The Japanese automaker Nissan has just announced pricing for the 2010 Nissan 370Z . Fortunately for Z fans Nissan is keeping true to their roots with an affordable sports car, next year’s asking price will remain under $30,000. The base model with a rev matching six speed transmission is priced at $29,990 and climbs to $31,460 for the seven speed automatic version. A drop top 370Z will set you back $34,660 if you shift it yourself, and $36,130 without a clutch. However the much coveted Nismo edition is priced at a lofty $39,190 and has no slush box option. Either way the 2010 Nissan 370Z is powered by a 3.7 Liter V6 engine that sends a total of 332 HP to the rear wheels, although Nissan’s engineers have managed to squeeze 350 HP from the race bodied Nismo’s VQ37VHR making it even more desirable.
