To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic Nissan GT-R, Nissan has given the range an exciting refresh and also introduced a special 50th anniversary variant.
Nissan's GT-R 50th anniversary edition 2020 model is available in three colours, , the limited edition variant is offered in Super Silver with white stripes, Ivory Pearl with red stripes and the new Bayside Blue with white stripe.
Inspiration for the 50th anniversary paint scheme comes from the race livery designs for GT-R from the 1971 Japan Grand Prix. The stripes are applied to the bonnet, roof and boot lid. Coordinating the interior with the exterior, there is also 50th anniversary badging on the seats, centre console, tachometer and kick plates.
Nissan Australia is also celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Nissan 370Z with a special edition variant that considers the brand’s proud racing history.
The Nissan 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition’s distinctive two-tone colour scheme, in red and white and silver and black, is based off the #46 BRE (Brock Racing Enterprises) Datsun 240Z that won the 1970 and 1971 SCCA National Championships in the US. This 2020 special edition Nissan 370Z is powered by Nissan’s 3.7 litre V6 engine, which outputs 245kW of power at 7,000rpm and 363Nm of torque at 5,200rpm.
In celebration of its golden anniversary, Nissan 370Z features both interior and exterior enhancements including 50th anniversary badging.
“The Nissan 370Z is an iconic car with a strong following in Australia,” said Nissan Australia managing director Stephen Lester.
“Since its arrival here we’ve sold almost 22,000 Zs, and this 50th anniversary commemorative edition is sure to attract passionate Z fans and buyers.
The Z made its global debut with the 240Z in 1969. Following the 240Z, the 260Z and 280ZX followed, before the first Nissan badged 300ZX arrived. The Nissan 350Z went on sale at the start of the century before the current generation Nissan 370Z was unveiled at the 2008 LA Auto Show.
