1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo 5-Speed

One of the most acclaimed Japanese sports cars of the 1990s, the second-generation Nissan 300ZX was listed on Car & Driver's 10Best list each year it was available in the United States. Featuring a 300 HP twin-turbocharged V6 engine, adjustable suspension, and four-wheel steering, this 1990 example was delivered new in Kentucky and remained with the original owner after being relocated to Ohio until it was acquired by the seller. Finished in Diamond Black Pearl Metallic over a black leather interior, this 300ZX is now being offered at auction out of California showing approximately 54k miles on the odometer.

Finished in Diamond Black Pearl Metallic (732), this Twin Turbo can be distinguished from a standard 300ZX by the horizontal intercooler slits in the front bumper and specialized badging on the trunk lid. Equipment includes front and rear spoilers and a T-top roof with removable glass panels. The original 16” wheels wear Z-branded center caps and Fuzion tires. The exterior is described to have been very well cared for with only minor stone chips on the nose, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

The cabin features a pair of sports seats in the front and a contoured rear bench seat trimmed in black leather. Amenities include a power-adjustable driver's seat, a leather-wrapped Z steering wheel, a leather stitched shift knob, floor mats with 300ZX insignias, automatic climate control, cruise control, and power windows, mirrors, and door locks, as well as a BOSE sound system.

The 300ZX is equipped with a 3.0L VG30DETT V6 featuring four valves per cylinder and coil-on-plug ignition, factory rated at 300 horsepower and 283 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. All Twin-Turbo models come standard with a HICAS (High Capacity Actively Controlled Suspension) four-wheel steering system, 4-piston brake calipers, larger 11” brake rotors, and an adjustable suspension with Sport and Touring modes. The CARFAX report shows some previous service history and the seller states a recent Mobil 1 synthetic oil change has been completed.

This sale will include a set of keys, owner’s manuals, associated sales literature, and a car cover.

    @WsmataU the car is detailed it shows better in person, you clearly don't follow these auctions.

    You're going to need a decent detail and to buy better tires if you want this to break $30k.

    @ Faraz I posted a few pictures of the front trying to capture the area again very moderate what I would expect from a 32 year old car. The rest of the car is excellent even this I’d never fix because to me it’s pretty minor.

    @Faraz The paint is in excellent condition except as noted a few rock chips in the front, if I kept the car I wouldn’t repair them but you could wrap or paint it for a few dollars as it’s just the front small piece. The other paint is in excellent condition, I had it clay barred and then polished and waxed, the previous owner kept it covered and in a climate controlled garage. Good luck bidding she’s beautiful and wicked fast.

    I know its a 30+ year old car but how is the condition of the paint?

    Welcome to my auction of this beautiful one owner Twin turbo 300zx, I’m here to answer any questions that come up. The lady that owned it bought it new from a dealer and flew down to pick it up and drove it back to Ohio. The previous owner never drove the car in snow or rain the family had multiple homes and this one was always climate controlled and covered. It’s a fun and wicked fast car. Good luck bidding on this car.
