Nissan 370Z retains the sleek profile that has defined Zs of the past. Moreso, it has been characterized by its low roofline, upswept quarter-window design and slope of the rear hatch.

In addition, the headlights have a High-intensity bifunctional discharge and LED daytime running lamps.  The rear lights are boldly sculptured which announces the car’s presences. The boomerang headlights increase the aggressive look of the car.

Cabin

The driver’s cockpit is designed to make the driver to easily connect with the car. The cabin is framed by a deeply angled instrument panel. There is a full-length centre console which separates the driver’s seat from the passenger seat.

The seats are made of leather and have an adjustable headrest. They also have unique stitching and graphics. Furthermore, the 50th Anniversary logo is embossed into the backrests.

The information layout is well attached on a 7.0-inch screen which not only provides good visibility but also easy access to all key data. Furthermore, this ensures that the driver doesn’t have to choose between a preferred steering wheel position and gauge visibility.

Besides that, the large upper steering wheel opening in front of the gauges is designed to provide a good view of the readouts. The special 50th Anniversary logo on the tachometer celebrates Z performance. 

Performance

Nissan 370Z will be powered by a  3.7l V-6 engine that produces 332 horsepower.  This makes it faster than other four-cylinder engine cars such as Mazda MX-5Miata and the Subaru BRZ.

The innovative VVEL technology optimizes valve open/close movements, allowing air to be sent promptly to the combustion chamber at a precise time. Not only does this promote fuel efficiency but fewer emissions also.

This engine is mated to a close-ratio with a standard  6-speed manual transmission or an optional 7-speed automatic transmission.  It can easily clock 60mph within 5.0 seconds. This is what makes it a track star.

The 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition features a fine-tuned double-wishbone front suspension that uses lightweight forged aluminium arms, a lightweight rigid aluminium-alloy cradle and a hollow construction stabilizer bar.

The rear cradle is integrated into a single part without welding. Each corner has high-response shock absorbers to enhance a comfortable ride. A Viscous Limited Slip Differential makes sure the power gets to the ground.

Verdict

The 370Z is a true icon for Nissan. Secondly, the car has defined its segment for the past half-century. The 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition celebrates the history of the model and its racing heritage. The Zs have played a vital role in helping make Nissan what it is today.
