This Classic Nissan 300ZX Is A Better Buy Than A New Z

Auctions / 15 Comments

Partly because it's available right now.

Nissan's family of Z cars has to be one of the most well-known and loved ranges of Japanese sports cars ever made. The classic Nissan 240Z famously introduced the American market to the world of reliable and affordable Japanese sports car motoring, and over the years, the name has gained more popularity both abroad and here in the US. Modern iterations of the Z have become the choice of grassroots racing drivers across the country, and older models such as the twin-turbocharged Nissan 300ZX are becoming collectible classics. Now that the all-new Nissan Z is on its way, Z fever is gripping the country, and what better way to celebrate the coming of the new car, than by buying one of its coolest predecessors: this 6,000-mile 300ZX twin-turbo five-speed.

The 300ZX Twin Turbo will go down in history as one of the most technologically advanced JDM sports cars of the 1990s, and this example is one of the cleanest we've ever seen. With only 6,000 miles on the odometer, this 300ZX is finished in Glacier White Pearl Glow and retains its original factory 16-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Rosso tires. It also has a super cool design feature in the form of its special T-Top roof. The immaculate exterior is matched by an equally impressive Charcoal leather interior. The cabin features a power-adjustable driver's seat, a Bose sound system, power windows, cruise control, and the most '90s steering wheel and shifter combo you've ever seen. The tach goes all the way up to 9k rpm, and the speedo shows off with a 160 mph top speed.

Under the skin, this Nissan sports car hides advanced tech such as HICAS (High Capacity Actively Controlled Suspension) and passive four-wheel steering. Behind those 16-inch wheels hides a set of four-piston front brake calipers. Under the hood, this Nissan packs a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine producing 300 horsepower and 283 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear via a sought-after five-speed manual transmission - no slushbox here. The current bid on this JDM icon stands at $22,500, but we're sure that price will creep over $30k once the P Car Market auction ends in two days. Who needs a brand new Z when you can travel back to a time when the Soviet Union was on its knees and JDM cars still looked like spaceships?
