Car enthusiasts in the US are still waiting for the official price for the 2023 Nissan Z, with full price details and availability information for the sports car recently announced in Australia. Also, an online configuration for the car has been launched.
Two variants of the 2023 Z Coupe are available in Australia; Base model and flagship Z Proto. The base model is priced at AU $ 73,300 ($ 50,276), although that price increased to AU $ 80,092 ($ 54,935) including all on-road costs. The price is the same whether buyers choose six-speed manual or nine-speed ‘auto’. Prices for both the manual and the Auto 2023 Z Proto start at AU $ 80,700 ($ 55,352), or AU $ 87,862 ($ 60,264).

Although the Z Proto is being marketed as a flagship model, it does not offer the opportunity for personalization with all the examples finished in Ikazuchi Yellow with a super black roof. So, if yellow is not your thing, you need to start with the base model and configure it.
There are nine color options available for the 2023 Nissan Z in Australia, with only three single-tone options including Rosewood Metallic, Diamond Black Metallic and Song Metallic. All other paint options include a Super Black Roof and include Brilliant Silver, Boulder Gray, Cyran Blue, Passion Red, Everest White and Icazuchi Yellow. The black wheel is the only option.
Only two internal configurations are available. You can either decorate the cabin entirely with black leather or, instead, contrast with the dark red accents with black leather, the latter of which we have chosen to create our standard Z.
Regardless of the variant that Australian buyers choose, all 2023 Z Coupe models feature an infinity-sourced twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 that pumps 400 hp and 350 lb-ft (475 Nm) of torque. The engine can be combined with a six-speed manual transmission or a nine-speed automatic transmission with an aluminum pedal shifter to drive the rear wheels.
