2023 Nissan Z
For the curve, for the straightaway, for anywhere
The all-new 2023 Z stays true to its performance roots, with a powerful 6-cylinder under the hood; a Front Midship, rear-wheel-drive design that places the engine farther back in the chassis for enhanced balance; and a suspension that makes you feel hard-wired to the road. It’s an authentic sports car in the purest sense of the word.
400 twin-turbocharged horsepower
At the heart of the Z is a 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbocharged 24-valve engine. An aluminum-alloy block and heads keep things light, while a water-cooled intercooler helps keep things cool. An optical speed sensor brings power with turbine speeds up to a dizzying 220,000 rpm.
Mechanical Limited-slip Differential
A new available mechanical limited-slip differential helps distribute power to the driven wheel with the best grip, helping you power out of corners.
The first on any Z – available launch control helps eliminate wheel spin and hop, by holding the engine at a pre-set rpm and modulates power as you pull away to give you the fastest, most consistent acceleration every time.
6-speed manual transmission
In the 2023 Z, new first- and second-gear synchros are designed to help handle the powerful twin-turbo engine. Enhancing the connection, the shift mechanism has been redesigned to give a more direct, positive feeling.
9-speed automatic transmission
The one transmission that can tempt manual drivers. The Z features a new 9-speed automatic with shift-by-wire technology activated by a unique palm-shaped controller. For added thrills, you can employ the available steering wheel paddle shifters borrowed from the Nissan GT-R.
Suspension and steering
To make sure it handles like a Z, the new model features new mono tube shocks, new front geometry and rear suspension tuning. Electric power steering – the first time on a Z, allows near-infinite tuning for inspired control and precision.
The stiffer the chassis, the better the suspension can work. To help get the maximum out of the Z’s suspension, torsional rigidity was increased over 10%.
Tuned to give braking with excellent feel and stopping power, available Sport Brakes feature 14″ front rotors with 4-piston calipers.
All-New 2023 Z driver’s interior
It holds you in ways you never dreamed of
A great dance partner knows how to hold you perfectly. Tight enough for control, but with room to move, too. Advanced technology serves up everything you need to know and nothing you don’t, combined with classic design that never forgets what a true thrilling sports car must be.
Purely driver-focused, the all-new Z keeps you in the loop with a new digital gauge cluster and an available 9” center touch-screen display with NissanConnect®, including available Door to Door Navigation, Wi-Fi Hotspot and Remote Access.
New performance seats
The Z features a new seat design that offers impressive lateral support, along with anti-slip material and a slide-reducing center pad in the lower seat cushion. Knee bolsters work with the performance seats to help keep the driver in place.
GT-R®-inspired steering wheel
Point to the future with a nod to our history. The leather-wrapped rim is thicker than the current GT-R, while the unique groove at the top of the wheel was inspired by the legendary GT-R R32.
Race car driver-designed gauges
The Z’s Sport Mode screen – one of three selectable screens for the digital dashboard – was designed with input from Tsugio Matsuda, a racer for NISMO in Super GT in Japan.
Legendary triple pod cluster
A Z legacy, in the all-new 2023 Z, you get key information including turbo boost, turbine speed – yes, up to 220,000 rpm – and voltage.
All-New 2023 Z design
Instantly recognizable – uniquely Z
The all-new Nissan Z serves up classic sports car proportions of a long hood and a short rear deck. Combined with iconic Z styling elements, it creates a design that is completely modern, yet immediately identifiable as a Nissan Z.
