Another special Nissan 370Z debuts with red/white body, Rays alloys
As you may remember, the first sports car of the Nissan Z family – the Fairlady Z, also known as the Datsun 240Z in North America – came out exactly half a century ago. To celebrate this, the Japanese carmaker announced the 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition at the 2019 New York International Auto Show.
The livery of the vehicle seems strongly inspired by that of the 1970 Datsun 240Z racecar that the Brock Racing Enterprises used to drive to many victories in the SCCA racing series. By the way, the street-legal modification of the car also debuted at the New York Motor Show fifty years ago.
Aside from the unique red-and-white paint, the limited edition is available in silver with black inserts. Both come based on the 370Z Sport, but the company removes the rear spoiler to make the car look more like its ancestors.
Normally, the series comes powered by the standard 3.7-liter V6 engine rated at 337 hp (251 kW) and 366 Nm (270 lbft) of torque. But if you wish, you may get your copy with the engine boosted to 355 hp (265 kW) and 374 Nm (276 lbft) of torque. Both are available with a six-speed manual and a seven-speed automatic transmission.
Listed features include Rays alloy wheels, Xenon headlights, and a high-end audio system with a couple of subwoofers and plenty of satellite speakers.
