Bare and without any coverings whatsoever.

A lot of people are excited about the upcoming Nissan Z. After all, it’s the continuation of the legendary Z-line of cars, the first of which made a large statement in the 1970s with the introduction of the Fairlady Z.

As you might already know though, Nissan has been keeping the upcoming Z car’s development a tight kept secret. We know how the Z Proto looks of course, but that’s just a prototype.

A couple of days ago, however, an Instagram account named Nissan Arabia posted a short video of the production model Z car without any covers whatsoever. The page even posted shots of the car’s interior. The pictures in question were taken in the United States when the car was being shipped.  

Another was a TikTok post by @laidoutdc4 outright calling it the 400Z. In this video, the interior of the car appears to have three gauges on top of the dashboard, and an automatic gear selector. According to Nissan though, a manual version will be available. The interior also has more plastic than the Z-Proto, but it does show a very modern interior design overall.

From the still images posted by Nissan Arabia, we can see that Just like the original Z, the new car bears a very aggressive roofline and a pair of upswept headlamps. It also doesn’t depart that much from the Z Proto as it also bears a large square-shaped grille.

What’s different is that the so-called production model has more pronounced lines especially on the front lower bumper. The grille also gets chrome or silver highlights, and its sides bear what appears to be red-colored side-marker lights.

According to many previous reports, the upcoming Nissan Z-car will be using a 3.0-liter V6 engine capable of making up to 400 horsepower. That figure isn’t set on stone yet, because there are rumors that it might be capable of making more.  

Do note the official reveal for the Nissan Z-car is yet to be announced by the Japanese car-maker. We reckon though that it’s just around the corner. For that, stay posted here on
