Nissan Motors, one of the leading Japanese automobile manufacturers in the world, has produced a number of cars of praiseworthy performance through the years. A few of their noteworthy cars were the Z cars, cars based on the Z platform. The said platform was introduced in 1970, and after 35 long years, cars manufactured with the said platform continue to impress car buyers. The latest and the most current car introduced using the same platform is the 2005 Nissan 350Z.
The current Nissan 350Z is the fifth generation of Nissan's Z-car line. It stands on a variant of the original Z chassis called the Z33. Current models of the car are available in two body styles, namely coupe and roadster. There are 5 trim levels available, starting with the Base model priced at $26,000 to the premium Track Edition priced at $34,000. Other trims with price rates falling in between the two trims include the Enthusiast, Performance, and Touring Editions.
A balance of powerful engine, excellent over-all design, and use of high quality parts gives the Nissan 350Z the powerful performance it is known for. In both roadster and coupe forms, the Nissan 350Z comes equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine rated at 287 hp with 274 lb-ft of torque. The car is also extremely lightweight due to the use of carbon-fiber composite materials for its driveshaft and the extensive use of aluminum for its suspension and engine. Furthermore, the body of the Nissan 350Z was aerodynamically designed to maximize the effects of airflow through its body.
While the 350Z's exterior and mechanical design is aimed toward performance, the interior design is aimed toward comfort and functionality. Inside the Nissan 350Z, one can witness the various uniquely designed amenities that can make driving more comfortable. It also comes standard with a lot of functional systems like the Nissan Navigation System, automatic temperature control, power seat controls and various others.
