Default 370z Sport Package Weight??

Ok...so does anyone REALLY know how much the sport package adds to the weight of the 370Z? From Nissan's website I can see that the Touring model weighs in around 3278 lbs, which is about 40 lbs more than the base model (not too bad of an increase IMO). I have noticed that most of the magazines have weighed the car between 3320 ad 3350 for the Touring w/ sport package, but who knows how much gas they had in them or if the Navi adds extra weight too.

Also, on a side note, does anyone know if on the Touring model you can remove the spare tire/tools without affecting the subwoofer?

Yes, I know the subwoofer is on top, but I'm wondering if you can permanently remove the spare tire/tools and still have the subwoofer work and sound as normal.

I'm going to be ordering mine soon, and I'll probably just have to go down to a dealer to find this out (unless I can find a dealer that has White w/ Persimmon leather combo).

Or, since Nismo is moving away from marketing the light tune stuff and letting the parent company Nissan handle that, let your description be a true Nismo package!! Pretty hard core!!

Actually, the track model was heavier than the base model in 03-05. Track had the brembos and the vdc, lsd. Base models were always the lightest. But ur right..I wish there was a "track" model for the 370. Something like brembos, lightweight 18' rays, stickier rubber, more aggressive gearing, stiffer springs/roll bars, cf body parts, no ac/radio...

I have the official data from a Nissan FairladyZ brochure that I got in Japan:

Base = 1480 kg (3263 lb)
Base + Sport = 1500 kg (3307 lb)
Touring = 1510 kg (3329 lb)
Touring + Sport = 1520 kg (3351 lb)

Also, the JDM Sports Package does not include the rear wing and front spoiler (those are separate options), so the US Sport Package is a bit heavier yet.

I think the data on the nissanusa website is a little too optimistic, as the car mag test weights seem to match the Japanese weight data. OTOH, the Japanese brochure uses nice round numbers in kg, so I don't think it's 100% exact either.

Good info and they are correct. Here's JDM Z34 sports package weight from another thread

Quote:




Yes! They weighed a Nissan 370Z sports package with full tank of gas and it came out to be 1499 kg. I used the 1 kg = 2.2 lbs formula and get 3297.8 lbs. That's good enough for me. I give Nissan Thumbs up for keeping the car below 3300 even with a bigger displacement, new safety protocols, etc.

A gallon of gasoline weight about 6 lbs. The 370Z has a 19 gallon tank. Right there is a possible fudge factor of about 114 lbs between different measuring results.
