• Nissan’s stunning new 370Z Roadster will make its UK public debut at the Goodwood Revival this weekend (18-20 September)
  • Eager buyers get the chance to see the Roadster that brings all of the 370Z’s appeal to the convertible market in advance of its March 2010 UK on sale date
  • New model will be on display at the ever-popular Goodwood Revival event alongside the mighty GT-R, the classic 240Z and the first Skyline GT-R

Classic cars, period dress and a historic British location set the scene for Nissan to unveil its new 370Z Roadster alongside some of its most iconic predecessors.

At this weekend’s Goodwood Revival, the public will get its first change to get up close and personal with Nissan’s latest high performance, high value model. While it doesn’t go on sale in the UK until March next year, the tide of enthusiasm for the Roadster is growing as the 370Z coupe roars onto Britain’s roads.

In keeping with the West Sussex event’s historical theme, the 370Z Roadster will see the light of day in Britain for the first time alongside some of Nissan’s most recognisable performance models of the past. In addition to the 21st century crowd pulling power of the latest GT-R supercar, the legendary 240Z will provide an insight into the Z-car bloodline while the original Skyline – the KPGC10 – will also be on display.

With prices for the 370Z Roadster still to be announced, the latest addition to Nissan’s sporting family brings affordability to drivers looking for exhilarating open air driving. Power in the rear-wheel drive Roadster comes from a 3.7-litre V6 engine, with a tantalising high-revving soundtrack.

But there’s more to this convertible than just brute force – Nissan’s latest technology provides enhanced efficiency and drivability. Buyers will have a choice of two new transmissions – a close-ratio 6-speed manual or a 7-speed automatic. Like the 370Z coupe, the manual Roadster will be available with SynchroRev Match™, which automatically controls and adjusts engine speed when shifting to the exact speed of the next gear position – effectively blipping the throttle for the smoothest possible changes.

And unlike some convertible rivals, the 370Z Roadster maintains its sleek appearance with the roof up or down. The soft top not only provides a quick and easy one-motion closed-open movement, but it has also been designed to minimise wind noise when both up and down.

Paul Willcox, MD of Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd comments: “The famous Goodwood Revival gives us the perfect stage to show the 370Z Roadster off to the public for the first time. Nissan has a strong and lengthy performance car heritage which is what makes our sports models so special today. We can’t wait to get the Roadster on sale in Britain and this gives potential buyers a sneak preview.”

Exact prices and UK specifications for the 370Z Roadster will be announced closer to its on sale date in March 2010.

  • The Goodwood Revival takes place at the Goodwood Motor Circuit and claims to be the world’s most popular historic motor race meeting. Further information is available at www.goodwood.co.uk.
