The 2007 NISMO 350Z, a most hardcore model in Nissan’s 350Z lineup, will arrive in dealerships in July. The addition is the NISMO aerodynamics package that includes a new front fascia with a highly extroverted front chin spoiler, side skirts and a new rear fascia with a diffuser big enough on which to throw a picnic for two. The 350Z also features a specially tuned independant multi-link suspension, big Brembo brakes, a NISMO-tuned exhaust and NISMO gunmetal gray RAYS lightweight 5-spoke forged-alloy wheels wearing Bridgestone Potenzas. The front wheels are 18-inches large while the rears grow to 19-inches. The interior features exclusive black cloth seats with red inserts and red stitching throughout, as well as NISMO white and gray gauges.
While we’ve never been disappointed with Nissan’s VQHR 3.5L V6, which in this case pumps out 306 horsepower and 268 ft-lbs. of torque just like the standard Z, we are a bit disappointed the NISMO isn’t fitted with the new 3.7L version planned for the 2008 Infiniti G37 Coupe. It was probablay a timing thing and the larger V6 will end up in the 350Z soon enough.
