The Nissan 350Z is the fifth iteration of Nissan's Z series sports cars and succeeded the 300ZX in 2002 for the 2003 model year.

For this generation, Nissan replaced the VG engine lineup of the 300ZX with a single 3.5 litre VQ35DE V6 engine. The styling of the 350Z was influenced by the Datsun 240Z.

In September 2005, the 350Z received a minor facelift.

Need for Speed: Underground

The 350Z makes its first appearance in Need for Speed: Underground. It is unlocked upon completing Underground Mode event 75.

A variant with a promotional Rob Zombie paint job is unlocked upon collecting 1,110,500 style points. In the last event of Underground Mode, the player must race against Melissa in her 350Z which can be unlocked for Quick Race upon collecting 2,500,000 style points.

Need for Speed: Underground 2

The 350Z appears in Need for Speed: Underground 2 after Rachel lends her modified 350Z to the player for a short time at the beginning of the game. The stock version of the car is unlocked upon winning URL race 9 during stage 4 of the career mode.

The 350Z is featured with quick acceleration and a high top speed but also prone to fishtailing under hard cornering. With maxed out performance, the 350Z is one of the few cars in the game that are capable of going faster than 220 mph (354 km/h).

Need for Speed: Most Wanted

Need for Speed: Carbon

The 350Z appears in Need for Speed: Carbon as a tier 3 Tuner class car. It is purchasable for $70,000 and unlocked differently in the game:

  • Exotic Career - Win the Circuit Race in Starlight Strip.
  • Muscle Career - Win the Checkpoint event of the Canmor Downs territory in Silverton.
  • Tuner Career - Take over the Diamond Hills territory.

The 350Z is the cheapest Tier 3 car in the game, besides the Infiniti G35. Contrary to previous game appearances, the 350Z is lacking in straight-line performance although its handling has been improved.

Neville will drive a Nissan 350Z if the player chooses the Mazda RX-8 as their starter car and purchases any Tier 3 vehicle.

A modified 350Z must be driven in the gold tier canyon race event of the challenge series.

Need for Speed: ProStreet

The 350Z appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a Tier 2 car with a price tag of $39,000. It is already playable in an early raceday of the game - Battle Machine Challenge: Texas. Upon completing this event, the player can pick the 350Z or a Golf GTI as a reward.

The 350Z is capable of outperforming most cars during the earlier portion of the career mode. It is featured with strong acceleration and a fairly high top speed. However, these traits come at the cost of handling, as its rear can quickly become loose in corners.

Need for Speed: World

The 350Z was made available in Need for Speed: World on March 5, 2010 during the first closed beta session as a tier 2 car. Since August 22, 2012, it had been featured as a D class car.

Most notable trait of it is its acceleration and its decent nitrous speed boost. There are some handling issues because of it heavy steering before May 1, 2012, which was greatly improved with more reactive steering. Understeer at high speed is still perceptible but occurs less frequently than before.

It is best used in high-speed tracks, where its acceleration can be used effectively.
