Yup!, it's time for the next Z, The old 3.5L V6 engine gets an injection of HGH and becomes the new 3.7L V6. Bore size and redline remain the same, but the stroke and compression increases, giving the new 370Z 332hp. It was also said that the vehicle is lighter with a shorter wheelbase than its predecessor. There’s a new seven-speed automatic transmission, and what Nissan says is the world’s first synchronized downshift rev matching system for the six-speed manual gearbox.
On 16th May 2009, the new 370Z was unveiled before a private crowd during a launched ceremony last night by Boustead's Chairman, Dato Paduka Lim Beng Thai at Sheraton Utama Hotel at Bandar Seri Begawan.
Everyone was very surprise to see the real car, what was buzzing on most 350Z owner who saw the car for the first time.
