Passion without a redline

Performance that pushes the envelope

A free-breathing, high-revving 350-horsepower NISMO-tuned V6. Massive brakes. Bigger, wider tires. And a suspension tuned for competition. Any one of these features would give you a smile that would last for days - combined, it's the drive of a lifetime. [[161]]

It takes tunnel vision to be this slick

Proven Aerodynamics

Decades of motorsport experience and years of wind-tunnel tweaking helped NISMO engineers meet the need for serious downforce without compromising its iconic lines and low drag coefficient.

Designed for minimum drag

The Nissan 370Z NISMO provides significant downforce, yet doesn’t compromise on aerodynamics. Extensive wind-tunnel testing was used to minimize drag — often a by-product of high-downforce designs — to create a vehicle that is both sleek and aggressive.

NISMO History

A history of winning

In 1936, a 747-cc Datsun® Midget® took the checkered flag, and we haven’t stopped racing — and winning — since. From Japan to Le Mans, Dakar to Daytona, our dedication to innovation has made Nissan Motorsports a dominant force to be reckoned with. Whether it begins with a humble sedan like the Skyline®, or starts as a pure, focused competition machine like our Nissan GT-R LM NISMO Le Mans prototype — we race what we build, and we win what we race.
