Nissan 370Z convertible to be unveiled in New York

Nissan 370Z fq1

The 2009 Nissan 370Z has already proven itself overseas as one of the best performance bargains on the market, but for those who crave the wind blown experience that only a drop-top can deliver, a convertible variant is right around the corner. Nissan will unveil the 370Z convertible at the New York Auto Show on April 8th, and according to early reports it’s going to look remarkably better than its predecessor.

The awkward roofline and misshapen rear will be dispatched in favor of a more fluid canvas roof, because unlike the 350Z, the 370 was designed from scratch as a convertible. As previously reported, Nissan decided early on that a retractable hard-top was out of the question, mainly due to packaging and weight constraints. The 3.7-litre V6 will carry over, along with the choice of a manual or automatic gearbox and Base or Touring trims.
