Nissan Patrol Nismo highlights motorsport brand launch in UAE
Nissan’s well-known performance brand, Nismo, made its Middle East debut at a launch event in Dubai. It is the first time that an entire line of Nismo models are offered in the UAE and other GCC countries.
In addition to launching the performance marque with the 370Z Nismo and the GT-R Nismo, Nissan also had a “world premiere” of the Patrol Nismo. All three are said to be “race-inspired” and therefore come with body kits and red trim bits.
The Nissan 370Z Nismo has a unique front bumper, body kit, redesigned wheels, retuned suspension and Recaro seats.
The Nissan GT-R Nismo is upgraded to 600 hp and comes with more aerodynamic aids, enough to generate an additional 100 kg of downforce at 300 kph.
The Nissan Patrol Nismo is upgraded to 428 hp and a “torque improvement over 70% rev-range,” aside from 22-inch forged-alloy wheels, Bilstein shock absorbers, “body reinforcements for precision steering & quick response,” a “segment-first Zero-Lift aerodynamic body kit, and a “bespoke” interior.
