A 2007 Nissan 350Z, revered as a drift king’s dream machine, has hit the Bengaluru used car market, priced at a hefty INR 30 lakh. This sleek coupé, which has traveled a mere 14,000 kilometers and is currently in the hands of its third owner, is stirring up quite the conversation among car enthusiasts and skeptics alike.
Netizens have taken to social media with their mixed reactions. One user, petrosexual46, humorously pointed out that for the same era, a Porsche could be acquired at almost half the price, quipping, “Lol…u can get a Porsche for INR 15-20 lakhs from 2007 now 😂😂😂.” Another user, rohinnagrani, highlighted that later models like the 370Z are available for much less, shedding light on the pricing dynamics of used sports cars.
The wit continued with _abhyudaya_singhh’s comment, who playfully dubbed the car as “Drift king’s car at donkey kong price,” while rakesh_arnav added a layer of intrigue by noting the seller’s reputation for owning over 50 similar cars. Suryansh08, however, brought a dose of reality, hinting that the car might remain unsold if the seller remains firm on the price.
The Nissan 350Z, also known as the Fairlady Z (Z33) in Japan, is a two-door, two-seater sports car that was manufactured by Nissan from 2002 until 2009. Designed by Diane Allen, with Ajay Panchal of Nissan Design America, the car was a direct inspiration from the 1998 240Z concept model. This model is known for its long-hood short-deck design, a trademark of the Z-Car family, and boasts a 3,503 cc, V6 petrol engine with 306 horsepower and 363 Nm torque.
With its rich history, unique design, and powerful specs, this 350Z is not just any car—it’s a piece of automotive history. But whether it will find a buyer willing to pay its premium price remains a question that only time, and perhaps a die-hard drift enthusiast, can answer.
