1985 Nissan Fairlady Z 200ZG

The third-generation Z (Z31) was launched in 1983, the same year as the Fairlady production total passed 1 million units. Unlike the 2.8-liter, the 3.0-liter model was the first in Japan to use a V6 turbo engine and attracted much interest. Its beautiful silhouette, boasting a drag coefficient (Cd) of 0.31, and its unique parallel-rising headlights were very popular.
