2016 Nissan 370Z: A Proper Sports Car

How do we define “sports car?” How about a rear wheel drive coupe with a naturally aspirated 330 horsepower V6, and incredibly precise steering?

When you step into the Z, you’ll see the driver-centric interior. Some of the gauges, like oil temperature, are aimed directly at the driver, like in the MKIV Supra. Both the tach and speedo move with the steering wheel when it’s adjusted.

You’ll need to keep your eyes on that speedo because the Z hits 60 in 5.1 seconds. You’ll hear noise from the engine, tires, and exhaust, and it’s absolutely brilliant. The Z has the most precise steering I’ve ever experienced. It’s heavy, on center, and you know exactly what the front tires are doing at all times. Entering and exiting the highway in the Z is downright exhilarating.

I’ll never forget my time behind the wheel of the Z. It’s a visceral, driver-focused experience that stimulates the senses.
