Fresh from testing nine of the world’s finest sports car, Carlos Lago gets right back to business by, well, testing yet another sports car. This one is not a very fine sports car though. The Nissan 370Z is a peculiar thing. It has a very compelling recipe, but to drive it’s not as satisfying as you’d hope looking at it on a piece of paper.
These days with cars like the Genesis Coupe or Toyota GT86 around, you should really think twice about getting one of these. Still, let’s see if Carlos can find a redeeming feature in this Japanese fish:
The 370Z comes with with a standard 332-horsepower 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine and choice of 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed automatic transmission. The 2013 370Z Roadster and 370Z Roadster Touring will be offered with the same engine but with the 6-speed manual offered only with the Touring model (the 7-speed automatic transmission is available with both).
