Nissan got a jump on the competition by debuting the 2020 Nissan 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition ahead of Press Days at the 2019 New York Auto Show. The special edition commemorates the 50th anniversary of the original 1970 Datsun 240Z, with exterior and interior details that recognize the legacy of that historic sports car. The two-tone exterior design is inspired by the #46 BRE (Brock Racing Enterprises) Datsun 240Z that won multiple SCCA National Championships, driven by John Morton.

Based on the 2020 Nissan 370Z Sport, the 50th Anniversary Edition reimagines the original BRE livery with design cues such as two signature stripes on the side of the car, with the hood, A-pillars, side mirrors and decklid painted in the accent color. Two color combinations are offered: white with red accents and silver with black accents.

A thin stripe runs down each side of the car from the headlight to the rear edge of the side glass, ending in a triangle said to be inspired by the C-pillar of the Datsun 240Z. The 370Z 50th Anniversary also includes a 50th Anniversary badge under the rear 370Z badge, 50th Anniversary side decals around the Z logo, as well as red wheel accents and rear spoiler deletion.
