Gotcha! Nissan 370Z

2008-10-10 07:38

The first spy images of the Nissan's next Z car, the 370Z, have emerged.

Shorter and wider than the 350Z it replaces, the new car will look a lot more aggressive.

Its interior will apparently also be much improved to allow it a fair fight with the more upmarket competitors against which it will be pitted.

The marketing head for Nissan Japan recently told Autonews that the new Z will be a "true sports car" in the Porsche mould and will display a greater focus on performance.

The car will ostensibly get a version of Nissan's 3.7-litre V6 (hence the 370Z nomenclature) seen in its European Infiniti range, with sources estimating a substantial power increase over the current six-cylinder.

The all-new sports coupe is expected to make its debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show in November.

As with the 350Z, a convertible version will not be too far off.
