Nissan’s tuning arm Nismo has pulled the covers from its revised 370Z package at the ZDayZ enthusiast meet in the US, revealing new styling and adding an auto option for 2015.
This third version of the 370Z Nismo gets a new front bumper with a wide lower grille, new daytime running lights and a split lip finished in Nismo’s signature red.
There’s also new side skirts again with red highlights, a new rear bumper with larger brake vents and a new ducklip rear spoiler design.
Redesigned 19-inch RAYS forged alloy wheels prop up each corner, in front of large Nissan Sport brakes.
There’s also a viscous limited-slip differential and retuned suspension.
Power is again provided by a 261kW/373Nm tune of Nissan’s 3.7 litre VQ37VHR V6 petrol engine - up from 245kW/363Nm in the regular model.
The Z’s six-speed SynchroRev Match manual transmission is again standard, but Nismo has no added the seven-speed auto as an option for the 2015 model.
With this weekend's unveiling of the updated Nismo 370Z and the tuning brand’s greater influence in future Nissan models, can we finally expect to see a Nismo model in Australia?
Speaking with TMR in March, Nissan Australia’s Peter Fadeyev would say only that while Nismo is on the local arm’s radar, there’s still no confirmed launch plans.
