The Datsun 240K Skyline C210, produced between 1977 and 1981, stands as a significant chapter in the history of Datsun's technically sophisticated coupes. Introduced outside Japan in 1979, it was an updated version of the 240Z GT fastback, later succeeded by the 260Z and 280ZX models. It featured a 2.4-liter, 127 horsepower six-cylinder engine equipped with an electronically controlled Bosch fuel injection system made under license in Japan, incorporating a contactless ignition system driven by a transistorized amplifier. This setup provided modest but notable improvements in power, torque, acceleration, and fuel economy over older systems.Despite its innovations, the engine exhibited some issues, such as excessive vibration during hard acceleration and a sometimes abrupt throttle response at low speeds, making city driving less smooth than desired. The 240K's five-speed transmission was performance-oriented rather than fuel economy-focused, achieving a top speed of 110 mph. The electronic fuel injection ensured reliable starting even on cold mornings and relatively good fuel economy for its class, averaging 21.4 mpg.The 240K Skyline's design benefited from good handling and responsiveness due to a fully independent suspension setup, with MacPherson struts at the front and semi-trailing links at the rear, as well as front and rear anti-roll bars. The power steering, licensed from German ZF, offered a good balance of lightness for low-speed maneuvers and solidity at high speeds. However, the car had some limitations, such as reduced rear visibility due to wide, steeply raked pillars, and difficult access to the rear seats obstructed by seat belts.Another weak point was the servo-assisted disc brakes, which tended to fade under intense use, compromising safety in challenging driving conditions. Despite these flaws, the Datsun 240K Skyline C210 remains appreciated for its style, performance, and relative rarity today oai_citation:1,Datsun 240K Skyline C210.Additionally, the C210 model underwent an internal and external facelift in late 1978, changing the model code from 210 to 211. This facelift coincided with the model's introduction to several European markets. A significant addition was the turbo GT-EX L20ET engine, which, despite lacking an intercooler or blow-off valve, marked the introduction of the first turbo engine in a Japanese production vehicle. Available in various body styles, including sedan, coupe, and station wagon, and with a wide range of engines, this model offered performance and style in line with the era's expectations oai_citation:2,Datsun Skyline 1977-1981 (C210).
