Gather ‘round, Z fans. Nissan has spilled the beans on Canadian pricing for all iterations of the 2020 370Z, including the dandy 50th Anniversary Edition.
No extra power is bestowed upon this special trim, keeping the output of its 3.7L V6 at 332 horses. It does, however, wear a very distinct set of clothes. Offered exclusively on the 370Z Coupe Sport trim with either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic transmission (go for the stick), its unique appearance pays tribute to the Brock Racing Enterprises (BRE) livery which adorned their Datsun race cars of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Nostalgia-loving Nissanites can order their 50th Z in a choice of either white/red or silver/black exterior two-tone colour options. Other exterior features special to the 50th Z include unique red wheel accents, black outside mirrors, and a smattering of badges. In addition, the standard Sport front chin and rear spoilers have been deleted.
The car’s unique styling treatments continue inside with red accents and logos on the leather and synthetic suede sport seats. The latter material stretches to the door panel inserts and an array of 50th Anniversary badges are scattered about the interior like rice at a wedding. Red contrast stitching and piping shows up in the cabin as well. Expect to fork over $37,398 for a stickshift version, a $2700 premium over the Z’s mid-level Sport trim, with the automatic transmission adding a further $1500 penalty. Read our lips: take the manual.
Those not interested in the extra frou-frou can opt for the base 370Z Coupe, fitted only with the six-speed manual as nature and the engineers in Yokohama intended, for $30,498. The Sport trim – where the 50th Anniversary package lives – starts at $34,698, while the top-tier snazzy Sport Touring model costs $44,998.
Back for another round for 2020 is the 370Z NISMO. This trim does feature more power, with its 3.7L V6 making 350 horses, eighteen more than standard. A six-speed manual is the sole transmission option, a decision which pleases the Z faithful and your author alike. Standard 19-inch lightweight forged aluminum alloy wheels by RAYS are part of the NISMO package, as are a strut tower brace and a viscous limited-slip diff.
The prices listed here don’t include $1950 in destination charges. All three versions of the 2020 370Z – Coupe, 50th Anniversary, and NISMO, are making their way to Nissan dealers across the country as we speak.
