The appearance of the anniversary version of the Japanese sports coupe resembles a livery (body paint), which was used by the 240Z in the SCCA competitions of the early 1970s.

The 2019 New York car dealership is a special place for Nissan. 50 years ago, the Japanese automaker gave American buyers a first look at the now iconic Nissan S30 sports car, which in other markets was known as the Datsun 240Z. To mark this event, Nissan offers another special version for the 370Z, called the 50th Anniversary Edition.

“It’s no secret that the Datsun 240Z was the first Japanese sports car in the United States,” said Ivan Espinosa, corporate vice president of global strategy and product planning for Nissan.

“This car has changed American motor racing. After the BRE 240Z debuted in 1970, Nissan / Datsun became one of the most successful companies in American motor sport – with thousands of victories over the past five decades. “

That is why the 50th Anniversary Edition has such an interesting look. Two-sided trim with double side stripes pays homage to the race car, which dominated the SCCA races in the early 1970s. Nissan will offer a livery (body coloring) in two colors: white with red accents and silver with black accents. The package is available for complete sets Sport, Sport Touring and Nismo.

Every car receives door strips running from the headlights to the rear pillar. The nameplate Z on the wings is also decorated with a special brand name dedicated to the 50th anniversary. The car received an exclusive 19-inch wheels. Inside, the 50th Anniversary Edition has a series of logos on the tachometer and head restraints. Unique seams, a special Alcantara-covered steering wheel, rugs and additional inserts made of synthetic suede on the doors complement the look quite stylish.
