Nissan announced the 40th Anniversary 2010 370Z back in October, but until now we haven't known just how much it'll cost to get this little slice of special-edition history. Today Nissan revealed that the model will cost $38,860, or about $1,000 less than the 350-horsepower NISMO version of the new Z.

That's a steep price, but things begin to come into focus when you learn that the car will be limited to just 1,000 units. That's a small enough batch that the car may have some collectibility down the road, though it'll take a few decades to get there.

Standard equipment on the 40th Anniversary edition make it desirable enough to want to own and drive now, however, including 19-inch Rays forged alloy wheels, all standard 370Z Touring and Sport Package features including the SynchroRev Match gearbox and aero treatment, plus a unique "40th Quartz" exterior color and red leather interior.

Other unique features include a smoked wheel finish, red brake calipers and 40th Anniversary badges on the rear hatch and front shock tower brace. Interior upgrades include red leather seats and red door panel inserts, plus seatback embroidery and and red stitching on the center stack, shift boot and knee pads. Each 40th Anniversary 370Z also comes with a certificate of ownership and a special satin car cover.

Though the first Zs were sold in October of 1969, the 40th Anniversary model of the 2010 Nissan 370Z will have to wait until early next spring to see retail.
