Nissan NISMO 370Z is the top spec model of the Nissan
370Z, tuned in-house by Nissan's performance division NISMO.
Just like the standard 370Z the NISMO 370Z uses a huge amount
of design inspiration taken from the first generation 'Z' car,
the Datsun 240Z, and the styling
is all the better for it. This is one hell of a good looking
"The NISMO name is known throughout the world as the
leading supplier of race-bred, factory-tuned, extreme performance
Nissan parts, accessories and vehicles," said Al Castignetti,
vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan
North America, Inc. (NNA). "The new, second-generation
NISMO Z proudly and deservedly wears the NISMO
badge, carrying on the tradition of bringing racing-inspired
performance and engineering to the street."
Cosmetic and aerodynamic differences which separate the NISMO
370Z from the standard car include a deeper front spoiler which
extends out further and features a small wing at each corner
to improve downforce, deeper side sills, a specially designed
rear bumper which helps control airflow under the car, and a
functional rear spoiler which helps keep the rear end firmly
planted to the road.
Powering the Nissan NISMO 370Z is the same 3.7 litre, DOHC,
V6 with variable valve event and lift control (VVEL) found in
the standard car but thanks to a new ECU and a performance 'H'
configuration sports exhaust the engine now produces 350 hp
@ 7,400 rpm (18 more than the standard car), and 276 lb-ft of
torque @ 5,200 rpm.
The Nissan NISMO 370Z is available solely with a close-ratio
6-speed manual transmission with Nissan's new "SynchroRev
Match" system. This system automatically controls and adjusts
engine speed when shifting to the speed of the next gear position,
essentially "blipping" the throttle to smooth out
any up/down shifts. This not only allows the driver to focus
more on braking and steering, it improves vehicle balance and
smoothness by reducing the typical "shock" when the
clutch is engaged. The system can be deactivated with a button
next to the shifter for drivers who prefer less vehicle intervention.
The NISMO 370Z's double-wishbone front/4-link rear suspension
design suspension is specially tuned for exceptional stability
and handling. Compared to a standard Nissan 370Z Coupe, front
spring rates have been raised by 15%, rear spring rates 10%,
front stabilizer bar rate upped 15% and the rear stabilizer
bar is 50% stiffer. The roll stiffness rate has been increased
by 15% and front and rear damping rates have been increased
by 40% and 140% respectively.
The Nissan NISMO 370Z features NISMO Sport Brakes with large
diameter 14.0-inch front and 13.8-inch rear vented rotors with
4-piston front and 2-piston rear aluminum calipers. The braking
system also includes a variable ratio brake pedal for a more
direct pedal stroke feel, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic
Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA). A Viscous
Limited-Slip Differential (VLSD) is standard on all NISMO 370Zs,
along with Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC).
The 2-seat interior of the Nissan NISMO 370Z is built around
a deeply scooped instrument panel with a full-length center
console separating the driver and passenger's seat. In the rear
is an open cargo area with enhanced storage and accessibility.
The instrument panel includes a 3-pod cluster with oil temperature,
voltmeter and clock, while the speedometer and tachometer include
an "initial sweep" function, coming alive when the
NISMO Z is first started.
The 2009 NISMO 370Z is available in five exterior colors: Pearl
White, Brilliant Silver, Magnetic Black, Solid Red and Platinum
