The Nissan 370Z (also known as Fairlady Z) is a sports car from Nissan that entered production in December 2008. Replacing the 350Z, the 370Z is currently the newest model in the Z model range and is offered as a coupé and a roadster.

The 370Z is powered by a VQ37VHR 3.7L V6 engine and can be ordered with Nissan's SynchroRev Match, which automatically "blips" the throttle when downshifting to remove the need for heel-and-toe footwork. It received a significant facelift as part of a 2013 model refresh.

Nissan had partnered with EA as a part of their marketing strategy by introducing this car into Need for Speed: Undercover before its release as well as the Takedown mini-series by EA to help advertise the car.

This resulted in players having the chance to drive the car in-game before it hit the streets.

Games

Need for Speed: Undercover

The 370Z appears in Need for Speed: Undercover as a tier 3 car, which is unlocked upon completing the Job event "Nick of Time". It costs $92,500. It is the first car that the player gets to drive - in the opening sequence where they have to escape from the TCBPD.

The Nissan 370Z is a well performing tier 3 vehicle. It can reach a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h) in its stock form.

It appears in the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo Wii releases as a multiplayer only car with a price tag of $49,000.

Need for Speed: Shift

The Nissan 370Z appears in Need for Speed: Shift as a tier 2 with a 5.10 car rating and price tag of $55,000. It is purchasable in the car dealership upon the player collecting thirty stars. The car can be Works converted in both titles

Its main strengths are acceleration and top speed. Similar to the Nissan 350Z, it may fishtail in corners although it is not difficult to control.

Need for Speed: Nitro

The Nissan 370Z appears in Need for Speed: Nitro as a class B Tuner. It is rated 2 in both speed and handling, 3 in both acceleration and strength, and 4 in drifting.

Zarinah, the top racer in Singapore, drives a 370Z in all the location's Silver Cup race events except for the Drift Challenge, Time Attack, and Speed Trap events. In addition, Zarinah's 370Z can also be seen in her profile video, albeit without a custom body kit, custom hood, roof scoop and spoiler.

Zarinah

Zarinah's 370Z can be unlocked as a collectable car for use in both Arcade Mode and Career Mode, once all stars are obtained in all Singapore Silver Cup events.

Need for Speed: World

The Nissan 370Z was made available in Need for Speed: World on June 28, 2010 during the sixth closed beta session as a tier 2 car. Since August 22, 2012, it has been featured as a C class car.

The 370Z previously had a slightly lower top speed and slower acceleration compared to the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, but handled better. However, it also had a poor nitrous boost.

On July 17, 2012, the Nissan 370Z underwent several performance improvements. Its standard top speed was raised to 157 mph (253 km/h). Even though its acceleration enhancement was minimal and remains less powerful than other C class Nissans like the 350Z, its handling was improved. The 370Z is faster in corners than the Nissan Silvia (S15) because of more precise steering.

It is an average car overall with handling being its best trait. Upgrades might be useful to make it more competitive in races. The 370Z is also a mediocre performer in pursuits.
