When you hear a name like ‘Nurburgring Edition’, you expect something special, right? Well, judging from Nissan’s press release, this doesn’t seem to be the case with the new 370Z Nurburgring Edition that has been launched in Germany. Supposedly inspired from the bright-yellow 370Zs that participated at the 24-hour endurance race at the Nurburgring in May, the limited edition model will be produced in a limited run of 80 copies. Unique features are limited to a ‘Premium Ultimate Yellow’ paint finish, special decals, a more sonorous Cobra exhaust system, a numbered plaque and 19-inch OZ alloy wheels shod in Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT tires (255/40 R19 at the front, 285/35 R19 at the back).
There are no mechanical upgrades with the special edition 370Z retaining the standard model’s 331HP 3.7-liter V6 engine. Prices in Germany have been set at €50,400 (that’s about $71,700 at today’s exchange rates). Buyers of the special edition 370Z also get a €150 gift card (approx. $215 US) for use at the Nurburgring race track either to perform a few laps on the Nordschleife or to buy memorabilia items.
Nissan’s German division has yet to release any photos of the 370Z Nurburgring Edition – the pictures are from the standard model.
