Motor Trend was able to be the first to get its hands on the Nissan 370Z to put it through the paces. The big number to come from the actual testing is that the 370Z officially made the the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 4.7 seconds (predictions had it around five seconds.) Other key figures include, quarter mile: 13.3 seconds @ 105.7 mph and 60 to 0 mph: 106 ft.

What makes this special is the Motor Trend also put the 334 hp, $34,000 Nissan up against the 510 hp, $278,000 Aston Martin DBS. Although the Aston is quicker to 60 mph by a small margin (DBS does it 4.2 seconds,) The 370Z holds its own pretty well for a car that cost $244,000 less.

Motor Trend do their testing with rollouts. From standstill, this car should do 4.9 seconds to the 60mph. Still highly impressive, I’ll say.
