Nissan's racy 370Z NISMO gets a slightly revised look for 2014 with a new exterior colour and dark grey accents with red stripes.
"We're unifying the look and feel of these distinctive (370Z and Juke) NISMO models and paving the way for additional NISMO vehicles to follow," said Pierre Loing, vice-president, product and advanced planning and strategy, Nissan Americas.
" Since its introduction as part of the original Nissan 350Z lineup, (it) has embodied the spirit of NISMO – race-proven engineering that is attainable," he added.
Solid Red replaces the previous Magma Red as one of four 370Z NISMO exterior colours.
Interior enhancements include the addition of a new steering wheel with Alcantara appointments and red accents, and a red NISMO tachometer
The NISMO continues to be powered by a 3.7-litre DOHC V-6 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control (VVEL), rated at 350 horsepower at 7,400 rpm and 276 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm.
Just one transmission is offered, a close-ratio 6-speed manual with Nissan's SynchroRev Match synchronized downshift rev matching system.
Along with the high-performance engine and racing-inspired exterior and interior styling, the NISMO 370Z features a specially-tuned suspension with higher spring and anti-roll bar rates, increased roll stiffness and revised front and rear damping rates.
Unique super-lightweight, 19 inch RAYS forged alloy wheels are shod with Bridgestone Potenza S001 Y-rated high-performance tires (245/40ZR19 front, 285/35ZR19 rear).
The braking system includes a variable ratio brake pedal, high-rigidity brake hoses, R35 Special II fluid and red-finish calipers.
The NISMO 370Z will go on sale this summer and will include the same Nissan New Vehicle Limited Warranty as other Nissan vehicles.
