2009 BMW Z4 vs. 2009 Nissan 370Z

Here it is – the war of the ‘Zs.’ This past weekend during episode 6 of Top Gear season 13, Jeremy Clarkson pinned the new 2009 Nissan 370Z (which we’re driving around right now) against the new 2010 BMW Z4.


2009 BMW Z4 sDrive35i:  Power comes from a 3.0L twin-turbo inline-6 engine that makes a total of 306-hp. 0 to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds when mated to a manual transmission and 5 seconds flat when mated to the new 7-speed dual-clutch automatic with paddle shifters.
2009 Nissan 370Z: Power comes from a 3.7L VQ37VHR engine making 332-hp. Mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox that will allow for a 0 to 60 mph time in the low 4.7 seconds.
