It's already the one bright spot in the affordable sports car market, but now Nissan is going for gold with a special version of the storming Nissan 370Z coupe. Not for shrinking violets, the new Nissan 370Z Yellow lives up to its name in spectacular fashion.
Ultimate Yellow is the paint job and it signals a Nissan 370Z with everything that people expect of the 331PS sportster along with a rare exclusivity - there will be a limited number of Yellows available - and a potent visual impact that takes the Nissan 370Z's muscular looks to new heights. Some cars were just born to be yellow.
The Nissan 370Z Yellow gets design cues that nod at the racing Nissan 370Zs from the European GT4 series. The wheels are 19-inch RAYS forged alloys and along the flanks are special 370Z graphics, both items setting off the gleaming yellow body to perfection.
Inside the contrast could not be greater: the theme here is black leather and suede. There's an integrated satellite navigation system, illuminated entry plates, special mats and a BOSE audio with eight speakers and a six-CD autochanger. The sophistication continues with heated seats, cruise control, speed limiter and all the other features from the Nissan 370Z GT Pack on which the special Yellow model is based.
The Nissan 370Z Yellow is, like all the new-generation versions of this world famous sports car dynasty, powered by an enthusiast's delight of a V6 engine. It pumps out 331PS at 7000rpm backed up by a meaty 270lb ft of pulling power.
With a six-speed manual box (a seven-speed automatic is optional), the Nissan 370Z Yellow sprints from rest to 62mph in 5.3sec and goes on to a restricted top speed of 155mph. A synchronised rev control during down changes reminds you just how good the engine sounds - even when just trundling to the shops.
The Nissan 370Z Yellows for the UK are available from all participating Nissan dealers but definitely from all High Performance Centres where its big brother the Nissan GT-R is exclusively sold. The first cars will be available from September 2009 with prices from £31,650 (manual gears) or £33,050 (automatic).
