PRICE

In­tro­duc­ing Nismo mod­els al­lows a price cut. The start­ing price has never been cheaper, at $49,990.

TECH­NOL­OGY

The sus­pen­sion is tweaked with old-school springs and dampers but there is Bose ac­tive noise-can­celling to help in the cabin. Chas­sis dampers re­duce vi­bra­tion but the Nismo strut brace in the en­gine bay is the reg­u­lar one from a Zed ... with a spe­cial sticker.

PER­FOR­MANCE

The Nismo ex­haust is a com­plete dual set-up for bet­ter flow, work­ing with tweaks to the en­gine man­age­ment com­puter. Ex­tra 8kW and 8Nm out­puts are un­de­tectable.

DRIV­ING

The 370Z has al­ways been fun but not very re­fined. The Nismo pack­age smooths the edges, al­lows more con­fi­dent cor­ner­ing and makes any drive more re­lax­ing and re­ward­ing.

DE­SIGN

The shape is un­changed, so the Nismo tweak­ing is just tin­ker­ing around the edges with a spoiler, side skirts and badges. The 19-inch Rays forged al­loys save weight.
