Default Pics : Gray / Yellow Nissan Fairlady 300ZX

Hi guys,
Just spotted a silver (or shud I say gray) Nissan 300ZX in andheri. The car looked amazing. It was too too good looking to be a refurbished one. My guess is it's a fresh import. The car had Borbet alloys. I've never heard of that name before but just checked out Google and found that they've been in the wheel business since 1887. Anyways the car had 16-in (i think) Borbet Type S wheels. I guess thats what made the car look low and sporty. It also had an aftermarket front and side skirt. Interiors were pretty good and there was no sign of any wear tear or signs of being done up. Also had a 12-in Titanium sub-woofer facing the rear *

Borbet Type S Alloy:

I love the 300ZX!! Just something very appealing about Japanese sports cars. The only let-down with the 300ZX is the lack of audio from those meaty looking 4 pipers!

Its an early 90s model.Was for sale with my dealer a month back for around 6lacs.Seen the car,did'nt like the initial appeal at all.Lacks that punch.Its not that well maintained.

hey x-machine, the car is definitely very well maintained. well i can say that for the exterior and interior. they looked damn clean. Also managed to take a video of the car trying to avoid a very bad patch of road but still manages to scrape the front a bit

That yellow 300 ZX is a lemon. That car has been going from dealer to dealer but not getting sold. Heard from sources there is something wrong with it
