The Nissan 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept was unveiled today at the Chicago Auto Show, and it definitely lived up to their “Innovation that Excites” philosophy.
The Nissan 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept is designed to provide drivers the best of two worlds – the open-air driving exhilaration of a standard 370Z Roadster and the racing-inspired style and performance of a 370Z NISMO Coupe. It offers unique engine, suspension, exterior and interior features versus standard Nissan 370Z Roadster models – including a 350HP 3.7-liter V6 and NISMO-tuned suspension.
“While the 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept is just a performance study at this point, you can see its potential as a production model,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations U.S., Nissan North America. “First, we’ve injected all the performance equipment from a 370Z NISMO Coupe. Inside, since the interior is on display whenever the top is down, it features the full NISMO treatment, as well as a few special custom touches.
The Nissan 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept’s striking visual presence starts with the addition of GT-R-inspired functional and fully integrated aerodynamic body pieces, including a custom carbon-fiber rear spoiler created exclusively for use on the 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept. Inside, the NISMO-styled interior is just as stunning, anchored by black Recaro seats with custom off-white Ultrasuede inserts.”
If approved for production, the Nissan 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept would join the current Nissan 370Z NISMO coupe model, expanding the NISMO lineup to five models.
