Toy Car – Pretty Much the Most Amazing Car EVER!

By Spooky on September 6th, 2010 Category: Auto, Pics

That’s how the owner of this unique car describes his creation on his Flickr stream, and the geek in me agrees with him 100%.

The Toy Car is a one-of-a-kind vehicle covered with thousands of toys that the owner most likely collected as a child. Probably eager to show off his massive collection, or just wanting to give his Saab a second life as a cool art-car, the man behind this crazy creation glued all these toys all over the body of  his old ride.

I’m sure he can’t go too fast in that car anymore, for fear of his toys flying off the hood, but who needs speed when you can just cruise around town flaunting your geek spirit for everyone to see.

Check out more photos of the awesome Toy Car on AzyxA’s Flickr stream.

Dude Builds His Own Rolls Royce Phantom

By Spooky on January 20th, 2010 Category: Auto, Pics

24-year-old Ruslan Moukanov managed to prove it’s not all about the money when you want to drive the car of your dreams.

For the young Kazakh, the exclusive Rolls Royce Phantom seemed like an unreachable dream, when he first saw some photos of it, years ago, in the local library. Since raising 500,000 euros was out of the question, Ruslan had to come up with another way of getting the car of his dreams.

Using only his auto-tuning skills, this Rolls Royce fan managed to give his old Mercedes Benz a total make-over and turn into a perfect replica of the Phantom. It might not drive like one and the materials used might be “a little” cheaper, but for the ,3000 euros Ruslan spent, it doesn’t get much better than this. Congrats!

Dubai Tuner Gives Back Seat Driving a Whole New Meaning

By Spooky on September 9th, 2013 Category: Auto

Seen from the outside, the 2008 Nissan Patrol modified by Ali, of Kingdom Customs Garage, in Dubai, looks completely normal, but open the front door and you’ll notice a few details are missing. And by details I mean the steering wheel, pedals, shift stick…

You probably haven’t seen anything like this before, I certainly haven’t. Probably sick of sitting behind the wheel while his friends had all the fun in the back, Ali, a tuner from Dubai moved the driver’s seat to the back of his 2008 Nissan Patrol. The steering wheel now sits behind the front seats, along with the pedals, dashboard gauges, manual transmission and even the rear-view mirror. All that’s left in the front is the dashboard and a series of LED screens for the passengers to pass the time while the driver does his thing in the back. Looking at the photos below, you’re probably thinking this is either photoshopped or a just a show-off tuning job, but this thing is actually drivable, as Ali himself demonstrates in the video at the bottom of this page.

Arabian Tuner Specializes in Covering Cars with Thousands of Shiny Coins

By Spooky on March 22nd, 2013 Category: Auto

A Dubai-based car tuning company aptly named Cars Coin has come up with an original way of giving luxury vehicles a unique look. They simply cover the cars in tens of thousands of modern and antique coins to make them “shine as if they were made of diamonds”.

It’s not easy making your car stand out in the UAE. It doesn’t matter if you drive the latest Ferrari, Lamborghini or Porsche, there are probably hundreds of others just like it lining the streets of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Covering your ride in gold foil is an option, but it’s been done more than once. Luckily, a group of tuning enthusiasts have come up with a new way to make expensive cars look unique. The guys at Cars Coin, an independent car workshop in Dubai, specialize in draping luxury cars in thousands of coins. Photos of their latest creation, a 2013 Range Rover draped in no less than 57,412 old Dirham coins have been making the rounds on the internet, during the last few days. Cars Coin artists spent weeks shinning the coins and gluing each one by hand to the body of the car. According to some sources, this extra metal layer added another 170 kilos to the weight of the luxury SUV. Just to make sure no one is tempted to steal the coins, the tuners used old Dirham coins that are no longer in circulation. But it’s not like most people in the UAE need small change, anyway.

\\\\

This blinged-out Range Rover isn’t Cars Coin’s only accomplishment. Back in 2011 they unveiled their first major work of art – a Mercedes Benz G55 AMG covered in 47,000 shiny 1 Dirham coins. They always make sure to include flags of Arab countries like Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar and UAE, and cover the windows of the cars with posters of Arab leaders. The guys at Cars Coin are available for commission work, although I doubt too many of us can afford it. On the bright side, who would really want their car covered in coins anyway?

