Nissan first took suggestions on parts to use for the car on Facebook and allowed fans to vote on the components.

The car will be revealed at ZDayZ 2012 from May 17-20, which this year takes place at the Fontana Village Resort in North Carolina near the famous Deal's Gap, and the road known as the Tail of the Dragon that has 318 curves in 11 miles. 

Nissan has produced two videos about the project so far. The first outlines the concept, and the second shows the first portion of the actual build.
