FOUR DECADES OF HERITAGE
Nissan’s ‘Z-car’ has been a dominant force in sports coupes for more than four decades. The latest Nissan 370Z coupe traces its roots to the legendary 240Z that took the world by storm with its exceptional looks and powerful performance. Fast forward to today, and you’ll find that the basic formula defining the ‘Z’ has stayed the same – now with a remarkable 328PS 3.7L V6 engine and a host of technical advances.
As long as there’s been a Nissan 'Z', a soulful six-cylinder has been part of the recipe. In this case, it’s the fourth generation of the VQ V6 engine. That means 3.7 litres of muscle, finely honed with Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL) technology – a clever system that adjusts valve opening and timing for quicker responses and a broader torque curve.
