The venerable Nissan 300 ZX/Fairlady Z was certainly one of the most popular sportscars to ever be manufactured in Japan. Stylish, fast and mostly affordable, there was no wonder it became the car of choice for so many. In twin turbo guise, the 3.0 liter DOHC V6 pumped out a respectable 300 horsepower, good for taking the car right up to it's electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph. The twin turbo model also featured active 4 wheel steering, which Nissan dubbed "Super HICAS" for "High Capacity Actively Controlled Steering," quite an innovation for this price point.

Nissan began production of the second generation 300ZX in 1990, and while sales in the US ended in 1996, production of the much-loved car continued for the Japanese domestic market until 1999. Top black car featured above is a rare "Version R" rendition of the Fairlady Z, which featured Recaro seats.
