About “#The Beast”

The Z32 was critically acclaimed by many magazines as being a complete turnaround from the Z31, which many critics felt was a sloppy-handling GT, far from the agile, sporty 240Z of years past.

Motor Trend named the 1990 300ZXtt "Import Car of the Year".

Motor Trend also named it ?One of the Top Ten Performance Cars?.

Automobile Magazine honored the 300ZX as its ?Design of the Year? and named the 300-ZX Turbo to its ?All Stars? list.

Automobile Magazine also named the Z32 to its "25 Most Beautiful Cars" list in August 2006 and "20 Greatest Cars" in April 2006.

Road & Track named the 300ZXtt ?One of the Ten Best Cars in the World?.

Car and Driver named the 300-ZX Turbo ?One of the Ten Best Cars? for six straight years.

From the year it was introduced, it won many comparison tests against similar sports cars such as the Mitsubishi 3000GT/Dodge Stealth and the Mazda RX-7, as well as the Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Thunderbird, Toyota Supra and the Porsche 968.

RACING HERITAGE

From 1990 to 1995, as well as dominating the GTP category, now with a newly-designed chassis and engine, the 300ZX, which was campaigned by Clayton Cunningham Racing, was championed by Steve Millen in the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) and its GTO and GTS classes. He was ranked as the #1 Factory Driver for Nissan for 7 years, as well as two IMSA GTS Driving Championships and two IMSA GTS Manufacturer's Championships before the car became banished from competition altogether.

The Z32 also holds a land speed record in the E/BMS class. A joint effort between JUN Auto and Blitz was able to produce a 300ZX that reached 419.84 km/h (260.932 mph) at the Bonneville Speedway. This record remains unbroken.
