60sec road test
Flaky build quality, sky-high running costs, deafening road noise – there are plenty of reasons not to buy a 370Z. But stonking pace, affordable pricing and an old-school, hairy-chested driving experience offer a pretty compelling counter argument. The naturally aspirated 3.7-litre V6 in the nose pushes the 370 down the road very quickly, although it sounds industrial rather than sonorous and feels tight and unwilling at higher revs, which is a shame. Nismo version is a much more cohesive car, with more sophisticated suspension and a touch more power, but it’s pricey.
The one we’d buy
The Nismo. It’s much more expensive than the regular Z, but it’s a much better car
The one we’d avoid like the plague
Buying a burly old-school sports car and speccing an auto transmission is arguably missing the point, fine though the ’box is
Rivals to consider
BMW M235i, Lotus Elise, Peugeot RCZ R, Porsche Cayman, Toyota GT86
Lots of fun, good performance-to-pound ratio
Coarse and buzzy drivetrain, truculent gearshift, cheap-feeling interior, lots of noise on the motorway
