Nissan has announced the pricing and specification details for its new 370Z sports car, the all-new replacement for the 350Z.
Prices start at £26,895 for the entry-level 370Z. This includes ‘intelligent’ key, climate control, 18-inch alloys, automatic xenon lights, Bluetooth hands-free phone connection, and an MP3 input for the stereo.
Upgrade to the ‘GT Pack’, priced £30,195, and you get bigger 19-inch alloys, heated seats finished in suede and leather, Bose stereo with six-CD changer, cruise control, and speed limiter.
Syncro Rev Control
This grade also adds something called ‘Syncro Rev Control’. When engaged this automatically matches revs during gear changes, enabling faster and smoother shifts. It’s a world first on a manual gearbox.
Finally, ‘GT Ultimate’ costs £31,895. This includes ‘Persimmon’ suede leather and a sat nav package with full European coverage. This has a voice control function that can also be used with the stereo.
The only options are an automatic gearbox for £1,400 and metallic paint at £450.
The auto is a fast-shifting seven-speed unit that replaces the standard six-speed manual, while the optional colour finishes are created with Nissan’s ‘Scratch Shield Paint’. This can repair itself after gentle scratches and light stone chips – we’ve seen it demonstrated, it really works – helping preserve the look of the car.
Compared to the 350Z it replaces, the 370Z has a larger, more powerful 3.7-litre engine, producing 326bhp. The 370Z is also smaller and 32kg lighter, making for even more invigorating rear-wheel-drive performance.
The Nissan 370Z is available to order online from Monday 2 February, with first deliveries taking place in July.
