Sounds like it’s just about what could realistically be expected for this trim, nothing too surprising here. The real clincher will be the on-track performance reviews, as the standard Z gets a pass for the lackluster numbers since its primarily street-focused, but the NISMO obviously has track expectations to live up to.

Nevertheless, I’m pretty excited for it to drop 😁, though seems like I may be in the minority there lol

Jury’s still out tho until official pricing is released, as this could be pretty attractive at ~$60k...not so much if pushing $70k. Hopefully they add a 6MT variant in a future model year too

I wonder why the decision not to go with 6 piston calipers?

Also the lack of NISMO exhaust tips confuses me a little.

Haven't seen the engine bay but I'm guess the production version didn't get a red NISMO engine cover?
This confuses me too because it’s obvious the front calipers are a new design (don’t think those Akebonos are featured on anything else) and they fitted larger rotors, but why not make 6-pots? They look huge as is, surely it couldn’t have been that much extra to throw 2 extra pistons in.. 😑

Woulda been nice to see those bits from the catalog added too; that’d prob be first two mods, CF engine cover and NISMO track exhaust.
