For Under $100,000, This Nissan 30ZX Is Faster Than A Bugatti Chiron

Auction

That makes this Nissan the bargain of the century.

Not long ago, we reported that a very unique Toyota Supra with a V12 engine was going up for auction. This insane Toyota has 930 hp and 745 lb-ft of torque and a top speed of 222.59 mph. We thought that this was easily the best car that we'd see from BH Auction in Japan. Instead, that honor now goes to one very special Nissan 300ZX. Back in the 1990s, the 300ZX ushered in a new era of performance for Nissan in the US. The Z32 300ZX is now a bit of a cult classic, but we've never seen one like this before.

The car is officially known as the 1991 JUN Bonneville 300ZX Z32. It gets its name because it was built to participate in the Bonneville Speed Trial in the Utah Salt Flats. This car was originally a two-seater twin turbo 5-speed manual transmission model, but famous tuner JUN brought the performance to a new level. JUN added Porsche Group C turbochargers, so the car now produces around 985 hp. In order to improve the high speed stability, the car has a rear diffuser that produces a ton of downforce. It may not be a great street car now, but the final gear ratio has been changed to 3.5 so it can be used on the road.

At its peak tune, this 300ZX was able to hit a top speed of 261.932 mph. Amazingly, that's slightly faster than the electronically limited top speed of the Bugatti Chiron. BH Auction expects the car to sell between 8 million yen ($70,560) and 11 million yen ($97,020), which makes this Nissan a huge bargain.
