The 2020 Nissan 370Z Commemorates 50 Years with a Special Anniversary Edition

Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition celebrates, well, you know - Autoblog

It also receives the GT-R Nismo's engine, which gets new turbos borrowed from the latest GT3 series GT-R race vehicle. Given the explosive turbo lag is actually one of the GT-R's most endearing aspects, a challenge and something to exploit, let's hope the improvements haven't dulled the sensation too much. Completing the makeover for 2020 are the new Brembo carbon ceramic rotors which help decrease unsprung weight. This allows drivers of any skill level to change gears like a professional race vehicle driver.

Under the bonnet, the 50th Anniversary Z soldiers on with its trusty 3.7-litre naturally aspirated V6, which produces 247kW of power (at 7000rpm) and 366Nm of torque (at 5200rpm).

The wheel wells are filled by nine-spoke, 20-inch RAYS forged aluminum wheels that feature a new design for 2020, and are lighter than last year-though Nissan won't say by how much- wrapped with slicker Dunlop tires with a contact patch that's 11-percent wider than before.

Small modifications were made to the GT-R Nismo's already stout drivetrain. Torque is rated at 652Nm. The 6-speed dual-clutch transmission remains, but its "R mode" has been reprogrammed to shift quicker and has been optimized for better gear selection while exiting corners. The titanium exhausts also gets some revisions and swanky blue tips. The callipers are finished in a bright yellow shade and can withstand temperatures of up to a 1,000 degree Celsius.

It comes with a two-tone livery that pays homage to classic Skyline race cars from the past.

The Datsun 240Z made its USA debut a half a century ago and Nissan is marking the occasion by unveiling the 2020 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition.

Fans of the R34-generation Skyline GT-R will be thrilled about the return of Bayside (Wangan) Blue, which on this anniversary special also adds white stripes. 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. Powering the vehicle is the same 572PS/633Nm 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 from the 2017 GT-R.

Inside, the vehicle features a special steering wheel wrapped in Alcantara with a center stripe, dark chrome accents, the letter "Z" woven into the seat, and the "Anniversary" logo embossed into the backrests.

The R35 GT-R has been in production for 12 years and is now starting to appear a bit long in the tooth. That's the genesis of Nissan's sports auto heritage.

"A GT-R is about total balance management", said Hiroshi Tamura, chief product specialist for the GT-R.
