As we previously reported, Nissan will be bringing a facelift version of their 370Z sports car to the 2012 Chicago Auto Show and since the show is only a few hours away, the first details of the vehicle have been released. The new 370Z will be offered in Coupe, Roadster, and NISMO Z configurations and will go on sale in June 2012.
Updates for the refreshed 370Z include a revised front fascia with vertical LED daytime running lights, the addition of a red reflector to the rear fascia, revised 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, and a new set of 18" wheels for the Coupe version. The models equipped with the Sport Package will receive red-finished brake calipers and Euro-tuned shock absorbers. Nissan will also offer two new exterior colors – Magma Red and Midnight Blue - and will combine them with a dark-finish fuel gauge trim.
The list of standard equipment will include a new Bose Premium Audio Package with two additional speakers and two subwoofers, premium gun metallic dark-finish 19-inch wheels, and Nissan GT-R style high-rigidity brake hoses and performance brake fluid.
Under the hood, Nissan has kept the usual 332 HP 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine and the choice of either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed automatic transmission.
More details will be revealed tomorrow when the 2013 Nissan 370Z makes its debut in Chicago, so stay tuned!
