2018 Nissan 370Z Heritage Edition Keeps The Z Fresh In Your Mind

The 2018 Nissan 370Z Heritage Edition commemorates the fact the Nissan Z Car turns 50 in two years.

You read correctly and that’s an odd milestone, but don’t dwell on that too long. At least Nissan is throwing some fresh attention on this nearly decade-old design that carries the tradition of that original 240Z launched in 1969. And it’s much less expensive than the company’s other sports car, the monstrously powerful GT-R. So accept this offering while we wait for the long-promised follow-up Z car.

To that end, the Heritage Edition is a package for the coupe with some added graphics and color around modifications Nissan has bestowed on the 370Z for 2018. These include new lights front and rear, a revised grille and door handle treatment and the EXEDY high-performance clutch. Opting for the Heritage Edition pack on the base Coupe model then gets you Chicane Yellow paint with black graphics or Magnetic Black with silver graphics, both with a yellow and black interior scheme.

The Heritage Edition comes with the 3.7-liter V6 with 332 horsepower mated to either the standard six-speed manual or available 7-speed automatic.

The 2018 370Z and the Heritage Edition package will be shown next week at the New York Auto Show before they go on sale later this spring.

    What a Nissan thing to do. Just give us a new Z and GTR already. That being said, congrats on 50 years.

      Exactly

  • Craig

    I actually like this a lot. [More than I thought I would] The color really brings this car to life.

  • BlackPegasus

    Nothing says excitement like base model Ford Mustang stickers on a Nissan Z car. 😖

  • Howstar

    Thats lovely, but come on its been 8 years of 370z now.

  • Mill0048

    Where’s the heritage? All I see it the typical special edition treatment. Nothing here says heritage to me. Maybe they could’ve called it something else.

    Nissan will make the Z35 a birthday special.

    I’m calling it.

    • Eythan Aldrich

      you mean z35? the 370z is a z34

      • Tumbi Mtika

        Oops. I made a mistake. Thank you for catching that.

        • Eythan Aldrich

          no problem 🙂

  • HARDLY FRESH.

  • An Existing Person

    I’m keeping my hopes up that Nissan will use this as a final send off of this Z34 generation Z, and finally introduce a long awaited new Z when it hits 50 years (in 2 years time).

  • Sébastien

    where did they find those ugly DRL – look aftermarket,
    couldn’t they make it inside the headlights?

    • Eythan Aldrich

      dude you are 5 years late complaining about that……your complaint is invalid now….. -_-

      • Sébastien

        Oh crap, I thought that was part of that xyz Edition package 🙂

    • sidewaysspin

      I think they suit the car.

  • Infinite1

    Ew, it’s like the Toyota GT86 with the “special edition” runs that they’ve been doing: aesthetic changes

  • SteersUright

    This car was such a sad failure for Nissan. A storied name, tremendous anticipation when first announced resulting in a chubby, polarizing design with a terribly cheap and nasty interior, high belt-line, poor visibility, uninspiring powertrain, etc. etc. Then again, even the GTR has such a horrendous interior for a $100k+ vehicle its likely a deal breaker for many shopping in that price realm. Seriously though, kill this thing along with the Q60, start fresh and bring something as innovative and beautiful as the 90’s Z was when it first arrived!

    So old… the current Z needs to retire. That turbocharged 3.0 from the Infiniti Q50/60 would be interesting. Nissan could bring back a turbocharged Z. However I do hope Nissan offers a detoned or even naturally aspirated version (or turbo 4 cylinder) as an entry level car. The current Z is too expensive and it’s older than dirt.