\\\\

Coins aren’t the only things people have used to make their cars stand out, over the years. The Toy Car, the Porcelain Car or the Swarovski-covered car are great examples of human ingenuity in this field.

Chinese Farmer Builds Lamborghini Reventon from Scrap Metal

By Spooky on August 22nd, 2012 Category: Auto, News

28-year old Wang Jian, a mechanic and farmer from China’s Jiangsu province, has spent the last year building himself a home-made replica of the Lamborghini Reventon, one of the world’s most exclusive sport cars.

Wang developed a passion for cars at a very young age, and even worked at an auto shop for 10 years before opening his own business. Although he had a chance to work on many different cars, the young mechanic felt like something was missing from his life. It was his very own Lamborghini Reventon, a beautiful Italian sport car priced around $1.3 million. And as if the price wasn’t prohibitive enough, Wang Jian knew only a few of these gems had been produced by the Italian car maker, and all of them were sold to wealthy buyers most of who’s names remain a mystery. But he wasn’t going to let these kind of technicalities stand in the way of owning his own Lamborghini Reventon, so he decided that if he couldn’t buy one, he was going to build it. He set in plan in motion in May of last year, buying an old Volkswagen, and a small Reventon model car to use as reference.

\\\\

The 28-year-old car enthusiast worked hard on his project, re-welding the chassis of the secondhand Volkswagen, moving the engine from the front to the back and cutting pieces of scrap metal to build the Reventon’s aerodynamic frame. It took him a whole year to finish this labor of love, but apart from “minor”details like the lack of paint, a top speed that any bicycle could probably beat, and a Sparta n interior, Wang Jian got his coveted Lamborghini Reventon, and it had only cost him $9,500. Sadly, the police won’t let him register his sport car, for safety reasons, so instead of driving it on the open road to impress his friends, the young farmer uses it to transport fertilizer…

\\\\

As I mentioned in a previous post, the Chinese seem to have a fascination with home-made Lamborghinis. Just last year we wrote about another car enthusiast who built himself a Lamborghini Reventon, and a few months ago I wrote about this Chinese mechanic who builds and sells 99% identical Lamborghini Murcielago cars. And let’s not forget the not so accurate yellow Lamborghini built by Chen Jingmiao.

Swarovski-Studded Cadillac CTS Coupe Unveiled in China

By Spooky on May 31st, 2011 Category: Auto, Pics

A one-of-a-kind Cadillac CTS Coupe covered with 350,000 Swarovski crystals was unveiled last weekend, during the Qingdao International Auto Show.

I don’t know what it is about Swarovski bling and cars, but tuners and designers seems to think they make a good team. Just last week, I posted about an Audi A5 covered with 450,000 Swarovski crystals, presented at a Moscow exhibition, by Russian tuner Shampar, and now the Chinese show off their own blinged-out ride. Their Swarovski-studded Cadillac is 100,000 crystals short of the Russian A5, but it doesn’t look at all less glamorous.

A you can imagine, the so-called ‘Diamond Cadillac‘ stole the show in Qingdao, attracting the eyes of everyone attending and giving new meaning to the phrase ‘diamond finish’. According to brand representatives, this unique CTS Coupe took nine workers a whole week to finish, with each Swarovski crystal mounted to the body of the car with a special fixer. To whom it may concern, they added that the stones “are guaranteed to stay on even in a car wash”.

Russian Tuner Covers Audi A5 with 450,000 Swarovski Crystals

By Spooky on May 23rd, 2011 Category: Auto, News

Russian tuner Shampa stole the show at a tuning exhibition in Moscow, when they rolled out a white Audi A5 covered with 450,000 Swarovski crystals.

Now I’ve seen some pimped out rides in my days, including a gold-plated Mercedes, but I have to say Swarovski crystals are the best choice if you want your car to really shine. I was sold when I saw that SL600 covered in 300,000 Swarovski crystals, in Tokyo, and Shampa’s latest creation just made it that much more obvious. Apparently they ordered the crystals directly from Austria, it took 1,440 man hours to cover this baby in bling and cost the Russian tuner 6 million rubles, which is around $215,000. It’s the only one of its kind.

