In the 2023 Z, new first- and second-gear synchros are designed to help handle the powerful twin-turbo engine. Enhancing the connection, the shift mechanism has been redesigned to give a more direct, positive feeling.
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.
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.
The Z’s Sport Mode screen – one of three selectable screens for the digital dashboard – was designed with input from Tsugio Matsuda, a racer for NISMO in Super GT in Japan.
A Z legacy, in the all-new 2023 Z, you get key information including turbo boost, turbine speed – yes, up to 220,000 rpm – and voltage.
To make sure it handles like a Z, the new model features new monotube shocks, new front geometry, and rear suspension tuning. Electric power steering – the first time on a Z, allows 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, the torsional rigidity was increased by over 10%.
Tuned to give braking with excellent feel and stopping power, available Sport Brakes feature 14″ front rotors with 4-piston calipers.
