DT: 1991 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo 5-Speed Show Car

Among the most desirable Nissan Z-cars of all, the Z32-generation 300ZX Twin Turbo was one of the most advanced sports cars of its time featuring CAD-designed bodywork and a twin-turbocharged V6 engine with boundless opportunities for tuning. This 1991 example has been modified as a show car including custom scissor doors, a widebody kit, coilover suspension, a custom sound system, and an impressive list of engine performance parts. Said to have undergone a complete rebuild of its original VG30 twin-turbo engine, this one-of-a-kind 300ZX is now being offered for auction out of South Carolina with under 79k miles showing on the odometer.

This Nissan was refinished in the current pearl white color under prior ownership and fitted with a custom widebody kit including flared fenders, side skirts, and revised bumpers. Factory equipment includes removable T-top glass roof panels and a rear spoiler with integrated brake light. The car has also been fitted with a VIS Racing carbon fiber hood, Lamborghini-style scissor doors, and a set of 18” Volk GTC multipiece wheels with gold-painted spokes and polished outer lips. All new rubber seals have been installed throughout the body and the tires show production date codes from 2007. Additional images are provided in the gallery along with a CARFAX report showing an accident to have occurred in 2004.

The cabin is trimmed in black and grey leather and features an Autopower roll cage as well as a custom Alpine sound system including a folding head unit and IVA 310 subwoofer. Other additions include metal pedal covers, a MOMO shift knob, and an AEM digital wideband gauge. Factory equipment includes automatic climate control, power windows and mirrors, cruise control, and a multi-adjustable driver’s seat.

The 3.0-liter VG30DETT V6 engine was reportedly rebuilt within the last 2k miles and features extensive upgrades including Garrett GT3078 turbochargers, a TDM intercooler, Specialty Z oil pan, JWT 500 “Wild Cam”, JWT valve springs, BDE cam gear, oversized Ferrera intake valves, Weisco pistons, Eagle rods, ACL bearings, ARP head studs, a 58mm throttle body, an AEM boost controller, and AEM standalone ECU. Other modifications include a Spitfire ignition coil with HKS TwinSpark, BDE motor mounts, Stillen engine damper, EGR block-off plate, MSP exhaust manifolds, SZ downpipe, and B&B exhaust system with X-pipe. The fuel system includes Russel lines, a Walbro 450 pump, an Aeromotive regulator, and a BDE fuel rail with 1000cc dynamic injectors. Engine cooling has been improved with a 19-row Z1 oil cooler, silicone hoses, a KOYO radiator, and a Spal electric fan with a thermostatic switch.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission with a Stillen short shifter, SZ/RPS clutch kit, and Fidanza flywheel. The factory HICAS active steering system has been eliminated and the suspension has been upgraded with a Tein Flex coilover kit, front and rear strut braces, Powertrix camber arms, Energy suspension bushings, and SPL frame bushings. A collection of supporting invoices and service records is provided in the gallery.

This sale will include documentation and a clean title.

    @123floor Oh nothing to be concerned. The owner recently moved within the last year to Gaffney South Carolina. He still has his business in Quebec.

  • 123floor (registered bidder) 1 week, 2 daysago

    Any insight as to why this wasn’t done prior? If it’s an easy process I wonder why it was avoided. How long has the car been in the states?

  • danevosler (seller) 1 week, 2 daysago

    @123floor Yes it's registered in quebec. It's a fairly straightforward process, Just have to pay some extra fees to finish the Process of registration

  • danevosler (seller) 1 week, 2 daysago

    @artichoke No that's Good question though. It may have been on a Dyno a while back but not with the current owner.

    @Blubyeyou Sorry I only have to start up and walk around video. It drives very similar to a normal twin Turbo just a little extra but not obnoxious

  • 123floor (registered bidder) 1 week, 2 daysago

    I see the Quebec plates. Does it have a U.S. title and registration currently?

  • artichoke (registered bidder) 1 week, 2 daysago

    Any performance info on this cool car?

  • Blubyeyou (registered bidder) 1 week, 2 daysago

    Tempted... Any way you can st a driving video please? I'm in Hardeeville SC. Thanks!

    @dabdella It's definitely possible! Many 300ZX TT's in California. Would some adjustments be needed? Maybe. Possibly the EGR block off plate, but that's 'relatively' accessible, although everything under the hood is kind of tight :) It's doable for sure.

    Hi Seller, that is a sweet ride! What do think my chances are getting it into California? It would have to go through a DMV Inspection & Smog Cert. Thanks!

    Hello! I'm happy to list this amazing 300zx twin Turbo. This car has amazing features added to it, and still drives like ZX Twin Turbo with its original engine and transmission. Please let me know any questions you have!
