Hottest Zed in the new range revealed
8 October 2009

This is the new Nissan 370Z Nismo.

It is the most powerful 370Z in the range and is only available in coupe form. Power comes from the same 3.7-litre V6 as the standard car, which has been tuned to 345bhp and 276lb ft.

The power upgrades have been achieved by remapping the ECU and a freer-flowing exhaust, and the engine is mated to a six-speed manual ‘box.

Its top speed has been limited to 155mph, while it can get from 0-62mph in a claimed 5.1secs.

Styling changes include new bumpers, a bigger wing and larger tyres, while inside it gets a thinly-padded steering wheel, different pedals and manually adjustable sports seats.

The car is currently on sale in the US for the equivalent of around £35,000, but at present Nissan has no plans to bring it to the UK.

Our Verdict

Nissan 370Z

The Nissan 370Z is seductively honest, entertaining and great value, too. But it’s no long-haul cruiser
