The Z-car is an engineering showpiece that has always had radical updates between model generations. Big changes are on the horizon for the 370Z for 2019, we expect, so this new Heritage Edition is a crown on the generation in total.
For those who demand naturally aspirated, high-rev power and the current steering/transmission setup? Now is the time to pounce.
The 370Z Heritage comes in yellow or black with yellow accents. Black wheels and black stripe graphics set it apart on the road… but the yellow model does risk risk Bumble-Z nicknames.
