The Nissan 350Z Roadster is a beefy drivers’ car. Although in removing the roof it gained some weight the 350Z lost nothing of the coupe’s muscle or well-balanced handling. Removing the roof also helps drivers hear the fantastic engine note even better. The Nissan 350Z competes very well with other roadsters in its class, but the lack of a prestige brand name has kept it a relatively scarce site on the roads. Running costs aren’t cheap.
