Nissan 350Z Coupe (2008)

Check the official PR and high res images after the jump.

The 350Z Coupe takes its cues from the original 1970 Datsun 240Z – a front engine/rear-wheel drive configuration, two-seat interior, a powerful 6-cylinder engine and, like the original, features a true hatchback body. Design cues passed on from the first-generation Z® include the long nose and short deck styling, triangular cabin form and the lines extending from the arch-shaped roof to the hatchback opening.

The front end's sleek, aggressive design includes High Intensity Discharge (HID) bi-xenon (high and low beam xenon) headlights. The Z®'s strong, spine-like beltline is anchored with large, distinctive LED taillights for better visibility and quicker lighting times than conventional lights. Other standard Z® body elements include an aluminum hood, distinctive vertical door handles and heated outside mirrors. The coupe models' coefficient of drag is 0.30 for the Base, Enthusiast and Touring models and 0.29 for the Grand Touring model – which includes front and rear spoilers.

Inside, the Z® Coupe interior features steering wheel audio controls (except base model), mp3-CD capability for the available Bose® audio system and standard XM® Satellite Radio with body-color antenna on Coupe models. Also available for 2008 is a Nissan Navigation System, which offers intelligent search capabilities and split screen capability (allows viewing of map and intersection simultaneously).

The Z®'s classic 3-bay gauge pod is similar to original 240Z design, while the specially shaped driver's seat (different from passenger design) holds the body firmly in place during enthusiastic driving.

The driver's seat of the Z® Roadster is tailored for performance. The base cushion is firm and long for additional support, while bolster cutouts under the thighs optimize pedal operation. The upper side bolster is sculpted in the middle for easy shifting and steering, while the lower side bolster is designed wider and deeper to keep the driver squarely behind the wheel.

2008 350Z Base and Enthusiast Coupe models feature an 8-way manual driver's seat/4-way manual passenger's seat and black woven "carbon" seat cloth. Touring and Grand Touring Coupes come standard with 8-way power driver/4-way power passenger leather-appointed seats in a choice of three colors (Frost, Charcoal and Burnt Orange).

The long list of standard equipment includes automatic temperature control, a lockable rear luggage box behind the passenger seat, center console with solid aluminum look, power windows with auto one-touch up and down, power door locks, aluminum pedals (except Base model) and HomeLink® Universal Transceiver (except Base model). The Z® Coupe is available with a Bose® audio system with 6-disc CD changer and 7 speakers, heated seats and illuminated steering wheel audio controls.
