Do you know high performance? The Nissan 370Z NISMO does!

It isn't as hardcore as a Nissan GT-R , but it certainly is very sporty. The Nissan Z-cars have been around for a long time and the 2015 370Z is the latest iteration of a long line of Z-cars that have come and gone.Last year, Nissan updated the 370Z Roadster with new features like daytime running lights, an updated front fascia without compromising on the looks. The coupe has nice high shoulder and confident looks. Chopping off the roof hasn't ruined the handsome exterior of the 370Z either.

Two Nissan 370Z’s have shattered a new world record! Not only is this one of the few auto manufacture records to be broken, but now the Nissan Z cars hold the longest twin vehicle drift. Two Nissan 370Z coupes were paired side by side along a long wet track. The record committee set the minimum distance required to set the new world record at 15.5 miles. The record was beat by the modified Z’s drifting around the track uninterrupted for 17.7 miles!

The Nissan 370Z – One of the Top Cars that Dominates Both Road and Track According to AutoTrader

The Nissan 370Z  - one of the top cars that dominates both road and track according to AutoTrader

 

Almost as soon as cars were invented, people were racing them -- the same way they raced horses, and the same way they raced on foot. The Encyclopedia Britannica states that the first organized motor race in the United States was on Thanksgiving Day, 1895, running from Chicago to Evanston, IL, and back. Not only are motorsports a whole lot of fun, they also improve automotive technology and drum up sales. AutoTrader lists the Nissan 370Z  as one of the cars that owes at least part of their fine reputations to the laudable human trait of wanting to do better than the next guy.

“Most drivers try not to move their cars sideways. But in the sport of drifting, sideways is the only way to go. Big, tire-smoking power slides from one end of the course to the other -- it's a fabulous spectacle. Formula Drift is an import from Japan, and perhaps unsurprisingly, many of the participating cars are also Japanese imports. The current 2014 Formula Drift leader is American Chris Forsberg, driving a Nissan 370Z. It's perfect for drifting, because it has a front-engine/rear-drive layout resulting in a fine balance of weight between the front and back. A carbon fiber drive shaft transmits engine power to the rear wheels, meaning it gets lighter weight and quicker responses than it would with a regular metal shaft.”

Do you have a need for speed? The Nissan 370Z is available at all 7 Mossy Nissan locations.

DUBAI – GT Academy Middle East judge Abdo Feghali – aka Dado, aka King of Drift – shows the new international recruits how to boss an epic drift in a 370Z.

 

Salman Al Khater won the first GT Academy Middle East competition in 2012. He has won an international endurance race and, along with Ashley Oldfield and Tomas Scheckter, took a class win at the Britcar 1000kms at Silverstone.

"GT Academy is getting huge international interest," said Nissan's Director of Global Morosports, Darren Cox. "We know that there are gamers outside of the traditional GT Academy territories that want a shot at winning. Nissan is an international company with global ambitions, and it's exciting that GT Academy reflects that."

Hop in your Nissan and get on the road with our top 5 San Diego Road Trips:

Hop in your Nissan and get on the road with our top 5 San Diego Road Trips:

 

Pacific Coast Highway: Roll down your windows, crank up your favorite road tunes, cruise through Malibu with the wind in your hair, and remember why you love living in the Golden State. We recommend taking Highway 1 from Malibu to Santa Barbara for a classic California experience. And dinner at La Super Rica, Julia Child’s favorite Mexican restaurant, makes a classic end to an oh-so-SoCal day.
Grand Teton National Park: The lonely highways and breathtaking vistas of this photogenic national park are only an hour from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and all the more beguiling in the lingering twilight of a midsummer evening. Signal Mountain Road is a classic 1,000-foot climb to a sweeping overview of the Tetons and surrounding valley. Bring binoculars to spot the wildlife in the valley (they like to drink from the alpine lakes).
Cascade Loop Scenic Highway, Washington: This gorgeous 440-mile highway loop starts a half-hour north of Seattle and winds through snow-peaked mountains, quaint towns, glacier-fed lakes and the heart of Washington apple country. cascadeloop.com.
 
