BOAST­ING 253kW and 371Nm, Nis­san’s 370Z Nismo Coupe is the most pow­er­ful Z ever of­fered in Aus­tralia, and it’s on sale now.

The high per­for­mance sportscar is the new flag­ship of the 370Z range.

Its 3.7 litre V6 en­gine is iden­ti­cal to that of the stan­dard 370Z but adds an ex­tra 8kW of power and 8Nm of torque achieved by ex­haust sys­tem de­sign, muf­fler tun­ing and ECM (en­gine con­trol mod­ule) cal­i­bra­tion.

Also, the front and rear sus­pen­sion have been dy­nam­i­cally tuned with in­creased spring, while its rigid body struc­ture, strut tower bar brace and per­for­mance dampers help con­trol body vi­bra­tion.

The 370Z Nismo also gets sports brakes with rear vented ro­tors and four-pis­ton front and two-pis­ton rear alu­minium calipers.

There’s also an in­te­grated body kit that adds to its ag­gres­sive look and gives more front and rear down­force.

The ex­te­rior pack­age in­cludes a rear spoiler, dual ex­haust and en­gine cover, plus 19-inch forged al­loy wheels and Nismo badg­ing.

Start­ing at $61,490 for the 6-speed man­ual trans­mis­sion vari­ant, the 370Z Nismo Coupe also has a 7-speed au­to­matic op­tion with a man­ual mode con­trolled by pad­dle shifters for $63,990.

Nis­san's hot 370Z Nismo has ar­rived.
