The all-new Nissan 370Z will be unveiled at the upcoming LA Auto Show, and new details have emerged ahead of its official debut.
Nissan has done a good job of keeping this car under wraps for as long as it has. Although official images were released a few weeks ago, technical details have been largely speculative. Until now.
We've known for some time that the new Z-car, as the 370Z nomenclature implies, will be fitted with a 3.7-litre V6.
However, Nissan has revealed via the LA Auto Show's official website that the new six-cylinder with double overhead camshafts and "variable valve event and lift control" has an output of 248 kW.
Fans can also expect to see a new seven-speed automatic transmission, while the six-speed manual gets, what Nissan claims, is the first synchronised downshift rev-matching system.
Furthermore, it has been made known that practically every component has been "rethought or redesigned" for use in the 370Z.
The new car has a shorter wheelbase than its predecessor and Nissan has made use of lightweight materials to trim the kilos and up the power-to-weight ratio. 370Z's more rigid body structure also promises to make it a treat with enthusiasts.
