While the much-awaited seventh generation 2023 Nissan Z was unveiled some time back, its pricing details were kept close to the chest by Nissan amidst intense speculation. The new Z heralds the return of a back to basics sports car armed with a snappy 6-speed manual with rev-matching and a sonorous 400 bhp twin-turbo V6 motor. Surprisingly, prices have been kept competitive with Nissan not succumbing to market demand as the starting price comes in at a reasonable $73,300. That does seem like a bonafide bargain with the Toyota Supra starting from $84,536.
Enthusiasts are also keen to lap up the new Nissan sports car with the car already sold out for some time before even the first shipment of cars arrives here. You can spec the Z with either a 6-speed manual or a 9-speed automatic as a no-cost option while the limited-edition Proto Spec comes as a tribute to its predecessors being dipped in yellow along with bronze-coloured wheels. Australia will not get the base spec Z and instead we will get the better equipped ‘Performance’ version which comes standard with goodies like a limited-slip differential, a 9.0-inch screen and an eight-speaker Bose sound system along with a set of meatier tyres wrapped around 19-inch wheels.
Interestingly, the 6-speed manual gets the unanimous vote of being the transmission of choice while eventually, the automatic version will rack up orders when the Z is sold in other global markets. The 2023 Z looks into its past for styling inspiration while the iconic 350Z look has been more or less preserved in terms of the front face of the car. More than anything, the interior has been overhauled along with all of the modern amenities and technology while electric steering makes its appearance for the first time. As things stand, Nissan has disrupted the sports car market with keener pricing over its Japanese and German rivals.
