https://usa.nissannews.com/en-US/re...f-on-and-off-road-concepts-for-2022-sema-show

The Nissan Z has long inspired fans and owners to modify the legendary sports car to their own personal tastes, and for the 2022 SEMA Show, the NISMO team created a 2023 Nissan Z to showcase a new range of performance-oriented NISMO accessory parts, which will be available for purchase through Nissan dealerships starting in early 2023.

The Z's parts list begins with a NISMO coilover suspension kit with a twin-tube design featuring a linear race spring system, rebound damping adjustability and ride height adjustment. The suspension was developed with input from racing driver Bryan Heitkotter, who was crowned champion in the 2011 Nissan GT Academy competition and subsequently began a successful career racing for Nissan, and now Chris Forsberg Racing.

Additional suspension components include a NISMO adjustable stabilizer bar kit, prototype NISMO strut tower bar and NISMO suspension components including rear midlinks, rear lower camber links, rear traction arms, endlinks, front upper arms and front outer tie rod ends.

For increased stopping power, the car features a NISMO big brake kit that includes track-ready brake pads, larger vented front and rear rotors, 6-piston front/4-piston rear calipers and stainless-steel brake lines. Rolling stock is provided by new NISMO LM-RS1 wheels, 19 x 9.5 inches front and 19 x 10.5 inches rear. These wheels are lightweight, forged, and available in black, anthracite and bronze semi-gloss finishes to complement any vehicle color, and have been tested to rigorous NISMO standards. They are equipped with Bridgestone RE71RS tires, sized 255/40/19 front and 285/35/19 rear.

Enhancements to the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 includes a fully dyno-tested, CAD-designed NISMO cold air intake which uses a bell-mouth design to increase airflow. CARB approval is currently pending. For reduced charge air temperatures and to maintain performance on hot days and track events, a NISMO performance heat exchanger has been added – which features 148-percent greater volume than the factory piece.

A stainless steel NISMO track exhaust with a 2.25-inch outer pipe diameter reduces backpressure, while power is transmitted through a NISMO street twin-disc clutch and flywheel kit, designed to handle up to 800 horsepower and 750 lb-ft of torque while retaining a factory-like pedal feel and effort.

Visual enhancements on the car include NISMO carbon fiber exterior mirror covers, a NISMO fuel filler cover, NISMO kick plates, a NISMO GT titanium shift knob, a prototype NISMO carbon fiber steering wheel trim kit and, under the hood, a NISMO carbon fiber engine cover, NISMO coolant expansion tank a NISMO oil filler cap.

I like the options. Nismo version of car should be a cracker. Whilst the price may seem high whenever details are released, it's relatively inexpensive for the likely performance that will be had once everything is tuned. :)

So they are including coil overs on this or just make them available at obscene prices for add-on? Haha All these upgrades - won’t lie makes me excited to see what the new Nismo will look like and if it will have all these bits added etc.

Hmmm...take away the stickahs and it looks like any normal Performance trim level.

Nice to see they will have parts available, but want to see the production Nismo version that will come from the factory.

curious what the improvements in the numbers are over the stock performance trim.

also wondering how much the new suspension bits will improve this old chassis' performance on the track....

Pricing could make or break the value proposition of the Performance trim Z.

Those brakes are exceptional. The wheels look better than the performance trim wheels. I'd almost rather get a base and build it with these parts and have OEM+. Then I could slap whatever LSD I wanted into the rear and call it a day.

Lowered coilover stance looks just right…and that billet knob! Perf trim lines are perfect already, we don’t need garish body kits, subtle Nismo touches will do. Body kits should be an option if wanted.

I think a body kit & wing would be welcome as long as it provides functional, wind tunnel tested, aerodynamic benefits (so unlike most aftermarket kits for the 370Z 😆); Form follows function as they say.

The wheel & brake kit combo look 🔥, would be awesome if those made it into the production trim.

Though that brake kit looks similar to the previous kit NISMO started offering couple years ago; If so I think those are “just” a caliper upgrade using stock rotor sizes vs a true BBK with 380mm+ rotors. Bit disappointing as I’m sure with the added weight n power the new Z could use the extra thermal capacity.

Also can’t tell if they’re monoblocks or 2-piece calipers 🤔
