For a long time Nissan has been working on the successor of his sports car Nissan 370Z, the sixth generation of the saga started by the Nissan fairlady z in the late '60s. The Japanese brand already gave a preview of what its new "thoroughbred" could look like last year when it presented the Nissan z proto (video) and now he announced when he will reveal the mystery.
Unofficially known as Nissan 400Z, although everything suggests that it will be called Nissan z to dry, its world presentation will be the next 17 August in the framework of New International Auto Show Y (NYIAS).
The new breed of this sports car will be strongly inspired by the Z Proto, from which it inherits a retro-style design and a V6 Twin Turbo engine with a power of about 400 horses that would be coupled to a eight-speed automatic transmission with a sporty fit for better enjoyment.
The new Z would cost in the United States about U.S. dollar 40.000, several thousand more than the generation it replaces. However, this increase has several reasons since in addition to being equipped with a infotainment system - absent from the 370Z - will add to the sense of luxury, coupled with improved performance and sharper styling.
The Nissan Z will go out to compete in a segment with heavyweight rivals such as Toyota Toyota GR Supra, BMW Z4 y A. The ace up his sleeve, surely, will be a version We did not, which takes all benefits to the extreme.
