Thumbs up Nissan 370Z launch expected in 2010 as CBU.

Hey, just read the article on Autocar, Nissan 370z could be brought to India by Nissan. Now if they could bring it down at the price they have mentioned it would surely be worth having this awesome car. In US the base price of it is around $30,000 so i guess after paying all the duty as its gonna be a CBU could be around 32L. It comes with 3.7L V6 engine, putting out very healthy 332bhp @ 70000rpm, 375NM of torque @ 5200rpm. Suppose to be a highly competent sports coupe. Am gonna start saving soon.

Also, not to forget the amount of performance upgrade available for it, turbochargers and superchargers, making it go beyond 400hp+

Here are some great reviews on it

2009 Nissan 370Z - Official Photos and Info - Car News/Latest News & Reviews/Car Shopping/Hot Lists/Reviews/Car and Driver - Car And Driver

2009 Nissan 370Z - 2008 LA Auto Show Coverage, New Car Reviews, Concept Cars - Automobile Magazine

Also, some great comparison videos on youtube. Truly impressing.

Now, lets just see if the are able to price it below 35L, anything crossing 40L they gonna have a tough luck.

I would love to own a vehicle that can rev up to 70000 rpm. It would sound better than a jet engine.

I know it is a typo. Just entertaining myself on a boring Saturday. No harm meant.

370Z is coming to India.

Here is what Nissan had to say

" By early 2010, Nissan will introduce the sports car 370Z, which will be its third imported model. "

Another good news "In the meantime, the new editions of the Teana sedan and the X-Trail SUV will hit the roads next month"

So fortuner will have some worthy competetion.

With Complete import and current duty structure expect the price to be between 35-40L, I am guessing. But still not bad, its a fantastic car, achieved great reviews in US and around Europe.

This should have plenty of takers if indeed it lands in the Rs40lakh territory. The 370s are fun cars to drive and pack a superb punch!

Even at current price points, Fortuner has no competition from Nissan. Unless new Xtrail is launched at 30% less price with 30% boost in power and performance. I doubt if the new model will be cheaper than the existing one.

Pretty good car, decent pricing. 0-100 in 5.3 is good.
Don't even think about 35-40L. It would be priced around 50 lacs.
