The Nissan 350Z is the fifth iteration of Nissan's Z series sports cars and succeeded the 300ZX in 2002 for the 2003 model year.

For this generation, Nissan replaced the VG engine lineup of the 300ZX with a single 3.5 litre VQ35DE V6 engine. The styling of the 350Z was influenced by the Datsun 240Z.

In September 2005, the 350Z received a minor facelift.

Need for Speed: World

The 350Z was made available in Need for Speed: World on March 5, 2010 during the first closed beta session as a tier 2 car. Since August 22, 2012, it had been featured as a D class car.

Most notable trait of it is its acceleration and its decent nitrous speed boost. There are some handling issues because of its heavy steering before May 1, 2012, which was greatly improved with more reactive steering. Understeer at high speed is still perceptible but occurs less frequently than before.

It is best used in high-speed tracks, where its acceleration can be used effectively.
