It’s that time of the year again where car manufacturers are scrambling to introduce its iconic sports car anniversary edition. Nissan is celebrating its 40th anniversary model of the Nissan 370z with limited production. So what do you get in the 40th edition 37oz model? The 40th anniversary model starts out with a 370z Coupe Touring model equipped with manual transmission and Sport Package. Not bad for a starter, it seems Nissan doesn’t skim anything this time like previous anniversary models (lame and expensive). The color of choice for this year anniversary model is “40th Quartz” exterior color with the red leather interior. These two colors are great contrast to each other, and really bring out the definition and tone of the 370z looks.
The Nissan 370z 40th Anniversary Edition will also get an exclusive high-luster smoke wheel finish with red brake calibers. In addition, the interior will get appointed red leather treatment around the dashboard area and steering wheel. One thing is missing is the engine upgrade, hey, how about a turbo or supercharger here? Well leave it to Steve Millen, he has a supercharger ready soon by the beginning of next year.
So far no pricing yet but what see from the added equipment is that the top model 370z 40th Anniversary Edition will be around $40,000. The 370z 40th Anniversary Edition won’t be available till spring of 2010. Now lets see, a Z or Mustang? Share your thoughts! First, lets watch the video below to get into the mood :). This reminds me of my 1986 Nissan 300z, which I’ve spent most of my weekends fixing that darn thing. It has more broken digital stuff than C3PO and R2D2 combined.
Nissan of North America has finally announced pricing for the 370Z 40th Anniversary Edition, which is scheduled to go on sale in late February 2010. The 40th Anniversary Edition starts with the 370Z Touring model equipped with Sport Package and 6-speed manual transmission then adds unique special equipment.
