Nissan 370Z Coupe Black Edition: 40th Anniversary Special for Europe

Having already presented commemorative editions for the Z's 40th birthday both in Japan and the USA, Nissan has now announced a special celebratory version of the 370Z for the European market that will be available from April as a coupe only, and in a limited run of just 370 units.

As its name implies, the Euro-spec 370Z Black Edition comes in two metallic shades black and quartz with both paints using Nissan's Scratch Shield technology that promises to 'heal' the finish in the case of stone chip damage.

The exterior of the 370Z Black can be identified by the dark grey 19-inch forged RAYS wheels that encompass the red brake calipers and the special emblem on the rear hatch.

Inside the special Z gets a red leather and suede appointed interior with embossed 40th Anniversary logo seats, smooth leather wrapped steering wheel with red stitching that's also found on the centre cluster, centre console and knee pads plus the firm's touch-screen satellite navigation and audio system with USB connectivity.

Other than that, the Black Edition features the same 3.7-litre V6 developing 328PS as the standard model offering the 370Z a limited top speed of 250km/h or 155mph and a 0-100km/h (62 mph) time of 5.3 seconds or 5.6 seconds for the 7-speed automatic version.

In the UK, prices for the 370Z Black Edition start from £33,645 for the 6-speed manual and £35,045 for the automatic transmission model.
