Nissan 370Z GT
The Nissan 370Z coupe doesn’t have all-wheel drive, a double-clutch gearbox or an especially clever engine. This is the closest Nissan gets to barn-door engineering – a big, by modern standards, 3.7-litre V6 at the front, a six-speed manual (or seven-speed automatic) gearbox and two seats in the middle and rear-wheel drive at the back.
The Nissan 370Z coupe is not without appeal. A similarly-priced hot-hatch might be more practical (and faster) day to day, but none can provide the same rear-drive, nat-asp, coupe experience as the Nissan. And if you’re into that, this and a Mustang are really your only options.
