When it comes to Japanese sports cars, it’s impossible to overlook Nissan’s iconic Fairlady line-up which has combined timeless styling and awesome driving dynamics from day dot.
Arguably the most iconic of the bunch isn’t actually a Nissan, but instead a Datsun, and comes in the form of the Datsun 240Z, Datsun 260z, and Datsun 280z which was heavily influenced by Jaguar’s iconic E-Type in the styling department.
In Japan, this coupe was powered by a 2.0-litre engine, while America got a larger 2.4-litre six-cylinder (hence the name) growing to a 2.6 litre and then a 2.8 litre six-cylinder.
This fully restored Datsun 260z for sale (now homologated for European Roads) had 113kW from the inline-six that featured upgraded Weber carburettors, power steering and more powerful brakes.
On the inside, the interior was one of the most driver-focused that sports car fans had ever seen, with the now-iconic triple gauges taking pride of place in the centre of the dash.
This example that’s listed at Bavaria sports cars near Munich looks to have undergone a painstaking full restoration with over 1500 hours restoring original metal and parts, ranging from the rebuilt carbs to the immaculate leather interior, and the silver metal grey exterior.
Over the past few decades, Datsun S30 prices have handsomely appreciated, with some clean examples fetching more than $100,000 at auction.
Earlier this year, one of the GT-R-powered Z432 models managed to fetch $1.2 million at auction, making it one of the most expensive Nissans ever sold.
First registered in West Coast and now offered as fully Registered German car, this Datsun 260z is still a relatively new arrival, but is ready to hit the best roads our beautiful country has to offer.
