production Z Proto patents leaked

The Nissan 400Z 2022, a name that is not yet official, is a new sports car from the Japanese brand that is running to replace the 370Z. It will be derived from the Z Proto, from which it will inherit a design with retro touches and a V6 Twin-Turbo engine that will develop around 400 horsepower. It is not planned to have any type of electrification. Its presentation is estimated to take place this year or next.

The successor to the Nissan 370Z will presumably be called Nissan 400Z, and some details can already be advanced from him despite the fact that, according to Auto Express, it will not arrive until 2022. Rivals? The Toyota GR Supra.

The new Japanese sports car will be derived directly from the Nissan Z Proto, a ‘concept’ in which many variations are not expected once the production car is presented. This one, unfortunately, will not be sold in Europe.

NISSAN 400Z 2022: EXTERIOR

The design of the Nissan 400Z 2022 It will be a return to the roots of the car. A noticeable change from the 370Z image is expected. It will equip a front similar to the old one 240Z with a square grille and rounded headlights presumably with LED technology. It will also have details that remind you of its successors.

The first of the versions to arrive will be the coupe, although everything indicates that a year later at least there will also be a convertible variant.

Its silhouette has been seen for the first time in a video published by Nissan in which the model appears alongside others. Its profile appears to be thinner and slimmer than that of the 370Z.
