1984-1989 NISSAN 300ZX Turbo specifications


A sharp new look for the 1984 Nissan 300ZX failed to add any excitement to the Z-car line, despite being all-new under the skin, and the first in the line to feature a V6 engine. The familiar looking styling was more aerodynamic than before, boasting a drag co-efficient of just 0.30. In the UK, it was the first to be fitted with a turbo, which managed to deliver lots of straight line pace, if not finesse. Handling was firmer than the sloppy Datsun 280ZX, but still not good enough to be considered a sports car in the traditional sense of the word.
