Nissan introduced the Z Proto earlier this year and it recalls a number of classic Z cars including the stylish 300ZX.
While we’re anxiously awaiting the next Z, you can grab this particular car at RM Sotheby’s Open Roads auction later this month.
Imported from Japan in 2018, this 1990 300ZX is in remarkable condition as it has only been driven 8,978 miles (14,448 km) in the past 30 years. As a result, the car’s Platinum Mist exterior is nearly flawless and there are no signs of rust or damage.
The interior is in immaculate condition as well and the black leather seats look like they’ve never been sat on. The plastics look brand new and there’s even an original Japanese sticker on the center console.
Besides being in remarkable condition, the car is equipped with a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 300 hp (224 kW / 304 PS) and 283 lb-ft (384 Nm) of torque. That makes it significantly more powerful than the standard 300ZX which had a naturally aspirated version of the engine producing 222 hp (166 kW / 225 PS) and 198 lb-ft (268 Nm).
If the engine, condition and low mileage wasn’t enough to tempt you, there’s always the five-speed manual transmission which will undoubtedly appeal to enthusiasts. The model also has power steering and brakes as well as an all-wheel steering system.
The listing is light on specifics, but the car was retained by its original owner for 28 years and they took great care of it. This can easily been seen in the numerous service documents and manuals which are included in the auction.
