- Nissan Z(R) Roadster Joins 370Z Coupe in Dealerships Late Summer 2009 -
MISSISSAUGA, ON, April 7 /CNW/ - Today the 2010 Nissan 370Z Roadster will
make its global debut in New York City, revealing its seductive styling and
classic open-air sports car driving excitement. The dramatic new stablemate to
the 2009 Nissan 370Z Coupe, the Z(R)Roadster offers everything the hardtop
Z(R) Coupe does - performance, style and value - with the added exhilaration
of being at one with the open air.
The Z(R) Roadster shares its engine, transmissions, suspension, platform
and most major components with the popular and exceptionally well-reviewed
Z(R) Coupe. The cutting-edge technology includes the standard 332-horsepower
3.7-litre DOHC V6 engine and choice of 7-speed automatic transmission or
close-ratio 6-speed manual with available SynchroRev Match(TM) (the world's
first synchronized downshift rev matching manual transmission).
"The 370Z Roadster delivers the same exceptional performance offered in
the Coupe and more refinement than any other Z(R) convertible that has come
before," said Jeff Parent, vice president of sales and marketing, Nissan
Canada Inc. "Features such as its one-touch, auto-locking convertible top and
beautifully crafted interior might be unexpected in a car this sporty."
The soft-top roof design provides a sleek silhouette matching the new
Z(R)'s stunning styling, top up or down, and the ease of a single-action
open-close operation. Its design ensures an enjoyable top-down experience with
reduced wind turbulence and all-climate driver and passenger comfort.
The Z(R) Roadster is expected in Canadian Nissan dealerships in late
