Zele 370Z

Heavy with carbon fiber and titanium, the list is - as the car's name suggests - a complete replacement of the main aerodynamic and performance elements of the car. Starting with the body kit, Zele has upgraded the 370Z Complete Edition to include: a new front aero bumper; carbon fiber front lip spoiler; redesigned rear bumper and side skirts; and a carbon fiber rear spoiler, B-pillar covers, radiator shroud and mirror covers.

Titanium elements include a new shift knob, strut tower brace and a 'Type 2' muffler. The car's suspension is upgraded with an Aragosta kit and new brakes provide even more fade-resistant stopping power. RAYS Volk Racing TE37G2 alloy wheels finish off the exterior treatment with some lightweight and attractive equipment from one of the most prized makers of racing wheels. Inside, the car gets a pair of Recaro bucket seats upholstered with Alcantara.

The front bumper flows well and finally makes those headlights/fenders look tolerable. Sweet car though!!

+1000

I just wish it wasnt debadged and I wish it had twin exhausts instead of quads. Also, the spoiler should be body coloured.

For those wanting the non OEM look this would be my choice...so far.

The body line that I can't adjust visually is from the trunk spoilers lower edge. The gap between it and the hatch lid break is sparse looking. 1st pic.

I would like to see this kit on a white car and a silver car with a classy silver wheel or a not all black wheel.
Not so racer looking. A mix of tuner and style would be nice.

+1 I think it would suit a nice 5 or 7 spoke design with gunmetal finish.

I think they forgot to put the shift knob on before the show.

Here it is though.

Quad pipes are too much, and I'm guessing the wheels are 19", which I also don't like. However it is the best looking 370Z I've seen.

The majority of their recent R&D has gone into the GT-R's performance. pic.

Not that they are being lazy but maybe have a lot of money vested in the quad set up. Their signature look???

Rarely do I think aftermarket aero kits look as nice as stock, but this looks way better than stock! LOVE IT!

If they just filled in the rear bumper vents it would be a near-perfect aftermarket upgrade.

Oh yeah and I hate them too. It detracts from the rear. I'd get rid of those and the exhausts.

I have not sat in a Recaro in years.

Does anyone know if they have much butt support..... road trips?

It sure does not look like much padding. But it looks snug.
