Dizzying output

This 400-horsepower V6 is just as smart as it is relentless. Its aluminum-alloy block and heads are nice and light, which helps optimize performance. Plus, its water-cooled intercooler works to keep everything at the right temperature. Optical turbo speed sensors take it all over the top, helping the turbines reach up to 6,400 rpm.

Manual & Automatic Transmissions

Squeeze out every single rpm

Connecting the driver and engine, the Z uses advanced technology to create driving-focused transmissions that can make any driver feel like a master, and a serious driver like a pro. [[2203]]
