The award acknowledges the wide enthusiast base for the Nissan Z and the extensive number of customized, aftermarket-modified Z sports cars of all generations on display at SEMA this year. Nissan sports cars have inspired fans to tweak, tune, race and customize for decades, with the seventh-generation Nissan Z continuing to fuel that passion.

Nissan’s Thrill Street exhibit at SEMA in the Las Vegas Convention Center West Hall, booth #52141, showcases a wide range of production and concept vehicles, including the 2024 Nissan Z NISMO, a Safari-style Z concept vehicle and a replica of the Datsun 240Z rally car that helped cement the Z’s place as a sports car icon with its victory in the 1971 East African Safari Rally.

The Nissan Z doubles down on thrilling performance for the 2024 model year with the return of Z NISMO, delivering an exhilarating experience for enthusiast drivers. Z NISMO features 420 horsepower and numerous handling, braking and chassis enhancements that elevate its performance on the racetrack.

The 2024 Z Sport and Z Performance continue to offer buyers options to configure a Z that suits their driving style. A standard 3.0-liter V6 twin turbo engine rated at 400 horsepower is mated to a six-speed, close-ratio manual transmission with Exedy® high-performance clutch as standard, or a responsive nine-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The 2024 Nissan Z has a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP)1 of $42,210, with Z NISMO starting at $64,990.
