2010 Nissan 370Z Black Edition news, pictures, and information
370Z: BACK TO BLACKJust over 40 years ago a motoring icon was born. As the sixties moved into the 1970s, the Datsun 240Z was launched on the ÚS market. American drivers instantly fell in love wîth the car and sales in that one market alone regularly topped 50,000 units annually. The Z legend had begun.
Now four decades, six generations and well over a million cars later, Nissan is introducing a special celebratory version of the newest two-seater to wear the famous Z badge - the 370Z.
The 370Z Black Edition marks the 40th anniversary in style. Available from April as a coupé only, and in a limited edition run of just 370 units in Europe, it comes in two distinctive metallic shades: black and quartz. Both paints use Nissan's pioneering Scratch Shield technology, 'healing' the finish in the case of stone chip damage.
Inside the 370Z Black edition there are:
• Únique red leather & suede appointed interior (seats & door trim) wîth embossed 40th Anniversary logo seats
• Smooth leather wrapped §teering wheel wîth red stitching
• Red stitching on the centre cluster, centre console and knee pads
• Nissan's Connect Premium state-of-the-art combined touch-screen satellite navigation and audio system wîth ÚSB connectivity
The exterior of the 370Z Black can be identified thanks to:
• Dark grey 19' aluminium forged RAYS wheels
• Eye-catching red brake callipers
• 40th Anniversary emblem on the back door
Standard specification means it already has a bespoke BOSE premium audio system, 19-inch forged alloy wheels, Stop/Start button wîth Nissan's Intelligent Key and a sporting six speed manual transmission wîth unique Synchro Rev Control technology. The electronically controlled rev matching system ensures perfect 'heel and toe' gear changes every time. A seven-speed automatic version wîth column-mounted paddle shifts is available as an option.
The Black Edition comes as standard wîth Nissan's next generation combined audio and navigation system, offering improved ease-of-operation, new and updated features.
At its heart is a high performance Hard Disk Drive (HDD) navigation system that offers customer audio storage capacity of 9.3GB.
Among the many benefits are vastly extended mapping which now includes Turkey, Eastern Europe and Russia, as well as a new easy to follow 3D navigation guidance wîth improved graphics and a more realistic depiction of the road and landmarks ahead for many of Europe's principle cities. The resolution of the new 7 inch screen is up to four times better than the previous generation system.
Real time traffic information is supplied via RDS-TMC, but quicker operation allows the system to offer re-routing in a fraction of the time.
The new generation system uses a touch-screen interface, maximising both ease of use and safety not only for the navigation, but also for other functions such as Bluetooth phone connectivity and entertainment. It is also possible to operate the system using voice recognition.
On-screen instructions can be displayed in eight different languages including English, French, German, Spanish and Italian - while voice recognition is supported in seven - English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Dutch.
The new generation navigation system also allows ÚSB connectivity for portable audio devices. Furthermore, DVDs can be played on the centrally mounted navigation screen (when the car is stationary), while external audio and video devices can be connected via the VTR connections that are found in the central storage box.
In terms of its mechanical specification, the Black Edition matches the standard 370Z. That means a 3.7-litre 24-valve twin cam V6 developing 328PS and a limited top speed of 155mph and a 0-62 mph time of 5.3 seconds (5.6 seconds for the automatic version). The 2010 model year update means the 370Z is now fully compliant wîth forthcoming Euro 5 emission legislation.
Exemplary levels of handling and grip are assured by the focused rear-wheel drive chassis which features fully independent suspension, powerful upgraded brakes and precise speed sensitive power §teering.
Since its launch in June 2009, more than 1,050 examples of the 370Z have been sold across Europe, an exceptional achievement for a niche product in extremely challenging market conditions. The car's largest market to date has been the ÚK, followed by France and Germany.
'The 'story of Z' is full of positives, wîth success not just in the sales charts all over the world but on racetracks and at award ceremonies, too. The 370Z Black Edition is a fitting tribute to a great car,' said Vincent Wijnen, Nissan's European Vice President for Marketing.
Customers can order the 370Z Black Edition from all Nissan High Performance Centres and throughout the dealer network wîth deliveries starting in April.
Prices start from - £33,645 for the manual and £35,045 for the automatic transmission (prices include £750 showroom tax which comes into effect on 1 April 2010).Source - Nissan
