Nissan has just revealed the first information, along with pictures, of the face lifted 2013 370Z, ahead of its first public appearance at the Chicago Motor Show.
There’s a fair amount of styling differences with this new model, including a new front bumper, LED daytime running lights and a restyled rear fascia with a red reflectors. Buyers will have two new color choices as well, Magma Red and Midnight Blue, and will get updated 18-inch alloy wheels.
If you get one fitted with the Sport package you’ll find red brake calipers, euro-tuned shock absorbers and 19-inch alloys.
As for the engine, it remains unchanged in the regular model, which means a 3.7-litre V6 with 350 HP. This can be fitted to either a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic.
Nissan released details about the 2013 Nismo version as well, which eschews the styling changes but gets a high-performance braking system 19-inch alloys and an upgraded sound system.
Like the standard model, it has a 3.7-litre V6 engine but in Nismo form the engine gets an optimized ECU and a sports exhaust system, taking power up to 370HP.
The revised model should go on sale in America in June.
