Nissan 2013 Juke Nismo and Nissan 2014 370Z Nismo Debut At Chicago Auto Show

2014 Nissan 370Z Nismo

Nissan unveiled the 2013 Juke Nismo and 2014 370Z Nismo at the Chicago Auto Show and they’re sexy slices of factory-tuned performance that you’re going to love.

The 2014 Nissan 370Z Nismo gets a sporty new upgrade and an even more striking appearance. Gray accents combine with red stripes inside and out a new red tachometer that looks fantastic. It’ll pack 350 horsepower with a 3.7-liter V6 six-speed manual transmission. There are also plenty of performance enhancing options like an aerodynamic front fascia, rear spoiler and 19-inch wheels.

The 2013 Nissan Juke Nismo is the 370Z’s cuter cousin. It’s got a full body kit that gives it 37% greater downforce than the standard front and rear fascias, big 18″ wheels and a lowered suspension. There are also LED daytime running lights, contrasting side-view mirror covers and wider fender flares to complete the look.

When it comes to power, there’s a turbocharged direct-injection 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 197 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. This is nice increase from the 188 hp and 177 pound-feet of torque you’ll find in the stock version. You’ll also get your choice of either a six-speed manual transmission or CVT gearbox, and either all-wheel or front-wheel drive.

Nicole Wakelin fell in love with cars as a teenager when she got to go for a ride in a Ferrari. It was red and it was fast and that was all that mattered. Game over. She considers things a bit more carefully now, but still has a weakness for fast, beautiful cars. When not drooling over cars, Nicole writes for Wired’s GeekMom.
