Nismo 350Z

In 1969 Nissan presented for the US media the Datsun 240Z. The car has 2.4-liter inline 6-cylinder engine that produced 150 horsepower and 0-60 mph times of less than 9.0 seconds. Following the same concept in 2003 the team of designers and engineers developed a 3.5-liter VQ35DE V6 engine which produce in excess 280 horsepower.

The features of the new 350Z have an expanded power range as a result of reworking the intake port design and adopting Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS) technology. This enables the engine to deliver not only outstanding start-off acceleration and high-speed passing performance, but also torque characteristics suitable for city driving.
