Beginning today, you can place orders for the 2009 Nissan 370Z with a starting MSRP of $29,930 in six-speed manual trim or $31,230 with the new seven-speed automatic gearbox. Option up for the Touring model with the manual transmission and you'll need to set aside $34,460 or $35,760 with the auto 'box.
More importantly, Nissan has finally priced the Sport Package at $3,000, which includes 19-inch RAYS wheels, Bridgestone Potenza rubber, front and rear spoilers, upgraded brakes, viscous LSD and the much-ballyhooed SyncroRev Match. The Navigation Package will set you back another $1,850 and comes with an iPod interface and 9.3-gig "Music Box Hard Drive." As we said in our First Drive, forget about the luxuries, plunk down the coin for the Sport Pack and pick up the NISMO diff and transmission coolers if you plan to hit the track.
Nissan also used the 370Z's pricing announcement to reveal its new standard tag line "SHIFT_the way you move." The new slogan ditches the ad-dependent rotating completion of "SHIFT_" in favor of a focused idea that "reflects alignment of the direction Nissan is taking to meet changing consumer needs and wants." You can bone up on your Nissan rhetoric and get all the details on the Z's new pricing after the jump.
