LAS 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.

NISMO Altima
The NISMO Altima receives a cat-back exhaust system, R-tune stage cold air intake, custom 18-inch wheels and tires, front strut, shocks and springs, front breaks, rear spoiler, graphics kit and shift knob.

The Volcanic Orange Sentra SE-R Spec V is the ultimate for the small sedan enthusiast. The already impressive QR25 engine performance has been improved with a variety of NISMO R-tune components including NISMO R-tune camshafts, NISMO R-tune cold 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 race levels with NISMO R-tune semi-metallic front brake pads. The R-tune Sentra SE-R Spec V also features a NISMO graphics kit and 5-spoke bronze 17x7.5 inch NISMO lightweight alloy wheels.
