2009 Nissan 370Z Long-Term Road Test


2009 Nissan 370Z: It's a sexy sportscar

October 19, 2009

Nissan 370Z interior nite.JPGI was reminded again this past weekend that our long-term 2009 Nissan 370Z is a helluva sexy sportscar.

When I left the office Friday night it was already dark. As I left the parking garage I was greeted with a view similar to the above pic. The instruments are bathed in an orange-reddish light -- if it's too bright for you, turn it down with the rheostat.
The ambience is quite attractive -- and sexy (except for the Atari-inspired clock and fuel gauge.)

Adding to this feeling is that the car is low and that you're also sitting low -- damn near on the deck. As you accelerate and watch the HID lamps cast their eerie pattern, you feel like you're flying a UFO through traffic.

Is the BMW 135 a better all-around performer? Yup.

But all it takes is a night drive at speed in the 370Z to remind you that this isn't yet another two-door sedan.
