The 2024 Nissan Z NISMO Is The Best Performing Z Yet
For visuals, there’s a black painted roof and black 19-inch lightweight RAYS wheels with stickier Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT600 tires lifted right from the GT-R. The Z NISMO also gets larger brakes with enhanced cooling for track duty; there are 15-inch rotors up front and 13.8-inch rotors in the rear.
None of this means anything without the aero goodies to go with it. Up front, the fascia has a styling element Nissan calls “Grand-Nose’’ or “G-Nose ‘’, a design that extends the front of the vehicle further forward than usual. If you want to see something similar, Nissan did the same thing on the 1971 240ZG (G stood for the aforementioned nose). The redesigned front fascia has a grille of mesh Nissan says is the thinnest they’ve ever put on a production car; this creates less drag and allows more engine cooling. There are canards at the front corners for even more aero performance.
