It's a travesty that the GT-R isn't in the grand final... oh well. GT-R it is.

Nissan deserves props for making the 350Z's successor smaller...that takes balls in this day and age.
Zenix13
i like the 370z alot. the others are good but something about the new Z car does it for me.
Aircooled
Never been a fan of the Z-series. Despite whether the human controls the car or the car itself does, the GT-R is a pretty cool car.

I actually wanted to vote for the A6 as my dad has a 4.2 and the car is so damn nice, but i didn't know it was $60k msrp. No thanks. 370Z it is
