The rear-wheel-drive Nissan 370Z offers a rawer driving experience than the likes of BMW's Z4 or Audi's TT, yet its powerful engine and huge grip mean it's a very exciting car to drive. Lots of standard equipment and plenty of power make it a tempting choice. There are some compromises – including limited boot space and high fuel consumption – but these are worth it for the enjoyment on offer.

The 370Z Roadster delivers all the appeal of the coupé and adds the excitement of an open top. Its 3.7-litre V6 sounds even better when it's not muted by a metal roof, and Nissan's efforts to retain the coupé's rigidity and sharp handling have been successful. Arguably, it's the more appealing version thanks to the wind in the hair experience, while the Roadster loses little in practicality over its 370Z Coupé sister.