So what do you think, exceptional tuning or tasteless exhibitionism?

Swarovski-Studded Mercedes SL600 Could Blind You

By Spooky on January 20th, 2010 Category: Auto, Pics

I’m a big Merc fan myself, and the SL600 is definitely on my “to get list”, but this Swarovski-covered neck-twister is not my style.

But, apparently, most Mercedes fans are crazy about Swarovski crystals and it was once again proven at the 2010 Tokyo Auto Salon, where the sparkling SL600, covered with 300,000 Swarovski crystals, stole the show.

Created by Garson/D.A.D, a popular car accessory company, the two Sworovski SL600 made their second appearance at the annual auto show in Tokyo, after they were first introduced last year. They were still the stars of the show, though.

Ridiculous Scrap Part Limousine on Sale for Nearly $1,000,000

By Spooky on June 24th, 2010 Category: Auto, News

It may not look like it, but this weird-looking limousine is actually a Mercedes. Well, make that two Mercedes-Benze 300TD, and it can be yours for the modest price of $950,000.

That’s right folks, this ‘beautiful’ art-car, made of two welded Mercedez-Benz,containing parts from over 40 different cars is on sale for under $1 million. It’s even more unbelievable considering this limo has won the title of best art-car, at the Houston Art Car event, twice (2007 and 2009).

This alien-looking vehicle is the work of Antti Rahko, an art-car enthusiast who spent 10 years of his life welding two Cars into a 10-seater limousine, and decorated it with 86 lights and 36 mirrors. With that much visibility, you practically can’t crash this car.

I can understand Mr. Rahko worked hard on this art-car, but placing a $950,000 price tag on it seems just a bit ridiculous. Right now the bid on eBay is at $10,000, and he’ll probably need inflation to move a bit faster, if he wants to get the asking price in his lifetime.

Vintage Ford Mustang Becomes Creepy Artcar

By Spooky on April 7th, 2010 Category: Auto, Pics

Some people have a thing about covering their cars with the strangest stuff, but a 1969 Ford Mustang? There are those who would consider this to be blasphemy.

From the Pen Guy’s pen-covered Mercedes and General Carbunkle to the Camera Van and the plush-toys-covered Corolla, we’ve seen quite a number of vehicles covered in the most bizarre memorabilia, and this Mustang artcar makes a nice addition to our automotive collection.

Spotted on the streets of Alameda, California, this 1969 Mustang is covered in skulls, skeletons, clowns and creepy Jack-in-the-Box dolls. As you can imagine, people were circling this 4-wheeled mutant, trying not to miss any details. It’s nice, if you’re into strange-looking pimped-out rides, but Mustang fans could have a meltdown.

Pakistan’s Flamboyant Truck Art

By Sumitra on December 14th, 2011 Category: Auto, Pics

It’s rich, it’s vibrant, it’s colorful. It’s Pakistani truck art.

Indeed, trucks in Pakistan are not just a means of transport, but pieces of art to be looked at and admired. What’s beautiful about this form of art is that it is intricate but uses simple designs in bright colors. Almost every inch of the truck is covered and everything redone, including the manufacturer’s logo. The paintings vary greatly, depending on what the owner would like to see. Some request portraits of their kids, and some want those of famous personalities. Others leave it to the artist’s discretion. Besides paintings, there are several other ornaments that adorn these large vehicles. For instance, some drivers like to have decorative chains attached to the bottom, so the trucks make a merry, jangling noise as they travel up and down highways. A few drivers prefer to have large, three-dimensional models of birds or animals attached to the side of their truck.

\\\\

Whatever the design, the drivers seem to be in love with their vehicles. The truck-painting practice is said to have been started as a way for drivers to take a reminder of their homes along with them, wherever they went. Today, they say that they decorate their trucks because they love it that way. They participate actively in the decking up process, and hence feel a sense of attachment with their trucks. The art is so popular that some cars and taxis have also been spotted adorned with the paintings.

\\\\

The Pakistani truck paintings are now being recognized as a serious form of folk-art. Some art galleries display smaller objects painted in a similar fashion, such as mugs, glasses, lanterns and kettles.

