…It’s Tuner Tuesday: ASMA Perfectus?

ASMA Perfectus SLR

When ASMA Design got their hands on the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722, they created an all-carbon-fiber monster called the Perfectus.

Featuring 700hp, a top speed of 216 mph, highly stylized fender flares that make the car more than 2-meters wide, and one-off ASMA rims, it’s a little extreme for most, but when you’re dealing with the world of tuner supercars, the limits are often pushed beyond belief.

…Scooters can be customized?

Japanese Customized Scooters

Apparently the new trend in Japan is customized scooters that have been lowered, chromed, painted and tuned.

Since Japan brought us the rice rocket, could this be the next trend in vehicle modification?

…Your Focus wants to join the orchestra?

In the spirit of Honda’s Cog commercial comes this new Ford spot for the UK Focus that turned and tuned various parts from the car into musical instruments.

There’s the “Transmission Case Cello-Dulcimer”, a “Clutch Guitar”, a “Rear Suspension Spike Fiddle”, and a “Fender Bass” among other things, and each one manages to sound good when mashed with the rest.

Though there’s no way of telling if these parts actually played music, or if they just played the part, it sure does look convincing.

I guess it’s time that I re-up my Fender Bass lessons!
