2009 Nissan 370Z
The Nissan 370Z (known as the Fairlady Z in Japan) is a two-seat sports car manufactured by Nissan Motors. The 370Z is the sixth generation of Nissan's Z-car line, is internally known as the C53D. The coupe is set to enter production in early 2009 for the 2009 model year. It was announced on October 29, 2008 and will be unveiled at the 2008 Greater Los Angeles Auto Show.
The Nissan 370Z is a front engine rear-wheel-drive two door sports car. The vehicle features the long-hood short-deck design common to the Z-Car family. External design highlights include a sloping fastback style roof line, high waistline, and bulging fenders that are pushed out to the corners of the vehicle.
Interior cabin design is straight forward. The main gauge pod is mounted directly to the steering column allowing their movement to coincide with steering wheel adjustments. Additional gauges are mounted in a center triple gauge cluster. Unlike the 350Z, the 370Z does make use of a conventional glove box.
Changes from the 350Z include a straighter and sharper A-pillar (similar to the GT-R), new aggressive Maxima-inspired headlights, intelligent key system, more pronounced fender arches, new rocker panels and a new liftgate.
