240Z styling was taut, sleek, and targeted to the expectations of the sports car market. It had a long hood, following the tradition of classic prewar sports cars as well as what was found on desirable postwar types such XK120 and E-Type Jaguars. As a result, the driver's head was aft of center and the entire passenger compartment and trunk occupied only 60 percent of the car's length. The roofline dropped off to the rear, terminating at a vertical Kammback. In true postwar sports car fashion, the fenderline featured a kickup towards the rear, hinting at the existence of a rear fender. Along the sides was a horizontal character line at doorhandle level. Headlamps were semi-sunken into the front fenders, but laterally; this allowed for a fenderline ridge that blended into the hood ensemble. The grille was small, horizontal bars angled away from the sun (lack of reflection reducing visual prominence) and set into a simple opening.
