The all-new Nissan ‘Fair Lady Z’, which made its big debut last August, has just been sold in Japan. There are five variants on offer and almost all are available with either a six-speed manual or a nine-speed automatic. Prices range from 5,241,500 yen (RM178k) to 6,966,300 yen (RM236k).

Later new Seiran Blue and Ikazuchi Yellow (seen here) paint colors are also available.
