Time sure does fly. It was just a little over a year ago when Dom's 370z made an appearance on Slammednuff.com and recently we were lucky enough to catch up with the legend himself. At the time the build was amazing. The care that Dom had put into it could be noticed a mile away. The elegance of the WORK Gnosis CV202 disappearing into the car just finished off Dom's 370z perfectly.
Fast forward to present time and Dom has out done himself once again. It is a completely different car the WORK wheels are gone only to be replaced by Avant Garde's first ever Brushed Turquoise F433 spec2 wheels. The wheels no longer tuck instead when the deadly combination of Airrex and Accuair exhales the car rests on the barrel of the wheels. When we say deadly we mean the only thing separating the car from the asphalt is the Varis carbon fiber lip Aerojacket carbon fiber side skirt ending with the Aerojacket Carbon fiber diffuser.
Dom's progression with his 370z has been incredible to watch. Every modification that has gone into this car complements his 370z. Tucked under the hood are the EVO-R carbon fiber engine, fluids and battery covers along with the carbon fiber air guide covering the radiator. Hugging the wheels are custom carbon fiber vented fenders and to finish off the rear end is the Aerojacket carbon fiber duck bill with a custom color matched paint job that fades into carbon fiber.
The interior is just as tastefully modified with EVO-R carbon fiber radio bezel, crown meter, gauge pod and window switch covers topping it off with a carbon fiber flat bottom steering wheel. For comfort BRIDE Euroster Premium Leather seats have replaced the stock ones and door panels also sport the BRIDE fabric. With safety and style in mind, TAKATA Drift lll harnesses have also been installed and my favorite part from the interior a Tommy Kaira Japan Heavy Baby shift knob.
As we drove through Downtown Sacramento I lost count of the necks broken. The noise of the city was drowned out by the thundering roar of the Motordyne exhaust and I realized one thing. This is what was envisioned when the first Z car was released in 1969. Nissan had set out to build a roadster that would be iconic with the timeless swept back design the aggressive front end and the sensual curves of the Z have made it that and much more. Dom has accomplished an iconic build. With all his hard work he made that already beautiful car even more intimidating the curves more alluring the front end fierce.
Dom: "Special thanks to my wife Jenn Ferraro for helping me and being supportive."
