2009 NISMO 370Z

Nissan's Specialty Vehicles Group NISMO will start providing examples of its new NISMO 370Z to interested customers in North America. This second-generation NISMO Z is based on the 370Z but true to NISMO form more horses were required to make it a proper package.

The car now makes 350hp (257kW) and maximum torque of 276 lb-ft (374Nm). Coming along for the party is the 6-speed manual gearbox with SynchroRev Match which simulates heel-toe downshifting. Fitted to help with takeoff and handling is a Viscous Limited-Slip Differential. To stop the car from its tracks are Nissan Sports Brakes.

Looks and performance are enhanced with kit like special side sills, a fully integrated chin spoiler and an extended nose.

For running gear NISMO chose five-spoke 19-inch RAYS forged aluminium alloy wheels. Accompanying rubber is a foursome of Yokohama ADVAN Sport Y-rated high performance tyres.

The interior features red and back fabric with red stitching, a smooth leather steering wheel, a leather-wrapped gear lever and aluminium foot pedals.

The NISMO 370Z has an MRSP of US$39,130 which excludes the only three options: NISMO carpeted floor mats (US$115), a carpeted boot mat (US$95) and illuminated kick plates (US$200).

Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA) announced pricing for the all-new 2009 Nissan NISMO 370Z™, which goes on sale today at Nissan retailers nationwide.  The new, second-generation NISMO Z® continues the tradition of the original, offering unique performance and design attributes that true sports car enthusiasts are looking for – including a functional aerodynamic body design, 18 additional horsepower and a special sport-tuned suspension.

The 2009 Nissan NISMO 370Z™, which is equipped with a 350-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 and close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission with SynchroRev Match, has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price* (MSRP) of US $39,130.  Only three accessories are available on this well equipped vehicle – NISMO carpeted floor mats, illuminated kick plates and a carpeted trunk mat.

“The new NISMO Z® is a tuner and Z® enthusiast’s dream – straight from the factory,” said Pat Steiner, Director, Specialty Vehicles, Nissan Division, NNA.  “With its dramatic exterior, custom interior, sport-tuned performance and under $40,000 price, this new NISMO Z® is possibly the best ‘bang-for-the-buck’ sports car available today.” 

About the 2009 NISMO 370Z™
The NISMO 370Z™ was developed by Nissan’s Specialty Vehicles Group in conjunction with Autech Japan, Nissan’s longstanding conversion partner.  The NISMO Z®’s standard 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control (VVEL) develops 350 horsepower and 276 lb-ft of torque (versus the standard 370Z Coupe’s 332 horsepower and  270 lb-ft of torque), thanks in part to an exclusive free flow dual exhaust system, muffler tuning and an optimized Engine Control Module. 

As expected of a true performance machine, the NISMO 370Z™ is offered with only one transmission – a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission with standard SynchroRev Match-the world’s first synchronized downshift rev matching manual transmission introduced earlier this year on 370Z Coupe (which simulates perfectly matched heel-toe-like downshifting).

The NISMO 370Z™ also features a refined 4-wheel independent suspension, a reinforced strut tower brace for enhanced body rigidity and a pair of performance body dampers to manage road-input vibrations and help contribute to the NISMO 370Z™’s stability and performance feel.  The NISMO-tuned suspension includes specially tuned springs, shock absorbers and stabilizer bars.  Wider, unique 5-spoke 19-inch RAYS forged aluminum-alloy wheels are mounted with Yokohama ADVAN Sport Y-rated high-performance tires.  Nissan Sport Brakes and a Viscous Limited-Slip Differential are also standard on the NISMO 370Z™.

Along with its standout performance, the new NISMO Z® stands out from the crowd with its dramatic performance-oriented exterior and interior styling.  The functional and fully integrated aerodynamic body modifications include an extended nose with a canard design at each corner for improved downforce and a fully integrated chin spoiler.  Special side sills and a unique rear fascia help manage airflow under the vehicle, while the functional rear spoiler also increases downforce.

The interior includes NISMO logo seats with black and red fabric and red stitching, a NISMO tachometer, a smooth leather-wrapped steering wheel with red parallel stitching, a smooth leather-wrapped shift knob and aluminum trimmed pedals.  A serialized plaque of authenticity is also matched to each NISMO Z®, identifying its unique serial and model year designation.

They did a great job on this vehicle. I had a 240Z in 1970 and they definitely brought the lines out from that era.
