Dare to be different

Datsun 240Z

Following a couple of requests from the 911 video we posted last week here is the Datsun 240Z featured by Petrolcious late last year.

The 240Z is a classic sports car from a classic era for the genre. A time when rules were still being defined and expectations were still being explored. In many ways the legacy of a classic car can be measured by the number of times it is referenced by cars made well after the original hit the streets. Yep, the 240Z has a superb legacy.

We like this quote, first published by Car and Driver in 1970, which has been included in the video’s blurb:

“Datsun didn’t invent the overhead cam engine, or disc brakes, or independent suspension but it has a habit of incorporating these sophisticated systems into brilliantly conceived and easily affordable cars.”
