Unveiled in August 2021, the all-new Z has been enthusiastically received by new and old aficionados alike thanks to its iconic styling and exciting technology-driven performance. By competing in this season's Super GT with the Nissan Z GT500, Nissan and NMC aim to broaden the Z’s fan base and increase the exposure of the Super GT series,” Nissan said in a press release.
