Nissan helped celebrate all things Nissan Z at the 30th annual International Z Car Convention (ZCON) in Austin, Texas. Hosted by the Z Car Club Association, the annual event hosts Datsun and Nissan Z car enthusiasts from around the world.
Nissan brought along four historic vehicles: the Prince R380 racecar, a 1971 240Z, a custom-built 300ZX which served as a PPG Pace Car in the 1990s, and the original 1999 Z concept that paved the way for the introduction of the 350Z.
Also at this year’s ZCON, Nissan showcased the 2018 370Z Heritage Edition, which made its debut at the 2017 New York International Auto Show. Available on the base 370Z Coupe, the best-selling and most affordable trim level, the Heritage Edition package is offered in two exterior colors – Chicane Yellow and Magnetic Black. This was the first time both the Chicane Yellow and Magnetic Black 370Z Heritage Editions were shown together.
ZCON events were held at various venues around the Austin area. Throughout the five-day period, enthusiasts participated in car shows and listened to special guest speakers. The week concluded on 24 June with a car show at the famous Circuit of the Americas racetrack.
