Few Japanese cars are some-more iconic than a Datsun 240Z (Nissan Fairlady Z in Japan) and even fewer engines from a Land of a Rising Sun are as fascinating as a RB26. Bring a dual together and we have a makings of a automobile so cold that it creates Italian supercars seem tedious and common.
Marty and Moog from Mighty Car Mods in Australia are now doing only that and a build is only too epic for us not to share.
The twin didn’t creatively intend on creation a Skyline R34 GT-R-powered Datsun 240Z. In fact, after a sports automobile was purchased from Japan, it was going to be shipped Down Under and easy with a bureau powertrain. However, despotic quarantine laws in Australia done this unfit due to a asbestos found in a strange underpinnings.
As a result, a car’s engine, transmission, and brakes had to be private and left behind in Japan. This non-stop adult a probability of mating an equally-as-iconic engine into a 240Z’s elongated engine bay.
Rather than formulating a 1000 hp beast that’s totally obsolete on a street, Mighty Car Mods are instead looking to build a automobile that combines performance, refinement, and fad though attracting neglected attention.
The build is still ongoing though 3 videos detailing a initial modifications have been released. They are good value watching.
