The 400zclub.com forum has published the characteristics of the new sports car Nissan Z: the novelty is driven by a V6 engine with a capacity of 400 horsepower, familiar from the Infiniti Q60. The starting price will be $ 34,995. If this information is confirmed, the Nissan Z will be more powerful and at the same time cheaper than its main competitor, the Toyota Supra.
In the base, the new sports car of the Z line will be equipped with a three-liter V6 engine with twin turbocharging (400 forces) in combination with a manual transmission from the previous generation Nissan 370Z. A modification with the same engine and automatic 9G-Tronic from Mercedes-Benz will also be available. Toyota Supra, in turn, is equipped with a 355-horsepower 3.0-liter engine and costs $ 50,990 in the US.
The basic equipment of the Nissan Z will include a 12.3-inch virtual instrument panel and a multimedia system with support for Android Auto and CarPlay.
For an additional five thousand dollars, they will offer one of several packages, for example, with reinforced stabilizers and Brembo brakes, or with leather interior trim, seats with ventilation function and an extended set of electronic assistants. A sports version of the Nismo is expected to appear later, but no details have yet been given.
Previously, photos of an un-camouflaged serial Nissan Z, which were being prepared for transportation, were leaked to the Internet. The model was expected to appear on the market under the 400Z index, however, most likely, the coupe will be called simply Nissan Z.
