Nissan's replacement for their 350Z is on the way and our hunger for 370Z information is correspondingly on the rise. So far we have had to 'make do' with a rather grainy mobile phone camera image but thankfully all that changed when the above image lobbed into Dan's inbox earlier today. If this is the 'real deal' then we have our first good look at Nissan's next Z-car.
Assuming it is, then Nissan have tightened the lines for the 370Z (codename C53D), while staying true to the overall shape of the current 350Z, more evolution than revolution. The front headlights are the only dramatically obvious new addition and are now the focal point of the new Zeds styling. In addition to the dramatic new shape, the front headlights are believed to use LED technology.
The 370Z's bonnet has lost most of the bulge seen in the current VQ35HR-equipped 350Z, a fact which suggests that the 246kW 3.7-litre VQ37VHR tipped to power the 370Z is mounted lower than the outgoing motor.
The 370Z is not due to make its official debut until the Los Angeles motor show beginning on November 19 this year.
