Derek’s Carbon Fiber 370Z

In the car scene everyone wants to be different,

or so you would hope; having items that not many people have. You want to be able to say “Yes, I am the only person with this.”

Fortunately for Derek, he can say that he has put a lot of time and money into making his Z truly one of a kind. Fitted with Full Carbon Fiber body kit from AeroJacket (which is the second made in the US),  the F111 Directional series wheels by Avant Garde , and an air ride suspension setup from Accuair, car came together to make one unique Z.

I personally have witnessed this piece of art come alive over the last year with so many dramatic changes into what it is now and much more to come in the future.

“I has always been a big fan of carbon fiber” Derek stated. When he first saw another 370Z with a full CF body kit, he got in contact with AeroJacket USA and got on board with them. Derek now has the second full kit produced in the US.

His new sponsorship, with Avant Garde wheels, equipped him with the one of a kind F111 Directional Series Wheels.

Derek plans to keep transforming his Z into a fully carbon fiber beast in order to be the second fully carbon fiber 370Z. Aside from the appearance, he also plans to add a little power as well with throwing in a twin scroll turbo kit.
