As for the engine, it has really become more elastic, but I wouldn’t say that the character has changed dramatically- herein, it would be more appropriate to talk about nuances. The engine functions more willingly, and seems to have become more sensitive to the pressure of the foot-throttle.
Handling is the most enjoyable side of the 350Z. The tough and resilient suspension doesn’t annoy at all; on the contrary, it kind of disposes you to a fast driving. The car went through the cracks and bumps of Armenian roads without any hits only slightly tossing its passenger up and down. In the corners, Nissan almost never heeled over, no matter how fast I drove.
The car instantly reacts to the slightest movement of the steering wheel. The tight control of the manual 6-speed gearbox helps you accurately change the speed gear; the clutch, which functions with the highest precision, enables you to never lose precious moments at intensive accelerations.
The braking system was also impressive: the powerful Brembo support will easily stop the car at high speeds without a hint of overheating.
Having spent a whole day with the 350Z, I can testify that this coupe is one of the best in its class. Nissan 350Z is a true sports car, which can be used every day. On weekends, it is sure to give you immense fun on racing tracks.
