Special edition Nissan 370Z celebrates 50 years of Z cars
Nissan launches retro-inspired 370Z in New York to mark half a century of Nissan performance models
The 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition has been unveiled in New York, with a paint scheme inspired by the SCCA-winning BRE 240Z raced by John Morton in the early 1970s.
The special edition is based on the 370Z Sport, one of four trim levels available on the Porsche 718 Cayman rival for 2020.
Buyers can choose from two retro-inspired liveries (white/red or silver/black), which feature a contrasting bonnet, wing mirrors, bootlid and roofline, alongside two signature racing stripes on each door.
Other bespoke design features include unique 19in lightweight aluminium wheels with red accents, rear spoiler delete and 50th anniversary badging on the front and rear bumpers.
Inside, the 50th Anniversary Edition receives an Alcantara-clad steering wheel with motorsport-inspired centre stripe, 50th Anniversary-embossed kick plates and backrests, and suede door panel inserts.
A Bose sound system is equipped as standard to 370Zs specced with the celebratory trim, as are dark chrome interior trim accents, four-way power seats and high-intensity xenon headlights.
A close-ratio six-speed manual gearbox is also standard fitment, but buyers can opt for a seven-speed automatic which boasts a target shift time of under 0.5 seconds.
Power output is unchanged from the standard 370Z, which features the same 3.7-litre V6 petrol engine producing 323bhp and 270lb ft.
