2010 Chicago: New Nissan 370Z Model Celebrates 40 Years of the Z Car

October 22, 1969, was the day Nissan (or Datsun, in this case) sold its first Z car, a 1970 240Z, in North America. To celebrate 40 years of the Z, Nissan crafted a special edition 370Z for 2010.

For the most part, the 40th Anniversary 370Z is identical to a 370Z Touring equipped with the optional sport pack. Special touches on the celebratory cars include unique “40th Graphite” paint, complemented by tinted 19-inch Rays aluminum wheels.
Since 40th anniversaries are typically celebrated with rubies, Nissan’s doused the car with ruby-colored highlights inside and out. The leather seats, interior trim stitching, exterior emblems, and brake calipers are all finished in a deep red hue.
All 40th Anniversary 370Zs will be equipped with the stock 3.7-liter V-6, and a six-speed manual transmission with the nifty rev-matching feature. Nissan plans on building only 1000 examples, but you’d better hurry — at $39,580 (including destination), approximately $1200 more than a similar 370Z Touring, they’re likely to disappear quickly.
