Jason Gale 2009 Nissan 370Z PASMAG TBGLIVE Importfest 2014 Lead

Jason Gale has wanted a Z since he was a kid, and it shows. He's poured about a lifetime's worth of work and crazy ideas into it as evidence! The car is made up of one-offs and personal touches to the point that there can't be another 370Z on earth that's the same.

A Precision Turbo twin-scroll snail boosts this Z to 522 horses. The exterior features such names as Mine's, Amuse, Varis, and Z-Speed, with a decent dose of carbon fiber. It seems every inch of this car has at least a piece of carbon fiber on it.

Inside is a one-off wonderland. The steering wheel is a one-of-one custom, the Takata seats are the only set like them the world, and the carbon fiber gauges are a custom configuration. Even the wheels are one of 20 in the world.This Z was the undisputed winner of Importfest, simply because there's nothing like it.

BEEN WORKING OUT: No, this isn't the engine bay of a GT-R. This is Gale's 370Zís 3.7L VQ in its very best dress. Carbon fiber everywhere, symmetrical wastegates on intake tubes and a seriously fat strut bar are highlights in this beastly bay.

GRIP LIKE NO OTHER: Paired up with the one-of-one seats, a DCT Motorsports steering wheel sits across. It also happens to be a one-of-a-kind. This makes for one rare interior! We don't think anyone gets to eat drive-thru in here.

TRULY ONE-OF-A-KIND
: Sitting oh-so pretty on M7 Japan coilovers, below the minimal gap are a one-of-20 set of Work wheels, which have been reworked by Avant Garde to their specs and color. You can also catch a glimpse of the Varis-style spoiler and Craftsquare carbon fiber door mirrors.

THE RAREST BUTT WARMERS: These Takata Drift LE racing seats are heated, silver-stitched and built to be the only set in the world. They look right at home here.
