First introduced in America as the 1970 Datsun 240Z, Nissan’s legendary Z car is celebrating five decades of revolutionizing the sports car market with bold styling, class-leading performance, and unmatched value. The big news for 2020 is the addition of a new 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition package, which celebrates five decades of sports car passion. The revolutionary 1970 Datsun 240Z made its North American debut at the 1969 New York Auto Show. The now-iconic two-door coupe was, for the era, both stylish and powerful. Best of all, it was affordable compared to other sports cars on the market.
Regarding overall shape, the 2020 370Z remains largely unmodified from previous years – its dynamic roofline and lowered appearance still give it a feeling of always being in motion, while wide, flared fenders offer an intense ready-for-anything stance. Lightweight aluminum makes its return in the door panels, hood, and rear hatch, which helps to reduce overall mass as well as bring down the 370Z’s center of gravity.
Motivating the 2020 Nissan 370Z is a legendary 3.7-liter DOHC, V6 engine. It fulfills your need for performance by pushes out a total of 332 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft of torque. Acceleration is definitely strong enough for you to outpace the competition. Upon punching the throttle, the new 370Z responds immediately. A 7,500-rpm redline allows you to squeeze out the maximum performance. Not only does the exhilarating 370Z Nismo pack an extra 18 horsepower under the hood, but it also comes equipped with a racing clutch. A special Nismo-tuned suspension takes handling to the next level.
The Nissan 370Z engine is a 3.7 liter, featuring 24 valves, pushing out 332 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. You can get the Base and Sport trims with a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed automatic with paddle shifters for use with the manual mode, while the Sport Touring only features the automatic. The NISMO model ups the performance a bit to 350hp and 276 lb-ft of torque. All models are the rear-wheel-drive for better performance.
The exterior features 6000K 9006 led headlight bulb and boomerang-style taillights and aluminum hood, doors and hatch. Inside, the interior features available synthetic suede and leather-appointed seating, iconic instrument panel-mounted 3-bay gauge cluster, Automatic Temperature Control, Nissan Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition and available Bose® audio system with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), Active Sound Enhancement (ASE) and eight speakers. Available technology features include a standard auto-dimming rearview mirror with RearView Monitor and available Nissan Hard Drive Navigation System with 7-inch VGA touch-sensitive display.
The 2020 Nissan 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition brings retro flash to the Z-car. Building off the 370Z Sport, the 50th Anniversary Edition ups the ante with a retro livery inspired by the #46 BRE 240Z race car that John Morton drove to multiple SCCA victories in the 1970s. Available in either white with red accents or silver with black accents, the livery consists of a contrasting hood, hatch, roof rails, pillars, mirrors, wheel lips, stripes and 50th Anniversary crests. To top the exterior package off, a 50th Anniversary emblem can be found on the back of the car.
