The 2024 Nissan Z NISMO enhances the sports car lineup with increased horsepower, NISMO-tuned suspension, and aerodynamic upgrades.
The 2024 Nissan Z NISMO is a head-turner engineered to set lap records on race circuits with its upgraded powertrain and aerodynamic design. Building on the already robust capabilities of its Z Sport and Performance grades, the NISMO version is tailored for those craving next-level excitement and dynamic performance. Under the hood, the twin-turbo 3.0L V6 engine’s output jumps to 420 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque. The increased power comes courtesy of improved cooling, a revised electronic wastegate control, and an independent ignition spark timing strategy, ensuring robust performance across the rev range.
Inside, the driver-focused cockpit features red-anodized engine-start and drive mode buttons, Recaro seats, and a leather and an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, with a sporty red marker at the 12 o’clock position. The Z NISMO stands out with its unique “G-Nose,” thin honeycomb mesh grille, and a taller/wider rear spoiler, aimed at improving aerodynamic efficiency. The redesigned front fascia and rear bumper aid in air separation and reduced drag, while a dark metallic gray katana-blade styling element adds an extra flair.
The NISMO comes equipped with an enhanced nine-speed automatic transmission that delivers faster and more dynamic shifting for track use. Nissan also introduces a new Sport+ drive mode, offering a racetrack-tuned shift program that takes full advantage of the powertrain’s faster downshift capability. Suspension upgrades are equally engineered, with unique stabilizer bars, a stiffer spring rate, and retuned dampers, contributing to confident track-ready performance. Complementing these upgrades are Dunlop SP SPORT MAXX GT600 tires and lightweight, gloss black RAYS 19-inch wheels. The 2024 Nissan Z NISMO is set to go on sale this fall, and while pricing details are still under wraps, one thing is clear, this NISMO is designed to make every drive an exhilarating experience.
