This is it, more or less the last of a dying breed – the naturally aspirated, rear wheel drive, manual transmission sports car for well under a million rand. What’s more is it comes with a barrel chested V6 engine featuring 245kW and 363Nm, a limited slip differential and so much more. But more than that, and in part because it’s in fact an eight year old profile on our road, it represents a 45 year old legacy that is synonymous with Japan’s fighting spirit. We salute you, 370Z. BONUS: we mention Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift naturally as well as Wangan Midnight and touch on the Z’s motorsport prowess in Le Mans and the sport of drifting. Really, just watch it already.
Special thanks to Hazendal Estate for letting us use their gorgeous venue. I come here often to fall off my mountain bike and have a breakfast. You can follow them here: www.facebook.com/hazendalwine
