The much-anticipated Nissan Z has been around for about 18 months now and it's one of those cars that has mixed reviews, but we honestly can’t fault it. We like the looks, the size, the features, and of course, that proven and highly-tunable twin-turbocharged VR30DDTT, a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine generating 298 kW. Well, it did make that, it’s been given a bump to 309 kW, and along with that bump on power, there is a few very cool cosmetic upgrades that have just been previewed and are packaged as accessory packages. So far these available upgrades are limited to the Japanese market, but the actual components used to make up the kits should soon be available from dealerships worldwide. Well, worldwide minus South Africa. For some reason, the bean counters at Nissan have decided that the new Z will not be coming to South Africa. It would have been the perfect rival to the Toyota Supra, but with such a strong currency ( that’s sarcasm) the cars should be priced similarly. Instead, we get nothing, in-fact Nissan has no sports cars in sale in SA anymore which ai quite sad. Anyone wanting a modern rear-wheel drive Nissan that has boost will need to have the spooly bois added in an aftermarket environment. That’s not cool, and it forces willing buyers into the Toyota or BMW way of life. Seems like a missed opportunity, but what does a writer know about these things?
Take a look at the YouTube video that shows us the new NISMO version of the new Nissan Z car, one of the most interesting-looking rear-wheel drive sports cars available right now. It has the looks and the power and the right pricing, it's just a pity it hasn't been confirmed for the SA market, click through to see what you're missing: The 2024 Nissan Z Nismo Brings More Power & Track Worthy Handling To The Fairlady Z | Redline Reviews
