“I went through a lot of hassle with this project,” Tyson admits. “You see these nice shops with great shop cars and even they end up being not exactly as advertised. So after a few setbacks, I stepped it up and couldn’t be happier with the partners I work with today.” If you were ever curious about what three years and several hundred thousand dollars does to a project car, you don’t have to look much further than this 350Z. Owned by car enthusiast, male model and TV personality Tyson Beckford, this Z33 has been under constant construction. Although we saw what looked like a complete and ready to roll 350Z at SEMA 2007, Tyson insisted that it was going back to shops across the country to take it to a new level.

 

Running pump gas, 93 Octane in New Jersey, the twin turbo mill pumped out a respectable 559whp with 540lb-ft of torque.

“I went through a lot of hassle with this project,” Tyson admits. “You see these nice shops with great shop cars and even they end up being not exactly as advertised. So after a few setbacks, I stepped it up and couldn’t be happier with the partners I work with today.”

 

The most striking feature of the car is the brilliant gold carbon fiber cladding. Many panels have been completely removed and designed in carbon fiber with Beckford’s technology partner, Seibon. The carbon experts over at Seibon assembled a one-of-a-kind gold weave for his ride, now that’s VIP. The hood and hatch are all carbon fiber as are all four fenders, which have been widened to increase the track of the Z a few inches. To top it all off, a set of sculpted C-West sideskirts were painted a blazing red by Wet Works. The only other exterior item that isn’t carbon clad is the roof and it wasn’t available at the time.

 

When it came to selecting some sweet rollers for the project, Beckford wanted something that was simple, yet would stand out. He contacted his boys Carlos and Sergio over at Kinesis wheels for a set of Kinesis K58 wheels to die for. These 19-inch forged wheels feature a gold face with polished lip. Beckford wrapped the rare wheels in a set of Pirelli P Zeros, a 255 width of front and a 295 in the back for added grip. All of the suspension duties have been taken care of with TEIN Flex coilovers to achieve the right stance and an in-cabin EDFC controller to switch damper settings.

 

With all of the chassis taken care of, attention turned to the powerplant. Beckford had seen the countless forced induction systems options out there, but decided he would go Australian to make some of the most serious jam. He settled on the big power APS twin turbo kit, as it includes absolutely everything to make big, reliable power. Beckford wasn’t settling for a gutless low-end either, so he installed the Brian Crower 4.21L stroker kit. Tyson and Charlie at Diamond Motors in San Dimas, CA did all the grunt work, installing some low compression CP forged pistons into Darton sleeves and a custom stroker crankshaft found its way into the bottom end. The head was ported and polished, then filled with an upgraded Ferrea valvetrain before it was sealed all back up with ARP studs.
