The 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept, a one-off design study created to gauge market interest in an ultimate factory Z Roadster, was unveiled today at the Chicago Auto Show.

Designed to provide the best of two worlds - the open-air driving of a standard 370Z Roadster and the performance of a 370Z NISMO Coupe - it features unique engine, suspension, exterior and interior features versus standard Nissan 370Z Roadster models, including the familiar 350-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 and NISMO-tuned suspension.

The 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept utilizes Nissan's 7-speed automatic transmission with Downshift Rev Matching.

"The majority of 370Z Roadster buyers prefer the automatic transmission, which with Downshift Rev Matching and paddle shifters comes close to the performance of a 6-speed manual - so that's how we specified the 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept," said Pierre Loing, vice president at Nissan. "Matched with the NISMO-tuned engine, suspension and steering, it is a great combination, perfect for long open-top drives along the shoreline or mountain roads alike."

Nissan GT-R-Inspired Body

The Nissan 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept's visual presence starts with the addition of its GT-R-inspired functional and fully integrated aerodynamic body pieces. In front, the deep front fascia with Hyper LED Daytime Running Lights, black headlight bezels, NISMO emblem and signature NISMO red stripe accents set the tone.

The rear is highlighted by a custom carbon-fiber rear spoiler.

The convertible top itself, though it is expected to be rare that it is in the closed position, is a cloth power-folding roof with fabric inner liner design. It includes a single action top operation with automatic roof lock, steel tonneau cover and fixed glass wind deflector - just like every 2015 Nissan 370Z Roadster.

Cockpit: Recaro Seats, 3-Spoke Steering Wheel, NISMO Tachometer

The interior is anchored by black Recaro leather-appointed seats with red stitching and Ultrasuede inserts. It features custom red stitching with NISMO logo, an Alcantara-appointed leather-wrapped 3-spoke steering wheel and NISMO red tachometer.

The 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept's suite of technology includes Nissan Navigation System with 7.0-inch VGA touch-sensitive display, RearView Monitor and Bose Premium Audio System with six speakers and dual subwoofers to provide a clear soundtrack, even with the top down.

370Z NISMO Roadster's Aggressive Stance

The exterior appearance is topped by the wide 19-inch NISMO super-lightweight forged aluminum-alloy wheels by RAYS (19x9.5-inch front, 19x10.5-inch rear), which receive a special custom finishing. Y-rated Bridgestone Potenza S001 245/40 R19 front and 285/35 R19 rear tires complete the package.
