Suspension for the rear-wheel drive Z® Roadster is a 4-wheel independent design. Standard 350Z Roadster Enthusiast features include power seats, power-operated soft top, rear wind deflector, 17-inch alloy wheels, xenon headlights, automatic climate control, a choice of 5-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission and more. The upper side bolster is sculpted in the middle for easy shifting and steering, while the lower side bolster is designed wider and deeper to keep the driver squarely behind the wheel. At 135mph on a closed private runway , it feels more stable than some supercars. Seatbelt fasteners were also added to help keep seatbelts from flapping in the wind. Unique to all convertibles is the high visibility of the interior. There is also sufficient luggage space in the trunk even though the top is stored in the trunk area when down.
A lockable luggage floor box capable of storing a briefcase and other storage places are standard. Knowing this, the designers of the Z® Roadster put a heavy emphasis on the interior design of the car. Both 6-speed close-ratio manual and 5-speed automatic transmissions are available.

Sounds reasonable, for an idea whose time has finally come.
The Z® Roadster went on sale in the summer of 2003. After seeing the paint you will notice the bright chrome Advanti wheels. Nissan hasn't released pricing yet, but figure on a five- to seven-grand premium over the cost of a similarly equipped coupe. Top-down aerodynamics are good too, making it a comfy car to drive top down on the motorway. All the better to hear those melodious, warbling dual exhaust pipes.
Upon viewing the vehicle, you will first be drawn in by the great contrasting colors of the orange paint and black convertible top. Like the Z® Coupe, the instrument panel features three gauge pods consisting of the drive computer, oil pressure gauge and voltmeter, as well as modern touches such as an optional navigation system with 7-inch display. The first year there was only a coupe, as the roadster did not debut until the following year. The Z Concept was unveiled in Detroit Motor Show two years later, which was similar in body shape but with a new front end. A key component to minimizing interior noise is a tempered glass wind deflector located between the seats that directs wind out and over the cabin. .
We expect the Z's weight to increase about 200 pounds, though the effect on performance should be minimal. The concept seems simple, but the job of converting 's fastback sports car into a convertible is an involved one. The trunk has up to 4. Drivability has been further improved for use in the Z® Coupe and Roadster by adopting an electronically controlled throttle, and the use of a highly rigid cylinder block combines with other measures to produce engine sounds worthy of a sports car. This is the first year that Nissan produced a 350Z roadster for the road. Come see this Black Nissan Z Car and own your own high performance Z-Car from Skyway Classics.
The Nissan 350z Convertible is fast 0-60mph in 5. The 2004 350Z Roadster was be offered in two well-equipped models — 350Z Roadster Enthusiast Model and 350Z Roadster Touring Model. The clutch is similarly as unsatisfactory, so even more reasons to buy one with an auto-box. The slickest, trickest part of the deal is the rear deck, which not only serves as a design element, but creates a hard tonneau cover for the one-touch power top. The six-speed manual gearbox is horrid.
Followed by a black dash and carpeting. Back in 2004 the Nissan 350Z put down a formidable amount of power. Like I said before, it is great on highway speeds, but in the city, it struggles to give you rocketship starts. It used the same 3. Moving to interior the seats are unique.
The 350Z entered production in late 2002 and was sold and marketed as a 2003 model. This enables the engine to deliver not only outstanding start-off acceleration and high-speed passing performance, but also torque characteristics suitable for city driving. The Z was designed with this body configuration in mind, so it's hardly an aftermarket chop job. Though the Z® Roadster is executed as a sports car, thorough attention has also been paid to storage capacity — storage designed for a convertible. During the design phase of the Z® Roadster, engineers devoted countless hours conducting wind tunnel tests. The coupe's rear hatch gives way to a conventional trunklid incorporating a mild spoiler, and the center brake light finds its way onto the tonneau. Thick plastic shrouds encapsulate the rollhoops just aft of the headrests; a clear plastic wind blocker runs between them.
This particular V6 is mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission. As a result, the Z® Roadster is expected to be among the leading competitors for low interior noise with the top down. Other than an extra body cutline to allow the top to deploy, the packaging and hardware that make the Z into a roadster look well integrated and downright handsome. With only 79,045 actual miles on the clock this Nissan will take you down the road for years to come. Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to have this awesome Burnt Orange 2004 Nissan 350Z Convertible in its Tampa Showroom. And, unlike other convertibles in class, the top stows compactly under a lightweight powered tonneau cover, completely hiding the top when down. The door vents and center console have a solid, chiseled-from-a-block-of-aluminum look.
