With minor cosmetic uplift and Bose Premium Audio Package, this Japanese drifter has little to offer the customers when we look under the hood. As suspected, Nissan has now unveiled its updated mean drifter machine, the 2013 Nissan 370Z at the Chicago Auto Show. This car is assumed to be just a glimpse of what the next generation Z would be like. The 2013 Nissan 370Z is scheduled to go on sales to US in mid 2013 offering under three segments as Coupe, Roadster and NISMO Z.
On the front, we see the same aggressive drift appearance but with updated vertical LED daytime running sports lights. Front fangs have been toned down to go along with the vertical light design. The rear is updated with red reflector and 19-inch alloys for the Sport-Package. In addition, the Sport Package offers red colored brake calipers and Euro-tuned shock absorbers. While the base model, comes with a newly re-designed 18-inch alloy.
Interior is updated with features unlike most Japanese sport models with a dark theme on the fuel gauge trim. The NISMO Z owners will be treated with new Bose Premium Audio Package with two additional subwoofers and two additional speakers. The Engine did not need an update, with the 3.7L V6 offering a massive 332hp.
Nissan also offers a choice of transmission. This V6 is coupled with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic driveline. The H-configured exhaust system, tuned muffler and ECM control is optimized to give the NISMO Z an addition of 18 horses giving final output 350hp and a torque figure of 276 lb-ft.
As for the Indian fans, Nissan India offers the 370Z coupe with a 3.7L V6 with the output 320bhp and a torque of 370Nm. The transmission options are available to the Indian customers as well. This Japanese drifter is priced at 53.50 lacs.
