Nissan 370Z 2016 : Gran Turismo Back to Basics

Nissan had made little makeovers for its 370Z GT model.  46 years has passed but the model almost stayed the same, like an ancient city barely touched by modernity.  Perhaps the Japanese carmaker bears sentiment for this Gran Turismo speedster, but if we’re asked of our opinion, we must say that 370Z still has room for improvements.

Fascia and Interior

370Z looks bothcute and hot at the same time most especially in its red body paint.  The two door coupe is likely to draw admiring glimpses on the road—and it is a GT for crying out loud!  The base is made available in two trims: the coupe and the convertible.  Either way, you get a stylish class that may not be too masculine but gives the shivers to the spectators.


Inside the coupe, you may find the cabin a little too cramped due to the snub rear end.  Yet the seats are comfortable for sporty experience in leather upholstery, power accessories, the cruise control and the keyless entry.

What Delights the Driver

So the man behind the wheel manages to summon power of 332hp and torque of 270 lb.-ft.  Its ready-to-pounce look is equally engaged with the 0-60 mph sprint in just 5.1 seconds.  The 6-speed manual gearbox accommodates the driver’s prowess, making him in control.  To make it more accommodating for the driver’s lazy mood, it comes with SynchroRev automatic rev-matching. Certifiably, 370Z is one GT for drivers out there.


However, we must also point out the grainy quality produced by the V6 on higher revs and the noise isn’t something to be delighted upon, too.  If you want these negative points out, opt for the Touring, Sport, or Sport Tech variants.
