Nissan has unveiled the new Roadster version of the car at this week’s New York Auto Show. The roadster sticks with the folding soft top to save weight and to distinguish it from the Infiniti G37 convertible. Opening or closing it takes approximately 20 seconds start-to-finish and is controlled by either a center console-mounted switch or by a button located on the doors. The new 370Z is the first Z roadster to offer heating and cooling ventilated seats. Under the hood will be the same 3.7L VQ37VHR V6 as the Coupe, rated at 332hp (247kW) and 270lb-ft (366Nm) of torque. Gearbox options will include a six-speed manual with the new “SynchroRev Match” function, as well as a seven-speed automatic with paddle shifters. The roadster is schedules to arrive later in the year and will br prices a little over $30k.
