Description

The Custom Datsun 240Z is an customized version of the Datsun 240Z with Rocket Bunny-branded widebody kits applied and engine and structural work by GReddy.

Known as the Fugu Z, its real-life version is owned by Sung Kang, the actor who portrayed Han in the Fast and Furious series, and serious auto enthusiast. In Fall 2015, the Fugu Z made its debut at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas where it won the coveted 2015 Gran Turismo Best in Show Award.

This casting is the latest version of the Datsun 240Z as of 2017, Hot wheels having produced the US-Spec model first in 1978 as the Z Whiz, and another casting the Datsun 240Z in 2006. In 2016 the Nissan Fairlady Z was launched by Hot wheels, portraying a JDM version.

  • The 2018 release was modeled after Jun Imai's Neo Kaido 240Z and it was installed with Borla Exhausts, hence the decal on the hood.
