After a long wait, Nissan is finally launching its new sports car, the Nissan Z. Its premier is expected this year as a 2021 model. There are some high expectations from the Nissan Z, especially as it will be replacing the beloved Nissan 370Z, which you can still buy as a used car in Dubai. Even though there isn’t much information available right now, CarSwitch.com reveals what we know so far about this model.
The 400hp 3.0L V6 engine is the strongest among the mainstream lineup of Nissan and Infiniti, except for the GT-R. The company also gave a hint that it may come with a six-speed manual for its modified 370Z concept.
What will it be called?
People are wondering about the name for the new Z, given the engine’s displacement. They are guessing it to be 400Z, considering that the name should be in accordance with the performance and superiority over its previous models rather than its displacement.
As reported by Autocar, the new Z will share various components with the Infiniti Q60 coupe, which was one of the most stunning cars of 2019. It will have the latest version of Nissan’s FM platform, considering that the proper way to set up a sports car is to have a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. They further reported that its internal name is Z35, which might or might not be changed.
Interior and exterior style
Furthermore, it’s expected that it will come with new styling. It will most likely take inspiration from the original Datsun 240Z. The interior is expected to be modern, with its comfortable two-seater, new dashboard design, and the latest infotainment system by Nissan.
It will be exciting to see what the Nissan Z looks like, especially considering how the previous Nissan sports car 370Z is still a cherished used car in Dubai, which you can check out on CarSwitch.com!
