The incoming Nissan 400Z has been snapped in what appears to be final production guise, with the Toyota Supra hunter looking just about ready to rock and roll.

The images, which were reportedly, shot at Nissan's Tochigi factory and were first published by fan forum, the 400z Club, show a sleek exterior largely unchanged from the prototypes we've seen to date, and a tech-heavy cabin headlined by a completely digital driver's display.

The steering wheel, you'll notice, is on the left-hand-side of the cabin, meaning it's not one of ours, but the wheel does frame a digital screen that fills the driver's binnacle, and that sits alongside a second media screen - seemingly to control the car's audio - that is angled upwards.

Where you might expect the multimedia screen to be fitted - perched atop the dash - is instead twin performance dials, hinting at the Zed's sporting pedigree. You'll also have noticed, I'm sure, that this one is an automatic, but reports point to a manual option being offered, too.

The rear looks a lot like the concept we've been shown, with old-school 300ZX-style lighting and twin exhaust tips positioned at opposite ends. This car - a grey-on-black example - makes masterful use of the twin-tone colour palette.

The two-tone theme continues up front, where the blacked-out grille has been replaced by a chrome number, and one that looks vaguely terrifying - in a good way - in pictures.

Just when the 400Z will arrive in Australia remains a mystery, but Japanese press has pointed to a global unveiling in May, so time will tell.
