The Top Gear car review:Nissan 370Z
For:Old-school charm, new-school power, all-round entertainment
Against:A bit pricey to run, engine is rather drony
What is it?
It is a handsome, brutish and striking front-engined rear-wheel-drive sports coupe hewn from the rock of old school. The 370Z is bigger and tauter than its 350Z predecessor and has refined that car’s wayward raucousness by adding a touch of refinement.
But it’s still a 3.7-litre V6 with 326bhp, a roaring soundtrack and a tail-happy chassis. Even better is a huge price cut that makes it even more of a bargain. Admit it, at £27,860, you’re sorely tempted. As for the far more expensive Nismo - its appeal is a bit less clear cut.
