The latest in a long line of awesomeness: Nissan's 370Z

I've had a soft spot for the Nissan Z ever since I began learning to drive a stick in a orange 240Z. My dad also had a 300Z that he tricked out over time, and that I got to drive from Grenoble, France to Monaco for the F1 race and back. Needless to say it was amazing and a driving experience which has yet to be rivaled. Here's a shot of it basking in the Monagasque harbour.

The current 350Z was a fitting comeback to a storied line of cars and remains a class leader late into its model life. Nissan has been in the news a lot recently with their launch of the GTR supercar and it looks like they'll remain there with a car that is a lot more relevant to all of us, the 370Z. I've seen a few spy shots here and there, but today Autoblog published three official shots of what the car will really look like. I think you'll agree that they've got a winner on their hands. Far more of a classic beautiful sports car look than its big brother GTR which looks a bit like a stealth fighter transformer.
