Nissan 370Z Commemorates 40th Anniversary of 240Z

nissan_370z_40th_anniversary_generations
Nissan has just announced that a special edition model 370Z to commemorate 40 years of the Z-car. Although the Datsun 240Z we all know and love was introduced on October 22, 1969, the Nissan 370Z 40th Anniversary Edition will go on sale sometime next spring for an as of yet undetermined price.

The basis of this special edition will be your standard issue 370Z Touring model, equipped with the 3.7L twin-cam V6, 6-speed SynchroRev manual and Sport Package, and adds an exclusive “40th Quartz” paint job and red leather interior. Oh, and copious 40th Anniversary badging, naturally.

Nissan draws (somewhat loose) connections between this car and the 240Z in its press release, comparing luxuries like the 370Z’s laundry list of electronic gewgaws to indulgences like roll-up windows and an actual in-dash radio found in the 240Z. Hey, that was high-end stuff at the time! And the press release even gives a shout out to Mr. K’s and his recent 100th birthday.

    So they aren’t gonna whore it out like the Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger?

    Dang, I would love a 370Z Black Gold Edition complete with fake handlebar mustache and disco suit.

    I saw a sad Black Gold 280Z on the side of the road last night, beaten and battered but man is it classy. Wait……. no….

    At least they pay attention to there heritage a little. Too bad part of the package is not a better looking front bumper cover!

    itd be nice if theyd do them like the 80s style like the giant side anniversary decals or somthin. like the one that was on this blog not that long ago on the “kidney anyone” blog with the gold Z.
    colors like that would be nice.
    i think thats what it lacks actually.
