    I like it too, nice he's updated the interior but kept the original wheel and put a Z logo in the centre too.

    I also like its blue and not the standard go to colour.

    Not bad. Always preferred the GT SWB though.

    Not usually a fan, but it's quite easy on the eye in that blue and interior is superb.

    It looks good from the outside.

    The interior is a mix of very good and bad. The cream leather is good but the dash is a right mix up. Modern black plastic dash from something, bits of aluminium and a centre console that looks out of place too (260 heater controls and modern radio).

    Bits of wiring showing on and under the dash - I wonder what the loom is like?

    Demisting could be an issue and no side vents.

    It's silly having the speedo out of view - these days you need to see the speedo easily.

    Engine sounds a bit 'iffy' being standard apart from the carbs which need to be hot to work. A car like that needs a good motor.

    Gearbox - shame it's not an S14.

    But it's one of the better ones.

    Why waste lines in an advert talking about the value of originals and alloy copies? It's a Datsun, not a single Ferrari part on it.

    I think the dash is specifically sold for 250 GTO replicas derived from the S30 chassis and retains some design elements from the original.
    Granted, the centre console looks out of place.
    The clock layout is similar and the speedo placement may even be a little better than the original in terms of visibility.

    But the originals were racing cars so the speedo wasn't important.

    I like Ferrari's that aren't red.

    But Im not a fan of the GTO replicas/tributes . I dont really see the point.
