The All-New Nissan Z model kit

Tamiya USA - Mon, 08/01/2022 - 13:52

Today we have an ALL-NEW 1/24 scale plastic model car kit announcement! Say hello to the all-new Nissan Z! This is Nissan’s 7th generation model, and Nissan, which was announced in New York in August 2021 and its Japanese version in Tokyo in January 2022. Headlights and taillights are designed inheriting the first S30 model and the fourth generation Z32 model designs respectively – the Z features a car design theme which is a combination of tradition and cutting-edge technology – the silver color side roof frames from A pillars to C pillars are inspired by Japanese swords. Also, this car employs a 3-liter V6 twin turbo engine capable of 405hp inside of the S30 model-inspired hood, and has a choice of six-speed MT or nine-speed AT transmissions. The Tamiya model kit is expected to be available world-wide on November 20th!!
