There’s only one word to describe the all-new 2023 Nissan Z – INCREDIBLE!
Of course, you could follow that up with words like, FAST, DYNAMIC and AFFORDIBLE too. You heard right; an affordable sports car is now a reality. The all-new Z represents an approachable sports car for heritage and new fans alike. The Z has over 50 years of inspired vintage style with the modern technology touches of today. It’s evident that the Z is the best of both worlds and that’s clear even before you start the engine.
During a recent media experience, Nissan invited guests to enjoy all the style and speed that the new Z offers in exhilarating Las Vegas, Nevada and surrounding dessert. We dined on amazing cuisine, experienced a Circ D’Solel show and enjoyed the lights, sights and sounds that only Vegas can provide. While most people find it easy to get entranced by Sin City fun, I came prepared with one thing on my mind, the Nissan Z special edition, aka the Z Proto Spec.
