Designed well and truly in the 1960's the Datsun 240Z is almost the epitome of sports car design. Light, small and elegantly designed the Datsun 240Z was a simple format of light weight, power and great handling. The '240' used the L series Datsun 2.4 litre engine.
Nissan Zed cars are a long tradition of sports orientated vehicles, although the 280ZX and the first two incarnations of the 300ZX saw Nissan thoroughly losing their way with overweight, underpowered boulevard cruisers. Finally Nissan saw the light again with the 350Z and the excellent 370Z.
