Nissan Z Nismo coming soon
After being spotted testing a few months ago by its loyal fanbase, it's time for Nissan to finally shed the camouflage of the all-new Z NISMO.
But wait for it, they are not launching the high-performance sports car just yet. Nissan only previewed the upcoming model, showing off its striking looks with the signature NISMO treatment as well as some tire-slaying antics courtesy of three-time Formula Drift champion Chris Forsberg.
As seen from the camouflaged prototypes earlier this year, the all-new Z NISMO gets a different design for its wraparound body kit. In typical NISMO fashion, it gets the chin splitters with red contrasting accents, plus special lightweight NISMO wheels.
Inside, the all-new Z NISMO gets the red Recaro seats with NISMO stitching on the headrest, plus it gets its own unique graphics for the instrument screen.
Nissan has yet to reveal the power figures of the all-new Z NISMO. The standard Z has a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 that puts out 406 PS and 475 Nm of torque, but we won't be surprised if the NISMO version reaches the 500 PS mark.
Also, we expect Nissan to carry over the two transmission choices for the Z NISMO. These include a 9-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual with a SynchroRev Match feature.
Nissan says the all-new Z NISMO is coming out sometime in the US summer. That means we can expect the two-seater sports car to arrive somewhere between this June to the month of August.
