The Datsun 240Z was the first Japanese sports car to break into the American market and achieve a large volume of sales. The 240Z was designed by Albrecht Goertz and featured a long bonet with recessed round headlights. The roofline of the Datsun 240Z flowed gracefully into the taught rear arches and short rear end.

The Datsun 240Z was a superb handling sports car, helped by the use of Macpherson struts on all four corners. Inside the driver was offered an array of five guages, two large main dials for the tach and speedo directly behind the steering wheel, and three smaller dials above the centre console.

To this day the Datsun 240Z, and to a lesser extent the 260Z and 280Z, remain collectors favorites.
