Unveiling the All-New Nissan Z®
Relive the reveal
If you weren’t able to see the all-new 2023 Nissan Z make its debut in the original live broadcast, you can catch it right here. Watch now to experience the next-generation Z, and discover the exciting new features.
Forever ahead of the curve
The all-new 2023 Z stays true to its performance roots, with a powerful 6-cylinder under the hood. A front midship, rear-wheel-drive design places the engine farther back in the chassis for enhanced balance, while a new suspension makes you feel hard-wired to the road. It’s an authentic sports car in the purest sense of the term. []
400 horsepower at 6,400 rpm
At the heart of the Z is a 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbocharged 24-valve engine. Thanks to the aluminum-alloy block and heads, it's nice and light. Plus, with a water-cooled intercooler, it stays at the right temperature.
Mechanical limited-slip differential
A newly available mechanical limited-slip differential helps distribute power to the driven wheel with the best grip, helping you power out of corners.
For the first time on any Nissan Z, an available launch control helps eliminate wheel spin and hop. By holding the engine at a pre-set rpm and modulating power as you pull away, it delivers the fastest, most consistent acceleration every time. []
6-speed manual transmission
It’s not a sports car without a manual transmission. The new first- and second-gear synchros are designed to help handle the Z's powerful twin-turbo engine. Enhancing the connection, the shift mechanism has been redesigned for a more direct response you can really feel.
9-speed automatic transmission
Meet 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, this year's model features new mono tube shocks, enhanced front geometry and rear suspension tuning. Electric power steering also makes an appearance for the first time ever on a Z. That means near-infinite tuning for inspired control and precision. []
The stiffer the chassis, the better the suspension can work. To help get the maximum out of the Z’s suspension, torsional rigidity has increased over 10%.
Tuned to give braking with excellent feel and stopping power, available sport brakes feature 14-inch front rotors with 4-piston calipers. []
Always in your element
Crafted to bring out your best performance, the Z's interior holds you firmly in place through every curve, with room to move. Advanced technology serves up everything you need to know and nothing you don’t, with classic design that never forgets what a true sports car must be.
Focused on the driver, the all-new Z keeps you in the loop with a new digital gauge cluster and an available 8-inch centre touchscreen display. It also offers an optional 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 centre 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
Tap into the Z's Sport Mode screen, one of three selectable screens on the digital dashboard. It was designed with input from Tsugio Matsuda, a racer for NISMO® who competes in Japan's Super GT racing series.
Legendary triple-pod cluster
Legacy meets next-wave design. In the all-new 2023 Z, you get key information at a glance, including turbo boost, turbine speed and voltage via the enhanced triple pod cluster.
2023 Nissan Z® Proto Spec []
Because first impressions are everything
The pulse-raising Z Proto Spec offers exclusivity, excitement and exhilarating performance. Seeing one will be rare. And seeing one stopped? Probably even more so.
Recognition at high speed
The all-new Nissan Z serves up classic sports car proportions of a long hood and a short rear deck. Combined with iconic Z styling elements, it creates a design that is completely modern, yet immediately identifiable as a Nissan Z.

Safety & Driver Assist
Confidence to match the capability
Advanced driver assist and safety technology help take the daily workload off the driver, so you can concentrate on what matters most – the pure enjoyment of every drive.
Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection monitors your speed and distance from the car ahead, alerting you 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 keeps an eye on the two cars in front of you. It detects when one suddenly decelerates, warning you to slow down, so you can avoid a collision. []
Blind Spot Warning
Avoid hazards on the highway. Blind Spot Warning gives you a heads up when it detects a vehicle hiding in your blind spot, so you can steer clear of danger. []
Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Manoeuvre confidently in any parking lot or driveway. When you’re backing out of a space, Rear Cross Traffic Alert watches around the rear of your Z, warning you about cars it detects creeping up from either side. []
Lane Departure Warning
Drive between the lines. Lane Departure Warning helps make sure you change lanes only when you mean to. If the system detects that you’re drifting over without signalling, a gentle buzz on the steering wheel can let you know. []
High Beam Assist
High Beam Assist can automatically deactivate your high beams if it detects an oncoming vehicle. After the other driver has passed, the system can reactivate the high beams, so you don't have to feel around for the switch.
