…It’s Tuner Tuesday: AG Excaliber?

AG Excaliber Exterior

Question: How do you fit 24-inch wheels in the front, and 30-inch wheels in the back of a CL-Class Mercedes-Benz?

AG Excaliber Foam

Answer: A lot of expanding foam.

AG Excaliber Detail

The car you see here, which was at one time just another two door Mercedes, was turned into this big red monster by a Lithuanian body man named Audronis Gestautas, who formed a brand called AG Excalibur so that he could make cars like this.

Besides the over-the-top exterior, the interior is covered in Swarovski crystals, and was custom formed using a healthy serving of cardboard!

Sadly, the Mercedes was not the only Lithuanian car to go under the knife, as a tuning shop named Lithuanian National took a BMW 6 Series and also modified it to within an inch of its life:

What do they put in the water over there?

…Laura doesn’t like Damien Hurst?

Damien Hurst Skull Prank

If you’re artist Damien Hirst and you’ve just completed the most expensive piece of contemporary art the world has ever seen in the form of a skull covered with more than 8,000 diamonds (valued at up to $100 million), it can’t come as a surprise that some are going to be less than thrilled about it.

An artist named Laura was one of those people, and decided to show her feelings by creating a replica of the skull, covering it in 6,522 Swarovski crystals, and then dumping it behind the gallery where the original was being shown during the middle of the night. Trashy art indeed.
