What is Nissan doing to draw attention to the new 370Z NISMO?
The team will get to drive the 370Z NISMO performance car in a seven-day, 3,000 mile event route that goes through 13 countries across Europe as they participate in the 2013 Gumball 3000 Rally. The event is a non-competitive, pan-European parade of the world's most exciting and desirable cars. The team will start in Copenhagen on May 18, 2013 as they get behind the wheel of the new 2014 Nissan 370Z NISMO. What better way to get the newest NISMO in front of millions of people?
A brilliant way to showcase the new 2014 370Z NISMO
Millions of European spectators are expected to line the route to get a first glimpse of the exciting new 370Z NISMO in action. The hottest Z performance car was first previewed in Barcelona in January, and the Nissan 370Z NISMO made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. So just how hot is this new 370Z NISMO and what sets it apart from the standard Z?
The new 370Z NISMO is powered by a modified 350-hp six-cylinder engine, and features a bespoke chassis tuned to deliver a sharper and even more engaging driving experience. The hottest Z in the world is capable of accelerating from 0-100kp/h in just 5.2 seconds, the new Z follows in the tracks of the first NISMO model to arrive in Europe, the Juke NISMO. And Nissan has just announced the the fastest-ever GT-R NISMO that will make its global debut next year in Tokyo.
The NISMO Brand is growing
Nissan's Motorsports brand, NISMO, is growing and changing beyond the racetrack. The performance car will be driven through Europe by Intersection Magazine contributors Patrice Meignan and Jeremy 'Jey' Taltaud. The Nissan 370Z NISMO features a special camouflage livery designed specifically for the event. The Gumball 3000 event is the perfect way to showcase the hot new 370Z NISMO.
Nissan announces a new innovative experimental race car
Gareth Dunsmore, Nissan in Europe General Manager says, "Gumball is a great fit for the 370Z NISMO: it's a road rally which allows thousands of fans to get up close to their dream cars.
