Nissan's resurgence with the Z model has been quite a hit and the 370Z has been the perfect successor to the ever-popular 350Z. With the VQ37HR powering the way to a more streamlined body, it's no surprise that the aftermarket has embraced the 370Z with open arms. While there are tons of nicely built 370Zs in America, it's always nice to see what's being done in Japan as inspiration of fully functional, cleanly built cars.

Most enthusiasts often find it sacrilegious to mix and match parts from various manufacturers when it comes to building their car. Perhaps it's just brand loyalty or a fancy way of keeping a clean spec sheet, but we don't always run across cars like this. Instead of sticking to just one brand for the entire vehicle, this owner mixed and matched with what he/she thought looked best on the 370Z. The result? A Top Secret front spoiler with integrated brake ducts has been combined with Varis twin carbon fiber intake ducts and Varis carbon fiber hood. On the hood are Top Secret aerocatch hood pins and in the rear is a carbon fiber wing from Mine's. And outfitting each corner are none other than Volk Racing's TE-37 wheels in a classic white finish enhanced with a blue pinstripe on the lip.

One thing's for sure, every part of the car is a nice high quality component from a reputable brand in Japan. While we're more used to seeing full out Top Secret cars, or full Varis cars, it's refreshing to see someone break the mold a little bit, blending the best of all worlds for a great looking car.

Do they?

My kit is half Veilside, half Nismo, with a Varis air duct and I've never seen anyone negatively comment that I mixed it up. I know quite a few Japanese car enthusiasts Down Under that run a mixture of exterior parts and it's only ever attracted negative comments when some parts of the kit don't match another.

As for "stunning", I reserve judgement. I think the base color of the car doesn't lend itself well as a contrast against the CF parts. And that blue pinstripe on the flange strikes me as too tryhard.

Yeah, that part is just BS. I'd say more people mix and match than run all the same brand. As far as body kits go, there is usually one part that people don't like so the replace it with something that flows well but suits their tastes.

I agree. With a better base color, I think the wheels could look really good.

I done similar mods with my car as are in the photo.
In fact,my color scheme is the same.Silverstone with carbon fiber
body adds.
I see no problem mixing components if they match a central theme.
I have Nismo,Shine,Mines,Varis,ZCF, JDM Password,Amuse and some custom carbon fiber
on my Z.If you look at current supercars like McClaren,Koenegsegg,you will see
major CF components.In fact some offer also a two-tone look.Check the new BMW i
series.
As long as they match.The car has "line" in the design,I'm all for creativity and a one off look.
