New Nissan July launch

Time 12 years ago

sporty-new-nissan-in-dealers-for-julyNISSAN’S new 370Z 2-seater sports car is available to order in dealers now – with first deliveries in July.

The rear-drive 3.7-litre coupe now has a 331PS 3.7-litre V6, and is both shorter and lighter.

This should ensure the 370Z, which starts at £26,895, offers a thrilling drive – and allows Nissan dealers to fully capitalise on the huge interest generated by the mighty GT-R, too.


There are three trim levels: 370Z, GT Pack and GT Ultimate. All but the base cars get ‘Synchro Rev Control’. This matches the engine revs during changes of the manual 6-speed gearbox, for smoother and racier shifts.

It means drivers can imitate a racing driver. They can go one further with the optional 7-speed auto, too – this has steering wheel paddle shifts.

All cars get climate control, xenon lights, Bluetooth, 18-inch alloys and keyless go.

Dealers will also have an innovative upsell, in Nissan’s Scratch Shield Paint. For £450, this self-heals stone chips and light scratches!


Nissan has developed a micro-site for the new car, which include a ‘370Z Widget’. This automatically updates with news and developments prior to the July launch.

Customer feedback from dealers has seen Nissan designers answer a number of criticisms with the new 370Z, including:

•    Removing the rear strut brace
•    Developing a rear ‘shelf’ behind the front seats
•    Developing a retractable load cover
•    Adding a locking glovebox
•    Increasing instrument dial size
•    Introducing soft touch materials on the dashboard
•    Leather and suede trim for the door panels
