The 2009 Nissan 370Z will make its world debut this November at the Los Angeles Auto Show. It comes to replace the current 350Z, a very successful model launched only five years ago.
The 2009 370Z will keep the same general shape as the current 350Z, but will be more aggressive and more sportier.Iits shark fin-style headlamps -featuring LED technology- have clearly been inspired by those fitted to the company’s Maxima luxury saloon.
The big changes are under the hood, where Nissan placed the same VQ37VHR powerplant found in the Infiniti G37 — a V6 displacing 3.7 liter — delivering at least 330 hp.
Renault also reported that they might use the new Z platform to resurrect the defunct Alpine brand.
The 2009 Nissan 370Z will compete with models like Porsche Cayman or BMW M Coupe.
The coupe will go on sale in 2009, and the roadster is expected to follow 2 years later. Prices are expected to range between $30,000 and $40,000.
