1994 Nissan Fairlady 300ZX 'Targa' Coupe
This lot is no longer available
Launched in 1989, Nissan’s Z32 300ZX was the fourth generation of the famous Z-car, a completely fresh design featuring an all-aluminium 24-valve V6 engine displacing 3-litres, a decent handling chassis boasting five-link independent rear suspension, and radical new bodywork that retained the signature targa roof. Although several markets received a twin-turbo version of the V6, Australian buyers were limited to a 168kW naturally-aspirated version of this sweet revving unit, paired with either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmissions. The Z32 was packed with technology under the bonnet and a long list of luxury features inside; electronic climate control air conditioning, central locking, electronic remote control on the mirrors, power windows, halogen headlamps, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, handbrake lever and gear knob gave the car a quality feel in keeping with the hefty price tag. Well received after the gawky awkwardness of the 280ZX, the Nissan 300ZX has matured nicely and is now being looked upon as a modern classic in waiting.