Denver: Surprisingly, the Mile-High City clocks more annual hours of sunshine than San Diego does?—?all the more reason to take advantage of its 200-plus city parks, 850 miles of urban bike trails and close proximity to Rocky Mountain National Park. After a day in the great outdoors, take advantage of Denver’s buzzing new restaurant scene with a focus on local cuisine. We love the bison ribs at upscale BBQ house Big Hoss, and the salumi bar and Italian small plates at Osteria Marco. denver.org.
California’s Gold Country: Whitewater rafting on the American River, hiking and camping in Yosemite, fishing in serene lakes in the Sierra Foothills and other wholesome fresh-air pursuits await in the region that put California on the map. ­calgold.com.
Southern Oregon Coast: Spend your weekend on the People’s Coast, where you’ll find sunny weather, rocky sea cliffs, windswept vistas, Rogue River rapids, 150-foot sand dunes and classic beach towns serving up fish-and-chips, saltwater taffy and local microbrews. ­Make the fishing town of Newport your home base and spend a night at the Rogue Brewery B&B (“bed & beer”), where rooms come with complimentary bottles of ale. One of Oregon’s most popular breweries is right downstairs. Don’t miss a stop at the original location of Mo’s, an Oregon chowder-house chain that’s become an institution. visittheoregoncoast.com.

NISMO Global Debut

NISMO Global Debut

 

FONTANA DAM, North Carolina - There was a surprise "guest" today at ZDAYZ, the annual gathering of hundreds of Nissan, Datsun and NISMO owners and enthusiasts - the world debut of the new 2015 Nissan 370Z NISMO. A solid progress for 2015, the new 370Z NISMO model features exterior, interior and performance refinements, along with an expanded model selection that includes both 6-speed manual and 7-speed automatic transmissions and a new 370Z NISMO Tech grade.

"NISMO is the heart and soul of Nissan performance, both for the track and on the street, so it's fitting that we are showing the dramatic new 2015 370Z NISMO for the first time at a gathering of our most loyal and enthusiast owners," said Nissan Chief Planning Officer and Executive Vice President Andy Palmer. "The new 370Z NISMO joins the recently introduced Nissan GT-R NISMO and Nissan JUKE NISMO RS, giving performance fans a range of fresh, factory tuned NISMO models to enjoy."

2015 Nissan 370Z NISMO

The most striking change for the 2015 370Z NISMO is its revised exterior design. Its GT-R-inspired functional and fully integrated aerodynamic body pieces have been redesigned to provide an aggressive and more aerodynamic new appearance - as well as optimizing front and rear downforce. Key changes include a new, deep front fascia with LED Hyper Daytime Running Lights, black headlight bezels, NISMO emblem and signature NISMO red stripe accent on the integrated front chin spoiler. The red accent continues down the redesigned side sills, on the black-color sideview mirrors and across the lower portion of the redesigned rear fascia. The unique NISMO rear spoiler has been reshaped and downsized.

The standard 19-inch NISMO super-lightweight forged aluminum-alloy wheels by RAYS also have been restyled for 2015 with a twin-five spoke design and a charcoal gray machine-finish (formerly silver).

Inside, the unique NISMO-styled interior is enhanced with redesigned black-and-red Recaro® leather-appointed seats with Alcantara® accents. The new seats, co-developed with Recaro®, are exclusively designed for the 370Z NISMO to provide more uniform body pressure and better all-direction holding during spirited acceleration, braking and cornering. They also play a key role in providing driving excitement by maximizing the harmony between driver and machine. The interior also features red seat trim and stitching with NISMO logo, an Alcantara®-appointed leather-wrapped steering wheel and NISMO red tachometer.

Also new for 2015 is the 370Z NISMO Tech model, which adds a hard drive-based Nissan Navigation System with 7.0-inch VGA touch-sensitive display, RearView Monitor, Bose® Audio System, SiriusXM Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately), Streaming Audio via Bluetooth®, auto-dimming rearview mirror and HomeLink® Universal Transceiver.

As in previous years, the 2015 370Z NISMO is powered by a potent 350-horsepower 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control (VVEL). The engine is matched with an exclusive, tuned H-configured exhaust system design, muffler tuning and  an optimized calibration is installed to help create 18 horsepower more than a standard 370Z Coupe. Torque is rated at 276 lb-ft.

