Looks more like the 350z or the g35, thats probably what its going to be as of the gas-price crisis that is hitting most markets. Don't really think nissan would really like to put a bigger engine than a 3.5l

Hmm, looks quite neat to me. Looks like Nissan have gone in for an evolution of the 350Z, without being overly radical or changing anything too much. Nice find KSA! And great imaging by LeftLane, looks almost real doesnt it!

IMO, the image is photoshopped.
The roofline visible above the right door does indicate that the image is a make over. However, if at all the real thing looks like this image, I hope they work a bit on headlamps. They are too overdone.
The bumper part looked the most impressive to me. The rear wheel arches looks almost Porsche-ish.

You are right, aaggoswami. (See the underlined part in KSA's quoted post).

The 370Z will be offered with an optional NISMO package. i.e. If the car is indeed the real deal, it looks as though the NISMO package will carry on with a larger rear wing, an aero kit all around and a larger wheel and tire package. Upgraded brakes and suspension would also be part of the package.

Default The 370Z is unveiled!

Following months [IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Roshan/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot.jpg[/IMG]of speculation, Nissan finally unveils the big brother successor to the 350Z. The 370Z.

Agreed. The roofline doesn't look very good, it's more reminiscent of a Z4M Roadster than the elegance and poise of the 350Z.

Looks being subjective, I find this radically good.

Looking at it im confident that it'll be atleast 5 times better looking in the flesh rather than pictures.
No argument on the interior though, its simply awesome.

PS: Nismo apparently have started planning some interesting work on it already
