Nissan 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept: Just The One… For Now

Like what you see? Well, you best be getting your thoughts off to Nissan’s notice, because this beauty is yet another concept bent on showing off the brand’s capabilities.

"While the 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept is just a performance study at this point, you can see its potential as a production model," said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations U.S., Nissan North America. "First, we've injected all the performance equipment from a 370Z NISMO Coupe. Inside, since the interior is on display whenever the top is down, it features the full NISMO treatment, as well as a few special custom touches."

Details are scarce for now, but we can speak of the car’s 3.7-litre V6 engine which makes 350 horses, and the standardization of a NISMO-tuned suspension here.

As with the 370Z NISMO Coupe we saw unveiled at the Tokyo Auto Salon last year, the Roadster here has largely been inspired by the form and function of the almighty GT-R, whilst featuring a few unique traits of its own, such as a custom-designed carbon-fiber rear spoiler. Inside, you get the NISMO-styled interior, black Recaro sports seats with a custom shade of off-white Ultrasuede inserts.

Come on, Nissan. Make this one already, will you?
