The New Nissan Z Is A Better Deal Than A Supra GR

Author: |

Nissan has confirmed Australian pricing for the Nissan Z, which will be available in dealerships in mid-2022 for AU$73,300 (about US$51,200 at current currency rates).

There will also be a limited-edition Z Proto Spec with additional features available for AU$80,700 during the launch period.

The good news for Nissan fans is that the new Z is less expensive than Nissan's biggest competition, the Toyota Supra GR, in practically every market.

In Australia, the base Nissan Z, which comes with either a manual or an automatic transmission, costs AU$14,003 less than the Toyota competitor, which starts at AU$87,303.

The new Nissan Z comes with a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine that delivers 400 horsepower and 475 Nm of torque. A close-ratio six-speed manual transmission sends power to the rear wheels. An Exedy clutch, downshift rev-matching capability, and a carbon-fiber composite driveshaft are all included in the transmission.

A nine-speed automatic transmission with aluminum paddle shifters, launch control, and two drive modes is also available as an option.

A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, leather accents throughout the cabin, launch control, and three driving modes will all be included on the Nissan Z.

The Nissan Z Proto Spec, which costs extra, will be available only in Ikazuchi Yellow with a Super Black top, bronze 19-inch forged alloy wheels and yellow brake calipers. The Z Proto Spec, which will be available in limited numbers, has already garnered several hundred bookings, according to Nissan.
