The 4th-generation VQ V6 gives 3.7 liters of massive muscle, pumping out 332 horsepower, 270 lb-ft of torque – and pure exhilaration to its 7,500-rpm redline.
CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE VALVE TIMING CONTROL SYSTEM (CVTCS)
CVTCS with advanced Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL®) technology continuously tunes valve lift and timing for quicker response and a broader torque curve, while optimizing fuel efficiency and reducing emissions.
High-tech, light weight materials abound, including a carbon-fiber composite driveshaft that’s incredibly strong, and helps the engine rev more quickly. A carbon-fiber composite radiator support structure also helps save weight.
A DRIVER'S Automatic Transmission
It might tempt you away from a stick
7-speed automatic transmission
This 7-speed automatic gives you a wide spread of gearing and improved fuel efficiency. Driver-selectable modes let you custom-tailor your driving experience.
In Manual mode, you've got manual-style control with a nudge of the shift lever or a pull of the lightweight magnesium paddle shifters. Drop a gear and Downshift Rev Matching blips the throttle, making you feel like a pro.
With the engine’s center of mass pushed back behind the front axle, and the front wheels moved closer to the corners, the Nissan 370Z is built for balance and handling.
55/45 WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION
Instead of the traditional 50/50 split, Nissan engineers determined that a 55 front/45 rear static ratio is ideal for the Z. At the precise moment the driver accelerates out of a corner’s apex, the weight distribution shifts rearward and becomes an approximate 50/50 balance, translating into enhanced tire contact for better acceleration, quicker turns, and a handling feel that’s uniquely Nissan Z.
BRAKING AND HANDLING THAT LEAVE AN IMPRESSION
MAY THE G-FORCE BE WITH YOU
With an enthusiast’s wish list of high-performance components, the Nissan 370Z turns braking and handling into pure performance art.
VEHICLE DYNAMIC CONTROL
A great sports car shouldn’t just exhilarate, it should also inspire confidence. Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) on the Nissan 370Z continuously monitors the speed of each wheel, steering angle, yaw, lateral g-forces, and even braking pressure.[] It compares the data to the steered vehicle path and, if it senses the onset of understeer or oversteer, brakes individual wheels and/or reduces engine power to help keep you on course.
Standard 18" Yokohama® ADVAN Sport® high-performance tires help keep you connected to your Z. Available 19" Bridgestone® Potenza® tires help enhance road-holding.[]
19" FORGED ALLOY WHEELS
Available RAYS® forged alloy wheels are stronger and lighter than typical cast wheels.[] Because they result in less rotating mass on the driveshaft, they help the engine rev quicker.
14" FRONT BRAKE ROTORS
Balance doesn’t just apply to cornering. Bringing the powerful Nissan Z to a halt are its largest brakes ever:
available 14" front rotors, with the gripping power of 4-piston front calipers.
DOUBLE-WISHBONE FRONT SUSPENSION
A lightweight double-wishbone front suspension coupled with a 4-link rear design helps keep the tires vertical to the ground for maximum contact – and maximum thrills through corners.
