350Z 2007 refresh - bonnet bulge, and the VQ35HR

Recommended Posts





The hood's been modified to accommodate the new VQ35HR, lifted from the new G35. Not sure yet if I like the look of it, but if it's functional, whatcha gonna do? Remember that the S30Z had a bonnet bulge, so this is almost a homage to the classic Z ;)


The 2007 Nissan Lineup -


350Z Coupe and 350Z Roadster


The 2007 Nissan 350Z is scheduled to go on sale in January 2007. The changes for the new model year will include new exterior colors, a new gray colored convertible top (Roadster models), Active Head Restraints and performance enhancements including a new VQ35HR engine.


The 2007 350Z will again be available in Coupe and Roadster body styles and in an array of models ? five for the Coupe, including a Grand Touring model, and three for the Roadster (including the Grand Touring automatic transmission version).

yeah its kinda bmw'ish, i think its to wide, but atleast it's there for a purpose i guess, the orginal 350z hood looks more 240z to me, but more ugly too.


the hood on the z4 m is made by a rapid prototype mould similar to those nail things you put your hand in and it leaves the impression in it, pretty interesting stuff, bmw seem to b ahead of other companies regarding their moulds and precision. i heard chris bangle speak and he said that if the door moulds for the 5 series come together .01mm wrongly a huge dent line is formed, so i think it will be awhile before cheaper companies start copying lol


anyways thought i'd post a photoshop i did to waste time of a 350z with 240z proportions
