Nissan Releases Rice Racer Recording

Nissan has unleashed a promotional video of its all new Z car – via YouTube. To the soundtrack of Nipponese techno we see inside and outside shots of the 370Z. Exposed to it, the hearts of true Z car zealots may beat a bit faster. “The video itself appears to be for Japanese markets,” says Luxvelocity. Is this a praise, or a cut? We are not sure. But if this is viral marketing, then the spread will remain relatively contained.

    If Rep. Waxman and the environmentalists kill the Mustang, Camaro and/or Corvette as a result of any bailout, then the 370Z is my next car. Even if they don't kill the muscle cars, I may still get a 370Z...

    I guess Dr Lemming just sees a letter. Others, however, see a car. Yeah, that's really annoying... I like the car, though.

    The car mags that got their hands on a 370Z are reporting awesome performance. I think Motor Trend recorded a 4.7 second sprint to 60, a 13.3 second quarter mile, and 0.99 Lateral G's. Road and Track recorded 5.1 seconds to 60, and Car and Driver got 4.9 seconds. A sub-5 second sprint to 60 is awesome, and the handling numbers are, too...
