That Datsun looks dreadfully uncomfortable.
The seats in the 240z are actually surprisingly comfortable, but I still have the webbing seat belts in mine which where obviously fitted as a form of torture!
Interesting road test, however very misleading! I actually own both a Leaf and a 1973 240Z so can speak from factual knowledge. The Leaf will do 0-60 in under 8 seconds, not the 10 seconds shown in this video. The Leaf only does 0-60 in 10 seconds when it is driven in ECO mode. Come on, do a fair comparison! Don't get me wrong I love my Datsun, but the Leaf will out accelerate it from the line but will lose out when things hot up because it will only just manage 100mph after a very long drag.
You brought a Leaf?
Oh yes! 16,000 miles in 2 years which cost a grand total of £270 in electricity. Leafs are no good for most people, but they are great if they fit your lifestyle.
