The 2024 Nissan Z Nismo confirms the speculations: it’s exclusively available with an automatic transmission. However, there’s much more to this variant. It brings a surge in power, substantial chassis upgrades, and a distinctive design. The exterior sports unique features like custom front and rear bumpers, side skirts, and a prominent three-piece rear spoiler that adds downforce.
Inside, the cabin exudes refinement with its red and black leather accents, Alcantara Recaro seats, and a steering wheel adorned with the Nismo logo. But performance remains the star. The engine’s output has been amped up to 420 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque through enhanced cooling and tuning. The nine-speed automatic transmission has also been upgraded for quicker shifts.
Chassis improvements include reinforced bracing, stiffer springs, retuned shocks, and enhanced anti-roll bars. The Nismo’s advanced brakes, front and rear, along with its upgraded suspension, ensure exceptional handling. Expected to hit showrooms in the fall, the 2024 Nissan Z Nismo is set to make its mark. While pricing details aren’t available yet, the enhancements and exclusivity are sure to set it above the standard Z Performance model with the automatic transmission.
