    "The Fairlady Z Type 380RS-Competition gets its new numerical nomenclature from increasing the displacement of the stock 3.5-liter V6 to 3.8-liters, boosting power to 350 HP and 293 lb.-ft. of torque. The increased oomph will likely be sent through a six-speed manual gearbox, with what we'd assume is a beefed up clutch to handle the extra horses.

    On the sticky side of things, the 380RS gets upgraded shocks, springs and sway bars, along with Bridgestone Potenza RE01R tires, sized 245/40R18 up front and 275/35R19 in the back. In order to halt forward progress NISMO has fitted Brembo discs at all four corners, with high-friction pads.

    Not to leave the package incomplete, the exterior gets a series of aerodynamic mods, and on the inside, Alcantara- and leather-trimmed seats encompass the driver, while the shift knob, hand brake lever and steering wheel have all been covered in perforated leather. Drivers are also reminded of the special nature of the 380RS when they peer beyond the wheel and are greeted with a bespoke gauge cluster.

    The Nismo 380RS comes in at $44,000. Hopefully Nismo can see it in their hearts to bring this car over here for the 350Zs final year..."

    In Japan Nismo has a track only 380RS-C that makes 400HP. 105.2HP per liter....pretty impressive.

    So the GT-R has to be putting out some serious power if it's using a similar engine with two turbos on it. :x:

    So the US Nismo 350Z only gets the looks but not the engine? Lame.
