…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Mansory Cyrus?

Mansory Cyrus

I LOVE carbon fiber, so when you take an already beautiful car like the Aston Martin DB9 and cover the entire thing in space fabric, my mind struggles to process the level of awesome.

Mansory Cyrus Details

Called the Mansory Cyrus, it’s from the shop that never fears to improve on a supercar, regardless of how rare, and will tack on a few $100k to the sticker; though I’d argue that beauty like this can quickly approach priceless.

…Paint jobs on cars shouldn’t be outrageous?

Ten Most Outrageous Car Paint Jobs of 2008

Some people just don’t understand the art of subdued simplicity, but if that’s the case, then having your car listed on Jalopnik’s “Ten Most Outrageous Car Paint Jobs of 2008” is probably an honor.

From lingerie themed and Swarovski covered MINIs to gold leafed Aston Martins, matte black Rolls Royces and chromed out McLaren SLRs, it’s a what’s what and who’s who in the crazy custom car world from this past year, and definitely worth a look.

…Kobe Bryant has skills?

Kobe Bryant is on a roll!

…Mustangs need more Vanquish V12?

Sure, you could coat your Mustang in the body of an Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, but it’s still going to be American muscle on the inside, right?

Apparently not, as one crafty ‘stang owner has managed to find room for the Vanquish’s V12 motor between the wheel wells of an already tastily modified pony.

Check out the video for more info, including the exhaust sound that was never supposed to come out of a car costing less than $100,000:

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Exclusive Motor Cars?

Exclusive Motor Cars

Despite what it looks like, this is not an Aston Martin V12 Vanquish.

Instead, it’s a Ford Mustang with one of the best body replica kits I’ve ever seen.

Made by Exclusive Motor Cars, the replication process includes stretching the wheelbase, widening the track, lowering the ride height, adding 34 extra body panels to the outside, custom upholstering the inside, and then adding the small details like the lights, emblems and grills to get things just right.

What you’re left with after all of that is over is a car that is almost indistinguishable from the real thing. (Except for the price.) They even include a Spy Package that adds on grille-mounted rocket launchers and hood-mounted machine guns for extra fun. (Apparently, “Even the original James Bond car from Die Another Day was equipted with Mustang running gear.”)
