Nissan has unleashed a new era of sports cars with the launch of the Fairlady Z NISMO in Japan today, delivering a staggering increase in engine output and maximum torque. Boasting unique NISMO features and enhancements, this power-packed vehicle promises a dynamic driving experience.
The Fairlady Z NISMO’s engine sees a boost from an impressive 400 horsepower to a formidable 414 hp, and the torque from 350 lb/ft of torque to a high-powered 384 lb/ft. This isn’t just a car, it’s a full-blown sports machine, crafted with precision and performance in mind.
Furthermore, the transmission shift response and durability are not left out in this upgrade. Nissan has enhanced these attributes to allow for more agile gear shifts, giving drivers the control and responsiveness they desire in a sports car. Coupled with improved steering and body torsional rigidity, as well as an enhanced chassis and traction setup, the Fairlady Z NISMO allows drivers to trace their desired line with more confidence and precision.
NISMO’s distinctive aesthetic is apparent in the vehicle’s exterior and interior design. The front grille, front and rear bumpers, fender moldings, side sill protectors, rear spoiler, and rear LED fog lamps are developed exclusively for the NISMO edition. The aerodynamic performance and downforce have been significantly enhanced, thanks to the low center of gravity and a honeycomb-designed front grille mesh that enhances cooling efficiency.
Additionally, Nissan takes a sporty stance with the interior design of the Fairlady Z NISMO. It offers an amalgamation of colors and materials that improve driver focus and enhance the sporty driving experience. With a combination of black perforated Alcantara and leather material, the Recaro sports seats—designed exclusively for NISMO—offer both non-slip properties and a high-quality texture.
The Fairlady Z NISMO comes in five body colors, with a two-tone Steel Grey/Super Black option exclusive to NISMO, providing a stunningly fierce look to this high-performing machine.
For U.S. fans eagerly anticipating the Fairlady Z NISMO, it’s on its way under a different moniker—Nissan Z NISMO. The powerful, sporty, and finely-tuned model is set to hit the U.S. market this fall, promising to take the sports car sector by storm. With the launch of the Fairlady Z NISMO, the automaker sets a new benchmark in the driver-focused sports car segment, and we can’t wait to see it on the roads.
