Nissan’s second-generation 300ZX was introduced in 1989 and internally dubbed the Z32. Featuring much more rounded bodywork, it could be had in either naturally aspirated or twin-turbocharged format. The twin-turbocharged models made 300 bhp, which afforded a sprint to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. Nineteen ninety-six would be the last year of production for the model in North America, while production continued in Japan until 2000.

Finished in Ultra Red over a Black leather interior, this 1996 300 ZX Twin Turbo is undoubtedly one of the most original and low-mileage examples in existence. As listed on its original window sticker, it was delivered after final assembly in Los Angeles, California, to Streater-Smith Nissan of Conroe, Texas. Curiously, the car’s original Texas title shows that it was first issued to Neil H. Miller of The Woodlands in February 1999 with only 25 miles on its odometer, some three years after the car was built, listing the previous owner as Streater-Smith Nissan.

According to an accompanying CARFAX report, the car appears to have remained in Texas until 2016. An invoice on file shows that the last oil change was completed at Gerald Nissan of Naperville, Illinois, in October 2016 at 2,691 miles. The car was purchased by the current and only second private owner in 2017, showing just 2,719 miles.

Surely one of the lowest mileage examples extant, this Nissan Twin Turbo presents in incredibly original condition throughout. Finding another in such pristine condition would be akin to searching for a needle in a haystack, and as such, this 300 ZX should not be overlooked.
