Cobra N+ develops factory-backed parts for Nissanís 370Z
Nissanís new 370Z is shaping up to the be the next big tuner special, with one of the first aftermarket firms, Cobra N+, revealing its new kit for the stylish coupe today. With a punchy 3.7-liter V6 up front, a quick-shifting 6-speed with Nissanís innovative Synchromesh feature and a taught RWD chassis, the 370Z coupe is an ideal platform for tuning firms and Cobra N+ís new kit shows just the beginning of some very exciting mods for the car.
The company has put together all of its parts for the new coupe to form the 370Z Sport Concept, and although no major modifications were made to the engine, Cobra N+ says its aerodynamic and handling enhancements make all the difference.
To reduce unsprung weight, engineers have developed lightweight wheels measuring 19in and shod with Pirelli rubber. The wheels are linked to stiffer-than-stock springs which lower the ride of the 370Z by 30 mm. An additional coilover suspension kit varies the ride height between 20 and 40mm on front and rear axle.
Other parts include a new carbon-fiber front bumper insert, a new rear diffuser insert surrounding the exhaust pipes, and a high-flow muffler. For the interior, customers will be able to order special carbon-fiber-look scuff plates.
The new performance parts will be offered through Nissan dealers in Japan only for now, and pricing is yet to be revealed.
