The Nissan 370Z has been around for a pretty long time, first unveiled back in 2008 as the successor the 350Z. However, the carmaker isn’t ready to give up on it just yet, and has introduced yet another special edition version of the two-door sports car called the Heritage Edition.

As Nissan puts it, the Heritage Edition “honours the iconic Nissan sports car as it approaches its 50th anniversary at the end of the decade since its launch under the Datsun brand.” The coupe will go on display at the upcoming New York International Auto Show alongside the GT-R Track Edition.

What makes this 370Z special? Well, for starters, it is offered in a choice of two colour schemes – Chicane Yellow Heritage Edition and Magnetic Black Heritage Edition. The former features black outside mirrors, gloss black graphics and yellow interior trim, while the latter gets gloss silver graphics and yellow interior trim.

Based on the 2018 model year 370Z, it also receives new headlights and rear combination taillights, a new rear fascia paint scheme and chrome door handles. The 3.7 litre naturally-aspirated V6 continues to be of service here, offering 332 hp and 366 Nm of torque.

Transmission options include a seven-speed automatic or six-speed manual, and those who opt for the self-rowing choice will receive an Exedy high-performance clutch and Nissan’s Downshift Rev Matching (DRM) tech.

“Over the past five decades there have been a number of special Z® trim packages that have added a sense of customization straight off the showroom floor,” said Michael Bunce, vice president of product planning at Nissan North America.

“The new 2018 370Z Heritage Edition honors that tradition, blending it with the modern design and performance of the 2018 370Z. We’re pleased to be debuting the new Heritage Edition in New York, one of the top Z markets from the very beginning,” he added.
