If you spent some of your teenage years in the late 90s and early 2000s, chances are you’ll have played the Gran Turismo video game before.
With hundreds of virtual cars to choose between it was always difficult picking which car to race in next… unless you had some Nismo-tuned Nissans in your garage, of course.
The Japanese Nissan tuning firm, its name abbreviated from Nissan and Motorsport, has been working its magic on the company’s products since 1984. It’s most famous for a selection of racing Nissans and its wonderfully monstrous Skyline GT-Rs – and it’s finally coming to the UK.
The first Nismo product to hit UK shores is the Nismo Juke, but more exciting still is the Nismo 370Z you see here.
Regular 370Zs are already muscular devils, but a full Nismo aero kit seems to both simplify the car’s lines and amplify its aggression. It’s also functional, improving airflow under the car, and increasing downforce and stability at speed. Suspension and chassis improvements aid handling, as do 19-inch alloy wheels.
It wouldn’t be a true Nismo without some engine work either, so power has risen from 328 to 344 PS, and torque has increased from 363 to 371 Nm. Nismo claims improved response and a 0-62 mph time of 5.2 seconds. A fruity exhaust sets the aural scene.
An Alcantara-trimmed steering wheel kicks off the cabin improvements, adorned with a race-inspired “top dead centre” marker.
Electric sports seats are standard, with Nismo badging and red stitching. A numbered Nismo plate marks out each car as something a little more special than the norm.
