NIssan NIsmo 2024 (autoweek.com)

Nissan’s 2024 Z Nismo is designed to take the latest Z to new performance heights.

Under its hood, a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine generates an impressive 420 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque, channeled to the rear wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Nismo variant also boasts a revised suspension, wider rear wheels, and various Nismo exterior enhancements that signal its high-performance pedigree.

For enthusiasts who are eager to join the Nissan Z family but prefer not to break the bank, there are options below the Nismo trim. However, the entire Z lineup for 2024 is witnessing a price increase.

The base-model Nissan Z Sport will see a $1,220 price hike compared to the 2023 model, bringing the starting price to $43,305. This price adjustment applies to both automatic and manual-equipped Nissan Z Sport models and also extends to the Z Performance models, which feature a limited-slip differential.

The 2024 Nissan Z Nismo enters a competitive arena, facing off against rivals like the Ford Mustang Dark Horse, Toyota GR Supra, and BMW M2, among others. Despite the premium price, the Nismo variant offers enthusiasts an opportunity to experience the pinnacle of Nissan’s latest Z model while keeping the Nismo brand’s legacy alive and adding an extra layer of excitement to the road.

It’s evident that Nissan is committed to delivering high-performance options for its enthusiasts, even if it comes with a premium price tag. The 2024 Nissan Z Nismo represents the brand’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of performance and delivering a thrilling driving experience for sports car enthusiasts.
