Many months ago, Nissan asked their fans to help them create the ultimate 370Z track car. They called it Project 370Z. To put it to the test, Nissan fans were asked to vote for a challenger to compete against it. They chose a 1970 Datsun 240Z with an RB26 engine transplant built by Gordon MacSwain. On this episode of The Downshift, we head to Las Vegas Motor Speedway for an epic David vs Goliath battle between these two amazing machines.

The Downshift appears every other Tuesday on the Motor Trend channel.

Nissan’s sports automobiles always been profitable on the Western market and not just. So is definitely the Nissan Fairlady Z (name used in Japan) starting their first yr of introduction in 1970 right up until our days and nights. The Fairlady Z was sold within the US marketplace as Datsuns until 1984. The initially model in the Z-Cars series was the 240Z. Next Machine presented the 260Z, 280Z, 280ZX, 300ZX and previous one is 350Z. The Datsuns 240Z was unveiled in 1969 and the US industry was introduced 1970 by simply Yutaka Katayama, president of Nissan Power generators USA functions. The “Z” letter from name identifies the shift of the engine: the primary model -- the 240Z used a 2 . 4l engine; 350Z uses a three or more. 5 liters engine
