Nissan’s ‘Z-car’ has been a dominant force in sports coupes for more than four decades. The latest Nissan 370Z coupe traces its roots to the legendary 240Z that took the world by storm with its exceptional looks and powerful performance.
Fast forward to today, and you’ll find that the basic formula defining the ‘Z’ has stayed the same – now with a remarkable 328PS 3.7L V6 engine and a host of technological advances. The short wheelbase for a quick response, the wide track for stability, the low centre of gravity to connect you to the road. The Z has an intrinsic beauty that’s born of function, then shaped with passion.
The 370Z is powered by the 4th-generation VQ V6 engine. With 3.7 litre displacement for massive muscle, this 328 PS dynamo features advanced Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL) technology that continuously tunes valve lift and timing for quicker response and a broader torque curve, while optimising fuel efficiency and reducing emissions. Sounds impressive? Check it out. The exhilaration from idle to the 7,500-rpm redline – on the straights or through the corners – is pure magic.
Normally aspirated for instant punch, the 370Z coupe offers unbeatable performance for the money, with deep reserves of low-down power and, on the track, non-stop exhilaration right up to the 7500rpm redline. Use of strong yet lightweight aluminium suspension components reduces unsprung weight and makes the handling of the Nissan 370Z more responsive.
