wow amazing looking car and an able successor to the 350Z. Thanks to Nissan now more companies would start bringing in such cars.

Good things come in small packages... and with Nissan launching its 370Z in India at a mouthwatering price, its sure to catch the eye of the hardcore speed freaks and motor enthusiasts.

the car looks pretty hot but at this price isn't it right in the Porsche Boxster S and Cayman territory?? and i think one would prefer the Porsche than a nissan.

also i saw the autocar review and according to it the cars tail can get out of control which surprises me. now this car is as expensive as a porsche boxster S and not a roadster and not that great a handler compared to the porsche!

so what is nissan trying to do here only they can answer...

Nissan is probably trying to establish itself as a "premier car maker" before it launches its bread and butter models like Micra.

This will just increase snob value of their products, I don't think they are seriously interested in selling this car, its just a marketing ploy!

I'm not a fan of the design of the latest Z. Gone are the distinctive lines that distinguished this model in the past and i pray for the day when price paid determines the snob value of a car in India ends.

Haha!
And I thought in a distant dream, that I'd be the first one to post the pics of the 370Z!

Kudos Manish great pics!
Somehow I can't say the same thing about the car though.
I somehow think that the 370Z does not make any sense whatsoever.

Agree with you 100% Preetam. I think its a desparate attempt at keeping the Z badge alive. The 240 and the 280 Zs were really good and so was the 300Zx (for me at least!). They had clean lines and were something fresh and original. The 350 Z was a breath of fresh air for the Z badge but the 370 in my personal opinion just doesnt cut it in the looks department. Its a great car to drive though. What say?

Nice Pics there, but really. The car is crap. Like slick said, a very desperate attempt to revive the Z brand. I think i would buy a 350 any day over 370.

One doubt, why is all 370's displayed are red ? Haven't they heard of any other color ?

@ Scorcher: May be because its the same car which is being displayed everywhere.
And yeah i agree even i would pick a 350 over 370..anyday.
