The Datsun 280Z can almost be considered the Japanese Corvette. It had the right shape for its time, independent four-wheel suspension, rear-wheel drive and also had lots of comfort features.
But its 138 hp engine was pretty underpowered for its rivals. But now, thanks to Toyota, this little highway fighter can be properly powered with a 2JZ engine from the legendary Supra.

Also, removing all the unnecessary stuff inside and putting some beefy tires at the back will turn your Datsun into a pro-street drag car. Like this one we found recently on Youtube.

Just hit the play button bellow and see what this 280Z does to a 830 hp Mitsubishi Evo IX. There is also a bonus race towards the end of the clip.
