Engineered with brilliance, designed with an undeniable edge, and most importantly, fueled by passion without a redline, NISMO represents the pinnacle of racing technology for the road.
A HISTORY OF WINNING
In 1936, a 747-cc Datsun Midget took the checkered flag, and we haven’t stopped racing—and winning—since. From Japan to Le Mans, Dakar to Daytona, our dedication to innovation has made Nissan Motorsports a dominant force to be reckoned with. Whether it begins with a humble sedan like the Skyline, which we developed into the legendary GT-R, or focused machines designed to shape the future— including the groundbreaking Nissan Delta Wing and the all-electric LEAF racer—we race what we build, and we win what we race.
THE EVOLUTION OF WHO WE ARE
Since 1984, NISMO has been the official in-house racing arm of Nissan. Started 30 years ago by a group of maverick Nissan engineers, the NISMO name is synonymous with passion, expertise, and the heights of Nissan performance—not to mention decades of racing dominance.

PASSION WITHOUT A REDLINE
With a free-breathing, high-revving 344-ps NISMO V6, massive brakes, bigger, wider tyres, and a suspension tuned for competition, this is the most focused Nissan Z car ever offered for the street.
Nissan 370Z NISMO features massive 14” 4-piston front brakes and 13.8” 2-piston rear brakes—the largest brakes ever offered on a 370Z®. It also takes a page from the GT-R® playbook, sporting high-rigidity brake hoses and performance brake fluid.
FORGED ALLOY WHEELS
RAYS forged aluminium-alloy wheels with a distinct NISMO two-tone finish are outfitted with aggressive, low-profile Bridgestone Potenza S001 tyres. Staggered-width 19”x9.5” front and 19”x10.5” rear sizes ensure both nimbleness and cornering grip.
Poised to devour a day at the track, the aggressive, competition-tuned independent suspension will satisfy even the most demanding drivers. Up front and in back, we’ve added stiffer springs that decrease travel and help limit body roll.
VIBRATION DAMPERS AND CHASSIS REINFORCEMENT
Special body dampers mounted up front on the frame rail and in back under the cargo area help control body vibrations for better control and precise steering. The Nissan 370Z NISMO also features braces on the front struts, which aid in improving overall body rigidity.
H-PIPE FREE-FLOW DUAL EXHAUST
A free-flow dual exhaust combined with an H-pipe configuration reduces back pressure by up to 30%. The result: responsive upperend power for an exhilarating redline rush and an exhaust note that’s pure performance.
CHEATING THE WIND
It required decades of motorsport experience and years of wind tunnel tweaking to develop its aerodynamic profile and handling capabilities, but NISMO engineers met the need for serious downforce without compromising its iconic lines and low drag coefficient.
DESIGNED FOR MINIMUM DRAG
The body of the Nissan 370Z NISMO provides significant downforce, yet doesn’t compromise on aerodynamics. Extensive wind-tunnel testing was used to minimize drag—often a by-product of highdownforce designs—to create a vehicle that is both sleek and aggressive.
ith all its added power under the bonnet, the Nissan 370Z NISMO needed a little more downforce to keep it glued to the road. So the front fascia has been given a track-tested redesign, and the rear diffuser and spoiler have been reworked. The result is extra downforce that helps the driver maintain stability at very high speeds.
Outfitted with sporty red accents and grippy Alcantara, the Nissan 370Z NISMO’s interior design makes you feel completely connected the instant you sit down.
If you love to drive, there’s no better place to be. From the leather- and Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel with its signature red band at 12 o’clock, to the tasteful red stitching that accentuates the personal feel of the cabin, it’s designed for a singularly unique driving experience.
SIGNATURE NISMO RED TACHOMETER
The Nissan 370Z NISMO has a vivid, illuminated red tachometer sitting right in the centre of the gauge cluster, so you’ll always know exactly how hard you’re pushing its 344-ps engine.
PERFORMANCE DRIVEN DESIGN
Everything is easily reached and operated—centre console controls are shaped to be identifiable by touch, the low centre armrest cover facilitates shifting, and the steering wheel fits your hands precisely.
LEATHER- AND ALCANTARA-APPOINTED RECARO SEATS
All new for 2015, the Recaro performance seats help keep you right where you belong—even through the sharpest corners. These leatherappointed seats were built to fit you like a glove, and feature contrasting red inserts in grippy Alcantara, integrated headrests, firm bolsters, and both an embossed Recaro logo and an embroidered NISMO logo.
