Nissan is launching the 2024 Z Heritage Edition, a model designed to evoke nostalgia with its retro-themed livery, aiming to capture enthusiasts’ attention following the reintroduction of the Z for the 2023 model year. Positioned between the Performance trim and the high-performance Nismo variant in Nissan’s lineup, this limited-edition car pays homage to the iconic Datsun 240Z.

The exterior of the Z Heritage Edition is distinguished by its striking New Sight Orange paint, reminiscent of the classic S30-generation Datsun. The design features broader fenders accommodating 19-inch wheels, complemented by blacked-out badges and Heritage Edition decals that accentuate its vibrant bodywork. A revised front fascia sports more pronounced rectangular intakes and distinctive black graphics, underscored by racing stripes adorning the hood, roof, and trunk lid.

Under the hood, the Heritage Edition retains the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine from the standard Z, delivering 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a choice of either a six-speed manual or nine-speed automatic transmission. The automatic variant offers slightly quicker acceleration to 60 mph, achieving respectable times around five seconds, though the manual transmission promises a more engaging driving experience. Enhancing its performance credentials are features like a limited-slip differential and Nissan Performance brakes.

Inside, the Heritage Edition mirrors the standard Z, featuring a two-seater cabin adorned with leather and synthetic suede upholstery that’s both heated and power-adjustable. Technological amenities include a nine-inch touchscreen equipped with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, alongside navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, SiriusXM radio, voice command functionality, and more.

Nissan has yet to disclose the production volume of the Z Heritage Edition, which is slated for release during the summer with a starting price of $59,135. This places it above the base Z Performance model’s price of approximately $53,000 but below the more potent Z Nismo variant, which commands upwards of $65,000.

The Z Heritage Edition represents Nissan’s concerted effort to blend contemporary performance with nostalgic design cues, appealing to enthusiasts seeking a blend of modern amenities and classic automotive styling.
