40th Anniversary Nissan Z
Nissan introduces a limited edition of the legendary Z car for its 40th anniversary.
It's been more than 40 years since the first Z sports car landed in North America on Oct. 22, 1969. The 240Z single-handedly turned the automotive world on its head with its combination of performance, reliability and affordability. To celebrate the Z car's ruby anniversary, Nissan is rolling out a limited-edition 370Z 40th Anniversary model.
Based on the 370Z Touring coupe model with the six-speed manual transmission, the limited-edition version includes the Sport Package, which adds the SynchroRev Match system, upgraded brakes, limited-slip differential, body kit and forged 19-inch Rays wheels. Exclusive equipment includes a smoke wheel finish, red brake calipers and 40th-anniversary badges.
For the interior, Nissan adds red leather seats with embossed 40th Anniversary seatback logos and door-panel inserts, and red stitching for the steering wheel, center stack and shift boot. A 40th Anniversary plaque is also mounted inside, and all cars come with a commemorative 40th Anniversary satin car cover.
Sales of the 2010 370Z Coupe 40th Anniversary Edition begin at the end of February at select Nissan dealerships with a base price of $38,860. The edition run is limited to 1,000 cars.
