Spy Shots: 2010 Nissan 370Z, baby GT-R heads to Nurburgring

Spies recently caught the 2010 Nissan 370Z on its way to the Nurburgring for some high-speed testing. The car is starting to be called the ‘baby GT-R’ and you’re probably wondering if it will live up to such an honorary nickname.

Well, let’s take a look. The Nissan 370Z will be a mashup between the GT-R and the 350Z. Power will come from a 3.7L V6 that produces 330-hp – the same engine powers the Infiniti G37. All that power will be transferred to the road via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission from the GT-R. CAR says that the new upmarket coupe will ride on a rear-wheel-drive architecture. Sounds pretty good to us, but let’s wait to see some Nurburgring and 0 to 62 mph times.

We’ll get to see the new 2010 Nissan 370Z at the 2008 LA Auto Show next month. So stay tuned for more on this so-called ‘baby GT-R.’
