  • 2015 Nissan 370Z NISMO officially revealed ahead of July launch
  • NISMO 370Z offers sporty body kit, 18 extra horsepower
  • Nissan adding optional automatic to NISMO 370Z for first time ever

Nissan has officially rolled out an all-new high-performance NISMO version of its sporty 370Z Coupe. Set to go on sale in July, the new NISMO 370Z features extra engine power, unique styling and a long list of upgrades under the skin, including a newly available transmission.

The most obvious changes to the NISMO 370Z over the standard model come to the coupe's exterior. As with past NISMO 370Z models, there's a large rear wing, huge exhausts and a sporty body kit. The latest NISMO 370Z also boasts unique wheels and red accents throughout the body kit, from the front bumper and rocker panels to the rearview mirrors.

Inside, the NISMO 370Z is also updated compared to the standard model, though revisions don't go as far as they do on the outside. There are red and black Recaro leather seats with Alcantara accents, along with red seat trim, red stitching, an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and a red NISMO tachometer.

For most enthusiasts, those updates aren't as important as the ones under the hood. While the current 370Z features a 332-horsepower 3.7-liter V6, NISMO models boast an impressive 350 hp, primarily due to a sportier exhaust. Torque is also increased, from the standard model's 270 lb-ft to a slightly more muscular 276 lb-ft.

But the biggest change to the NISMO 370Z is a newly available transmission. While the sports car's 6-speed manual still remains standard, a newly optional 7-speed automatic is also available, marking the first time that an automatic transmission has ever been offered in the NISMO 370Z. We're interested to see whether the 7-speed will find many buyers, since most enthusiasts tend to gravitate toward manual transmissions.

According to Nissan, the latest NISMO 370Z -- which also features improved sport suspension for better handling -- is scheduled to reach dealers in July. Although pricing has not yet been announced, we wouldn't expect a huge jump over today's base figure of around $44,000 with shipping.

What it means to you: The 2015 Nissan 370Z NISMO is the sportiest 370Z yet, and now it's available to shoppers who prefer automatic to manual.
