DescriptionEdit

The Datsun 280ZX chassis was sold as the Nissan S130 , Nissan Fairlady Z and Nissan Fairlady 280Z, depending on the market. It was a sports coupé produced from 1978 to 1983. It was the second generation Z-car, replacing the Datsun 260Z/280Z in late 1978. The 280ZX was the first time where the "By Nissan" subscript was badged alongside the Datsun logo, along with Nissan trucks. The 280ZX was Motor Trend's Import Car of the Year for 1979. The 280ZX was replaced by the Nissan 300ZX in 1984.The 280ZX adopted suspension similar to that of the concurrent Bluebird 910, with MacPherson struts in front and semi-trailing arm independent in the rear.

The 280ZX's body was redesigned with aerodynamics in mind. By closing in the open grille of the first generation Z-Car and through other improvements taken from wind-tunnel testing, the drag coefficient was reduced from 0.467 to 0.385, and the lift coefficient from 0.41 to 0.14. The new design had a lower center-of-gravity and nearly 50/50 weight distribution in both two-seater and 2+2 designs. The rear of the car was stretched to accommodate a larger 80 L (21.133 US liquid gallons) fuel tank. Overall, the new body design gave better fuel economy and high-speed stability.

When fully upgraded, the 280Z can reach a topspeed of 208 mph with NOS and 178 mph without NOS, though in last gear/5th gear the speed can reduce over a certain period of time causing the car to automatically downshift into 4th gear when you're driving straight.
