Nissan 370Z tweaked by Nismo for 2014
The Nissan 370Z lineup may have just received some slight tweaks for 2013, but their tuning wing ‘Nismo’ is making it sportier by giving a few more upgrades for 2014. The new Nissan Nismo 370Z debuted at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.
Changes to the vehicle include new grey accents and red striping on the exterior and interior, an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and a new red Nismo tachometer. The vehicle will also be offered in four exterior colours, namely pearl white, black, gun-metallic and red.
As for the coupe’s performance, it still retains the higher 350 hp rating from the 3.7-litre V6 engine as in the previous Nismo, paired solely to a 6-speed manual transmission. Other performance add-ons include a more aerodynamic front fascia, rear spoiler, 19-inch wheels with sportier suspension and a strut tower brace for better rigidity.
The 2014 Nissan 370Z Nismo is expected to go on sale this summer and will join the Juke Nismo in many markets. However, whether the vehicle will make it to the GCC is still a doubt.
The car debuted just in time for Nissan to declare Nismo as their exclusive global performance road-car and motorsport brand, while inaugurating the new Nismo global headquarters and development centre in Japan. They plan to launch at least one new Nismo model per year, as the 370Z Nismo joins the Juke Nismo for this year.
