I am calling it 310HP and not 300 HP as the article claims, because in Europe the Z is rated at 276HP. It makes 287HP here. I am not sure if the difference is due to the different unit measure of HP used there as opposed to here, but it could also be other things. In any case, there will be a more powerfull version there, I would not be surprised to see it here soon:

If you're worried the Nissan 350Z might not be quick enough for you, don't fret - a 300bhp tuning pack is to be offered when the car goes on sale in October.

The kit has been produced by the Japanese maker's motorsport division, NisMo, and will be the first in a series of uprated mainstream Nissan models which are bound for UK showrooms.

The 350Z's performance pack - due to be announced at the Goodwood Festival of Speed next weekend - is to be offered through dealers as an option. It includes a stainless steel exhaust, reprogrammed engine management system and a new air filter to boost power from 276bhp to 300bhp.
Torque will increase from 363Nm to 380Nm.

While the upgrade's cost has yet to be finalised, it's expected to be about £1,000. Another £1,500 will buy a styling pack called the NisMo Aero Kit. This includes side skirts, a race-style rear spoiler and special lightweight wheels.

NisMo add-ons are also set to filter down through the rest of the Nissan range, and an insider has hinted that the Micra is next in line for the tweaks. "We're aware the Micra has a somewhat feminine image, so a performance model is the way to appeal to a male audience," said our source. "Just look at Renault's Clio - it used to be Nicole's car, but the 172 and V6 have made it desirable to young men." The NisMo-tuned Micra will use an uprated version of the 1.4-litre engine and feature suspension and styling modifications. Tom Barnard

Sounds like a trim line of modifications. If that's the case, I'd assume the parts would be available elsewhere and could be done to current Z's (and G's?)

Keep in mind that if its an ecu upgrade it might not work here due to difference in gas. Europe gets higher octane.

It is just a 350Z with some Nismo Parts (Nismo Weldina Exhaust, Nismo Air Filter, and Engine Management System that will probably just add gas).

It is a very nice marketing tool and should be a good way for Nissan to lure poor unsespecting SOBs into buying a Special Edition car. The ~$3,000 that you spend on the package could be much better spent on aftermarket parts for a stock Z though.

Good find![thmsup]
