Default 2013 Nissan 370Z Updates - Just facts, no BS.

I'll try to keep this post updated as facts come in.

The updates for the new model year include:

a slightly changed front end that includes LED running lights, a slightly changed rear end, and some new wheel options.
No performance or engine changes in this 2013 refresh.

• Refreshed front fascia with vertical LED daytime running lights
• Red reflector added to rear fascia (replaces previous black center cover)
• Revised 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels (Sport Package equipped models)
• New 18-inch wheels for 370Z Coupe
• Red-finished brake calipers (Sport Package equipped models)
• Dark-finish fuel gauge trim
• Euro-tuned shock absorbers (Sport Package equipped models) - Probably the same as the Euro GT version. Forum user 'bvl' says, "Traditionally, european cars with sport suspensions are a bit firmer then US sport suspensions."
• And two new exterior colors – Magma Red and Midnight Blue
• It is pure sex.
• It is hot.
• It is loud.
• It is rough.

The NISMO 370Z
• brake ducts (?)
• new Bose Premium Audio Package with two additional speakers and two subwoofers,
• premium gun metallic dark-finish 19-inch wheels,
• and Nissan GT-R style high-rigidity brake hoses and performance brake fluid.
• does not adopt the new front fascia/rear reflector, Euro-tuned shocks or Midnight Blue exterior color.
• red calipers

Same engine/trans specs as other years:
As in 2012, the 2013 370Z Coupe and 370Z Coupe Touring will each be available with a standard 332-horsepower 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine and choice of 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed automatic transmission. The 2013 370Z Roadster and 370Z Roadster Touring will be offered with the same engine but with the 6-speed manual offered only with the Touring model (the 7-speed automatic transmission is available with both).

The Nissan NISMO 370Z, will once again cap off the lineup – offering racing-inspired exterior and interior styling, a specially tuned suspension and unique super-lightweight forged alloy wheels. Its 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine is matched with an exclusive H-configured exhaust system design, muffler tuning and optimized ECM (Engine Computer Module) control – creating 350 horsepower and 276 lb-ft of torque. Only one transmission is available, a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission with standard SynchroRev Match, which allows rev-matched heel-toe-like downshifting.

Additional details on the 2013 Nissan 370Z will be available closer to the June on-sale date.

Well done and thanks for posting. The front is growing on me even more. The smooth no fang look is very nice.

I like the unbroken look in that area and the lights are a nice touch. That is the color I will order. I cant wait until they are avail!

I do like my 2010 and this is even better.

the 2013 370z isn't the first nissan to feature midnight blue. it's a color code they have used in the past.

I know this is a fact(s) thread. Just did a quick PS of the possible blue and it looks sharp. I think those that miss the "Fangs" (including myself) I added them back (painted them from black to the car color) I have to say that I think this car looks sharper with the fangs + the led lights, although I do miss the original sport wheels. What do you think?

this kit looks very similar to the 2013 redesign, albeit a more agressive (and ugly) front end
