Hot off the press from the last fortnights announcement of the Le Mans GT-R LM, NISMO has demonstrated they are the heart and soul of Nissan performance for both the track and on the street with the appearance of this 370z Roadster Concept.
The bold appearance has been inspired by the functional aerodynamic styling of the NISMO GT-R. Up front, the deep fascia with Hyper LED Daytime Running Lights, black headlight bezels, NISMO emblem and signature NISMO red stripe accents set the tone.
On the sides of the vehicle, the NISMO red accents and red sideview mirror covers continue the NISMO theme, adding a touch of flair to the dramatic top-down profile. The rear is highlighted by a custom carbon fiber rear spoiler created exclusively for the 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept.
The convertible top is a cloth power-folding roof with fabric inner liner design. It includes a single action top operation with automatic roof lock, steel tonneau cover and fixed glass wind deflector, just like every 2015 Nissan 370Z Roadster.
Wheels are 19-inch NISMO RAYS (19×9.5-inch front, 19×10.5-inch rear), which receive a special custom finishing. Y-rated Bridgestone Potenza S001 245/40R19 front and 285/35R19 rear tires complete the package.
Now, onto what you really want to know about. Its got a 261kW (as opposed to a standard 245kW) 3.7-litre DOHC V6 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control (VVEL). The 370Z NISMO’s enhanced engine power and acceleration (versus non-NISMO 370Zs) is provided through use of an exclusive H-configured exhaust system design and muffler tuning, along with optimized ECM (Engine Control Module) calibration.
The 370Z NISMO Roaster Concept is currently a design study which has been created to gauge market interest at this point. The current lineup of overseas NISMO production models for 2015 includes the GT-R NISMO, 370Z NISMO, JUKE NISMO and JUKE NISMO RS.
