Nissan revealed the production-ready version of the Z performance coupe late last year, and the Japanese manufacturer has now finally revealed the pricing for the 370Z successor. The Nissan Z carries a price tag of $39,990 for the entry-level Sport trim, along with a $1,025 destination and handling fees over and above. At this price point, the 2023 Nissan Z undercuts the entry-level six-cylinder variant of its biggest rival, i.e Toyota Supra by around $12,000. For reference, pricing for the turbocharged straight-six Supra variants starts from about $53,000 including shipping. Moreover, the Performance model of the new Nissan Z starts at $51,015, and that extra 10 grand gets you bigger wheels with stickier tires, a limited-slip differential, better brakes and more. There's also an exclusive top-of-the-line Proto Spec variant that costs $54,015. The Proto Spec version is limited to just 240 units - all reserved for the United States.
The range-topping Proto Spec version gets a unique plaque to remind you of the exclusivity, and rides on 19-inch wheels with a bronze finish coupled with yellow brake calipers. Also, the Z Proto Spec features a special Ikazuchi Yellow paint scheme, along with matching yellow accents on the inside. The equipment on offer with the Z Performance includes a 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android auto, and NissanConnect Services with Wi-Fi hotspot, an 8-speaker Bose Audio system with Active Noise Cancellation and Active Sound Enhancement, 4-way power leather front seats with manual lifter, lumbar and thigh support, heated seats, Intelligent Cruise Control, auto climate control, auto-dimming IRVM, RearView Monitor, two 12-volt power points, two USB points (Type-A and Type-C), and front and rear sonar sensors.
All models include a range of standard driver assistance and safety technologies, including Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, High Beam Assist and Intelligent Forward Collision Warning. Nissan is offering the Z in three exterior colour options - Black, Red and Blue. Powering the 2023 Nissan Z is a 3.0-litre V6 twin turbo engine that puts out 400 horses at 6,400 rpm, along with 475 Nm of torque, delivered between 1,600 to 5,200 rpm. As compared to the 370Z that the new Z replaces, there is an increase of 68 horsepower, while there's also a 30% bump in torque - resulting in a 15% improvement in 0 to 60 mph acceleration, claims Nissan. The transmission options on the rear-wheel drive coupe include a 6-speed MT with advanced launch assist control system and rev-matching function on the Performance models, along with a 9-speed AT with the same aluminium paddle shifters as found on the GT-R.