Two transmission choices are offered for the first time on the Z NISMO model. The close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission features standard SynchroRev Match®, the world's first synchronized downshift rev matching manual transmission, which allows rev-matched heel-toe-like downshifting. Newly available is a refined 7-speed automatic with Downshift Rev Matching (DRM), Adaptive Shift Control and manual shift mode with paddle shifters.

The 370Z NISMO also features a refined 4-wheel independent suspension, NISMO-branded strut tower brace for enhanced body rigidity and a pair of performance dampers to help minimize road-input vibrations and help contribute to the NISMO 370Z's high levels of handling and performance feel. The NISMO tuned suspension includes special springs and stabilizer bars. Large Nissan Sport Brakes and a Viscous Limited-Slip Differential (VLSD) - with a shorter final drive ratio for better acceleration feel - are also standard on the 2015 370Z NISMO.

The 2015 370Z NISMO is offered in just four exterior colors – Solid Red, Magnetic Black, Brilliant Silver and Pearl White. It is set to go on sale at Nissan dealers nationwide in July 2014.

"There's much more to love about the 370Z NISMO than ever before – the new appearance inside and out, enhanced handling, new wheels, more technology and a choice of transmissions," added Palmer. "Our fans here at ZDAYZ want only the best and that's what this new 370Z NISMO delivers."

The 2014 Nissan 370Z Coupe

The 2014 Nissan 370Z Coupe

 

A DESIGN MORE THAN 40 YEARS IN THE MAKING

It's a living legend. With the emphasis on living. The iconic lines, low center of gravity, wide track, and short wheelbase give it that unmistakable, instantly recognizable profile.

DRIVER OBSESSED COCKPIT

The 370Z® employs a three-layer design philosophy that makes you feel completely connected the instant you sit down.

 

STORAGE FOR THE REAL WORLD

Trunk Space

The rear cargo area offers plenty of open space for the important things in lif - like golf clubs. An available retractable cargo cover helps keep things out of sight. Inside the cabin, clever built-in storage means everything has a place, and a hidden compartment behind the passenger's seat helps conceal valuables.

IT'S NOT A CAR, IT'S AN EXPERIENCE

332-hp 3.7-L V6.

The 370Z® is powered by a 332-horsepower, 3.7-liter V6. The engine features Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL®) technology that continuously tunes valve timing for quicker response and optimal fuel efficiency. All this engineering may sound intriguing on paper, but the exhilaration from idle to the 7,500-rpm redline is pure magic.

MAY THE G-FORCE BE WITH YOU

Handling & Brakes

A low center of gravity and a wide stance give it ultra-responsive handling and enhanced cornering. The relatively short wheelbase and overall length of the 370Z® make for incredible maneuverability. But you still need to stop, so the most powerful 370Z® Coupe ever has available 14" front rotors and the gripping power of 4-piston front calipers.

Aerodynamics

All 370Z® models feature zero front lift. If you're after even more performance, go with the Sport Package. It includes a lower front chin aero deflector and rear spoiler for zero rear lift.

Smart Engineering

To harness all 332 hp, our engineers improved the design and material composites for key rotating components. The available 19" RAYS® forged alloy wheels are stronger and lighter than typical cast wheels. And the reduced-rotating mass on the lighter, incredibly strong carbon-fiber composite driveshaft helps the engine rev more quickly.

A SHIFT IN CONSCIOUSNESS

SynchroRev Match® Manual Transmission

SynchroRev technology monitors the clutch, shift lever, and vehicle speed so that when you downshift, the system "blips" the throttle to the ideal engine rpm for a supremely smooth downshift. It also works when upshifting to give you seamless acceleration. If you want more traditional performance, you can turn the system off with the touch of a button.

 

7-speed Automatic Transmission

A 7-speed automatic transmission gives you the best of a manual and an automatic—a wide spread of gearing for heart-pounding acceleration, while still providing improved efficiency and quiet cruising at higher speeds.

