Offered in both coupe and roadster forms, Nissan’s stunning new sports vehicle is proof how the company has rediscovered its heritage; its lineage could be traced right back towards the wonderful 240Z of 1969.
Things have, obviously, moved on. The 350Z, using its sophisticated V6 proving capable very rapid acceleration because of its power output of just about 300PS.
Fortunately for purists the ability is delivered with the rear wheels; the very best is gained in the package once the six speed manual gearbox is within place, but even if the automatic 5 speed can be used the car continues to be satisfyingly quick.
Handling is wonderful – as sharp like a newly-stropped Swiss Army knife – and also the car looks the part too. What more can a red-blooded driver request?
