Nissan has revealed its latest Nismo-tuned model, the Nissan 370Z Nismo.

The Nissan 370Z coupe is set to go on sale in the summer with a host of modifications aimed at making it a more focused performance tool.

The 3.7-litre V6 engine's power output has been improved from 324bhp to 335bhp, with torque also said to have been improved by an equivalent amount. In addition, torque will arrive lower down the rev range than in the standard car. No performance claims have been made, but throttle response is said to be improved.

An aerodynamic bodykit has been fitted to the model; it is said to allow the 370Z Nismo to produce as much downforce as a Nissan GT-R.

A large rear diffuser with twin integrated exhausts, fixed rear wing, wider side skirts and a new front end with a splitter are also among the aerodynamic styling changes.

New 19in alloys are fitted with wider 245/40 tyres at the front and 285/35s at the rear. A bespoke tyre compound has been created by Bridgestone for the model.

The Nismo 370Z sits 10mm lower than the standard car, and has updated springs and dampers for a firmer, more focused and more involving drive. Bigger brakes also feature.

Interior upgrades include special Nismo sports seats, an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and new red and black trim.

Nissan has also confirmed a hotter version of the Nissan Juke Nismo.
