Great feelgood roadster. Looks and sounds great. V6 engine delivers muscular performance.
Firm ride on 19-inch wheels. High CO2 means expensive tax. Far from economical.
Updated 19 November 2012

Electric steering lock failures quite widely reported in the USA now occurring in the UK. Cost to replace is £1,600.

Introduction

The 370Z Roadster is every inch the sports car that the 370Z Coupe is. It's fantastic to drive, sharply styled and has an exhaust note to match anything else with a similar price tag. And that includes some pretty stiff competition, including the BMW Z4, 

The only difference is that the swooping coupe roof is replaced with a well-insulated fabric roof. It looks good too. When it's raised, the roof mimics the look of the coupe and, at the press of a button, is lowered in just 20 seconds behind a panel behind the seats.

Like the 370Z Coupe, on which the Roadster is based, it's both shorter and wider than the old 350Z and has power from a larger 332bhp 3.7-litre V6 engine. Much of the original 350Z 'proper sports car' recipe stays the same, though, with rear-wheel drive, a large large capacity naturally-aspirated engine and a solid-feeling six-speed gearbox.
