Nissan today announced U.S. pricing for the 2020 370Z Coupe and 370Z NISMO, which are on sale now at Nissan dealers nationwide. The starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices (MSRPs) for the 370Z Coupe and the high-performance 370Z NISMO are $30,090 and $45,790 respectively. (add $895 Destination and Handling)
The big selling move for 2020 is the addition of a new 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition package, which uses five decades of the sports car to promote and justify a an additional $2,600 above the 370Z Coupe Sport MSRP of $30,090 + $895.
The 1970 Datsun 240Z made its U.S. debut at the 1969 New York Auto Show. The two-door coupe was a clone of the square-jawed British roadsters and was arguably for the era, Japanese stylish and powerful. It was affordable compared to other sports cars on the market.
The 2020 50th Anniversary Edition is offered only on the 370Z Coupe Sport grade and is available with both the 6-speed manual and 7-speed automatic transmissions. Its appearance notes Brock Racing Enterprises livery that adorned the BRE Datsun racers of the late 1960s and early 1970s – in a choice of two exterior two-tone color options: White/Red or Silver/Black with bold door stripes.
Other exterior affectations include unique red wheel accents, black outside mirrors, 50th Anniversary side marker decals and 50th Anniversary rear badge. In addition, the standard Sport front chin and rear spoilers have been removed.
The car’s interior has leather-appointed and synthetic suede sport seats with red accents and logos, 50th Anniversary embossing on the seatbacks, leather or Alcantara steering wheel with top red stripe, 50th Anniversary badges on the tachometer and console, synthetic suede door panel inserts with red stitching, red contrast stitching and piping throughout the interior, dark silver 50th Anniversary kickplates of course, and 4-way power heated seats.
