Rare un-modified Datsun 260Z goes under the hammer

Darren Cassey

Classic car auctions are a great place to see rare exotic metal going under the hammer for ludicrous sums, but sometimes enthusiasts will spot something special that doesn't command an extortionate fee.

This 1978 Datsun 260Z is a perfect example of that. The Japanese sports car is only estimated to go for between £18,000 and £22,000, but finding an un-modified example in such good condition is very rare.
