The Nissan 300ZX (Z32) is one of those cars that has just got better with age.
The “futuristic” design looks every bit as good in 2021 as it did when it first rolled off the production line in the late 1980s.
If you’ve read our Nissan 300ZX buyer’s guide, then you will know what we are big fans of this car – and this “JDM hero” would surely need to take up residence in our dream garage if budget were no limitation.
We were recently lucky enough to get to spend some time with this incredible 1989 Nissan 300ZX twin turbo, available for sale in New Zealand at Southern Specialist Cars in Christchurch.
What’s so great about this particular 300ZX is that it is presented in excellent, original condition. Apart from an aftermarket strut brace in the boot (trunk, for our American readers) we couldn’t see any other modifications.
We spent about an hour looking at the car, taking a number of photos of it for our 300ZX buyer’s guide and we were blown away by the condition – this would be a worthy addition to any collector’s garage, but the car is not so unattainable that you couldn’t drive it and enjoy it either.
Key facts about this 300ZX twin turbo for sale:
- 58,000 km on the clock
- 5-speed manual transmission
- Very original condition
- Lift-out targa roof
- 2+2 seating configuration
- JDM-spec car, carrying the Fairlady Z badging (as opposed to 300ZX)
- First imported into New Zealand in 2015
- Even comes with two, original keys
Southern Specialist Cars are asking $56,990 NZD for this particular car. With original examples increasingly hard to find (especially in the desirable spec of twin turbo + manual gearbox) it’s not hard to imagine prices continuing to rise – especially as the 300ZX is well on the way to classic status.
We have viewed a number of classics/modern classics recently (in order to get photos for our buyer’s guides) and this 300ZX has definitely been one of the most impressive examples we have seen, especially due to its high level of originality.
If you’re interested in this car, then contact Southern Specialist Cars here for more information. Their team has indicated to us that they would assist prospective buyers in exporting this car as well, so if you’re based outside of New Zealand but like the look of this particular 300ZX, then it’s worth contacting to see what might be able to be arranged.
