The Datsun 240Z was presented in the year 1969. In Japan the car was sold under the name Fairlady Z. The beautiful lines were drawn by Graf Albrecht Goerz who was also responsible for the magnificent design of the BMW 507. With the Datsun 240Z the factory hit bulls eye, the car became the best sold sports car in the seventies of the twentieth century. The British sports car builders like MG and Triumph did not see the 'bomb' falling... They were blown away from the important US market by the successful 240Z. The Datsun 240Z was build with a unitary bodywork structure, independent suspension all round, and powered by a smooth and powerful six cylinder in-line engine. The 240Z proved to be very robust and capable and it was successful in the rally competition In 1973 the 240Z was succeeded by the 260Z which was given a 2.6 Litre engine.
