HJA bring you another rare cult classic from Japan. The Nissan 300ZX is a phenomenal performance sports car that is rapidly gaining popularity as a collector vehicle. The 300ZX perfectly blends a combination of sleek and exquisite styling with incredible performance. Thanks to excellent design and quality craftsmanship, the Nissan 300ZX has won several awards and makes for a fantastic driving machine.
This particular example is the highly sought-after twin turbo manual 5 speed which produces upwards of 280ps from factory. It was graded 4 in Japan which also means it has had no accident history and unbelievably still has the factory paint on the main panels of the car.
As you can see from the underneath pics the chassis is still in amazing condition for a car of this age. Everything still looks pretty much OEM under there with no major rust issues that unfortunately ruin so many of these cult classics.
A couple snippets of an article posted by eManualOnline about these amazing machines:
The Z31 was a very successful generation for the Nissan 300ZX, effectively establishing a foothold in the sports performance car marketplace. Nissan used that to launch the Z32 300ZX, which featured a completely remodelled exterior. It was during this generation of production that the Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo surfaced.
There is only one twin-turbo engine option available that drastically improved the performance of the Nissan 300ZX. This is the VG30DETT, a 3.0L V6 twin-turbocharged engine. When paired with a 5-speed manual transmission, the twin-turbocharged 300ZX produces an impressive 300 horsepower and a respectable 280 horsepower with a 4-speed automatic. The original 3.0L V6 naturally aspirated engine also carried over from the Z31 generation.
While the 300ZX is especially popular among the millennial generation, it isn’t popular just due to nostalgic reasons. The golden years of the 300ZX were between 1990 and 1996 in the Z32 generation, during which the model won several awards, including being named to the Car and Driver’s 10 Best lists every single year... That’s some serious star power right there.
Even after the 300ZX ceased production, it continued to win awards. Automobile named the Z32 300ZX as one of the 100 greatest vehicles of all time in 2004, and one of the 20 great cars of the past 20 years and one of the 25 most beautiful cars in history in 2006. The model was mentioned once again in 2010 when GQ Magazine also listed the Z32 300ZX as one of the most stylish cars from the last 50 years.
Sourcing fresh import examples like this are becoming ever more difficult. Overall if you are after a solid example to enjoy yourself, to be part of a collection or as an investment look no further
