2005 Nissan 350Z Performance 2dr Coupe OverviewThe Nissan 350Z recaptures elements of the original Datsun 240Z.It's fast, it's fun, it's pure sports car.And, like the original Z, it's affordable, or at least attainable.
This year Nissan commemorates 35 years of Z production with a special anniversary edition coupe, and there's much more to the model than just the unique badging.A significant dose of performance has also been added, including a bump in engine output to 300 horsepower, big Brembo brakes, 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels and improved aerodynamics.There's also a new, very special high-chrome pearl Ultra Yellow pigment on the color chart.
The coupe, introduced as an all-new model for 2003, and the convertible, which debuted last year, get important upgrades, new features and revised transmissions.All 350Zs share the same sports suspension and Nissan's superb V6 engine, which punches out 287 horsepower and strong torque.Both models come standard with racy hardware: a six-speed manual gearbox, carbon-fiber driveshaft, drive-by-wire throttle, anti-lock discs vented front and rear with electronic brake-force distribution.Add the convenience features that come standard, such as automatic temperature control and a premium stereo, and the price of the Nissan 350Z is compelling.
Coupe or roadster, the 350Z delivers racecar handling, rear-wheel drive, and thrilling acceleration performance.The suspension keeps the tires glued to the road through fast chicanes.Bounce over the curbs on a road racing circuit and the Z will hold its line.Styling details like the controversial industrial-design door handles ensure this car will never be called bland.
Nissan says the 350Z was designed to be a sports car an enthusiast can live with every day.While its firm ride, abrupt throttle response, and awkward cup holders don't make it a great place to drink coffee, eat doughnuts, and make phone calls on the way to work, it is a comfortable car with usable cargo space, and getting in and out isn't impossibly awkward.Order a version with the excellent five-speed automatic, and you'll have a better commuter for the daily stop-and-go.
Bottom line: The Nissan 350Z is no poser.It more than delivers on the promise of its stellar looks.It's a real sports car with serious GT performance.The Roadster adds wind-in-your hair freedom.
