Nissan 370Z Replacement To Get Twin-Turbo V6 Says Report
The Nissan 370Z replacement is expected to go on sale in the next couple of years and now a new report from Autoblog says we can expect it to pack a twin-turbo V6.
Nissan dealer sources in the US, who have reportedly seen the new model, told Autoblog the next-generation Zed car (rumoured to launch in 2021 or 2022) will use a version of the twin-turbo 3.0-litre V6 from the Infiniti Q50.
Currently, this engine is only available with a seven-speed auto in the Infinitis however a manual option may be available for the new Nissan sports car.
In the Infinitis, the V6 produces 400 hp (298 kW) and 475 Nm of torque which is actually a nice jump from the current 3.7-litre naturally aspirated V6 which develops 329 hp (245 kW) and 363 Nm.
A more potent Nismo version is also reportedly in the works and could produce around 500 hp (372 kW).
Back in 2018, Nissan showed a one-off 370Z at SEMA (seen above) which used a twin-turbo 3.0-litre V6 and six-speed manual but it never reached production.
