This means that the base 2012 Nissan 370Z Coupe equipped with a manual transmission lists from a very reasonable $31,450.
The Roadster, in base trim, is equipped with a seven-speed automatic transmission and is priced from $39,500, while the range-topping Nismo model, which only comes with a manual, lists at $40,830.
There are no major changes for the 2012 model year, which means most models are still equipped with Nissan’s venerable 3.7-liter V-6 rated at 332 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. The Nismo model, of course, gets a slightly uprated version packing 350 horsepower and 276 pound-feet of torque.
One difference for 2012 is the addition of an oil cooler as standard equipment on the full 370Z range.
Available goodies include a hard-drive based navigation system with seven-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth, USB, and iPod connectivity, XM NavTraffic with Real-Time Traffic Information and XM NavWeather, a backup camera, and Nissan’s Intelligent Key keyless entry and ignition system.
The 2012 Nissan 370Z range is on sale now. Note, an identical 2011 model is pictured.
