They have a few vids on the post which are worth a watch.

Badass car!

i saw the project z at the unveiling at zdayz this year. i was pretty impressed with it overall but i didn't agree with some of the choices due to their vendor sources. sometimes, neither one would be what i would choose (cut off a hand or a foot, your choice?). still, it's cool to see the car done and letting the people choose how it is built. the paint and graphics came out nice and the seats were amazing

Yea I'd love to get my hands on some seats like those! Probably my favorite mod on the car actually. I wish they would have thrown F.I. exhaust in there as one of the choices though...

Looks pretty badass.. I could do without the graphics or matte wrap though. I really want those seats.

Crowdsourced is a word I'd not heard before.

Not a fan for the looks department. Something with the rims on that nismo and being lowered just dont sit right with me... I also dont like the color or stickers on it lol... and the seats are a nice shade of sh*t brown lol.. Not my taste i guess...

I do like the turbo though!

I actually like the graphics. Keep in mind that the car was advertised and debuted at ZDayZ 2012. The graphics are a spin off of the Dragon Scales.

Overall I liked the car and for what it was, turned out really well. I am glad to see that Nissan thought to turn to the fans to build a theme car like this.

I do wish that they would have given us a broader range of choices when we were voting. And here's to hoping that they either raffle it off or do a charity auction with it.

The car as a whole looked much better in person than it does in the pics I took/have seen from ZDayZ. The wheels were fantastic in person. Honeycomb "scales" were meh.

I thought this car was already raffled off somewhere!?
