Nissan is developing a new Z that German competitors will find difficult to catch. A concept is due for upcoming months and it’ll go on sale in 2019.
New Nissan Z-car is making a long-awaited return. At the Tokyo Motor Show in November 2017, Nissan will unveil a next-generation Z idea powered by a series of powertrains that will challenge the very best from Germany.
The brand-new Z idea will embrace similar percentages to the outbound 370Z coupe and, as these illustration tells, it will have an edgier exterior with a much more pronounced grille that takes style hints from the present Nissan GT-R facelift.
Underneath the new model will be based upon a shortened wheelbase variation of the newest Infiniti Q60’s FR-L platform. Integrating with this tried and tested architecture, three powertrains will be on deal. The first will be a fine-tuned variation of Nissan’s in-house developed 3.0-litre V6 engine creating 304bhp.
Along with the entry-level, naturally aspirated V6, we comprehends that Nissan is working on a hybrid alternative that might make the Z the most powerful model in its category. This flagship version would utilize the same 3.0-litre V6 coupled with a 160bhp electric motor for a combined 500bhp output.
Finishing the line-up will be a 3.0-litre V6 bi-turbo, churning out 405bhp and 475Nm of torque. Power will be transferred through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. That puts the brand-new Nissan Z-car in person with competitors like Porsche’s 718 Cayman S and BMW’s M2.
Like we have observed in the modified GT-R supercar, we can likewise expect to see higher focus on detail inside the new Z with much greater levels of interior trim quality and materials. The production Nissan Z automobile is anticipated to enter showrooms by 2019 starting at around $24,000 for the base design, with a price tag of roughly $44,000 for the twin-turbo.
