2011 Nissan 370Z Touring Review on staff breaks down the 2011 Nissan 370Z Touring!

There aren’t too many true sports cars on the road today, but from our first impressions to riveting drive time behind the wheel of the 2011 Nissan 370Z Touring, this car delivers for sports car enthusiasts. Our test model sported a pearl white exterior that added a soft touch to the otherwise untamed sports machine waiting for you to hit the push-button start so the games could begin!

The styling of the 2011 Nissan 370Z is unmistakable on the road, and with the aggressive design this pure sports car makes statements whether she is on the road or sitting idle. The low stance with the history of the Z car abound, we get a peak at the past but a clear vision of the future in the design of the 2011 Nissan 370Z Touring. Our test model was the upscale Touring edition and came equipped with 19 inch RAYS forged wheels that developed a following of their own while we drove the 370Z. Also included were front chin and rear spoilers, Bi functional Xenon headlights, power remote control door mirrors, heated outside mirrors, fender mounted Z emblem side markers, aluminum hood, hatch lid and UV shielded glass. According to Nissan, “The 370Z’s taut exterior design incorporates intentional 240Z styling cues, a sleek aerodynamic shape, a ‘dynamic motion’ feel with a dramatic cantilevered roof and a ‘low visual gravity.’ The sleek silhouette is defined by its upswept quarter window design that is echoed by the dynamic upward curvature in the lower rocker panel and the sense of the taut sheet metal molding itself around the wheels and frame.” We feel the exterior of the 2011 Nissan 370Z Touring rivals some of the ultra expensive sports cars and gets as much or even more attention than rivals while on the streets.
