The flagship Nissan 370Z Nismo has been revised to deliver a sharper and more engaging driving experience, while the Japanese manufacturer has also improved refinement and enhanced equipment levels across the entire 370Z range. The model is on display at the Paris motor show.
The changes focus on aerodynamic and suspension tweaks, but the performance of the 370Z Nismo is unchanged, meaning it is still powered by a 339bhp, 3.7-litre six-cylinder engine and can sprint from 0-62mph in 5.2 seconds.
Available only as a coupé with a six-speed manual gearbox, the 370Z Nismo features suspension enhancements introduced as part of the updates of the entire range.
To improve ride comfort, the rear spring and damper rates have been altered, while changes to the carpets and inner rear wheel arch protector have further reduced road noise.
The exterior changes include a redesigned front bumper which features a larger air intake, additional air inlets ahead of the wheel arch and new LED daytime running lights.
At the rear, Nissan has introduced a new bumper and spoiler design. The new version features a smaller rear spoiler that works in tandem with the new front bumper to create significantly more downforce when driving at speed.
Nissan's engineers say downforce is now more evenly distributed over the front and rear axles, giving a more balanced feeling on the road.
Other updates include the introduction of black headlamp bezels, red Nismo trim at the base of the bumper, redesigned side sills and door mirrors and special Nismo badging. Revisions also include new 19-inch alloy wheels finished in black and silver.
