Sharper pricing for 370Z
The new NISMO-tweaked Nissan 370Z will land in Australia next month with prices starting from $61,490.
But the new NISMO flagship and some sharper pricing in the ‘standard’ 370Z Roadster and Coupe could be just the tonic to get the model back on the shopping list of Aussie sports car buyers.

Those price cuts include a new starting price from $49,990 for the coupe, and from $60,990 for the soft-top roadster.
The new prices represent a significant cut of about $6,000 off the old 370Z prices.
But the big talking point is the Australian arrival of the 2018 Nissan 370Z NISMO.
Available only in coupe body-style, will be at the Australian launch of the model at the end of the month, stay tuned for further details and first drive review.
In the meantime, Nissan confirmed the V6 powered offering will come with the choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic (with paddle shifters) transmissions.
Standard kit in the NISMO model includes sat-nav, sports leather accented seats and Bluetooth.
No word though at this stage on whether the flagship model will boast any additional power over the standard 370Z’s 245kW/363Nm.
Nissan boss, Richard Emery, says the price reductions and new NISMO version, will breathe life back into the 370Z.
“This re-positioning offers a range of price points that will be attractive to a wider group of customers.
“We hope this will drive sportscar buyers into Nissan showrooms, giving them more choice and offering significantly more value for money.”
