Displays An Array of Performance Vehicles at 2003 SEMA Show
VEGAS, NV – Nissan today announced an exciting lineup
to be displayed at the 2003 Specialty Equipment Market Association
(SEMA) Show, set for November 4-7 in Las Vegas. The list includes
a wide range of specially tuned Nissan vehicles, including a mix
of trucks (Titan, Pathfinder Armada and Xterra) and performance-oriented
vehicles (350Z, Altima, Maxima and SE-R Spec-V).
The centerpiece of the display at the Nissan booth (Booth #33933, South Hall,
Upper Level) will be a 350Z modified by NISMO, the premiere supplier of high-performance
aftermarket parts and accessories for Nissan vehicles in Japan. Also of special
interest will be two Titan pickup trucks and two Pathfinder Armada SUVs all modified
by aftermarket partners.
"The SEMA show creates an environment that can help bring our new products to
a new dimension and at the same time can help position our vehicles as products
ripe for aftermarket personalization," said Mark McNabb, vice president and general
manager, Nissan Division. “Our aftermarket potential is becoming more-and-more
exciting: last year we introduced the Z and this year brings the new Maxima and
our full-size offerings – Titan and Pathfinder Armada.”
The Daytona Blue NISMO R-tune 350Z represents the pinnacle of NISMO performance.
Powering the Z is a NISMO-enhanced Nissan VQ35 3.5-liter V6 producing approximately
320 horsepower. The engine was treated to NISMO R-tune billet camshafts, NISMO
R-tune cold-air intake, NISMO R-tune headers and the NISMO S-tune stainless steel
cat-back exhaust system. Backing the powerplant is a 6-speed manual featuring
a NISMO R-tune lightweight flywheel and a NISMO R-tune single disk clutch and
clutch cover, and NISMO shift knob, all for increased efficiency and shift feel.
A NISMO R-tune clutch-type adjustable limited-slip differential with four pinion
gears ensures reliable launches. Braking power is increased with NISMO R-tune
brake pads and steering power remains reliable thanks to an R-tune power steering
oil cooler kit. The R-tune Z achieves a track-ready look with an S-tune aero
kit with front and rear spoilers and side sills, 18x8.5-inch (front) and 18x9.5-inch
(rear) 5-spoke NISMO lightweight forged alloy wheels and a NISMO graphics kit.

custom 18-inch wheels and tires, front strut, shocks and springs, front breaks,
rear spoiler, graphics kit and shift knob.

air intake and an R-tune off-road (no catalytic converter) header and S-tune
stainless steel cat-back exhaust system. Handling is taken to a track-ready level
with a NISMO S-tune 23mm front sway bar, a heavy duty NISMO R-tune front strut
tower brace, a NISMO S-tune shock and spring kit, a NISMO R-tune adjustable 25mm
rear sway bar, and an R-tune 25mm front lower tie bar. Braking is brought to
