Putting power to the pavement

The first time in a Nissan Z, launch control holds the engine at the optimal rpm, and modulates power as
you accelerate for the most consistent, jaw-dropping acceleration times possible.[1]
SHIFT INDICATOR & SEAT CUTOUTS
Every part of the Nissan Z works together to give you a thrilling drive. The Sport Mode Display flashes as you approach redline to alert you to shift. The driver’s seat features cutouts for legs and arms, allowing you freedom to work the pedals, steer and shift.

A thrill at every turn
HANDLING & BRAKING
A suspension that responds instantly, steering that communicates every nuance of the road, tires with so much grip you’re pushed against the sides of the seat. Every corner is an experience.
BITES WHEN CORNERED
See how the Nissan Z excites you with every turn of the wheel.
Mechanical Limited-Slip Differential A new available mechanical limited-slip differential doles out those 400 horses to the rear wheels, helping to give you maximum traction and letting you power out of corners.
Suspension Whether it’s a bump in the road or the quick turn of the steering wheel, the Nissan Z is designed to respond with new monotube shocks that provide enhanced dampening. Lightweight suspension components, new front suspension geometry and rear suspension tuning give precision to let you place the Nissan Z exactly where you want.
Wheels and Tires Turn the wheel, and you’ll feel the Nissan Z push you deep into the seat bolsters, thanks to massive available 19" RAYS® super-lightweight forged alloy wheels with wider front tires, and new high-performance design tires at all four corners.
Body Stiffness The stiffer the chassis, the better the suspension can work. Torsional rigidity was increased over 10%, including a stiffer rear hatch that helps give a more solid feel.
Steering so intuitive, it seems to read your mind
