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 engine displacing three litres, a decent handling chassis boasting five link independent rear suspension and radical new bodywork that retained the signature Targa roof. 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, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, handbrake lever and gear knob gave the car a quality feel in keeping with the hefty price tag.
This UK specification 300 ZX was originally registered in the UK to the The Sultan of Brunei and is identified on his inventory of cars. As with most of his cars, they were purchased to look at and were very rarely used. Supplied in the UK and sent to Brunei, according to the shipping documents this example returned to the UK in 2006 and has been used sparingly by its owners who obviously have an appreciation for classic Japanese styling. To be expected, the V6 engine burst into life when requested and ran smoothly. We are advised H92 XYV drives very well with no known faults, the twin turbo engine produces300bhp and a top speed of 155mph. The traditional front engine and rear wheel drive layout, combined with the twin turbos make this an exciting car to drive. It was last serviced by Powerzed in February 2021 which included a replacement belt and tensioner, together with a new water pump and hoses. New front and rear discs and brake pads were fitted at the same time, the invoice totalled £1,593. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 8th February 2022, this is surely one of the lowest mileage 300ZX’s available anywhere in the world today. Given the eye-watering prices being achieved by the Toyota Supra, this Nissan has strong investment potential.
