The first allocation of Nissan's Z NISMO has sold out, with online orders opening for less than an hour as Z fans rushed to secure their vehicle.

Strictly limited to 100 vehicles in its first delivery run, the new Z flagship was first offered to those already awaiting delivery of a Z or Z Proto, with those customers given the opportunity to change their order. The 50 remaining vehicles were then able to be reserved at from 11am AEST this morning, August 10.

It took just 11 minutes for the first 22 vehicles to be reserved, and by 11.30am a total 40 Z NISMOs had been allocated. The remaining 10 vehicles in this delivery run were reserved by 11.53am.

Customers were able to build their Z NISMO online, personalising their vehicle's colour by choosing from Black Diamond Metallic, Brilliant Silver with a Super Black roof, Everest White with a Super Black Roof, or Stealth Gray with a Black roof.  Customers were then asked to nominate the Nissan dealer they wish to purchase the vehicle from, and place a reservation fee of $1000 AUD to offer to purchase their Z NISMO. Reservation terms and conditions applied.

Given the strictly limited vehicle numbers, payment of a reservation fee does not guarantee purchase of a vehicle and the fee is fully refundable prior to signing a contract of sale. Reservations were limited to one per customer, and third party resellers were not eligible.

It's the first time a Z vehicle has been able to be specified and reserved online, with the system to work in partnership with Nissan's dealer network, which will assist in preparing and delivering every vehicle.

Successful customers will be contacted by their nominated dealer shortly to confirm their purchase the flagship new vehicle.

"The excitement surrounding the entire Z range has been fantastic, and it just goes to show there's still a real appetite for performance in Australia," says Nissan Australia Managing Director, Adam Paterson.

"The new Z NISMO reaches new performance heights for this incredibly iconic nameplate, and I'm excited for our customers to experience it for themselves."
