Earlier this month, Nissan unveiled its 2020 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition sports car. Of particular note is the cool 240Z-inspired throwback livery that the car wears in either black on silver or red on white cars.
For SEMA 2018, Nissan has turned up with a highly-customized 370Z. The car started out life as a 2012 model, and has a transplanted engine in the form of a Nissan 3.0-liter VR30DDTT twin-turbo V6 with an AMS Performance cold air intake, to help it make 400 hp.
When opportunity comes knocking it is often best to answer. Preferably with a hearty “Hell yeah!” and especially when it involves a Nissan 370Z that’s been converted into an over-sized snowmobile on steroids. This is exactly what happened to Nissan’s chief Truck and SUV Brand Communications specialist, Kevin Raftery; who upon accepting the offer to take the snow-throwing Fairlady Z out for a spin in the Grand Tetons, found himself assisting in the creation of Nissan’s latest video adventure.
The Nissan 370Z is one of those cars that sports car fans either love or hate. It isn’t the fastest or the best handling vehicle, but it is nice to look at. You might expect with sales not so great for the aging model that Nissan might either kill it off or redesign it to be more appealing.
Vibrant, low-lined, and vintage inspired, the 370Z Heritage Edition hearkens back to a time when John Denver 8-tracks ruled the lower console, and vinyl wasn’t just for record players, but was a staple material for automotive interiors.
Nissan has announced that it will be showing off a special edition of the 2018 370Z at the New York International Auto Show. The car is the 2018 Nissan 370Z Heritage Edition and it will come in two colors with special graphics and interior trim.
