The NISSAN 370Z (known as the Fairlady Z in Japan) is a FMR (Front-Mid engine and Rear wheel drive) style sports car released in 2008 available in Coupé or Roadster variants. The 370Z is the sixth-generation car in NISSAN's Z line, the predecessor being the 350Z. The 370Z is effectively completely different to the 350z - nearly all the components have had some sort of redesign. It is powered by a new VQ37 VHR 3.7L DOHC V6 which produces 332 bhp (partly down to NISSAN's valve timing system). Gearbox options include a new 7-speed semi-automatic paddle shifted transmission or a 6-speed manual which features Synchro-Rev Match (a system designed to match the engine speed to the wheel speed on gearing down to ensure the smoothest shift possible).
So, I finally finished it, the body took two weeks, the front alone was one of those. Finally my NISSAN 370z is complete. I took a lot more care with this than I did on my Viper ACR, and I think it shows in the detail. My biggest criticism is that the front more resembles a NISSAN GTR instead.
The hood can be opened and propped up with the little axle I attached, which folds up underneath the hood
The 3.7L 332bhp V6, still connected to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual push-rod gearbox
A little detail, that side window that 370z's have
Very convenient boot space
A look at the interior from the drivers side, not much change from the chassis
All doors open
Underside, the full size image will give you a better look
Another detail, the spoiler I think I got the shape just right
The interior from the back, in gear 1 at the moment

Please rate & comment, I know I can do more! Any suggestions for future creations?

That's awesome! I love the shape, it's perfect! Excellent work with all the functions. Great work. I think you should try building a Corvette next time, or maybe even a Nissan GTR
I had planned both of those but I think the gtr is too similar to this, and I really wanted to work on a rear engined car, i'm currently attempting an r.c. PORSCHE Carrera GT, then I might try a Corvette, maybe in yellow
Thanks for all the positive comments, glad you all liked it!
Wow. This turned out great. Very very impressed with all the technical functions. The overall Shape is great particularly the rear. Really like the doors too. I will be attempting another large technic moc soon - maybe a Formula 1 car. Excellent moc ben.
