The all-new 2023 Nissan sports car maintains what fans saw from the Z Proto, and was unveiled at Brooklyn’s Duggal Greenhouse — just five miles away from where the original 1970 Datsun 240Z made its world debut in 1969.
Spec-wise, the new Z sees 400 horsepower via a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, a six-speed (or a nine-speed automatic) transmission with an EXEDY sports clutch, and updates in the interior like a race-inspired 12.3-inch display, sports seats, and a BOSE audio system. Merging the past with the present, the body shape harnesses the Z’s iconic long hood and low rear stance.
Ashwani Gupta, representative executive officer and chief operating officer, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. comments, “The Z has always been an accessible sports car – always placed at the intersection of aspiration and attainability – of dreams and reality. This latest iteration is now ready to thrill Z enthusiasts, and create a whole new generation of Z fans as well when it comes to market here in the U.S. early next year.”
The launch will also see a “Proto Spec” version that’s limited to just 240 examples.
