Nissan’s 6th generation Z car, the 370Z, has been launched today in the Indian market. The Nissan Z cars have quite a reputation amongst enthusiasts and tuners, for having incredible handling and power. Close to 1.5 million Z cars have been sold to date.
The latest iteration of the Z car, the 370Z, is a focused sports car that features a 3.7 litre V6 powerhouse, pumping out 330 bhp. Nissan says it will be their halo car for India, helping build Nissan’s brand image in India. A 6-speed manual and a 7-speed automatic will be offer while the very best of technology such as bi-xenon headlamps, active headrests, SynchroRev Match transmission that automatically blips to the ideal RPM when downshifting and a near perfect 50:50 weight distribution make this quite the driver’s car.
A front-mid engined sports car with rear wheel drive sounds like the perfect recipe for this summer, no? Prices stand at Rs. 53.5 lakh for the manual and Rs.54.5 lakh for the auto, (both, ex-showroom, Delhi).
