The 2023 Nissan Z – Twin-Turbo V6, 400 HP, Manual Gearbox
The Nissan Z comes in two flavors: Sport and Performance. The base Sport model with 18-inch wheels and the Performance trim with 19-inch rims.
Nissan offers nine exterior color options at launch. Buyers can select from six two tone paints each with a contrasting black roof. Brilliant Silver, Boulder Gray, Seiran Blue, Ikazuchi Yellow, Passion Red, and Everest White. Nissan offers three single tone paint options, Black Diamond, Gun Metallic, and Rosewood Metallic.
The base 18-inch wheel wears Yokohama Advan Sport tires measuring in at 248/45 all around, while the 19-inch wheel on the Performance model features Bridgestone Potenza S007 tires at 255/40 front and 275/35 rear. The increase in grip improves cornering Gs by up to 13 percent.
For the performance, a twin turbocharged 3.0 liter V6 powers the new Z and is good for a mighty 400 horsepower and 475 newton meters of torque sent exclusively to the rear wheels.
The Proto Spec, features a few unique elements on the exterior to tie it visually to the concept like yellow colored brake calipers and bronze 19-inch RAYS wheels while the cabin dons a Proto Spec leather with yellow accents and suede inserts.
Nissan has not announced things like pricing or availability.
