They'll be bigger brakes, a new intake, a throatier sounding exhaust, and like the standard Nismo, will come with front- or four-wheel drive. The former being paired to a six-speed manual, the latter to a CVT automatic. The Nismo range is set for further expansion with a more hardcore 370Z, the Nissan 370Z Nismo, which will also provide more power, a revised chassis and specific body mods.
