Body Style: 2-door, 4-seat coupé
Engine: VG30DET 3.0L turbocharged V6
Power: 276hp
Torque: 296lb-ft
Weight: 1560kg
Transmission: 4-speed automatic

Additional Information: An extremely strange Japanese-Italian mashup, the delicately named Nissan Autech Zagato Stelvio AZ1 was a luxury coupe based on the Nissan Leopard (Infiniti M30), and cost so much to make that they only made 104 of the intended 203-unit run, and at an asking price equivalent to US$160,000. Or, to put it another way, about the same as two Honda NSXs. The interior was filled with Italian leather, Alcantara, and wood veneers, and the exterior was filled with ducts, bulges and integrated hood mirrors.

It has extremely divisive looks, that's for sure.
I love zagato, I really do but this looks so wrong and yeah, not their best work at all.

The design of this car is all over the place. From some angles, the Stelvio actually looks quite elegant, but from most other's it's a monstrosity. Definitely not one of Zagato's best creations, sadly.

Would much rather have this car over the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, though.

SZ for sure! This thing reminds me of something you might see in a japanese scifi flick of the era. Only it's real! Amazing! With a VG30DET? So good. The only shame is its auto only.
