The iconic Nissan Z remains one of the best-selling sports cars in the U.S., offering passionate performance at an excellent value bringing true sports car performance to everyone. The 2011 NISMO 370Z grabs your attention. It’s one aggressive-looking automobile that gets just as many looks from the ladies as the guys. The wide stance, beautifully sculpted fenders, upswept quarter windows, bold boomerang-shaped headlights and taillights, as well as the vertical door handles all work together to create a vehicle design that most people just have to take a second glance at.
The dynamic Nissan NISMO 370Z is a tuner-Z enthusiast’s dream offering 350 horsepower, racing-inspired exterior and interior styling, a specially tuned suspension and unique super-lightweight forged alloy wheels straight from the factory and fully warranted. Developed by Nissan’s Specialty Vehicles Group in conjunction with Autech Japan, Nissan’s long-standing conversion partner, the limited production 2012 NISMO 370Z provides unique performance and design attributes that true sports car enthusiasts are looking for. The limited production NISMO 370Z is offered in one completely equipped model with a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission and in a choice of just five exterior colors.
Every 2012 NISMO 370Z starts with the unmatched foundation of an advanced Nissan FM (Front Midship) platform, refined 4-wheel independent suspension and 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control (VVEL). The VVEL system helps optimize intake valve open or close movements, allowing the needed air to be sent promptly to the combustion chamber at the precisely optimized time.
For its use in the NISMO 370Z, the 3.7-liter VQ-series V6 produces 350 hp at 7,400 rpm and 276 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm. The NISMO Z’s enhanced engine power and acceleration is provided through use of an exclusive H-configured exhaust system design and muffler tuning, along with optimized ECM (Engine Control Module) calibration. An oil cooler has been added for 2012. The NISMO 370Z is offered with only one transmission, a close-ratio 6-speed manual with Nissan’s SynchroRev Match synchronized downshift rev matching system.
