I hope you are excited as I am when the new Nissan 370z was first announced. At first I wasn’t too happy about the new look but the things I didn’t like most about it is; headlights, front bumper, tail lights, and couple of other things. But as time pass and now that it’s out, it has really grown on me and I’m loving the new 370z. I’ve seen a couple in person and on the streets and Nissan did a great job on the design. I’m also a fan of the Nismo 350z, I’ve seen them up close at the Nissan dealers and car shows but hardly see any on the streets. I didn’t really start liking the looks of the NISMO 350Z till I saw them driving on the streets. I’ve seen 2 so far and both were within this month. Seeing them on the streets, all I can say is WOW it looks amazing. Looks like a full track car (which it is). Just so aggressive and looks like its ready to tear up the streets.
So a week ago after seeing the 2 NISMO 350Z, I thought to myself, “I wonder how the Nismo 370z will look like?” To my surprise I got some news that they already planning to come out by June of this year. Saw the pictures and I am very impressed.
Here is some of the specs:
- 350 HP @ 7,400 rpm and 276 lb-ft of torque
- 3.7 liter DOHC V6 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control (VVEL)
- NISMO-tuned Suspension
- Aerodynamic Body
- Unique Interior Treatments
- Close-Ratio 6 Speed Manual Transmission (new “SynchroRev Match” function)
- Engine Computer Module control (ECM)
- H-configured exhaust system design and muffler tuning
- Tight, rigid body structure with a strut tower bar brace and a pair of performance dampers
- Double-wishbone front/4-link rear suspension design (front spring rate is dialed up to 15%, rear rates 10%, front stabilizer bar rate upped 15% and rear 50% stiffer compared to the standard Nissan 370Z)
- NISMO 5 spoke 19 inch RAYS forged aluminum alloy wheels (19×9.5 front, 19×10.5 rear)
- Yokohama ADVAN Sport-Y high performance tires (P245/40ZR19 Front, R285/35ZR19 Rear)
- NISMO Sport Brakes (14 inch front and 13.8 rear vented rotors with 4 piston front and 2 piston rear aluminum calipers
- 5 color choices: Pearl White, Brilliant Silver, Magnetic Black, Solid Red, and Platinum Graphite
- Special side sills and a unique rear bumper help control airflow under the vehicle
- Functional rear spoiler increases downforce
I don’t know what the msrp pricing will be but I’m guessing its going to be slightly more then the Nissan NISMO 350Z. So what do you guys think of the NISMO 370Z appearance? Many of the guys here at R1 loves it, some think it looks too much like a Porsche.
I’m still blown by how good the NISMO 370Z looks…. It’s not as aggressive as the NISMO 350Z and I think that’s what I love so much about this new beast. I think it’s just sexy. I love the front bumper as the standard 370Z fangs bumper hasn’t grown on me yet. Looks like the Veilside bumper for the 350Z. I will keep you guys updated on more info. Here at R1 Concepts Inc., we will be comming out with performance brake rotors, pads, and stainless steel lines for the NISMO 370Z and the standard 370Z very soon. So stay tuned.
PS. To Nissan…. “I’ll take one in Brilliant Silver please!”
