Fancy the Nissan 370Z, but want a clear view of the sky and feel the air blowing though your hair at the same time? Well, guess that’s where the Nissan 370Z Roadster comes in. The soft-top two-seater, which made its official debut at KLIMS, is just the item for those unihibited moments.

Like the Coupe version, the 1,565 kg convertible comes wearing a VQ37VHR 3.7 litre twin-cam V6, with Variable Valve and Lift Control, which produces 332 hp. The car at the show featured a 7-speed automatic with paddle shifters, but the brochure lists the 6-speed manual with SynchroRev Match mode option, so the CBA-Z34 can of course be ordered too.

The power-operated top only takes around 20 seconds to open/close, and is operable by either a centre console-mounted switch or a button located on the exterior door handle on both driver and passenger sides.

Features include bi-Xenon headlamps, LED combination rear lamps, an 8-speaker/in-dash 6-CD Bose audio system, black leather upholstery as well as 18-inch 10-spoke alloys, wearing 225/50 front and 245/45 rear series tyres.
