2009 Nissan 370Z Caught With Its Hood Open, Trunk Empty We've already seen most of the Nissan 370Z (even dissecting the design ), set to debut at the LA Auto Show next week. Now these photos from GTR-World show us more of a fuller sense of what the engine bay and trunk portal will look like. As you'd imagine, the 3.7-liter VQ37VHR V6 is there in all its normally-aspirated glory, crossed by a large tower bar. Moving to the opposite end of the vehicle you'll notice the 2009 Nissan 370Z features a decently-sized pass-through storage area, at least for this class. What else do we know about the new Z-Car?

Thanks to a leaky auto show website we now know the 370Z will be capable of 332 hp, an increase of 26 hp from the 3.5-liter VQ V6. We also know the Nismo S-Tune will bring upgrades tot he 370Z shortly after its release. It's worth noting, again, all of this has happened before the car has been released. [GTR-World]
