The Newwwwwww Allante!!! Err……I Meant, Z

7 Feb

Insert Bundy Bounce……

• Refreshed front fascia with vertical LED daytime running lights

• Red reflector added to rear fascia (replaces previous black center cover)

• Revised 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels (Sport Package equipped models)

• New 18-inch wheels for 370Z Coupe

• Red-finished brake calipers (Sport Package equipped models)

• Dark-finish fuel gauge trim

• Euro-tuned shock absorbers (Sport Package equipped models)

• And two new exterior colors – (Dr. Evil Voice) Magma Red (shown) and Midnight Blue

The NISMO 370Z also adds a new Bose Premium Audio Package with two additional speakers and two subwoofers, premium gun metallic dark-finish 19-inch wheels, and Nissan GT-R style high-rigidity brake hoses and performance brake fluid. The NISMO 370Z does not adopt the new front fascia/rear reflector, Euro-tuned shocks or Midnight Blue exterior color.

“Since the original 1970 Z was first introduced our goal has always been to keep the design moving forward. The changes for 2013, though subtle, go a long way in enhancing its dynamic appearance inside and out,” said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc.

As in 2012, the 2013 370Z Coupe and 370Z Coupe Touring will each be available with a standard 332-horsepower 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine and choice of 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed automatic transmission. The 2013 370Z Roadster and 370Z Roadster Touring will be offered with the same engine but with the 6-speed manual offered only with the Touring model (the 7-speed automatic transmission is available with both).

The Nissan NISMO 370Z, a tuner-Z® enthusiast’s dream, will once again cap off the lineup – offering racing-inspired exterior and interior styling, a specially tuned suspension and unique super-lightweight forged alloy wheels. Its 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine is matched with an exclusive H-configured exhaust system design, muffler tuning and optimized ECM (Engine Computer Module) control – creating 350 horsepower and 276 lb-ft of torque. Only one transmission is available, a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission with standard SynchroRev Match, which allows rev-matched heel-toe-like downshifting.

Additional details on the 2013 Nissan 370Z will be available closer to the June on-sale date.

New Tommy Kaira 350Z/Z33 Rear Valence and Exhaust

25 Oct

It’s nice to know that manufacturers are still developing new products for the Nissan 350Z even though it is no longer in production. One of Japan’s top tuning firms, Tommy Kaira, has recently released this fiberglass rear valence for the Z33. The valence takes a few design cues from the 370z to give the 350z rear a slight update. This piece is available with and without the center 370z rear fog lamp.

Also pictured is the Tommy Kaira Premium 01S High Performance Exhaust System (Click Here to View the Press Release, I should warn you that it’s in Japanese). This exhaust is constructed of SUS304 stainless steel with 76mm diameter main piping and 90mm diameter quad slash-cut tips. An optional 60mm diameter Y-Pipe/Front Pipe is also available for purchase from Tommy Kaira to be used in conjunction with this exhaust. Gaskets and hardware are included and the exhaust with the y-pipe installed is rated at a sound level of 90-92 decibels.

All of these items are available for immediate purchase. If you are interested in pricing and availability please contact us.

28 Jan

“The Z1 Auto transmission mount dramatically improved
shift engagement and eased gear selection without
sacrificing comfort. We highly recommend this
product for any Z/G enthusiast who takes their driving
seriously. Installation was easy – You must loosen the center bolt to align the two outer bolts,
other then that there were no installation issues what so ever. ”
