Is the NEW 2022 Nissan 400Z a sports car worth the price?

1.1M views337

    The ALL NEW 400Z is highly anticipated by enthusiasts around the world and we are all hoping Nissan will deliver. The exterior of the new Z features plenty of styling clues taken for the 240Z, 280Z, and 300ZX. On the outside you will find 19in wheels, and massive rotors and calipers. On the inside you will be greeted by the tri-gauge pod on top of the dash, and all new infotainment system and 12.3in digital gauge cluster. Under the hood enthusiasts are hoping for a 3.0L twin-turbo V6, but the great news is there is still the availability of the manual transmission. Is the NEW 2022 Nissan 400Z going to be worth the price?

      Not gunna be 400z, thank god, so dumb to keep changing numbers, its confirmed to be simply the "Nissan Z", next best thing to calling it by its Japanese name "Fairlady Z"

    2. Kyle Magnuson

      Black out that silver trim and it's perfect.

    3. NAZIGOP PEDOtRump

      Front missing aero....???

    4. Kohan kye

      $35,000 converts to $45,000 aus But for some reason it will actually sell for $60,000. Damn Americans get cheap cars

    5. River Bons

      I hope the 400Z platform will be shared with Mitsubishi to make a FWD alternative under the Eclipse badge. Similar could be said with a GT-R being a 2 door Evo. I'm glad Nissan is coming out of it's shell with this! I'm hoping that at least we get some new non-Crossover BS from Mitsu but who knows..

    6. Harvz B

      The front and rear bumper looks boring.

    7. Karen Lewis

      You go over alot of details, but damn, you sound like such a sleazy car salesman

    8. angelisone

      Fire the car designer.

    9. TimmyTimmy

      Dear EU...FUCK you and your emission bullshit.. I wanna my 400z ..but we cant get it here in Europe.Only hope is import :D

    10. HoboFive0h

      Aye Nissan better hurry up before they join Pontiac 💀😂😂

    11. Voss

      that thing looks sweet, first of these new gen sports cars i can truly say. props to nissan 👏

    12. Mike Hotaling

      You are at Nissan, do I expect you to say it sucks or that you don’t like anything?

    13. eivis13

      That 12 inch screen looks nice, but can you pi (arduino) it?

    14. Kool-Aid Man

      Y’all are smoking crac get a scat pack and all your problems will go away!! Trust me you don’t need this bs

    15. -2SteppinShiba

      Now this is a fairlady, still doesn’t compare with the looks from the s30 and z31 in my opinion but they really pulled it off.

    16. NiGHTS1980

      I love the retro modern design. They have taken a lot of cues from the 240Z with the overall shape and tail lights. Love the interior design but the best thing is, turbo's are back! Finally!

    17. RastaD

      it may have been said already, but I think Fairlady is ready for primetime in America. The Bronco is ready to relaunch to the moon. We are tired of spreadsheet cars. While I may be shooting myself in the foot as a desirable buyer, I think the "Fairlady Z", along with a smart campaign, could recapture something America is wanting right now. But heck, give me a 400Z at $35000, and you already have a customer.


      AWD would'nt hurt it guys!

    19. Big.Mac.Blythe

      This will mark the end of the super thicc z's

    20. Big.Mac.Blythe

      "Its been a few years since the last redesign" Its going to be a whole DECADE bruh

    21. Fredy Vergara Show

      Ah yes

    22. Annon Skeete

      6 speed rwd and twin turbo v6, amazing.

    23. Hairy Prints

      3:13 looks like it’s a special version of the movie cars

    24. Seth S

      When it drives off it looks like the back of a mustang

    25. Arwand Rasheed

      Cant stop looking at the GTRs behind

    26. Art

      Is this the guy that says "I'm going to zonk his because I don't like..." if so Ive seen alot of the other videos.

    27. bliglum

      Always thought the 370Z greenhouse would've looked better blacked out... Finally the platform is reaching it's final form!

      1. Raiti's Rides

        This is so very true!

    28. ALEX A

      so fucking excited, even if I can't afford i.

      1. Raiti's Rides

        Starts at $35k

    29. Lin Xu

      looks good but i don't how i feel about the electronic dials, prefer the traditional rpm and mph dials

    30. Caius Wolf

      Was gonna get the new Supra but might hold off and try to get this Japanese beauty

    31. Greg Deep

      So clean 🔥

    32. Scortd

      the datsun 2021

    33. Bomb Chu

      Even though this Z has many classic designs/inspirations from older Z's, it looks much more modern than the current 370z. Already looks like a timeless design!

