A car that made an indelible impression on your youth, a car from an age that seems to inform all of your adult opinions, one that has survived the fickle ravages of time and taste and a car that landed on this planet with a wallop.
With wide-eyed headlights, unmistakable, sporting curvy wedge styling; commanding but never aggressive and modest but still somehow stealthy mixed with a techno-paradise interior of lasers and blinking digital displays that wraps around its occupants like a fighter jet cockpit - one of Japans best ever performance cars the Nissan 300ZX went toe to toe with Corvettes, 911’s and Supras, often coming out on top.
The 300ZX also went racing, indelibly successfully with Kiwi Steve Millen at the helm and along with a win at Le Mans, Millen and the Nissan 300ZX racing machine won Sebring and several other races, like the 1994 24 Hours of Daytona and the overall 1994 IMSA GTS Championship.
In 1995, to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the original 1970 Datsun 240Z sports car, Nissan released the “Steve Millen Edition Z32 300ZX”. Limited numbers were built with Australia receiving just 40 cars.
Nissan Australia built the 40 Anniversary versions using stock vehicles modified with a parts package supplied by Millen that included ultra-light-weight Stillen alloy wheels, an aggressive body kit with new rear spoiler, front bar and rear bar as well as Steve Millen signed 25th Anniversary badging. The car cost an eye watering $92,995 new.
Offered here is a genuine, Australian delivered Steve Millen Edition Z32 300ZX in original Sapphire Blue delivered new in August of 1995 by Parry Nissan, Townsville and travelled just 95,000 kilometres.
Retaining all of its correct special features including the badges, alloys and body kit this very original and rare car has been kept absolutely meticulously well.
Along with its complete set of original log books with Nissan stamped service history, owner’s manuals, radio code tag, both factory keys, bill of sale as well as magazine articles featuring the exact car and original brochures, top-to-tail from the velour trimmed wrap-around dash to the seemingly untouched switch gear that never loses its novelty, original stereo and even the original Koito tail light lenses this 300ZX Anniversary Edition would have to be one of the finest and most original of its breed.
What AutoCar called “The world's most thoroughly modern sports car," in its October ’89 review the 300ZX is a car that appeals to those who know what it is. It’s a car that can speak to you, even if you've never driven it.
Add to that the super low production numbers of a special edition, time machine like condition and low kilometres as well as a history dossier to rival an Oxford library this 25th Anniversary Steve Millan Z32 300ZX is something incredibly collectable. It won’t last long.
