Starting with the Fairlady Z Nismo, the headline upgrade is in the form of the engine which now puts out 309kW and torque is up to 520Nm as well! Nissan engineers have also tinkered with the gearbox for better shifting. Work has also been done to improve the body rigidity as well as modifications to the steering, body, chassis and traction! New Nismo brakes help bring the quicker car to a stop while an exclusive SPORT+ mode catapults the car forward!
It’s not all mechanical upgrades though, the Z Nismo also features cosmetic upgrades in true Nismo fashion! Bumpers, fenders, side sills, rear spoiler and rear LED lamps are all new and exclusive to the Nismo car as well. It doesn’t end there with unique 9 spoke 19-inch forged aluminium wheels are also part of the exterior upgrades.
On the interior, the colours now match those of the Nismo brand. Special perforated Alcantara and Recaro sports seats add to the long list of improvements. The Nismo model is available in Steel Grey and Super Black which are unique to Nismo while three other colours are also on offer.
Japan models will also get Amazon Alexa across the board along with an optional 432 Orange colour inspired by the Z 432 (S30). A special blue interior option has also been added to the list. Additionally, there is a Nissan Genuine Accessory Package also available for the Z!
