First Drive: 2010 Nissan 370Z Roadster

Jeffrey Jablansky

Let's go back to that interior, especially the metal pieces and how well they are crafted. I think Nissan hired a machinist to concoct the perfectly, whimsically carved and molded bits of satiny aluminum. I'm talking about the small knurled rectangles on the steering wheel that operate cruise control. The trim ring around the pushbutton starter. The Z in the center of the steering wheel. The shift paddle clefs. The compound surfacing of the shift lever trim plate and the trim plates around the speedometer and the other gauges in the instrument binnacle. It's all entrancing and exquisitely fitted. This is an interior on Audi's plane of perfection, but funkier.
