Nissan has still to decide whether its special 40th Anniversary edition of the 370Z will go on sale in the UK.
The Japanese firm launched its commemorative sports car on the eve of the Tokyo motor show in October and deliveries will start in the new year in Japan and the US.
The first Z-car to go on sale was the Datsun 240Z in October 1969, and the Nissan 370Z 40th Anniversary commemorates the history of one of Japan’s first sports cars.
A Nissan spokesman told Autocar that “we might see something similar early next year”, but the car hasn't yet been confirmed for a UK launch.
The new model gets the same 3.7-litre V6 as the standard car, mated to a manual gearbox. It is also equipped with the Sport Package, which includes the clever SynchroRev Match system (a manual gearbox which blips the throttle automatically on downshifts), new front and rear spoilers, a limited-slip differential and upgraded Nissan Sport Brakes.
