NISMO Z – Nissan’s iconic coupe engineered to the max

April 3 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm GMT-0700

**NISSAN Z TECH TALK**
This is an informal gathering with Greg Nelson (Nissan Motorsports Manager) and a couple of Nissan/NISMO engineers from Japan for an hands-on introduction to the NISMO Z, Nissan’s iconic coupe engineered to the max.

Nissan Motorsports will be coming to Northern California for the Pirelli GT4 America season opener on April 5-7 at Sonoma Raceway. Before they hit the track, they will be hosting an informal tech talk for SAE MidCal at the Z Car Garage in San Jose.

The new halo in Nissan’s multi-decade legacy of sports car performance and excitement, is the limited-availability 2024 Z NISMO. Comprehensive revisions to Z NISMO elevate Nissan’s iconic coupe with more exhilarating driving dynamics, increased performance and capability, eye-catching design enhancements and an even more driver-focused cabin. The new bodywork, including a taller three-piece rear spoiler, helps Z NISMO produce positive downforce to improve aerodynamic performance.

Targeted revisions to the car’s twin-turbo engine boost power outputs to 420 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque, increases of 20 hp and 34 lb-ft compared to other Z grades. Unique stabilizer bars, a stiffer spring rate and larger, retuned dampers work with wider rear wheels and Dunlop® SP SPORT MAXX GT600 tires, a version of which are also used on GT-R, to raise Z NISMO’s handling limits.

The 2024 Nissan Z range continues to offer iconic style and thrilling performance from an accessible starting price. Z Sport and Performance deliver 400 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, with a choice between a six-speed, close-ratio manual transmission with Exedy® high-performance clutch and a responsive nine-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.
