The 7th generation that takes inspiration from the Z model which has been around for more than 50 years.


Nissan Z is finally present for the first time in the United States market. This seventh-generation sports car brings the same spirit as the previous generation, which is present for more than 50 years by offering an exciting driving experience.

The Nissan Z is said to adopt a modern sports car approach with an attractive design, advanced technology, and the ability to explore open roads for future generations and Z fans.

“Simply put, our goal is to make this the best Z yet, period. With each generation, we raise the bar, pushing the limits of Z and continuing to tap into the human instinct for that next thrilling journey,” said Hiroshi Tamura, chief product specialist of the new Z. “More than just powerful and agile, the the all-new Z is designed to be one with the driver, for the car to be a 'dance partner' for their on-road adventures.”

The All-New Z uses the VR30DDTT 3.0L V6 Twin Turbo engine. This engine is capable of producing 400 hp and 475 Nm of maximum torque. There are two transmission options, a six-speed manual and a 9-speed automatic.

When delivering predictable, responsive handling, the engineering team takes a multi-prong approach, especially for high-speed driving and cornering. Enhanced body rigidity, an electronic power steering with rack assist and a solid mechanical feel, and wider front tires help increase cornering performance up to 13 percent.

Both front and rear dampers use a new monotube shock absorber design with a larger diameter than the outgoing 370Z, resulting in approximately 20 percent reduction in dampening force to help minimize impact shock over uneven surfaces, enhance road-following performance, and improved handling stability. The front double-wishbone aluminum suspension features new geometry, including caster angle, which has been increased, aiding in straight-line stability.

Two drive modes are offered with the automatic transmission, standard, and sport. Standard mode is best suited for commuting and long highway drives for a pleasant, stress-free drive. Sport mode unlocks the Z's performance potential, offering faster acceleration control, a sports-mode steering profile, active sound enhancement, and sports-mode vehicle dynamic control settings best matched to take on a spirited run through a winding road. Z Performance grade models utilize a mechanical clutch-type limited-slip differential.

Talking about the exterior design, the Z takes inspiration from sports car models with rear-wheel drive. The long front with a low figure is inspired by the first generation Z model. The modern impression comes from the headlamp and LED combination stop lamp inspired by the Fairlady 240ZG in the 70s.

The All-New Z is available in three monotone exterior colors and six two-tone exterior colors, including two new colors, Seiran Blue and Ikazuchi Yellow, with a Super Black roof.

Designed to fit the driver and passenger like a glove, the cabin seamlessly blends modern technology with vintage Z touches. The center stack takes inspiration from previous generations, with three analog pod gauges on the instrument panel, an 8.0-inch touchscreen audio display in the center, and climate control switches near the shifter.

The interior design team also sought advice from professional motorsports legends, such as Nissan Super GT500 driver Tsugio Matsuda, to give the Z an ideal sports car cabin for various driving situations. This can be seen in the instrumentation, with all vital information found in the 12.3-inch customizable digital meter display and arranged to help the driver grasp it at a glance, such as a redline shift point at the 12 o'clock position. The 12.3-inch TFT meter display is all-new with three display modes to suit driver preference.

The new Z's center stack uses a three-zone approach, placing three analog pod gauges on the instrument panel (boost, turbo speed, volt) within the driver's eyesight. Both the manual and automatic shift levers are new, custom-engineered for optimized grip and comfort.

Three interior color environments are available – Graphite, Red, and Blue. The limited-edition Proto Spec features yellow accents throughout the cabin, including stitching on the instrument panel. The seats feature layered seat material to create depth and a gradation effect.

A limited-edition Nissan Z Proto Spec is also offered, featuring exclusive yellow-colored brake calipers with the Z logo, bronze-colored aluminum-alloy wheels, exclusive leather-appointed seats with yellow accents, and yellow interior stitching throughout. Production of the Nissan Z Proto Spec is limited to 240 units.
