The Fast & Furious star will show his tribute to the East African Safari Rally winner at SEMA
This present journey around the sun stands for half a century because the Datsun 240Z– complete with knobbly tyres as well as spotlights– won the East African Safari Rally. Nissan itself mocked up a rally-spec Juke to commemorate, however Rapid & Furious celebrity and also overall cars and truck hero Sung Kang has totally overshadowed that.
Above is his DocZ project– an off-road restomod 240Z that’s totally influenced by that 1971 rally champion. It’s so great that Nissan is bringing it to SEMA to flaunt on its own stand. We can’t wait to see the finished write-up.
Nissan says that Kang’s 240Z was already a 1971 auto with an Eastern African Safari Rally homage livery, yet that it was broken down as well as filled with rust. It currently has an original L24 engine bored bent on 2.8-litres, with a custom head, three-way Weber carbs as well as a fancy custom exhaust. Evidently there’s “healthy and balanced quantities of horsepower and also torque”.
There’s new suspension and also brakes as well, as well as 16-inch wheels that are a tribute to the Kobe Seiko-style wheels that came on the Fairlady Z432. They’re dressed in proper beefy Michelins with an extra on the roofing system. Lovely things.
