Tuned Sport Muffler as heard in the promo (Performance Spec)


Sorry to disappoint but I saw Active Sound Enhancement listed somewhere. This may be switchable like the Q60. Please make it switchable!


It may or may not sound like this. The performance exhaust that is.

Extra Safety Features -


Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection monitors your speed and distance between you and the car ahead, and can let you know if you need to slow down.

It can also automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a frontal collision or lessen the severity of an impact. And when it detects a pedestrian in the crosswalk, it can stop you in your tracks.

Intelligent Forward Collision Warning
What’s up ahead? Intelligent Forward Collision Warning watches two cars ahead, and when it detects sudden deceleration in front of you, it gives you a warning to slow down

Blind Spot Warning
Wait. Was that a car over there? Z with Blind Spot Warning helps keep an eye on the blind spot area and gives you a heads-up if it detects a vehicle hiding there.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Fear no parking lot, or driveway. When you’re backing out of your space, Rear Cross Traffic Alert watches around the rear of your Z and can warn you about cars it detects creeping up on you from either side.

Lane Departure Warning
Hold it right there. Lane Departure Warning helps make sure you change lanes only when you mean to.

If the system detects that you’re drifting over, a gentle buzz on the steering wheel can let you know.

High Beam Assist
High Beam Assist can automatically deactivate the Z’s high beams if it detects an oncoming vehicle, a response appreciated by everyone. After the driver has passed, the system can reactivate the high beams.

400 twin-turbocharged horsepower
At the heart of the Z is a 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbocharged 24-valve engine. An aluminum-alloy block and heads keep things light, while a water-cooled intercooler helps keep things cool. An optical speed sensor brings power with turbine speeds up to a dizzying 220,000 rpm.

Mechanical Limited-slip Differential
A new available mechanical limited-slip differential helps distribute power to the driven wheel with the best grip, helping you power out of corners
Launch Control
The first on any Z – available launch control helps eliminate wheel spin and hop, by holding the engine at a pre-set rpm and modulates power as you pull away to give you the fastest, most consistent acceleration every time.


6-speed manual transmission
In the 2023 Z, new first- and second-gear synchros are designed to help handle the powerful twin-turbo engine. Enhancing the connection, the shift mechanism has been redesigned to give a more direct, positive feeling.

9-speed automatic transmission
The one transmission that can tempt manual drivers. The Z features a new 9-speed automatic with shift-by-wire technology activated by a unique palm-shaped controller. For added thrills, you can employ the available steering wheel paddle shifters borrowed from the Nissan GT-R.


Suspension and steering
To make sure it handles like a Z, the new model features new mono tube shocks, new front geometry and rear suspension tuning. Electric power steering – the first time on a Z, allows near-infinite tuning for inspired control and precision.

Body rigidity
The stiffer the chassis, the better the suspension can work. To help get the maximum out of the Z’s suspension, torsional rigidity was increased over 10%.

Performance brakes
Tuned to give braking with excellent feel and stopping power, available Sport Brakes feature 14" front rotors with 4-piston calipers.

All-New 2023 Z driver’s interior
It holds you in ways you never dreamed of
A great dance partner knows how to hold you perfectly. Tight enough for control, but with room to move, too. Advanced technology serves up everything you need to know and nothing you don’t, combined with classic design that never forgets what a true thrilling sports car must be.


Redesigned cockpit
Purely driver-focused, the all-new Z keeps you in the loop with a new digital gauge cluster and an available 9” center touch-screen display with NissanConnect®, including available Door to Door Navigation, Wi-Fi Hotspot and Remote Access.

New performance seats
The Z features a new seat design that offers impressive lateral support, along with anti-slip material and a slide-reducing center pad in the lower seat cushion. Knee bolsters work with the performance seats to help keep the driver in place.


GT-R®-inspired steering wheel
Point to the future with a nod to our history. The leather-wrapped rim is thicker than the current GT-R, while the unique groove at the top of the wheel was inspired by the legendary GT-R R32.

Race car driver-designed gauges
The Z’s Sport Mode screen – one of three selectable screens for the digital dashboard – was designed with input from Tsugio Matsuda, a racer for NISMO in Super GT in Japan.

Legendary triple pod cluster
A Z legacy, in the all-new 2023 Z, you get key information including turbo boost, turbine speed – yes, up to 220,000 rpm – and voltage.

The Head of Marketing never mentioned that there would be an option like that lol. I wonder what the two trims monthly cost difference will be with a sizeable deposit.


Im assuming a £5000 difference between sport and performance. Limited edition being slightly above performance. Then Nismo matching Supra price
