The Nissan 370Z Nismo is back for 2013 along with some power upgrades and a new body kit that provides the same downforce as a GT-R.
Alongside the Juke Nismo RC, Nissan has just unveiled an updated version of the 370Z Nismo for 2013. Set to go on sale this summer, the coupe is powered by the familiar 3.7-liter V6 but with an increased output now rated at 344 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. The previous version of the car produced 328 hp and 267 lb-ft. Mated exclusively to a six-speed manual gearbox, Nissan claims the tuned coupe can go from 0-62 mph in 5.2 seconds, 0.1 second faster than before.
The typical body kit remains but it's been modified to produce as much downforce as the GT-R. This is thanks to a larger diffuser that features integrated twin exhausts, wider side skirts, a fixed rear wing and an updated front-end with a splitter. 19-inch alloy wheels come as standard and when compared to the stock 370Z, the Nismo version has been lowered by 10mm. It also comes with updated dampers, brakes and springs. The interior has been treated to an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, unique Nismo sport seats and red and black trim. Official pricing has yet to be announced.
