Default 2013 Nissan 370Z Revealed With New Look, Sort of: 2012 Chicago Auto Show

Nissan unveiled the refreshed 2013 370Z today at the Chicago Auto Show, though little is different over the 2012 model year.

The same 3.7L DOHC V6 making 337 hp sits under the hood, or 350 hp out of the NISMO tuned version. A new euro-tuned suspension is the only performance-minded change to the updated Z car the rest is cosmetic. The company actually revealed it yesterday, but this is the first time we've had a chance to get up close and personal.

Brand enthusiasts will appreciate the LED accents on the car's lights and the brake calipers which match the paint job. The car also gets new 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels on the Sport package models and 18-inch alloy wheels for the coupe. Those thinking of buying the car when it becomes available can look forward to two new exterior colors as well: magma red and midnight blue.

They got rid of the "teeth" in the front and now it's just a wide open mouth

The front looks like it is now a mix of the 370z and the 350z. I think I like the old 370z front better. It fit the rest of the body more than this one does.

I'd like to see color options for the brembos, not color matched. If I got a blue Z i'd want gold/yellow calipers. Black w/ red or yellow calipers etc.

It is a nice touch but if it is a dealer add on, with a cost to match, then make it more customizable. If it is free from the factory then I would not complain

Also, tune a little more HP and make it 340 even. Sounds better.

I never liked the rear diffuser on the 370z. Wish they had actually changed the rear bumper!

i liked the bronze brembos on my graphite g. just added a really nice touch and for some reason, that was the one thing everyone noticed on the car.
when i worked downtown, a (blonde) salesgirl came into my office and asked if it was my car that was parked on the street in front. i said yeah, and she told me that i had a boot on it. i was confused because they don't even give out tickets on that street so i go outside, and she points at the caliper...

This causes me to re-think it.
I thought the gold calipers looked strange on the graphite I own but everyone else uses red, black, or yellow. Maybe the gold is eccentric enough to look classy.

bachman, no i think when the car is clean and the calipers are clean, its a really sharp look. a lot of people have put bronze wheels on a gray/graphite car. the two colors can look great together.
