1978 Nissan Fairlady 280Z-L

A second-generation Z (S130), equipped with a 6-cylinder in line 2,758cc L28 engine was launched in August 1978 as the 280Z. Attracting interest was the new styling, which featured the traditional long nose and short deck, blended with sharper lines, while the grille-less front end enhanced the unified look of the body. Both the 2-seater and the 2/2 offered more spacious interiors, further improving comfort.
