350Z vs. 370Z - Which Nissan Sports Coupe Takes Gold?
Racing enthusiasts are in the middle of a heated debate over the Nissan 350Z vs. the 370Z. Compared with your standard sedan, both vehicles satisfy a need for speed, but the innovative new 370Z model seems like it may give drivers an edge over their competition.
Only time will tell whether owners are able to upgrade their 350Zs to surpass the advantages offered by the innovative 370Z model or if they’ll eventually need to surrender. There’s no doubt that 370Z model is certainly making a name for itself rather quickly in the fast-paced, super competitive automobile racing sphere.
As the newer model, the 370Z admittedly offers more impressive stats than the original 350Z model. For example:
- Output is increased by 26 hp and 2lb-ft of torque
- Curb weight is 61lbs less
- Tighter turning radius
- Increased fuel efficiency
- Decreased NVH
While the 370Z does have a similar look to the 350Z, that is certainly the greatest similarity between the two. The car offers serious speed. It can go up to 850 whp with race gas and proper tuning and 450 whp with the optional upgraded fuel system.
The 350Z is the original model. While it’s a great car, it may not be the ideal choice for racing enthusiasts, as it doesn’t have the juice of the 370Z model. Some of the issues noted in this car are the following:
- Fuel starvation with full fuel tank less than 70 percent full
- Brake rotors and pads meant for aggressive street use, not race tracks
- High oil temperatures throughout the car
If you’re looking to upgrade your 350Z, it may be possible to increase its speed with the addition of better brakes and improved aerodynamics. This can be a much more cost-effective way to drop a few seconds from your time than selling the car and upgrading to the 370Z.
