2009 Nissan Nismo 370Z Coupe Official Details and Photos
The new NISMO 370Z is built on the Nissan Front Midship (FM) platform, which boasts a 4 wheel independent suspension. The Nismo is powered by a 3.7l DOHC V6 aluminum block engine, fitted with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control (VVEL).
The VVEL works by optimizing optimize intake valve open/close movements to allow air to enter the combustion chambers at the optimum moment. Thanks to both the engine and the tweaks made to it, Nissan Nismo 370Z's engine develops 370 horsepower at 7,400 rpm and 276 lb.-ft. of torque at 5,200 rpm.
To help improve engine performance, the side sills and a unique rear bumper help control airflow under the vehicle, while the functional rear spoiler increases downforce. The exterior of the Nismo also features sculptural fenders, upswept quarter windows, boomerang shaped headlights and taillights, vertical door handles and aluminum hood, door panels and hatchback.
The interior of the sports car is built around a scooped instrument panel with a full-length center console that separates the seats. The instrument panel includes a 3-pod cluster with oil temperature, voltmeter and clock, while the speedometer and tachometer include an “initial sweep” function, coming alive when the NISMO Z is first started.
There will be only one version of the Nismo 370Z Coupe, which will come in five exterior colors: Pearl White, Brilliant Silver, Magnetic Black, Solid Red and Platinum Graphite. The new coupe will be available in showrooms across the US starting June 2009, at a price that is yet to be disclosed.
