The Nissan Fairlady 240ZG (also known as the Datsun 240ZG) is a rear-wheel drive sports car built in 1971, which was sold in Japan only. The 240ZG was a homologation model for Group 4. 240 stands for the engine displacement, whilst G is an abbreviation for Grande.

Its front (known as G-Nose) was available as an option. In comparison with the standard 240Z, it has a slightly different styling.

Games

Nissan Presents: Over Drivin' GTR

The Fairlady 240ZG appears in Nissan Presents: Over Drivin' GT-R, a localised Japan release of Road & Track Presents: The Need for Speed for Sega Saturn.

Need for Speed: World

The Fairlady 240ZG was made available in Need for Speed: World on October 19, 2011 as a tier 1 car. Since August 22, 2012 as a D class car.

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.
