Nissan 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition Gets a Retro Color Scheme

Nissan used the 2019 New York auto show to unveil the 50th Anniversary Edition of its 370Z sports car. The special model marks five decades since the original Z car, known in the States as the Datsun 240Z, made its U.S. debut in New York back in 1969.

Available on four trims including the Nismo, the 2020 Nissan 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition pays homage to the car's racing heritage. The two available exterior colors, white with red accents and silver with black accents, were inspired by the 240Z BRE (Brock Racing Enterprises) race cars that won numerous SCCA events. The anniversary models can be distinguished by a red- or black-painted hood and body stripes. The A-pillars, hatch, and part of the roof get the same accent colors. Completing the exterior design cues are 50th Anniversary badges on the front fenders and 19-inch Rays alloy wheels with red accents and shod in Bridgestone summer performance tires.

Inside, the tribute to the past continues with a pair of black leather sport seats featuring red piping, red contrast stitching, and inserts printed with a cool Z logo graphic. A "50th Anniversary" Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel with a center stripe, metal kick plates with the Z logo, suede-like door panel inserts, and a 50th Anniversary logo on the gauge cluster rounds out the 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition's interior.

Under the hood is the same 3.7-liter V-6 found in regular 370Z models, which can be mated to either a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic transmission. The engine makes 332 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque in most trims, or 350 hp and 276 lb-ft in the 370Z Nismo. Like the rest of the lineup, the 2020 370Z comes with an independent suspension setup and a limited-slip differential to help put the power down effectively.

The automaker also brought along a number of anniversary edition Z models from every generation, including the 280ZX, 300ZX, 350Z, and the 370Z. All of the heritage cars honored a past milestone anniversary, and featured unique styling cues and commemorative badges. Some even came with additional standard equipment like burgundy leather seats (280Z 10th Anniversary Edition) or a six-speaker Bose audio system (350Z 35th Anniversary Edition).
