If you’re looking for a new Nissan 350z, the NISMO version is the way to go. It’s got a custom ECU tune, big Brembo brakes, a Tomei exhaust system, and a lot more performance goodies. Plus, the V6 has a louder and deeper growl. And the color is neon yellow shade, with fuchsia-plated wheels and a translucent casement. That’s definitely the sexiest color I’ve ever seen in a Nissan.
In addition to the color, the NISMO version of the 350z has a custom headlight with demon eyes. A carbon fiber insert is also added to the roof, while Zakustech louvers are used on the front. The rear strut-tower brace, common to the 200 series Zs, is cool-looking. But it’s a little obtrusive and will eat up stowage space in the hatch area.
To finish the car off, the interior is updated with more functions and updated center gauges. The wheels are a set of Forgestar F14 deep concave wheels in Gunmetal. You can get these for $4,500. They come with a refundable core charge. So, if you like the wheels but want a different style, you can exchange them for another model. Just be sure to return the old ones before you receive the new ones.
While it might not have the horsepower of a Dodge Neon SRT-4, it still packs 215 horsepower, and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just under six seconds. This is not a bad deal for a $20K car. Unless you’re going to use it as a daily driver, it’s probably better off without the fuchsia-plated wheels.
