MZR Sport-Edition

They look like very nice restomods but with a seriously hefty price tag!
For an £80 grand starting price I'm surprised that a lot of the suspension looks stock (tension rods and rear lower arms)!

Very nice bit of kit but for 80k you can get two 911 s and just watch the values go up,won’t happen with the Datsun but saying that given the choice I think I could make room for another 240

Its not the tension arms and rear lower arms that's going to seal the deal on these. I'd guess their target market doesn't want to see that sort of look/mod.

I think they look great...yes its a hefty price tag for us mere hobbyists...But to the audience these are being aimed at it'll be the cheapest car they have in the garage...and probably the cleanest.

The more people that buy there cars the more ours will go up in value too!

I just thought it was odd as they have changed so many other aspects of the car and kept them OEM.

Given that MZR have their own adjustable rear lower arms they must be one of the "bespoke options available" and aren't included with the on the 'base' model!

All positive for the marque.

For the price, I wonder how much people have paid at other Z specialists and then paid again to have them fixed/sorted ?

Mr James Taylor was way aheade of his time back in the late '80s then

I think the lower arms and tie rod geometry is perfect for a road car so why bother fitting adjustable versions. I have fitted fully adjustable parts to my blue car but certainly won't be using them on my other zeds which are mainly for road use. For the market they are going for it would be pointless and wrong to fit adjustable items.

If you want to alter it, there's much more sutble ways of doing it. Where parts are already setup and standard looking.

Is what they are doing to Z's a 'thing'? Are other companies doing it to other classics?.Is it some sort of art+technology?. What could £80K get you for an 'original' Z? What is the market for these cars?

These cars and original Zs share what? The shape ... can’t see what else. They can’t be compared to be honest.

There are a fair amount of companies doing classic 911s, Singer in the US is probably one of the best ones in my opinion!

There are a few in the UK too including:

MZR cars remind me of the singer style very much and with the 240z being such an iconic car, I can’t see the business being anything other than a success.
