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.
