2010 Nissan 370Z (photos)

One of the best dedicated sport cars you can buy today, the Nissan 370Z's short wheel-base makes it brilliant in the turns. This particular car has a seven-speed automatic transmission, a strange choice for this fast little car.

The 370Z is an excellent update on the classic Z cars of the 1970s. Its wide and short proportions make it an excellent canyon carver.

Nissan keeps the 370Z's front styling particularly clean, with the boomerang headlights smoothly molded into the fenders and the air intake open without adornment.

Nissan's 3.7-liter V-6 engine is good for 332 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, more than enough to get this two-seater moving quickly.

The 370Z's cockpit is planted a little forward of where it was in the first Zs, contributing to better balance.

Rays wheels, bigger brakes, and a limited slip differential come as part of an optional Sports package.

The ride quality of the 370Z is a perfect balance between comfortable and sporty. The car stays very flat in the corners, but it won't break your back when riding over a pothole.

The Nissan's cargo area is very shallow. You won't be piling a lot of luggage back here.

The cabin of the 370Z offers a luxury feel, more so than most Nissan cars.

Switches for audio and cruise control are set into the steering wheel spokes, along with a button to activate the Bluetooth hands-free phone system.

As a sports car, the tachometer is front and center, with the speedometer off to the right.
