…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.”)

…Adidas does the dark side?

Adidas Consortium Superstar Wars

Proving that your sneaks can be cool for more than just their design, these Adidas Consortium Superstar Wars shoes come in the same packaging as the Star Wars figures that probably lined the walls of your nerdy past.

Though most will probably stay in the packaging as part of a shoe collectors’ collection, it’s good to know that companies are still putting thought into details as small as the packaging of their products.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Custom Rolls Royce?

Custom Rolls Royce

Thankfully these pictures speak for themselves, because the details of this concoction of a car are scarce.

Custom Rolls Royce Detail

From what I can gather, it was made by Dilip Chhabria Design, and is, unfortunately, a genuine Rolls Royce underneath, though it now looks more like a modified Nissan 350Z with a body kit than anything else.

Features include the Rolls Royce grill, Lamborghini doors, a completely custom rear, and a bright red interior.

I guess they gave up on subtle!
