First up is the hotly anticipated Nissan Z. The good news is that both transmission optionssix-speed manual and nine-speed automaticwill be available, and they both will go for P3,888,000.

Underneath the hood is a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine (VR30DDTT) that sends 400hp and 475Nm to the rear wheels in traditional fashion, with a limited-slip differential. It also comes with the Nissan Intelligent Mobility suite of safety features.

It will be available in six colors: Passion Red, Ikazuchi Yellow, Seiran Blue, Everest White, Boulder Gray, and Black Diamond Pearl. The sexy two-seater comes rolling on staggered 19-inch wheels by Rays, and taps into the heritage of previous Z designs in areas such as the grille, the bumpers, the lights, and the silhouette.
