Get your engines running, Nissan is releasing the new 2016 fleet of Zs and now we know just how much you’ll put down for one of them. Nissan’s just released the pricing for the now on sale 2016 models of the 370Z Coupe, 370Z NISMO Coupe, and the 370Z Roadster.
The good news is that Nissan is keeping the prices the same from last year. So the MSRP for the Coupe is starting at $20,990, the Touring edition is starting at $37, 970, and the Roadster is starting at $41,820. Nissan’s listed the MSRP for its NISMO Coupe starting at $41,990.
The Z represents Nissan’s finest in performance and tuning with Nissan calling it, “One of the most iconic sports cars in automotive history.” In our recent interview with Nissan Product Specialist Ken Paul at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show he concurred that the Z, “has a long history. Started back in 1970 and at two different times in its life it has been the bestselling sports car in the U.S.”
This iconic 2016 370Z Coupe is coming standard with 332 horses and a matching 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control. Drivers have the choice between a 6-speed manual transmission with the additional option of synchronized downshift rev and a 7-speed automatic with paddle shifters.
There is also the drop-top Roadster version of the Coupe. New for 2016 both the Coupe and the Roadster are now coming in a new color that Nissan is calling, “Deep Blue Pearl.”
These are both fantastic Zs, but for the real performance junkie there is another option; the NISMO 370Z Coupe.
According to Paul, the NISMO lineup is, “our in house performing and tuning division.” The NISMO coupe fits into the exceptional NISMO lineup by starting where the non-NISMO 370Z Coupe leaves off. It bumps up the horsepower up to 350 with a NISMO version exclusive H-configuration exhaust, muffler tuning, and optimization of ECM, or Engine Control Module, calibration. The standard torque on this baby is a sweet 276 pounds per foot.
As a NISMO this Coupe has the special NISMO red and black leather seats and special red accents on the exterior. It also is coming with a new Bose audio system that includes Active Noise Cancellation technology – yes, like those headphones everyone wears on airplanes – and something else called Active Sound Enhancement that acts to enhance the natural purr of this kitten which enhances the thrill of acceleration.
Stay tuned for the potential release of the Roadster version of the NISMO Coupe Concept that we saw in Chicago.
