The "Z" has a long heritage and a devoted following that spans decades. Starting at a base price of about $33,000 the Nissan 370Z provides 332-horsepower from a 3.7-liter V-6. This engine allows the Z to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour (0 to 96.6 kilometers per hour) in just 5.2 seconds. Not bad for naturally aspirated engine. But what's maybe even more impressive about the 370Z is that it still manages to squeeze out mileage of 19 miles per gallon (8.1 kilometers per liter) in the city and 26 miles per gallon (11.1 kilometers per liter) on the highway. It's not the most fuel-efficient sports car, but it's nothing to sneeze at either.
