2023 Nissan 400Z Nismo Arrived – Here’s Everything You Need to Know

2023 Nissan 400Z Nismo – The Z-car from Nissan is likely to be the one, but it is not the most talked-about car in 2021. After 13 years of production for the 370Z model, it’s time for a new model to be announced. Nissan has been extremely secretive regarding the specific specs of the Z-car. The only thing we can say is US prices will begin at about $35,000. But sometimes, information leaks ahead of when it was supposed to. As is the case with the information we’re about sharing.

Engine & Specs

The moment pictures of the Nissan Z started circulating in the media, a lot of people were wondering whether there would be a NISMO variant of the rear-wheel-drive coupe. It seems that the solution is true. Additionally, some details have been leaked on the powertrain for the upcoming NISMO 400Z. We are nearly certain that the 400Z will feature its 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 that is used in The Infiniti Reedsport models.

However, some details were leaked suggesting has revealed that NISMO will use an entirely different engine within the NISMO 400Z. We also are aware that it will feature the same V-6 twin-turbo configuration. In this regard, there’s only one engine that springs to our mind. It seems NISMO will be able to fulfill every JDM fanboy’s dream of a wet one. Nissan’s motorsport division is planning to put the GTR’s current engine inside the smaller rear-wheel-drive coupe. It means that in 2022 it is possible to have a car that is driven by the Godzilla engine and mated to a manual gearbox.

The VR38 model could also be equipped with direct injection, similar to its smaller sibling which is the VR30DDTT that is available on Infiniti’s vehicles. We expect to see the engine be tuned down as the 400Z is smaller and is rear-wheel-drive-only. We also aren’t sure how much power the standard manual gearbox could use, should you decide to opt for it rather than the Mercedes-built automated. We expect at the very least 500 horsepower (373 Kilowatts) and 442 pounds-feet (600 Nm) from the next NISMO Z.

Last thing. Happy April’s Fool! We hope you enjoyed this piece. Sincerely, I want Nissan to develop something like the GTR-powered Z-car which can also be equipped with an automatic gearbox. Unfortunately, there’s no sign of this happening anytime very soon. In the meantime automobile manufacturers are nowadays very secretive about what they are doing, so you’ll never know.
