Garrett Thompson: 2011 Nissan 370Z Sport

The award-winning 2011 Nissan 370Z Sport, "Dark Angel", was envisioned 5 years ago as a successor to Garrett Thompson's previous Infiniti G35 build. Thompson chose the 370Z because of its iconic history and solid performance characteristics. This is a daily driven seasonal show and track car. Based on the philosophy of incorporating practical and functional based modifications as a center-point for show, street, and track, this Z has grown every year into a very unique and powerful work of art in all arenas. The Dark Angel has been tested on famous race tracks as Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (Bowmanville, ON), Toronto Motorsports Park (Cayuga, ON) , and Shannonville Motorsport Park (Shannonville, ON) and has come out strong and has put up great times all contributed to the work put into the car. Still in its infancy, it is quickly growing to be a beast among cars.

FAVORITE MODIFICATION:
"I would have to say my favorite modification would be the Stillen supercharger. Running with EcuTek RaceROM and tuned by OnPoint Dyno, this supercharger application in combination with other complimentary modifications really comes alive! With lots of immediate torque all across the power band it really puts you right back in your seat at WOT."
