What do you get when you mix Japan's burgeoning fortunes as an automaker in the 1970s along with a passel of frustrated racers? One of the first Japanese supercars, that's what. The Dome Zero's road to the 1978 Geneva Motor Show was paved with broken marriages, infrequent bathing schedules, and a nearly impossible deadline. It sounds like an episode of Monster Garage, now that we think about it. The wedgy, Italian-esque body evokes the finest work of the House of Nuccio. Power came from a Datsun inline six, offering a power to weight ratio on par with Porsches of the day.
