Nissan is keeping to its tradition of building sharp handling and enjoyable to drive sports car with the 370Z. It takes over from the 350Z but despite being more refined and comfortable inside, is every bit as involving and characterful as its predecessor.

Nissan is keeping to its tradition of building sharp handling and enjoyable to drive sports car with the 370Z. It takes over from the 350Z but despite being more refined and comfortable inside, is every bit as involving and characterful as its predecessor. With a rumbling V6 engine, heavy manual gearchange and low-slung driving position it's very much in the mould of an old-fashioned two-seater performance coupe. But it's also incredibly sophisticated with a top quality cabin and advanced safety systems. There's even a Synchro Rev Control system that keeps the engine revs at their optimum between gear shifts, adding to the sports feel. In terms of performance it competes with top end models like the Porsche Cayman, but it represents far better value for money and comes very well equipped too.

What owners say...

 Its a pure 2 seater it isn't practical except for getting where you need to go quicker than you'd expect for little effort.

 It's not really a practical car being a 2 seater sports car, but it is just a joy to drive every day.