350 HP WITH ATTITUDE

Its name is synonymous with passion, expertise, and especially the height of Nissan performance. NISMO® puts it all into everything it builds, from championship-winning racecars and accessories for street cars, to one of the world's most desirable sports cars—370Z® NISMO®. With bumped up power and pumped-up handling, it has transformed into a sports car singularly worthy of being branded NISMO®.

 

THE SOUND OF PERFORMANCE

Dual Exhaust

A free-flow dual exhaust combined with H-pipe configuration reduces back pressure up to 30%. The result: responsive upper-end power for an exhilarating redline rush and an exhaust note that's pure performance.

SERIOUS POWER

Engine

Combine the Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL®) technology with a free-flowing dual exhaust to reduce back pressure and ultimately increase high-end power. Listen to the deep, mellow rumble turn into an unmistakable battle cry as it revs to its 7,400 RPM redline. Feel the exhilaration of responsive power that proves this 370Z® is truly for the pure performance aficionado.

The Nissan 370Z is available at all 7 Mossy Nissan locations in San Diego.

Nissan Racing team takes the Dogzilla Food Truck for a ride!

Nissan Racing team takes the Dogzilla Food Truck for a ride! 

IRVINE, Calif. - The words "food" and "truck" combined can invoke the kind of misery-on-wheels that restocks airplane galleys. But not at Nissan 360.
 
At Nissan's global showcase of products and technologies in California, two food trucks - The Lime Truck (TLC) and Dogzilla - were lime-green chariots serving the best SoCal has to offer. And like Cinderella getting dressed up for the ball, tacos and hotdogs never had it so good.
 
"Foodies need not fret: The Lime Truck has arrived," so went the slogan for the Orange County-based taco truck.
 
TLT beckoned N360 guests daily from 11am to 2pm, while the Ultimate Taco (12-hour pulled pork, cojita cheese, homemade guacamole and chipotle honey cabbage) and the Sweet and Spicy Steak Taco (marinated hanger steak, Asian slaw and homemade wontons) enticed hungry journalists, confirming why TLT is royalty on the California food-truck scene.
Winner of the Food Network's 2011 The Great Food Truck Race and boasting a Twitter following over 10,000 strong, TLT now has an empire of three trucks and two brick-and-mortar eateries in Los Angeles and Orange counties.
 
All its ingredients are organic, locally sourced from partner Melissa's Produce, including the ghost peppers (bhut jolokia chiles) in the Death Sauce, which made the mouths of brave TLT taco eaters at N360 burn like the 110-degree desert sands surrounding the tracks.
What comes next?
 
The Lime Truck's Alex Demag - and high school buddy of TLT founder-owner Daniel Shemtob - says a third location in the Irvine Spectrum is planned for the cars in 2014.
The Lime Truck is often kept company by the Dogzilla team. Established around the same time as TLT, in 2010, Dogzilla unleashes the condiments of Asia on its dogs, including teriyaki sauce, furikake seasoning, fried eggs - and even yakisoba.
The Yaki Dog is a cajun pork link topped with yakisoba noodles, red ginger, okonomiyaki sauce, and aonori - all true to Dogzilla's slogan of "Not your typical wiener." But if you're not digging Asian-style dogs, Dogzilla offers the Ball Park - with chili, onions and cheddar cheese - or a classic beef frank, the Plain Wiener.
 
Dogzilla's Chris Le says owners Bac Dang and Martin Tse wanted to put a twist on hotdogs and with the success of fusion decided on Asian trimmings. Clearly, it's worked.
Following the food truck boom around 2010 that took mobile munchies into the hundreds, only a few remain.
 
Dogzilla and The Lime Truck keep their L.A. and O.C. entourages up to date on their whereabouts through social media. Did we mention they do weddings?
And after a main course, what better way to go than ice cream. Ben & Jerry's was on site with none other than Maan Sidhu - owner of the only B&J's in Orange County - scooping the likes of Chunky Monkey and Cherry Garcia into cups and cones for overheated guests.
By the end of the event, they had a chance to sample Nissan 360's auto offerings: the Nissan 370Z NISMO and the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3, and even race their own vehicles for a quick taste of food truck performance on the track.
