If that's not enough, Nissan is also releasing a specially 2020 Track Edition optimized for racing and decked out in carbon fiber. The livery is meant to pay homage to the highly successful #46 BRE Datsun 240Z, which won multiple SCCA sportscar racing championships in the U.S. in the 1970s. (Let's hear it, fellow Canadians: "Zee, or zed?") The anniversary edition of the 240′s descendant, the 370Z, is based entirely on the sport model, one of four trims available on the present-day auto. Cues taken from the original BRE race vehicle include signature striping, while the trunk, hood, side mirrors and A-pillars receive the black or red accents. Along the side of the auto, a thin line runs from the headlight to the rear glass, culminating in a small triangle inspired by the C-pillar of the Datsun 240Z. All models will come with a 50th Anniversary badge on the back, as well as "50th Anniversary" script written above the rear license plate housing. A full-length center console separates the driver's seat from the passenger seat.
The leather-appointed and suede-covered heated four-way power seats, which feature adjustable lumbar support, have unique stitching, graphics and the 50th Anniversary logo embossed into the backrests. The special edition also enhances the cabin with dark-chrome accents and faux-suede door panels.
As for the GT-R's vaunted 3.8-liter handcrafted V6 engine, at 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque, new turbochargers improve low rpm response and sharpen response overall, and provide a 5% efficiency boost.
The 50th Anniversary model comes equipped with a close-ratio, 6-speed manual gearbox that features a synchronised downshift rev-matching system called SynchroRev Match. And the Nismo edition is a auto that will feel at home out on the race track.
There's no additional power on offer, though: the extent of the changes to the 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition over the standard model are a number of visual changes, both inside and out. The independent multi-link rear suspension is also stiffer and lighter than the previous generation's design.
It rides on RAYS 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza S007 sports tyres, which hide fixed performance dampers and 355mm front and 350mm rear disc brakes with four-piston front and two-piston rear calipers.
The Nissan 370Z is old.
The 50th Anniversary Edition GT-R is also sportier, with upgrades including a refined "R" mode designed for exiting corners more quickly on the road or on track days, plus gear shift paddles so you can keep your hands on the wheel.
