As generations of enthusiasts the world over have come to appreciate, the 510 (called the Bluebird in its home market) isn’t just another early Japanese economy sedan—it is an excellent driver, as well. That isn’t just a happy coincidence. The 510 was already largely designed (with the sheetmetal penned by Teruo Uchino in Japan, not Pininfarina as its predecessor the 410 had been) when Yutaka Katayama caught wind of the project and used his forceful personality to change the direction of the project. As the head of Nissan’s US operations, the bona fide car enthusiast and eventual “father” of the 240Z got on the nerves of his comrades back in Japan by loudly asking for a performance motor to find its way into the diminutive sedan. His persistence paid off when Nissan merged with Prince Motor Company, bringing with them the Prince family of advanced SOHC engines (related to the units found in the early Skyline GT-Rs and later Z-cars). The engineering trickled down to the 510 project, and the 1.6-liter that resulted produces 95 horsepower and 100 ft-lbs. of torque. Considering the 510 weighs barely more than a ton, it’s quick by the standards of the time. When the 510 hit American shores badged as a Datsun, it offered buyers a unique combination of features at a low price, undercutting the BMW 1600-2 (a car with very similar specifications) by nearly a fifth of the BMW’s price. The 510 is also famous for its highly successful career in SCCA racing with the Brock Racing Enterprises team, paving the way for acceptance of Japanese performance cars. History aside, it won’t take long behind the wheel in-game to reveal the stock car’s many charms, but the “Dime” really shines in the Upgrade Shop—the robust 510 was heavily overbuilt and is therefore happy to accept significant modifications.
— Official description [1]

The 1970 Datsun 510 is a RWD sedan by Datsun or Nissan[2] featured in Forza Motorsport 3 and all subsequent main series titles. It appears in Forza Horizon as part of the February Jalopnik Car Pack.

Synopsis

The Datsun 510 is a compact car sold by Nissan's export brand Datsun from 1968 to 1973. It was designed as a competitor to the BMW 1600 by offering sporting handling characteristics for a lower price. The 510 was also available with a strong factory racing support that allowed it to earn motorsport victories in numerous championships.

The 510 is powered by a single overhead camshaft (SOHC) litre engine with 96 hp (72 kW) and 100 ft·lb (136 N·m) designed by Prince Motor Company.

Although it is modestly powered for modern standards, the 510 offers a well-rounded chassis incorporating MacPherson front struts, a semi-traling arm rear suspension, front disc brakes and a weight of 2127 lb (965 kg). This makes the 510 along with the Datsun 2000 Roadster, which is barely heavier than the 510, the lightest Nissan car from the 1960s and 1970s production decades.[3]
