The snow has melted in most parts of the world, so customers are gearing up for what will be a hot Spring and an even hotter Summer. And if you just so happen to be an owner of a 2008-2010 Nissan 370Z Roadster, then you’ll want to pay attention. Schmidt Revolution has prepared a tuning package for the roadster that offers a new set of wheels, a new coilover suspension and a stainless steel exhaust system to get the car ready for those long, top down rides.
Starting from the bottom up, Schmidt Revolution will have two sets of wheels for customers to choose from. Variant 1 includes a new set of three-part C-Line wheels, size 9.5x20-inch front and 12x20-inch rear, with 245/30-20 and 305/25-20 Hankook tires for a price of $7,200. The next version, Variant 2, will include wheels, size 21", with 245/30-21 and 295/25-21 tires. This set goes for $8,600. Both sets come with Radinox-coated rims that are washable and suitable for everyday use.
Further customization for the Nissan 370Z Roadster comes from a new H&R coilover system that allows the 370Z to hug the ground a little tighter and a new stainless steel exhaust system along with dampers for a more appropriate engine sound. The coilover system can be had for $1,600, while the exhaust system pushes the envelope further at $6,500.
No changes were made to boost performance for the 370Z Roadster, so the customer will have to make due with the 3.7 Liter DOHC V6 engine already situated under its hood. This engine will produce 332 HP, up 26 HP from the old VQ35 engine thanks to the new Variable Valve Event and Lift control (VVEL) which manipulate the motor’s breathing too ensure optimum respiration and allow for the car’s redline to be raised by 1000 revs all the way up to 7500 RPM. The engine is mated to either a seven speed automatic with Downshift Rev Matching or a close ratio six speed manual with throttle blipping SynchroRev Match.
