The 370Z Nismo is the track-honed version of Nissan’s long-running rear-wheel-drive sports car. It is fitted with a naturally-aspirated 3.7-liter V6 which produces 350 horsepower and 276 lb-ft of torque (18 hp and 6 lb-ft more than the rest of the range) and can be had with either a six-speed manual transmission or seven-speed automatic gearbox.
Straight-line performance is decent if not class-leading. However, the Nismo trim does come with an exclusive sport-tuned suspension, racing clutch, upgraded brake hoses and grippier tires than you get on the rest of the 370Z range. Standard equipment includes Recaro sport seats, a 7-inch touchscreen display, and unique Nismo aero body parts.
Prices start at $45,790 which puts the 370Z Nismo up against some strong, more modern competitors, but if you prefer your sports car to be more analog than digital then the 370Z Nismo is still worth a look.
