Nissan Fairlady Z

Japanese carmaker Nissan revealed the new facelift version of the Fairlady Z sports car, which apparently will go on sale nationwide through Nissan dealerships. This model is one of the most desirable sports cars in the world. The carmaker managed to sell around 1.7 million units since 1969, when the first generation S30 model debuted. The Fairlady Z sports car is actually a combination of high performance, design, high value, dynamic performance and quality. Now it received fresh exterior and interior styling, but also new performance features. Under the hood, it hides a VQ37VHR 3.7-liter V6 engine which sends its output to the wheels through the first 6-speed manual transmission in the world with synchronized rev control or through a newly developed 7-speed automatic transmission with a manual shift mode. The wheelbase of the new Fairlady Z sports car has been shortened by 100 mm from that of the previous model, offering not only crisper handling and dynamic performance, but also a more aggressive sport stance. The new car comes in a choice of eight attractive body colors, including three all-new Nissan colors. For the interior, the specialists have prepared a new suede cloth, Forte Suede, which can be attached to three dimensional panel surfaces. The center armrest is thoughtfully rounded to avoid interfering with the shifting action of the driver. An accessory case is provided that can be used to hold the vehicle inspection certificate. There is also a Bose sound system and an HDD-based CARWINGS navigation system. The engine is capable of producing 336 PS and 365 Nm of torque. The chassis combines a double-wishbone front suspension with a multi-link rear suspension. All features mentioned offer an enhanced feeling of high performance and increase the driving sensation. All Fairlady Z cars produce 50% less CO2 emissions than the exhaust emission regulations of Japan from 2005.
