In this thrilling episode, the lads from TheStraightPipes take the 2024 Nissan Nismo Z for a spin on a drag strip. With a mighty 420 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque from its turbocharged V6 engine, this beast is ready to unleash its power. But the real question on everyone's mind is: how does the automatic transmission affect the driving experience?

Now, I must admit, I had my doubts about this automatic-only setup. I mean, who wants to lose that connection between man and machine? But to my surprise, the lads found that on those winding mountain roads, the Nismo Z handled like a dream. The shifts were smooth and precise, and even though it lacked the raw excitement of a manual, it still managed to deliver a thrilling driving experience.

But let's not forget the elephant in the room: the lack of a manual transmission. According to Nissan, it simply wasn't feasible due to engineering constraints and cost considerations. However, there is a glimmer of hope for us enthusiasts. If there's enough demand, they might just reconsider. So, if you're itching for that manual gearbox, make sure to let them know in the comments. Who knows, we might just see a manual Nismo Z in the future.
