The Nissan 350Z is a sports car manufactured by the Japanese marque Nissan. Launched in 2002, the 350Z was the successor to the legendary Nissan 300ZX and quickly became one of the most demanded sports cars worldwide. In 2008, this model would be replaced by the Nissan 370Z, an updated model that followed the same philosophy as this one. In Japan, this model was marketed as Nissan Fairlady Z (Z33).

Nissan’s 350Z is a sports car built on the Nissan FM platform. It shares some elements with Infiniti vehicles. It was sold in coupe and roadster bodywork. It had a longitudinal front mid-engine and rear-wheel drive. In terms of engines, all versions of the 350Z were powered by 3.5-liter V6 gasoline/petrol engines. This model also had several performance variants under the NISMO sports brand, such as the NISMO R-Tune or NISMO S-Tune GT.

This vehicle had only one generation. It competed with rivals such as the Mercedes-Benz SLK, the BMW Z4, the Mazda RX-8, the Alfa Romeo Brera, the Audi TT or the Honda S2000 among many others.
