Nissan 370Z Nismo Facelift: Current Generation's Swan Song
|   Saturday, May 24, 2014
Nissan has subjected the 370Z Nismo (Nissan Motorsports International) coupe to a new facelift operation of the current generation of the Japanese's coupe. It will be also be the last. The premiere took place on North American land at the ZDayZ festival in the United States.

On an aesthetic level, changes are limited to grafting some elements with a GT-R flavor. The front side received headlights with black outline and a redesigned bumper. It now integrates a pair of daytime LEDs and draws attention to the accents of red, visible at the bottom.
Thresholds, spoiler and side mirrors are also finished in the same contrasting combination of black and red.

From the point of view of external colors, the 2015 370Z Nismo is offered in just four colors: Solid Red, Magnetic Black, Brilliant Silver and Pearl White.
The interior keeps the exterior's exuberant note. Nissan offers a pair of Recaro sports seats, a professional audio system signed by Bose, and mixed leather and Alcantara upholstery. The optional package Tech Grade expands the list of standard equipment with a new multimedia system with navigation, Bluetooth, reverse camera and a 7-inch touchscreen.

However, the most important change is hidden from the prying eyes of 370Z fans. The V6 engine, displacing 3.7 liters and producing 350 hp, remained untouched, but the six-speed automatic transmission was finally replaced by a new seven-speed box, with the DownShift Rev Matching (DRM) synchronization function of engine speed at relegation.

The modified suspension of the Nismo model includes special springs and stabilizer bars. Also, in the standard version of the 2015 370Z Nismo are large Nissan Sport Brakes and a Viscous Limited-Slip Differential (VLSD) , with a shorter final drive ratio for a better acceleration feel.
The Nissan 370Z Nismo new price is still remains a mystery. Sales commence in July, initially only on the U.S. market, and the availability of the new coupe in Europe will be announced later.


"Nismo is the heart and soul of Nissan performance, both for the track and on the street, so it's fitting that we are showing the dramatic new 2015 370Z Nismo for the first time at a gathering of our most loyal and enthusiast owners. The new 370Z Nismo joins the recently introduced Nissan GT-R Nismo and Nissan Juke Nismo RS, giving performance fans a range of fresh, factory tuned Nismo models to enjoy" said Andy Palmer, Nissan's Chief Planning Officer and Executive Vice President.
"There's much more to love about the 370Z Nismo than ever before – the new appearance inside and out, enhanced handling, new wheels, more technology and a choice of transmissions. Our fans here at ZDayZ want only the best and that's what this new 370Z Nismo delivers" he added.

ZDayZ is an annual meeting of car enthusiasts, which takes place in various locations all across the United States. The event attracts every year hundreds of Nissan Z, GT-R, owners as well as other enthusiasts of Nissan performance cars from all over North America.

The ZDayZ event was held this year between May 15 to 19 at the Fontana Village Resort in Fontana Dam, North Carolina. Activities included a car show, exhaust sound-off competition, group dinners and multiple group mountain road drives.
