Those of the three 350Zs that Nissan will be displaying at Goodwood will be getting little peace, such will be the demand for a taste of the car’s driving position. Likely to get similar attention, especially given the classic car oriented Goodwood audience, is a 1971 240Z that Nissan GB has had literally remanufactured to coincide with the launch of the 350Z. The car was painstakingly constructed by craftsmen at the Z Farm in the North East, one of the world’s best known 240Z specialists. It’s the classic that started the Z phenomenon and still looks fantastic today.
Nissan is also using the Goodwood Festival of Speed as an opportunity to meet some of the hundreds of customers who have placed a deposit on a 350Z. They’ve been invited to the Festival with a partner or friend for what will likely be their first chance to touch and sit in the dream car that they have been waiting so patiently for. And if they simply can’t wait to drive a 350Z, remote control 1:10 scale 350Zs will be on sale at the Nissan stand to steer around the patio at home.Published 28 June 2003
