Committed to injecting a bit of excitement to its local line-up, Nissan Philippines has just announced the availability and pricing of the 2020 Nissan 370Z. The iconic rear-wheel drive sportscar will be made available at all Nissan dealerships starting this April 2020 with prices starting at P 2.779 million.
Hailed as the sibling to the GT-R, and in the developer’s own words—a “better dance partner” (that’s why its Japanese market name is Fairlady Z), the Nissan 370Z offers a strong performance and celebrated heritage.
The 2020 Nissan 370Z is equipped with a 3.7-liter V6. This award-winning VQ37 engine makes 332 horsepower and 363 Nm of torque. This is paired to either a 6-speed manual with the world’s first SynchroRev matching system, or a 7-speed automatic with magnesium paddle shifters and Downshift Rev Matching. Further enhancing the performance are the sport-tuned shock absorbers, sport brakes, limited slip differential, and a carbon fiber composite driveshaft.
Outside, the 370Z wears its strong heritage design on its sleeve. It features HID projector headlights with LED daytime running lights, 19-inch RAYS forged alloy wheels, dual exhausts, and a rear spoiler. Inside, it has a driver-focused cockpit with 4-way power adjustable seats, a center-mounted triple meter, an 8-speaker Bose sound system, push start/stop, and sports pedals.
For more discerning enthusiasts, Nissan Philippines is also offering the more exclusive 370Z NISMO. It features a full NISMO aero kit—front and rear bumpers, side sills, rear spoiler, and door mirrors which are functional as they are aggressive-looking. Completing the exterior changes are NISMO exclusive 19-inch RAYS super lightweight forged alloy wheels. The interior also features NISMO-styled elements including Recaro Sport Seats and steering wheel wrapped in leather and Alcantara, NISMO red tachometer, and NISMO badging.
And befitting its motorsports heritage, the 370Z NISMO massages its V6 engine to 344 horsepower and 371 Nm of torque. This engine is paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission. Added power aside, the 370Z NISMO also receives a free-flowing exhaust system as well as performance dampers and a strut tower brace for increased rigidity.
“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 Philippines President & Managing Director “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.”
The Nissan 370Z Premium will be available in both a 6-speed manual transmission and 7-speed automatic transmission, priced at P 2,779,000 and P 2,879,000, respectively, in select dealerships nationwide. Meanwhile, the Nissan 370Z NISMO, priced at P 3,888,000, will be exclusively available at the Nissan High Performance Center in Quezon Avenue.
