2007 Nissan Nismo 350Z | Road Test | Edmunds.com
For Edmunds' Inside Line article: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Followup/articleId=121814 Five years since its rebirth, the Nissan 350Z remains one of the world's great performance bargains. But it isn't pretty. It isn't subtle. And it doesn't care whether you think the cabin is stylish or not. This is all part of the hard-core image Nissan has built for the Z. And rather than back away from it as the end of the Z-car's model cycle nears, Nissan is pushing this car's character right to the edge of reason.

Nissan 350Z - PURE Racing Sound
Best Nissan 350 Z - AGA Auspuff Sound - sehr lauter und kerniger V6 Sound, wie ich finde - eine der besten Abgasanlangen für den 350Z. Obwohl es keine Klappenanlage ist, hört sich diese extrem laut an - man fällt damit auf jeden Fall auf - sowohl positiv als auch negativ :D • Exhaust: Invidia N1 Acceleration Sound REVS Launch Control Revving Shift Beschleunigung





132332 / 2008 Nissan 350Z NISMO
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7jybx4k With a comprehensive makeover that includes enough suspension modifications to make the Z a veritable track-day weapon, the NISMO Z is much more than a simple wheel and badge package that automakers often try to pass off as a limited edition. This NISMO is number 879, identified by a special aluminum plaque on the console, and unless you've got your SCCA competition license, I'm guessing that this car has higher limits than you do. Externally, the NISMO refines the 350Z's shape, which was already cutting edge and contemporary. A new chin spoiler with a larger grille opening, different side skirts, and a revised rear valence help improve the NISMO's aerodynamic efficiency, while a more aggressive rear wing actually functions as it should by plastering the Z's rear wheels to the pavement. Finished in Magnetic Black Pearl, the car is low, wide, and sinister, with a stance that looks like it would prefer to hunt rather than be on display. However, this car is certainly ready for display, having been beautifully maintained for the past several years by a very enthusiastic owner who has kept the finish buffed and unmarked. The Z's 3.5 liter V6 still lives under the hood, delivering a stout 306 horsepower and 268 pounds of torque. Nissan's goal wasn't to create a drag strip terror, but to develop a chassis that can fully exploit the power that's already there. As a result, it's a durable, reliable dance partner that isn't so high strung that you need to worry about hurting it at the track or after an afternoon of spirited driving. Taking a peek under the hood and you'll find a NISMO intake system that uses dual conical air filter elements and special tubing to create that unique intake woosh. It's obvious that this car has never been used in inclement weather, and definitely not in the winter—bright plated parts remain shiny, the plastic is undamaged by heat or wear, and there's absolutely no evidence of leakage or damage anywhere. The engine is backed by Nissan's slick-shifting 6-speed manual, whose well-chosen ratios make the most of the V6's broad power curve. But the real magic of the NISMO is in the suspension, which uses upgraded shocks, springs, and sway bars to plaster the car to the pavement without a big ride comfort penalty. Unique body dampers are designed to reduce vibrations and harshness, while a handful of chassis braces stiffen the body shell for track duty. Massive Brembo disc brakes are fitted at all four corners. Finally, the defining feature of the NISMO is the special forged wheels with that unique charcoal gray finish and a red and white NISMO logo on the spokes. Sizing is 18s up front and 19s in back wearing Bridgestone Potenza rubber. There are big upgrades inside as well, most notably those special red and black sport seats with custom red stitching. Highly adjustable, the seats are built for track use and are exceptionally grippy. Showing minimal wear, the interior is as nicely preserved as the exterior, with excellent carpets and door panels that are like new. Special white and gray NISMO-badged gauges are nestled into the Z's dash, and the trio of auxiliary gauges atop the dash are a nice reminder that this car has DNA from the legendary 240Z running through its veins. That special aluminum number plate I mentioned earlier is fitted to the console just behind the shifter with its distinctive red stripe boot, while all the Z's standard features, from A/C and cruise control, to a powerful stereo and power windows are included. If you've found the standard Z to be a little too soft, perhaps too much of a compromise, the NISMO is for you. With expert maintenance and care since it was new, this NISMO is like a new car in every way. Call today!
