2015 Nissan 370Z NISMO Gets New Styling, Transmission

Nissan's cream-of-the-crop 370Z NISMO is the Z with the most sporting intentions, amplified with specialty parts from Nissan's NISMO performance division. The track-ready NISMO is further polished for 2015 with new bodywork similar to its supercar GT-R NISMO sibling; it also gets an available seven-speed automatic transmission for the first time plus a feature-heavy Tech grade model.

Perhaps most notable is the shrunken rear spoiler for 2015 and new, more aerodynamic-looking NISMO styling that Nissan says is fully functional and optimizes front and rear downforce. The red accent stripe from front to back is a NISMO staple, which is also included on the aforementioned GT-R NISMO, Nissan Juke NISMO and NISMO RS models.

For the first time, a seven-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and rev matching is optional; it joins the six-speed manual transmission — non-NISMO 370Zs also use a seven-speed automatic. Other new options include the Tech grade 370Z NISMO that adds navigation, 7-inch touch-screen, backup camera, Bose audio system, satellite radio and Bluetooth streaming audio.

The NISMO 370Z is more than just an appearance package with an additional 18 horsepower compared to the regular 370Z, a retuned suspension with unique springs and stabilizer bars, plus larger brakes and a limited-slip differential, all standard. The package's lightweight 19-inch wheels are restyled for 2015 with a new twin five-spoke design; a dark gray finish replaces the previous wheels' silver coating.

Pricing for the 370Z NISMO and newly optional equipment will be available closer to when the car goes on sale in July. The outgoing 2014 model started at $43,830 with destination.
