Click above to watch video after the jump

The new 2009 Nissan 370Z touts improved power, efficiency, handling and updated sheet metal for under $30,000. That makes the 370Z a bit of a performance bargain, and when you consider improved fit and finish, lighter weight and impressive new technology upgrades, Z fans should be plenty happy. While it's nice to see high resolution pics of the new car, we like to see how it looks out on the road, as well. Follow the jump to check out Nissan's rolling stock footage, which contains plenty of shots of the 370Z out on twisting paths. There are also several diagrams that spell out how upgrades like Nissan's variable valve and SynchroRev Match tech works.

      Is it too much to ask for a higher end track model with/out leather and a turbo! Please! PLEASE! PLEEEEEEEEEEEASE!

      This video is the U.S.S. Failboat going down if there is no sound. I want to hear the exhaust. I used to have a modded '04 350Z before some dumb woman in a Dodge Caravan decided it would be fun to t-bone it. Now Im just buying time until this thing comes out. Ohh boy.....can't wait for January!!!

        If this has the same exhaust that 95% of Nissan's other cars use, it'll sound something like this.

        wwwwWWWUUHHHHHwwwwWWWUUHHHHH

      I would call the base model a performance bargain to be sure, but really; who goes with that?

      If you look at the current 350z, the base model is the low-tech, Viperish style car that's "me, the car, and the road" sort of mentality. No limited slip, traction control, VDC, of course a lack of the holy grail Brembo speed bleeders; but not even cruise control.

      I wish the Brembo upgrade was on a lower trim but I'd pretty much at least need that limited slip if I wanted to have any fun autocrossing that bad boy, which means a $30k sticker, which I'd be would translate to the mid to high $32k's or even low 33's for the 370. Since the 370z only has 2 trims now, I'd believe that the higher one could even cost more than this.

      I love the 370z, I'd even consider buying one despite the impracticality a sports car would mean in my life; but the under bargain under $30k thing.. meh.

      Great video, but no Audio at all. But the video looks like HD quality.

      @ jake

      A turbo set up would be so tight!

      Plus I love the shape of the window, and how it leads into the little half-window section.

      Anyone else got no audio on the vid? Does it require some special codec?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Apparently, none of the videos on the site have sound....oy.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Only one problem....


      ITS UGLY....its looks like a cat fish....



      The previous model looks MUCH better imo.

      No Audio? Does anybody have another link to this video with audio?
        • 6 Years Ago
        I'm not getting any audio, either.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Whats up with the sound?
      • 6 Years Ago
      I know a lot of people don't like it, but I think this car is sexy as hell. His is the closest Nissan has gotten to the original Z formula and I applaud them for it.

      Is anyone getting any sound from the video? I'm not...
        • 6 Years Ago
        thought my browser was acting up. Then i tried restarting my computer. No sound for me either :(

        What a tease...
        • 6 Years Ago
        its true, you gotta give mad props to nissan for the new Z. the shorter wheelbase and great new engine move the Z into another league.

      It feels like this car has been out for like two years with the amount of news ive seen posted on Autoblog about this car during these past few weeks.

      But im glad. This car is personally one of the most exciting mainstream cars ive seen in a while.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yeah maybe we should get more Porsche news instead. SIKE YUPPIE!
