Considered by many to be the best looking car Nissan ever made in this 2nd-generation configuration, the 300ZX was sold in Japan as the Fairlady Z, and as a 300ZX elsewhere.

Officially named the Z32, these cars came with a 2,960cc in-line 6-cylinder engine which produced 222hp. However! a twin-turbocharged version was available which made 300hp for a (speed-limited) top end of 155mph, as per other Japanese cars of the era under the "Gentlemens agreement".

During 1990, the Z-series cars hit sales of 1 million in the U.S., making it the best-selling sports car of the day.

  • I remember having one exactly like this. 2+2 model. No turbo but the V6 was still a nice torquey engine. Pulled well in most gears. Cramped interior for the size of the car tho. Nice pics. Nice spot. Nice late model too
