Dubai, UAE, March 01, 2018: The 2018 Nissan 370Z NISMO has launched in UAE for the first time, as part of the global automaker's continued drive to bring tuned, high-performance NISMO models to the market. With a 3.7-liter V6 engine and 350 brake horsepower, the powerful 370Z NISMO is an iconic car that is set to be another favourite choice among enthusiasts throughout the UAE.
NISMO, which is Nissan's motorsport and road car performance range, was introduced regionally in 2015 with the launch of the Nissan Patrol NISMO – an instant fan favourite has seen wide success throughout the region. Following that, the legendary Nissan GT-R NISMO was rolled out in the Middle East the following year.
Kalyana Sivagnanam, President for Middle East & Regional Vice President for Africa, Middle East and India, Nissan, commented: “The introduction of the Nissan 370Z NISMO is a reflection of our continuous commitment to bringing Nissan's most hi-spec and hi-tech cars to the Middle East region. NISMO models are incredibly popular throughout these markets, and we are pleased to be offering yet another impressive NISMO-tuned car to our loyal customers and fans here. The Middle East market is a major focus for us, and we will continue to adapt our most in-demand cars for the region.”
The 2018 370Z NISMO is powered by a 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control (VVEL). The advanced powerplant is rated at 350 bhp at 7,400 rpm and 276 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm.
The VVEL system optimizes intake valve open/close movements, ensuring that airflow to the combustion chamber is both efficient and precise. The 370Z NISMO's enhanced engine power and acceleration applies an exclusive H-configured exhaust system design and muffler tuning, along with optimized ECM (Engine Control Module) calibration.
The 370Z NISMO boasts a true motorsport look and feel throughout the driver-centric two-seat cabin, complete with black and red Recaro® leather-appointed seats with Alcantara® accents that ensure the NISMO theme throughout. Designed with Recaro® specifically for the 370Z NISMO, the seats provide a more uniform body pressure and better all-direction holding during spirited acceleration, braking and cornering.
The price of the Nissan 370Z NISMO is USD 49,600.
The Nissan 370Z NISMO in detail:
The interior features red seat trim and stitching with NISMO logo, an Alcantara®-appointed leather-wrapped steering wheel and NISMO red tachometer. The tachometer and speedometer include an 'initial sweep' function, coming alive when the 370Z NISMO is first started.
Like all Nissan 370Z interiors, the layout is built around a deeply scooped instrument panel with a full-length center console separating the driver and passenger's seat. In the rear is an open cargo area with easy accessibility. The instrument panel includes a 3-pod cluster with oil temperature, voltmeter and clock, power windows with one-touch auto up/down function, power door locks with auto-lock feature and automatic climate control. Other interior details include a smooth leather-wrapped shift knob and aluminum-trimmed pedals.
Standard interior comfort and convenience features include Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Start, Bose® in-dash AM/FM/CD/AUX 8-speaker audio system, two subwoofers with illuminated steering wheel-mounted controls, USB/iPod® interface and Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System.
Advanced Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and Active Sound Enhancement (ASE) systems are standard on the 370Z NISMO. The ANC system generates cancelling sound to remove undesirable low frequency engine noise while preserving invigorating sounds of engine performance, providing a more 'pure' sound. The system is also utilized on the Nissan GT-R. The ASE enhances natural engine sounds to help bolster the driver's acceleration experience.
Advanced 350-Horsepower VVEL V6 and NISMO-Tuned Suspension
The 370Z NISMO is fitted with a refined 7-speed automatic with Downshift Rev Matching (DRM), Adaptive Shift Control and manual shift mode with paddle shifters.
The standard 370Z Coupe double-wishbone front/4-link rear suspension design suspension is specially tuned for the 370Z NISMO, offering exceptional handling – including higher spring and stabilizer bar rates and increased roll stiffness and front and rear damping factors, as well as a 0.6-inch wider track width (compared to non-NISMO models).
The 2018 370Z NISMO also features a tight, rigid body structure with a strut tower bar brace and a pair of performance dampers, which quickly and efficiently react to help control body vibrations from road input via the tires, contributing to the 370Z NISMO model's outstanding handling and performance feel.
The 370Z NISMO's long list of standard safety and security features includes the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) with dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and occupant classification sensor; front seat-mounted side impact supplemental air bags; roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags; seat belts with pretensioners and load limiters, Zone Body Construction with front and rear crumple zones, Nissan Vehicle Immobilizer System, Vehicle Security System and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).
Along with the 370Z NISMO, the 2018 Nissan 370Z is available in four 370Z Coupe and three 370Z Roadster models. Please see NissanNews.com for full information.
