Those hankering for both Nissan’s new 370Z and some fun in the sun may want to save for the new 2010 370Z Roadster. Nissan announced today that pricing for the new Z ragtop will start at $37,960, including destination.
That price will put you right into a base 370Z Roadster, complete with the 332-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 and a six-speed manual transmission. Roadsters equipped with the seven-speed automatic sticker for $38,990. Black cherry exterior paint is the only option offered on the base car, and will set buyers back $500.
Those looking for extra content will be forced to upgrade to the 370Z Roadster Touring, which starts at $41,960 ($42,540 for an automatic-equipped car). Touring models add things like a Bose audio system, XM satellite radio, Bluetooth, and Nissan’s famous “net” seats. Buyers can also add a $1850 navigation system, the $2800 sport package (which adds the rev-matching feature on manual-transmission Zs), or a Bordeaux top–it’s free of charge, but only offered with the Touring’s optional wine-colored interior.
If there’s one thing the 370Z Roadster is missing, it’s the height of summer–the ragtop Zs are expected to arrive in dealers nationwide in September.
