In conjunction with the U.S. debut of the new 2013 Nissan Juke Nismo - and the ongoing expansion of the Nismo brand worldwide - Nissan gave attendees at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show a preview of the 2014 Nissan 370Z Nismo. Set to go on sale at Nissan U.S. dealers nationwide in summer 2013, the Nissan 370Z Nismo follows the new Nismo design theme with distinctive new exterior and interior accents.
Pierre Loing, Vice President, Product and Advanced Planning and Strategy, Nissan Americas said: "The 370Z Nismo, since its introduction as part of the original Nissan 350Z lineup, has embodied the spirit of Nismo - race-proven engineering that is attainable. With the enhancements for the 2014 model year and the addition of the new Juke Nismo, we're unifying the look and feel of these distinctive Nismo models and paving the way for additional Nismo vehicles to follow."
With the current Nissan 370Z Nismo setting the bar as a tuner-Z® enthusiast's dream straight from the factory and fully warranted - offering 350 horsepower, racing-inspired exterior and interior styling, a specially tuned suspension and unique super-lightweight forged alloy wheels - the enhancements for 2014 are designed to up the car's already strong visual impact. On the exterior, new dark gray coloring is added to the front and rear fascias, lower side sills, side mirrors and Nismo rear spoiler, with each element (except side sills) featuring Nismo-style red pinstripe accents. In addition, Solid Red replaces the previous Magma Red as one of four Nissan 370Z Nismo exterior color choices. Interior enhancements include the addition of a new steering wheel with Alcantara appointments and red accents, and a red Nismo tachometer.
