covered in woven cloth with NISMO logos and feature 8-way driver’s/4 way passenger manual adjustments and adjustable front seat Active Head Restraints. Nissan Intelligent Key with Push Button start, power windows with one touch auto up/down feature, power door locks with auto lock feature and automatic climate control all come as standard.

Other interior features include an AM/FM/CD/AUX 4-speaker audio system, a Bose Package featuring an in-dash 6-CD changer, six speakers, two subwoofers, Bluetooth Hands-Free Phone System, auto-dimming inside mirror and a HomeLink Universal Transceiver.

"The great thing about the 370Z NISMO, like the JUKE NISMO, is that there is solid functionality behind every element, race-inspired but ready for the street and with pure NISMO style." said Pierre Loing, Vice President, Product and Advanced Planning and Strategy, Nissan America.

Along with the 2014 Nissan 370Z NISMO, the 370Z is also available as a 370Z Coupe and 370Z Roadster.
