At the New York International Motor Show this year, Nissan unveiled the new Nissan 370Z Anniversary Edition to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Z performance line
Nissan has displayed the 37Z 50th Anniversary Special Edition at the New York Motor Show in the 50th anniversary of the Nissan Z performance line. Five decades ago, the first car of the Z line, the Nissan 240Z was also introduced for the first time at the 1989 New York Auto Show.
Nissan 37Z 50th Anniversary Special Edition is based on the 370Z Sport variant. At first glance, you might mistake this modern sports car for a vintage car due to the retro exterior. At the motor show, the white-red dual-tone version paint which is inspired by John Morton 1970s SCCA DRE 240Z was displayed. Apart from this, the 37Z 50th Anniversary edition also comes with a silver/black colour scheme. Especially, the red or black accent is featured on the hood, roofline and the boot lid. It will feature dual stripes on the side. Moreover, you will find red accents on the 19-inch lightweight aluminium wheels which subtly add a bit of sportiness and moderness to this retro-styled design. On this special edition, there is no place for the rear spoiler but instead, it will come with 50th-anniversary badges on the front and rear end.
Nissan 37Z 50th Anniversary Special Edition is launched at $32,690
On the inside, unlike the retro style outside, the interior of this special edition looks youthful with the all-black theme inserted by red accents throughout the cabin, like the red stitching, red stripe on the steering wheels and red accent on the gear knob. The 370Z special edition also gets premium design touch like the Alcantara upholstery on steering wheel, dark chrome elements, suede insert on the door panel, along with Anniversary embossment on the kick plates and backrests.

Mechanically, it remains the same engines and other settings. It is also powered by the same 3.7-litre V6 petrol engine which allows 327 bhp and 366 Nm. In terms of the transmission, the engine comes with the same 6-speed manual gearbox as standard along with an optional 7-speed automatic.
The anniversary edition is priced at $32,690, which is $2,600 more expensive than the 2020 370Z. The seven-speed automatic transmission is more expensive, rating at $37,670.
