The car will be called 400Z and will be equipped with a powerful V6 engine.

Nissan decided to upgrade the sports cars of the legendary Z-series. The prototype of the new product is already ready and is now undergoing an active phase of improvements and testing. On Saturday, April 18, there were photos from test trials of new items. The new Nissan 400Z will replace the current 370Z model, which has not been updated for a long time. It is already known that the novelty will receive a power unit from Infiniti Q60 in modification S.

Under the hood will be a 3.0-liter V6 turbocharged engine. The return of such a power plant will exceed 400 horsepower. But the choice of transmission from Nissan will be wider – in addition to the 7-speed automatic transmission available in Infiniti, the Nissan 400Z will also offer a manual for fans of the car with experience.

Also note that the Nissan 400Z will only have rear-wheel drive, unlike the Infiniti Q60S.

This choice was not made by chance – the experts decided to make the mass of the new product smaller in order to provide it with a faster performance. The debut of the new Nissan 400Z is expected in 2021.
