The Z Series and GTR Lines have always been the baseline for Japanese Sports Cars. They are well loved in the racing and the drift community but that isn’t where they started life. Nissan then Datsun first introduce the Z Series in the form of the 240Z in 1969 which came to market in 1970 with Straight Six 2.0l Single Overhead Cam putting out about 151 HP in its day. Skipping into the mid 80’s Nissan then changed the engine configuration to a V6 engine, and later the 300 Z come out with a Twin Turbo System in the V6. Jumping ahead again to 2008 Nissan introduce their sixth generation in the form of the vehicle we are presenting to you, the little understated sports car the ‘NISSAN 370Z’
Let us start by saying that there are other sports coupes of the same class, like the BMW M4’s and the Mercedes Benz C63 Coupes but you will be had press to find one in the condition and this low mileage and the full spec sheet add to the car at this great price.
That said let’s chat about specs, this 370Z is the full package from the Bose Sound System, Bluetooth hands-free phone system, Heated Leather Seats, Sat Nav and even a reverse camera. Even though these are nice to have and the cabin of the car is luxurious, it’s about the sweet song of the 3.7liter V6 putting out 245kw and the way this machine puts the power to the ground. The 7-speed paddle shift is precise and responsive on the way up the gears and on the way down it automatic blips the throttle for you. The Engine is keen to rev and excite you as it squirms to release the power through the drive train, burning rubber and propelling you forward beyond legal speeds. Yes, this is a refined beast that will top out at 250km/p electronically, doing this all-in comfort of Leather and Alcantara.
This Nissan 370Z with its front mid-engine is a beast with the perfect balance of snarling power and sexy body lines.
You not going to buy this car to take to the golf course or drop your kids at school, no you are going to be happiest looking for winding mountain passes and track days where she the thrill you and show you want a great handling car can do. We think this Nissan 370Z in her Passion Red Dress is a piece of art as well as a great driver’s car.
If are you a driving type then this future classic is just up your street.
Interesting trade-in’s will be considered.
