Nissan Presents: Over Drivin' GTR
Need for Speed: World
It is comparable with the Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R C10 in the field of performance. The 240ZG is a nimble and light car that is capable of exiting corners quickly in a neutral driving behaviour.
The 2000GT-R turns somewhat better but accelerates slightly slower than the Fairlady. The nitrous boost of the 240ZG is nearly identical to that of the C10's, because of a decent power.
Shift 2: Unleashed
The 240ZG is only featured in the Legends Pack and Speedhunters Pack for Shift 2: Unleashed.
The standard version is included in the Legends Pack and featured with a performance index rating of D 140 and 2.53 handling rating. The Speedhunters Pack includes a Speedhunters Edition, which has a B 1160 index rating and 5.53 handling rating. Each of these vehicles can be bought for free in the car dealer.
The 240ZG in stock form can be useful for race events within its downloadable content pack. It is easy to handle in corners and accelerates faster than the C10 Skyline. The Speedhunters Edition reaches 191 mph (307 kmh) as top speed and goes from 0 to 100 kmh in 5.52 seconds. It has a higher top speed and better handling than the C10 Speedhunters Edition but also a less powerful acceleration for that.
