It’s been a long time coming since the world saw the debut of the Nissan 370Z. With their commitment to bringing “innovation that excites customers”, Nissan PH has announced that beginning April of this year, the 370Z will mark its official PH release.
With its racing pedigree and its distinct design, it’s easy to see why the 370Z has been hailed as the rightful sibling to the Nissan GT-R.
“Nissan has a proven heritage of producing some of the most iconic sports cars in the world, and we’re very excited to celebrate this legacy with the Nissan 370Z. The Nissan 370Z has brought great innovation to the sports car segment, showcasing the perfect combination of practicality and performance,” says Atsushi Najima, Nissan in the Philippines president & Managing Director.
On the outside, the 370Z sports a sleek and low roofline, leading to better aerodynamics. Its short wheelbase and low ride height also contribute to quicker response and better handling. Its distinct bumper design is paired with bi-xenon HID projector lamps and LED daytime running lights, adding to its menacing look. A worthwhile update comes in the form of 19” forged alloy wheels from Rays Engineering, an iconic brand in itself, with dual exhaust outlets and a sleek rear spoiler round up the 370Z’s aesthetics.
The interior carries its sporting demeanor by way of its driver-centric cockpit, 4-way power-adjustable sport seats, triple-pod meters, and aluminum pedals. Other amenities include a push start and stop button and an 8-speaker Bose sound system.
“We are very happy to turn the ‘sports car dream’ into a reality for Filipinos everywhere this April, as we introduce the Nissan 370z into the market. We are looking forward to sharing this with Filipinos craving for a new and thrilling driving experience,” he further added.
For the true Nissan fan and enthusiast, the 370Z NISMO will also be made available. Exclusive NISMO front and rear bumpers, side sills, rear spoiler, and door mirrors provide both form and function by giving it a more aggressive and aerodynamic look while enhancing front and rear downforce. Better power is delivered with a NISMO dual exhaust system.
The NISMO edition comes with a 7-speed automatic transmission with black magnesium paddle shifters located aft of the steering wheel. It also features NISMO-branded strut tower braces for enhanced body rigidity and performance dampers for better handling.
Wider wheels are likewise exclusive to the NISMO edition. Still made by Rays, the 19” forged alloy wheels feature a twin-five spoke design and a charcoal gray machine finish. The interior also receives the NISMO treatment by way of Recaro Sport Seats and steering wheel wrapped in leather and Alcantara, NISMO red tachometer and NISMO badging.
Powering both Premium and NISMO variants is the Nissan VQ37 engine, a 3.7-liter DOHC 24-valve V6. The power plant churns out around 332HP with 363 Nm of torque. It is paired with the world’s first SynchroRev matching system, for the 6-speed manual transmission or 7-speed automatic transmission with magnesium paddle shifters and downshift rev-matching feature. Further enhancing the performance are the sport-tuned shock absorbers, Nissan Sport Brakes, Limited Slip Differential, and a Carbon Fiber Composite Driveshaft.
The Nissan 370Z Premium will be available with either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed automatic transmission, officially priced at PhP 2,779,000 and PhP 2,879,000, respectively, in select dealerships nationwide. The Nissan 370Z NISMO, priced at PhP 3,888,000, will only be available at the Nissan High Performance Center in Quezon Avenue.
