Need for Speed: World

The Fairlady 240ZG was made available in Need for Speed: World on October 19, 2011 as a tier 1 car. Since August 22, 2012 as a D class car.

It is comparable with the Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R C10 in the field of performance. The 240ZG is a nimble and light car that is capable of exiting corners quickly in a neutral driving behaviour.

The 2000GT-R turns somewhat better but accelerates slightly slower than the Fairlady. The nitrous boost of the 240ZG is nearly identical to that of the C10's, because of a decent power.
