Nissan has released pictures of the new 370Z coupe ahead of its public debut at the LA motor show in California next month.

The new 370Z has a lot in common with the G37 Coupe that also arrives next year from Nissan's upmarket Infiniti brand.

It is expected to use the same 3.7-litre V6 engine that's in the Infiniti. That should see around 314bhp for the 370Z and an improvement in the 0-60mph time of 5.5sec posted by the 350Z.

Based on the same platform as the G37, the 370Z will get the option of the same seven-speed automatic and a six-speed manual.

Unlike the Infiniti, however, the new Nissan won't be a 2+2 coupe, but will stick with a two-seater layout. It goes on sale early next year for an estimated 28,000.

A roadster version of the car, perhaps with a metal roof such as the one recently shown on the newly unveiled G37 Convertible, should arrive around a year after the coupe.
