The Nissan 370Z is powered by the 4th generation VQ V6 engine. With 3.7-litre displacement for massive muscle, this 245 kW dynamo features advanced Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL) technology that continually tunes valve lift and timing for quicker response and a broader torque curve, while optimising fuel efficiency and reducing emissions.
CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE VALVE TIMING CONTROL SYSTEM
The 370Z features Continuous Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS) with advanced Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL) technology that continuously tunes valve lift and timing for quicker response and a broader torque curve, while optimizing fuel efficiency and reducing emissions.
Nissan scrutinized every gram of the 370Z. Weight was reduced by changing the rear hatch and doors to ultra-strong lightweight aluminium. High-tech material include a carbon-fibre composite driveshaft that is not only incredibly strong, but also helps the engine rev more quickly, as well as a weight-saving carbon-fibre composite radiator support structure. More power. Less weight.
6-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION
For throwback thrills and endless smiles, this quick-shifting manual is just the ticket. Fitted with SynchroRev Match technology, it helps you shift like a pro for a smoother, controlled drive on your favourite twisty road or your daily commute.
SYNCHROREV MATCH TECHNOLOGY
A world’s first in any production car, SynchroRev Match monitors the 6-speed manual’s clutch, shift lever and vehicle speed. As you shift to a lower gear, the system “blips” the throttle to the ideal engine rpm for a supremely smooth downshift.
EVERYTHING GREAT ABOUT A MANUAL – EXCEPT THE CLUTCH PEDAL.
370Z's 7-speed automatic transmission gives you a wide spread of gearing and improved fuel efficiency. With a choice of driver-selectable modes, you can customise your driving experience like never before.
Put the 7-speed auto in “D” for effortless cruising, then pull the steering-column-mounted paddle shifters whenever quick gear changes are needed. Want more involvement? Manual mode gives you manual-style control through the shift lever or paddle shifters.
FRONT MIDSHIP PLATFORM
CONQUER EVERY CORNER
With the engine’s centre 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.
53/47 WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION
Some consider a static 50/50 balance to be the perfect weight distribution for handling. But Nissan engineers realised that a 53 front /47 rear static ratio is actually ideal. At the precise moment the driver accelerates out of a corner’s apex, the weight distribution shifts to the rear and becomes an approximate 50/50 balance. This translates into enhanced tyre contact for better acceleration, faster turns and a handling feel that’s uniquely Z.
BRAKING AND HANDLING
MAY THE G-FORCE BE WITH YOU
With an enthusiast’s wish list of high-performance componentry, 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.
19” Bridgestone tyres help keep you glued to the road while delivering new levels of roadholding grip.
19-INCH FORGED ALLOY WHEELS
RAYS forged alloy wheels are stronger and lighter than typical cast wheels. They help the engine rev quicker because they result in less rotating mass on the driveshaft.
355 MM FRONT BRAKE ROTORS
Balance doesn’t just apply to cornering. Bringing the powerful Nissan Z to a halt are its largest brakes ever: 355mm 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 tyres vertical to the ground for maximum contact—and maximum thrills through corners.
