The name Nissan is become synonymous with the word Nurburgring; the pair is popping up everywhere, most recently when the Japanese automaker’s first true super car, the GT-R , lapped the German racetrack in just 7 minutes and 26 seconds . Shifting gears over to Nissan’s newest Z car , while we here in the U.S. get the 370Z Nismo as a factory tuned option, Nissan owners in Europe get to drive a special Nurburgring Edition. This special edition 370Z will be limited to only 80 units and will be priced at €50,400.
The Nurburgring Edition is inspired by the Z cars that recently participated in the Nurburgring 24-hour endurance race. The cars will be painted in Premium Ultimate Yellow and will feature special decals, the factory exhaust will be swapped out for a more sonorous Cobra system and there will be a numbered plaque to identify each model. However the nicest feature will be the 19 inch OZ alloy wheels. The modifications will only be superficial; the 3.7 Liter V6 goes untouched, still making 331 HP. A nice touch from Nissan is that with every Nurburgring Edition comes a €150 gift card, redeemable at the ‘Ring.