    34. Jeff Bustos

      We all know that Nissan has the worst transmission so what are you doing about that

    35. Master NY

      Sooo sad to see Nissan down to this point. All other car makers are show casing their production ready Icon Electric Cars, but Nissan is showing us a "Prototype" Z. This should be the Fully Electric Z car with 500 HP! Miss the old day Nissan :(

    36. Osvaldo Valencia

      I think is going to be 40k

      1. Osvaldo Valencia

        @Raiti's Rides have u add the sales tax on top of that? lol

      2. Raiti's Rides

        Actually starts at $35k

    37. DrSeckzytime

      $35k? 400hp/380ftlb? 6spd? Won't keep these cars on the lots for long, and would be a massive success story for Nissan if they can keep up production. Would become an enthusiasts king choice for sure.

    38. Amadexmilby

      "Its got a samurai sword that will cut up the competition" 😆😆

    39. jayr122001

      I like it in a metallic silver

    40. Michael D

      Nice, but the rear and tail light section is a bit bland. Could have been sportier looking.

    41. Crypto Elite

      I’m really surprised that so many people like the design of this Z. I’ve been a Nissan enthusiast for decades, had a 240 and 300 tt, drive an Infiniti now, have been waiting for the new Z and find the front very disappointing. So boring compared to the rear. I think Nissan made a mistake on this. I’d only consider bc of hp manual combo, it’ll probably be fun to drive.

    42. Stephen HENDERSON

      Love grill

    43. Noel Gonzalez

      I was bored with cars... until now. Damn it Nissan, TAKE MY MONEY.

    44. JUN_R33

      Joe I'm waiting for the Z probably a nismo version but my concern is I'm a tall guy 6'3" and I don't know if I fit inside there, I drove a Toyota a90 supra and I fit not very spacious but fit

    45. Colin Hawks

      I absolutely love this color!

      1. Raiti's Rides

        I am so glad that you like this one.

    46. Matthau San

      I want one.

    47. STU377

      Got to be one of the best 'bang for buck' sports cars.

    48. burningknuckle26

      Must cop

    49. Cody Beck

      I really hope they fixed the bugs on the infotainment system. My Platinum Murano and Platinum Reserve Titan both have issues.

    50. Andreas P

      nissan giving us a RWD fairlady Z manual and beautiful. WHAT YEAR ARE WE IN

    51. Yoshiy99

      Nice to see front doesn't have chrome V.

    52. Drop the Bombs

      In my opinion I'll go with mustang this time they did a great job

    53. alburht


    54. aadon003

      am I the only that thinks this car is hideous

    55. Vwrx Las vegas

      I wish I was stationed in Japan. I probably can get the JDM version of the Z!

    56. Fernando Men

      Se parece al Rayo McQueen.

    57. Red Ranger

      Not a big fan of the design. I had a 280ZX back in the day.

    58. TTYBO

      The front is pretty unsightly lol the rear is nice though...

    59. Sandweiler

      9:10, now I understand why it is Nissan Americas

    60. eriksven

      But is the six speed manual actually just a lever attached to Nissan's sportiest CVT yet?

      1. Raiti's Rides


    61. jiuyoo

      It looks like a fish

    62. FishtailZ

      I'm so glad my cryptocurrencies have been popping off just in time for this...

    63. Fahed Al-hashem

      Will this car come with the automatic gear option

    64. Samir Shetty

      Imma wait for the 420Z

    65. SlowCarsMedia

      Im trying my hardest to save up for this when it comes out

      1. ikanhiu

        all the best my g

    66. Theorist

      God this is perfect.

    67. Ron Mendoza

      Not only do you talk about the Z you actually show the Z. All the others just talk without showing the Z itself. Thank you!!!!!!!!

      Hard to watch his reviews... used car salesman esque

    71. street speed 613

      Hey that is a 2005 Mazda 3 vent on the door

    72. PorkchopExpression

      It looks so much better than the Supra. I remember me and my friends being excited about seeing the new Supra at the Detroit Auto Show a few years ago. We were pretty sad when we checked it out, huge disappointment.

      1. Raiti's Rides

        I know how you feel!

