NISSAN BEGINS MARKETING 300ZX 2+2 SPORTS CARS

Nissan Motor Corp. said the manufacturer's suggested retail prices for the 300ZX 2+2 sports car, which went on sale Monday, is $28,500 for the five speed and $29,300 for the four-speed automatic.

Standard equipment includes a 3.0 liter DOHC 24-valve V6 engine producing 222 horsepower, anti-lock brakes and air conditioning. Options include leather interior, electronic equipment package, upgraded Bose Stereo sound system and pearlescent paint.Throughout the design process for the 300ZX 2+2, Nissan stylists concentrated on making it look as much like the two-seater as possible. The result is a silhouette that so closely resembles the two-seat version that only the location of the fuel filler cap readily identifies the vehicle as a 2+2.

Both the two-seater and 2+2 feature removable T-roof panels as standard equipment, continuing a Z-car tradition initiated with the 1980 280ZX.

The 1990 300ZX represents the fourth generation in a line of Z cars that traces its ancestry to the Datsun 240Z - launched some 20 years ago. A 300-horsepower, twin-turbo model is slated for a fall 1989 public introduction.
