Yesterday, a single press photo of the new 2010 Nissan 370Z Roadster hit the web, preceding its live scheduled unveiling at the 2009 New York Auto Show by a mere 24 hours and causing quite a stir within the Nissan fanboy circuit. Today, the new drop-top 370Z has officially broken cover, giving us a full uncensored view of the next-gen Z series convertible.

Equipped with an electronically operated soft-top that allows it to completely undress in about 20 seconds, the 370Z Roadster is a noticeably sportier, lighter version of the 370Z coupe. Equipped with an aluminum hood, door panels, and trunk lid for carbon fiber-esque weight reduction, the 370Z Roadster also receives significant structural reinforcement in both the side sills and A pillars to ensure the 370Z’s noted performance is smoothly translated into the topless model. Available in two trim levels, Roadster and Roadster Touring, both models come standard with a 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine capable of putting out 332-horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 270 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm. Transmission options include either a 7-speed automatic or 6-speed manual, the latter which comes equipped with Nissan’s famed Synchro RevMatch shifting technology. Both gearboxes provide a 1mpg fuel economy improvement over the previous-gen 350Z and feature an EPA estimate of 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway.

Inside, the 2010 Nissan 370Z is loaded with enough accessories to rival its Tier 1 brethren, the Infiniti G37, including heated leather seats, Bluetooth, XM satellite radio, and Nissan’s extensive navigation package, replete with a 9.3GB Music Box Hard Drive and USB connectivity.
