Nissan prices its sports car in the United States

The Yokohama is a refurbished sports car among the firm’s ranks. Today we will know about it, its design, its features and specifications.

There is a place for sports cars in the diverse world of Nissan. Fans will remember the famous Sylvia, which is no longer on the production line. The truth is that Nissan’s sports offer in the United States is focused on two models: the GT-R and the Z.

Today we are interested in knowing about the Z, a car that is part of a rich lineage. Especially in Japan where the Z series has a full identity. Z sports cars have existed in the automotive market since at least 1969 in Japan. Z cars are characterized by youthful-looking, unstructured cars, rear-wheel drive and fast, somewhat aggressive handling with typical Japanese sports. Taste.

The generation that calls upon us today is its seventh, and has been introduced in the market in 2022 with an effective arrival in the current year 2023. As always at Nissan, there is a balance that cannot be overlooked: market price / quality. The Yokohama factory wants its Z to be the sports car inside everything accessible, not just a poster in a room. The prestigious NISMO division has also had a hand in the development of this project.

“Style. Avant-garde.”, says Nissan of its Z 2023. As we said earlier, we are in front of a sports coupe. It already features a body that deserves to be respected: two rows of seats, two doors, lowered suspension, aerodynamic design lines. Certainly, the Nissan Z embodies all these qualities.

It is a car that has received a delicate restyling as compared to the preceding generation. At first glance, the car exudes agility and youth in its design. Nissan has given the Z’s side silhouette a link to this model’s heritage, as it is reminiscent of the first Z ever produced.

Its 19° wheels, 255/40 tires on the front axle and 285/35 tires on the rear axle give it more personality. In return, to pay respect to the earlier Nissan S30 and Z32, the firm has introduced a special body color in Metallic Yellow Embossed. A success, the yellow color suits the Z in its 2023 variant.

On the inside, the Z in its 2023 version has mutated a lot as compared to the previous generation. Especially in its technical setup, as it has two LED screens that attract attention and form a central part of the dashboard design. “Technology that moves at the speed of a Nissan Z,” warns Yokohama House.

The first is in the center and is dedicated to the vehicle’s multimedia infotainment. Its size is 12.5 inches. The second screen is on the dashboard of the driving position. It’s hard to see: A sports car without physical needles loses some of its excitement. In the new Z, the entire dash is a 12.3-inch screen.

In aesthetic decisions, Nissan has opted for a two-tone cabin to match the exterior paint colour. It is a sober interior with slight sporty winks. A hit from the Yokohama firm, the Z maintains a classic sports essence: tradition dictates that the excitement of sports cars is in the engine and body design, with restraint inside. Think of all the generations of the Porsche 911 or the BMW M division.

The detail to highlight are the three analog markers centered along the top of the dashboard. A breakthrough from Nissan, as it gives it an analog touch that is needed to balance out so many screens. While this is not sufficient information, it is “important” that they are there.

This Japanese sports car has a longitudinal front engine, 3.0 litre, turbo, 6 cylinders in V layout and 24 direct injection valves. There are two transmission options: a six-speed manual, a nine-speed automatic.

It has rear traction essentially by a sports manual. The Nissan Z, Edition 2023, is capable of developing 405 CV at 6,400 rpm, while its maximum torque is 475 Nm between 1,600 and 5,600 rpm. This car achieves a speed of 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 4.5 seconds.

As we can see, we are in front of a modern and traditional sports car at the same time, a complex affair to be carried out in a harmonious way. The Nissan Z is touted as the younger brother of the GT-R. Although I disagree with placing him under the said wing.

The entire Z series, and this model in particular that calls out to us today, has a strong and marked identity. Placing it “under the wing” of the GT-R would detract from the Z. It will only be its smaller brother as it is more compact and less bulky, but the Z is looking to target another public and another segment within sport cars.

Sure, the Nissan Z is positioned as a versatile, “cool” car, with over 400 horsepower and a market price that is more than commensurate. The latter is a highlight of Nissan in general and this sports car in particular: market values ​​mean that getting this urban sports car doesn’t become a utopia.

Market value

According to official sources from Nissan USA, there are three versions of the Z:

-Z Sport, US$ 40,990

-Z Performance, US$52,085

-Z Proto spec, US$55,085
