Nissan 370Z convertible likely to break cover at New York auto showTue, 27 Jan 2009 00:00:00 -0800
The drop-top version of the Nissan 370Z likely will bow at the New York auto show.
The convertible follows the coupe version, launched at the end of December. The open-air 370Z would arrive for the 2010 model year.
Stay tuned for more details on unique specs for the convertible. The coupe is shorter, wider and more powerful than its predecessor, the 350Z.
The new 370Z bowed at the Los Angeles auto show and gets a 3.7-liter V6 rated at 332 hp. A seven-speed automatic or slick-shifting six-speed manual with a feature called SynchroRev Match are offered.
The new, more sculpted car borrows styling cues from iconic Z cars of yesteryear, including the 1970 240Z.
