Nissan has revealed a new limited edition 370Z – the Nissan 370Z Black Edition. Available from April in a choice of Black or Quartz from £33,645.
The latest Nissan Z – the Nissan 370Z – has been with us a bit over a year now. There have already been a number of limited edition cars for different markets, and the UK got the 370Z Yellow last Summer. And it looks as if the same people in charge of thinking up catchy names at Nissan have been on the case for the latest 370Z limited edition, with the announcement that the latest 370Z will be the Nissan 370Z Black Edition.
Is this a more powerful 370Z? Does it get a beefed up set of brakes to cope with the extra power? Has the suspension been fettled to improve the driving dynamics? Sorry, it’s a no on all counts. This is a purely cosmetic job.
As with the bog-standard 370Z, the Black Edition gets the 3.7 litre V6 which will do 0-60mph in a bit over 5 seconds. The 370Z Black Edition – which is intended to mark the 40th anniversary of Nissan ‘Z’ cars – gets the standard spec – which includes BOSE, six-speed ‘box with Synchro Rev Control and an HDD SatNav and sound system – and then some of the usual Limited Edition bits and bobs.
The interior gets red leather and suede with ’40th Anniversary’ logos, a leather steering wheel with red stitching and red stitching. Outside you get a ’40th’ logo on the back, 19″ RAYS wheels and red brake callipers. The paint job comes in a choice of Black or Quartz metallic with Nissan’s Scratch Shield technology which ‘heals’ the paint in the event of small scratces and stone chips.
The 370Z Black Edition is available from April with 370 cars being made available in Europe. Prices are £33,645 for the manual car and £35,045 for the auto.
