Boasting around 180 bhp, the Nissan 280 ZX Turbo significantly outgunned its non-turbocharged sibling, which could muster only 145 bhp. This made for performance figures that were on a par with, and often even more impressive than, much more exotic and expensive cars. At the time, Road & Track magazine suggested that the 280 ZX Turbo could hit 0–60 mph in just 7.4 seconds. At the time, that was faster than an Aston Martin Volante and a Ferrari 308 GTSi, which could hit the benchmark in 8.9 and 7.9 seconds, respectively.

This 280 ZX Turbo spent much of its early life in Texas, before moving to new ownership in North Carolina, prior to its departure from the U.S. in 2015. Two years later, it was purchased by the consignor and exported to Switzerland. Even today, this 280 ZX Turbo can stand toe-to-toe with its contemporary rivals.

Mit einer Leistung von rund 182 PS setzte sich der 280ZX Turbo deutlich von der 145 PS-Variante mit Saugmotor ab. Die Fahrleistungen des Turbomodells übertrafen damals teilweise die sehr viel exotischerer und teurerer Fahrzeuge. Die amerikanische Fachzeitschrift Road & Track ermittelte damals einen Sprint von 0-96 km/h in nur 7.4 Sekunden, was den Nissan zu seiner Zeit schneller machte als einen Aston Martin Volante (8,9 s) oder sogar einen Ferrari 308 GTSi (7,9 s).

Dieser 280ZX Turbo verbrachte seine Anfangsjahre in Texas, bevor er nach South Carolina ging. 2015 wurde er aus den USA exportiert und 2017 vom heutigen Besitzer erstanden, der ihn in die Schweiz importierte. Selbst heute kann sich dieser 280ZX mit seinen damaligen Konkurrenten messen lassen.
