Nissan beefs up 350Z
6 March 2006

Nissan has introduced a mild price increase on its 350Z for 2006 - but bumped up the specification and horsepower at the same time.

The base-model 350Z will now cost £26,300, a rise of £800 over the current model. But it now comes with bi-xenon headlights and 18-inch lightweight alloy wheels, a combination that would have cost £1700 extra. In addition, a revised inlet manifold boosts the 350Z's engine to 295bhp, up 20bhp, and allows it to rev to a 6400rpm redline.

At £2500 over the base model, the GT Pack adds electric, heated leather seats, a 240-watt Bose stereo system with six-disc CD changer, and cruise control. The convertible Roadster models are still available for a £1500 premium.

Nissan has also made further options available on the range, including factory-fitted DVD satellite navigation (£1200) and a vivid orange leather interior (350).
