In-game descriptionEdit

"Enlarging displacement while shortening the wheelbase; the 6th generation Z focuses on driving."

When the sixth-generation Fairlady Z, the Z34 was introduced in December 2008, most people assumed that the car would be just a mildly updated version of the Z33 that revived the Z car in January 2002. The 370Z, as we knew it, appeared relatively the same; however, upon closer inspection, it became evident that this was an all-new car.

Built atop the E platform that also serves as the foundation of the Infiniti "Skyline" G37, the new Z featured an aluminum hood, door and rear hatch that kept the car's curb weight about the same as the previous vehicle (around 1500 kg). The new Z was nimble, thanks to a shorter 3.9 inches wheelbase and retuned suspension system that consisted of a double-wishbone setup in front and multilink at rear.

Under the hood was a more powerful engine, the VQ37VHR with VVEL. VVEL was a mechanism that varies the operating angle and lift of the valves for improved power and lower emissions. With 200 cc more displacement, the new V-6 pumped out 331 HP/7000 rpm and 269.0 ft-lb of torque that peaked at 5200. The engine came mated to either a quick-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission, or a revolutionary 6-speed manual gearbox equipped with the world's first synchro rev control mechanism. This system automatically adjusted engine rpm when downshifting, eliminating the need to heel and toe.

Thus the Z34 became a true enthusiast sports car that even novices could drive effectively.
