"The open-air model of the Z with a convenient electric soft top."

The Nissan Fairlady Z/Roadster was sold as the 350Z/Roadster outside Japan.

The 2001 Detroit Motor Show saw the rebirth of Nissan's Z sports car after a five year hiatus. Under the leadership of company president Carlos Ghosn, it was totally recreated, coming with a price tag under $30,000.

The Z33 Fairlady Z was a 2-seater that utilized Nissan's new FM platform that provided the foundation for the V35 Skyline sedan (Infiniti G35). Under the hood was the company's trusted VQ35DE, also the same as the Skyline. It was a 3.5-liter DOHC V6, and in the Z's case, produced 276 HP and 267.6 lb-ft of torque. The transmission of choice was the 6-speed manual.

Sharing components with the Skyline worked in favor for the Z because it brought overall cost down. In Japan, there were a number of trim levels offered: The base model, which came with Brembo brakes, the S version that sported 18-in. wheels, the T version with a 5-speed automatic, and the ST, which presented the most luxurious version of the group.

The following year saw the introduction of a convertible version. At the same time, the coupe underbody was upgraded and ran even smoother. Things got more interesting with the 35th anniversary model that upped the V6's power to 296 HP. In collaboration with Gran Turismo 4, a limited edition model also appeared on the scene in Europe.