    73. MDB Bar

      Raiti nissan is getting me annoyed of not revealing any information or release on this z. Any ideas of when

      1. MDB Bar

        @Raiti's Rides do you mean details or release later this year as a guess.

      2. Raiti's Rides

        Later this year!

    74. Jacques H. Louis

      This is car is so beautiful Im leasing it and then buying it for sure if I dont end up in Supra

    75. Santino Jessie Avilapreslie

      Sorry man, it reminds me of a Cartoon Car.😥😣😎

    76. Bill Drone

      I love this car already so smooth looking and simple, I wanna check this car wen it get to the Dealer shop. I want Oceanic Blue color like my 86. good job Nissan

    77. Kim Jong Un

      I have to admit I was never really impressed by nissans but this car looks amazing, really hope it’s mid 30k like the speculations

      1. Raiti's Rides

        I agree with you!

    78. Dallas Stang

      Emoji face overload

    79. Igor G. Sena

      Sorry guys, i hated this car rear

    80. neonblack


    81. Devon Martin

      The answer is absolutly not, nissans arent worth the price they charge for anything, complete unreliable junk, with that said very sexy car! But other sexy cars with a better track record and price are out there

    82. visionsofpromise

      Now this is a masterpiece

    83. JKicks Type1 Video Clips, Vlogs, Streaming soon!

      so beautiful!!! oh em gee!!!

    84. Uriah Bleue

      Looks like a compact mustang

    85. B.E.Z

      It looks like all of them in one then just futurised

    86. HY

      Stunning beauty..

    87. Brian Reyes

      I hate the fact that the back looks like a mustang not Japanese at all just make it a straight long line going around the back if they connected it that would be so much more modern and better

    88. Brian Reyes

      Am I the only disappointed with the design like I really don’t wanna come here and be negative but man I’m trying to love it but I can’t

    89. LiftedX

      Here is some hate just to change things up in the comments. First, I love the minimal style, for 2010 standard. But the style is outdated for 2021 standards and looks very similar to last generation (which looked more aggressive with the Nismo or Amuse Bodykits). The chrome looks terrible as it does not flow with the rest of the car; the rear looks like it is a Dodge Charger wannabe (like, Thomas the Tank Engine saying "Hey I want to join you bad boys too") . The biggest caveat is that the car looks like it was value engineered...rather than an upgrade you got Renault (not Nissan) just trying to appease the "Z" fans with a lackluster product.

    90. Timothy Szabo

      Its very difficult to merge contemporary styling with retro styling cues and have it all work well together. Owners of early Z cars will find plenty if familiarity, judiciously applied with taste. This is a masterful design that manages to do it all and still have a unique character all its own. Bonus points for retaining the concept of the original- simple and light weight performance that you can actually afford to buy. Nobody cares how cool the car is if we can't afford to buy one and there's a reason the original 240 (like the Miata) had months long waiting lists of buyers. Hopefully the production car retains the soul of this concept.

    91. Matt Dixon

      Sorry, but it is boring looking; especially the ass end which used to look nice and fat. There needs to be more mix of hard and soft body lines. I'm also a sucker for purpose-driven air inlets. I will give them a big high 5 for not slapping a stupid table-style infotainment system on the dash like everybody else; good job! Make the exterior more appealing and I would consider it.

    92. MDB Bar

      But is it really a 2022 model?

      1. Raiti's Rides


    93. sen touji

      mh I like the prototyp, but prototyps are like games in development. You'll get promised heaven and get 0815 suburb 2 bedrooms ~

      1. Raiti's Rides

        Thanks for sharing that input!

    94. AnKa

      Can't wait to see this car modified.

    95. José Emiliano Ríos Fernández

      "you want 12 inches, nissan is bringing it to yall" lol

    96. First Name Last Name

      what Nissan needs to do is bring the 2door Nissan Sentra SE-R back !! Make it a 6speed manual, 300hp Beast !!

    97. chad rocca

      New price please?

    98. Horatio W

      Great video Joe and Lurie. This car is just what the Doctor ordered. Twin Turbo, RWD, Manual. I think it's going to do well, and mid-30s is a good price. Looking forward to seeing the engine bay and specs and your opinion on how it drives.

      1. Raiti's Rides

        Thanks for letting us share it with you!

    99. Henry Fung

      Looks like brz with a mix of mustang in the back. I never into yellow cars, I want to see in black, red or gray.

    100. iCon_xB2Gen Rich

      Piece of garbage Nissan
