Guess what? The new Nissan '400Z' just got leaked!

The headlights and grille seem slightly different from the concept, but everything else is the exact same

Just as those leaked patent images from some time ago seemed to confirm, the production version of the new Nissan ‘400Z’ will look pretty much identical to the Z Proto concept.

Nice new ducktail spoiler at the rear!

The ‘400Z’ will likely be powered by the same engine found in the Infiniti Q60 Red Sport: a 3.0-litre VR30DDTT twin-turbo V6 with an estimated power output of 444 hp.

Nissan has confirmed the new Z will have a 6-speed manual transmission, but an optional automatic transmission has also been confirmed. Unfortunately, the car pictured here features the latter.

The red side marker seems to confirm that this might be a US-spec car. Also, that's a massive fuel cap!

The final, production-spec ‘400Z’ will be revealed later this year, with sales likely beginning in 2022.
Prices for Nissan’s new sports coupe, obviously, haven’t been announced yet, but it’s not like it matters that much to me: the ‘400Z’ isn’t coming to Europe, anyway. cries.

The only real difference from the Z Proto on the interior is the absence of the stick shift, replaced by a gear selector. Altough we still don't know what kind of automatic transmission will be used, you can clearly see shift paddles mounted behind the steering wheel
