The Samuri Motor Company, who in the early 70s, built modified 240 and 260Zs for sale as turn-key offerings. Spike Anderson. having trained at Broadspeed in the 1960s working on Minis and Anglias, he went on to set up his own business called Race Head Services and one of the first cars to benefit from his experience was a humble Datsun 1200 from which he managed to extract 105bhp! This was the first car to carry the “Samuri” name, a deliberate mis-spelling as the ‘Samurai’ trade name was not available. Having bought a standard 240Z, it wasn’t long before it was taken apart and put together faster. Very much faster. A UK car magazine published a glowing review of Spike’s personal car, and the next thing he knew, the Samuri Motor Company was born, offering modified Zs and performance parts to the buying public. Spike and the Samuri name are also notable for the all-conquering, “Big Sam” 240Z full race car! The 260Z was upgraded from the standard 140hp to 200hp along with many other performance enhancing upgrades.
