The 2003 Nissan Fairlady Z/350Z (Z33) is a front-engined sports car that has appeared in all Forza main series titles except Forza Horizon and Forza Horizon 2, the latter of which instead features a pre-tuned variant of the car.

The Fairlady Z Z33, known as the 350Z outside of Japan, marked the fifth generation of Nissan's Z-car line. The 350Z was succeeded by the Nissan 370Z (Z34) in 2009.

Description

While the Nissan Z car, and in particular this JDM Fairlady Z, has always been definitively Japanese, it was the US that inspired the original, and in fact it was Nissan’s California design studio that came up with the shape of the Fairlady Z (known as the 350Z in North America). While its predescessors bulked up in weight and price over the years, the new Z takes things back to a familiar formula—stout V6 up front (with no turbocharging, by the way, to keep things simple), long hood and short deck proportions, and rear-wheel drive with independent suspension. In theory, that’s a lot like the original Z-car, but in execution the new Z is much better. Underhood is a large, 3.5-liter V6 that is part of the excellent “VQ” engine family, and it provides a serious amount of power—287 in total. Performance is thus sprightly, with 60 mph reached in just 5.8 seconds; but it’s the handling that really shines in the Z. An all new chassis referred to as “front mid-ship” places the front-mounted engine well back in the chassis, for superior weight balance and excellent performance. While ties to the historic Z-cars are there, the thoroughly modern Z represents a driving experience few coupes then or now can approach.

Characteristics

The Fairlady Z Z33/350Z is a front-engine, rear-wheel drive sports car designed by Ajay Panchal of Nissan Design America in 2000.

The 350Z comes with a 3.5L (3,498 cc) naturally aspirated VQ35DE V6 engine producing 287 hp (214 kW) at 6,200 rpm and 273 ft·lb (370 N·m) at 4,800 rpm. Available transmissions include a six-speed manual and a five-speed automatic, the former of which the Forza renditions of the 350Z use. The base coupe weighs 3310 lb (1501 kg), giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 11.53 lb/5.23 kg per hp.

Variants

The Fairlady Z/350Z has been featured in the Forza series in multiple variants:
