The Z NISMO, powered by a twin-turbo engine that delivers 420 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque makes it one of the top performance Z class vehicles from Nissan. Along with the upgraded performance comes a brand new look, with elements like the “G-Nose” that nods to the classic Nissan Farilady 240ZG.
It’s not all about looks either, the Z NISMO’s body styling works to enhance aerodynamic performance as well as manage engine cooling needs. Furthering the aerodynamic prowess, the NISMO-exclusive variant comes with redesigned side sills and a wider rear spoiler.
The interior enhancements are equally as attractive, including red-anodized engine-start and drive mode buttons, manual-adjust Recaro seats and an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, elevating both the look and feel of the car.
Included in performance features is a new Sport+ drive mode that offers dynamic shift programming for a racetrack-tuned driving experience. Thanks to a complete revamp from NISMO engineers, drivers will experience fine-tuned suspension that is optimal for precision and cornering grip. Other performance updates include a bolstered braking system, with larger rotors and a performance-focused brake pad compound.
The new NISMO model goes on sale this fall, with pricing yet to be announced at the time of writing.
