Nissan's new, lighter 2009 370Z gets a 26-horsepower boost over the outgoing model.

We've got some numbers to go with the shots Nissan recently provided of the 2009 370Z, set to debut at the Los Angels Auto Show later this month. According to the LA Auto Show's website, the redesigned Z's new DOHC 3.7 liter V6 boosts power by 26 horses over the outgoing model, to 332. A Variable Valve Event and Lift Control is part of the new drivetrain, as is a choice of seven-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmissions. The 370Z's new manual transmission also features synchronized downshift rev matching programming.

Public days for the Los Angeles Auto Show start November 21.
