At the ZDayZ enthusiast meet in North Carolina today, Nissan unveiled the 2015 Nissan 370Z NISMO. Keeping to the core of what has made previous 370Z NISMO models great, the 2015 model adds an aggressive new look, an available 7-speed automatic transmission option, and a new 370Z NISMO Tech package.

The most dramatic visual changes to the 2015 Nissan 370Z NISMO are found at the front end, where a wider, reshaped grille opening, red splitter lip, and, at either side, vertical cooling inlets are added below LED Hyper daytime running lights. The red accent is also found on the re-shaped side sills, the side mirrors, and across the bottom of the rear bumper area. The rear spoiler has also been restyled and made smaller.
Standard equipment includes black and red Recaro seats with leather and Alcantara covering, 19-inch NISMO alloy wheels by RAYS wearing a charcoal gray machine finish, large Nissan Sport Brakes, a viscous limited-slip differential, and, of course, Nissan’s 350-horsepower, 276-pound-foot version of the 3.7-liter VQ37VHR V-6 engine. The 2015 model’s suspension has also been slightly re-tuned.
A six-speed manual transmission with SynchroRev Match is standard, but a seven-speed automatic can also be had with the 2015 model, expanding the reach of the NISMO Z beyond the previous manual-only versions.DON'T MISS: Dartz Drive Hard 6x6 G63 AMG: Die Hard With A Mercedes
The new Tech package adds a welcome touch of up-level equipment, including a hard-drive-based navigation system with 7-inch touchscreen, rear-view camera, Bose audio, streaming Bluetooth audio, and more.
Only four exterior colors are offered: Solid Red, Magnetic Black, Brilliant Silver, and Pearl White. The 2015 Nissan 370Z NISMO goes on sale in July 2014. Pricing is expected to be announced closer to the on-sale date.
