The new Nissan Z was unveiled in New York City, in case if you are wondering about the significance of New York City and the launch of Nissan Z, this time would have spawned one of the biggest automotive events in the world; The New York Auto Show, and thanks to the global pandemic, the show has been ‘postponed'.

When Nissan initially teased the upcoming replacement for the Nissan 370Z, one of the things that got every automotive enthusiast's pulse racing was the silhouette. The classic shape became an immediate hit among the enthusiasts and the company received an overwhelming response around the globe.

With the response, all Nissan had to do was focus on the drivetrain and dynamics to go with the design. That being said, the new Nissan Z stays very true to the ‘Z Proto' concept revealed a year ago, and we are pleased to inform you that the final version carries forward many design elements from the concept.

Design-wise, the front end features a prominent squared-off front grille with uniquely shaped headlamps reminiscent of a leaf. The side profile oozes with character with its long bonnet and short tail.

Moving to the inside of the Nissan Z, it immediately identifies itself as a Japanese sports car with varying surface shapes like the square central console and rounded door handles.

However, unlike many cars where the large infotainment unit takes the spotlight, in the new Nissan Z, the three analogue gauges at the centre console grab our attention the most.

These three analogue gauges show turbocharger boost, turbocharger turbine speed, and volts. The nest thing that grabs your attention in the interior of the new Nissan z is the round steering wheel and the beautifully laid-out fully digital instrument cluster.

Trim-wise, the base sort variant uses an 8-inch infotainment unit and a set of 18-ich alloy wheels, whereas the more premium sport trim uses a 9-inch infotainment unit and a set of 19-inch from the limited edition ‘Z Proto'.

Speaking of the limited-edition ‘Z Proto' variant, only 240 of these examples will ever be made (in the US). The Z Proto variant will come with extras such as yellow brake callipers, 19-inch RAY wheels finished in bronze, suede leather inserts in the interior along with some splashes of yellow accents.
