    Nissan 370Z launched in India


    Nissan has finally brought its 370Z to India priced at Rs 53.5 lakh for the manual and Rs 54.5 lakh for the automatic, ex-showroom, Delhi.
    The Z certainly looks the part with its aggressive boomerang lights, low stance and sharp detailing. The latest Z offering will be powered by a 3.7-litre V6 petrol engine that produces 332bhp and 37.32kgm of torque, and promises to be an absolute riot to drive.
    The motor is silky smooth, and rev happy and gives the car a power to weight ratio of 200bhp per tonne. The engine comes equipped with Nissan’s VVEL technology, or Variable Valve Event and Lift, which means power delivery is far smoother along with improved efficiency. As a result, the 370Z not only feels at home on the race track but also on our congested city streets.
    There is an option of a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed automatic transmission with paddle shift. The manual comes with what Nissan calls ‘Synchrorev’ that blips the throttle automatically as you downshift through the gears.
    The launch could be related to a stunt from a Hollywood flick. The 370Z was driven down a moving truck which had a mechanical ramp while the media followed in two double-decker busses on the airstrip. Followed which Narain Karthikeyan pulled some doughnuts to show the capabilities of the 370Z.

    Yes, but only if there are significant changes



    No, it's confusing and dilutes the brand name



    No difference, the product speaks for itself
