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.
