The nissan 350Z Roadster has been cleared for sale in the UK, and will arrive in dealerships next spring. Already on sale in America, the car has been held back for Europe because Nissan hasn’t been able to meet the huge demand for the coupé, which still has a waiting time of up to five months in Britain.

The European version of the Roadster gets a stiffer chassis for the more sporting requirements of European drivers, and will be shown at next month’s Paris Motor Show before arriving in the UK in February. Power remains unchanged with the 287bhp 3.5-litre V6, while Nissan will offer a GT pack, which adds heated and electric leather seats, upgraded Bose stereo system and cruise control for an extra £2500.

Prices will be announced next month; expect it to cost £2k more than the coupé, with prices startig at just over £26k.