Brass Van – Probably the World’s Heaviest Art Car

By Spooky on January 3rd, 2011 Category: Auto, Pics

The Brass Van is a unique art car completely covered with various brass items. Also known as the “California Fantasy Van”, this artwork on four wheels took 22 years to complete.

Hunter Mann is the present owner of the Brass Van, but it was actually his late godfather, Ernie Steingold, who crated it. A vacuum-cleaner repairman, Steingold first started adding brass to his 1975 GMC van, in the early 1980s and continued doing so for the next 20 years or so. It all started one day, when he decided to attach three brass elephants to the hood, as ornaments. Then he got it into his head to cover the vehicle with brass coins, and he did just that – around $15,000 worth of coins, at the time he finished the job. From there on in, he just kept adding brass.

Mann, the current owner of the Brass van, says there are around 5,000 pieces of brass presently attached to his vehicle, weighing about 10,000 pounds. In fact, this car is so heavy, its tires have to be changed every 4,000 miles, and I don’t even want to think about the mileage…

As you would expect, Hunter Mann gets pulled over by police, about once every five days. Most of the officers just want to ask him about his Brass van and take photos with it. Even though he gets asked the same questions every time, Mann never gets tired of answering them.

When it’s not on tour, the Brass Van can be found at ArtCar World, a museum for art cars, in Douglas, Arizona. Just in case you were wondering about how much such a unique vehicle costs, the Brass van was appraised at $350,000.

Chinese Car Enthusiast Build’s World’s Cheapest Electric Car

By Spooky on June 9th, 2010 Category: Auto, News

Zhang Haiting, a 58-year-old car buff, from Shanghai, China, has built a mini electric vehicle, all by himself.

But we’ve seen people build their own cars before, the thing that makes Zhang Haiting so special, is that his particular creation is environment-friendly. The resourceful Chinese inventor and machinery veteran designed and put together his electric vehicle, by himself, using all kinds of salvaged parts and materials.

Zhang has been using his zero-carbon emissions electric car, on his daily commute, for about a year, and Shanghai locals have begun noticing. They regularly get close and curiously check out the weird looking buggy that looks more like a bumper car than a real vehicle, and never miss the chance to get behind the wheel.

The home-made vehicle, built by Zhang Hiating, reaches a top speed of 30 km/h and runs for 50 km, with a fully charged battery. Seeing the reactions of passers-by, its creator is now thinking of commercializing his invention, for the price of just 5,600 yuan ($820).

Making use of ULC (ultra light construction) an Austrian car enthusiast managed to build the lightest and slowest Porsche in the world.

The Ferdinand GT3 RS may look a lot like a Porsche roadster, but as we all know, appearances can often be deceiving. I’m not even sure we can call this thing a car, considering it doesn’t even have an engine, but it’s definitely an interesting concept. The Ferdinand GT3 RS weighs an astounding 99.63 kilograms, which is lighter than any other working car, but that means all the “unnecessary” components were left out. The body of this home-made sports car is made of plastic tubes, and the wheels are so slim they wouldn’t even fit on a bicycle.

The golden finish of the Ferdinand GT3 RS may look impressive, but you’ll be surprised to know it’s just gold-painted duct tape, covering the plastic tube frame of the car. Since it doesn’t even have an engine, you’re probably wondering how it works. As you can see in the video at the bottom, this DIY vehicle is powered by…(wait for it)…pedals. Just like on a bike, you’ll have to make good use of your legs, to get from A to B.

You can see a lot more photos of the building process of the Ferdinand GT3 RS, on its Flickr stream, but we’ve posted enough photos to give you a good idea of how it was made. The world’s slowest Porsche is now on display at the Lentos Museum of Art, in Linz, Austria.

Functional Truck Made of Ice Blocks Is the Coolest Car Ever

By Sumitra on January 7th, 2014 Category: Auto

A Canadian automotive products company recently built a pretty cool truck, quite literally. It was made of ice!

Canadian Tire, in Zurich, Ontario, wanted to advertise the MotoMaster Eliminator Ultra battery that works at subzero temperatures. So they built a frozen truck using 14,000 pounds of ice. They also froze the battery to -40 degrees Celsius before using it to start the vehicle. During the test drive, the ice truck actually moved at a speed of 12 miles per hour for about a mile.

To create the Canadian Tire Ice Truck (as they call it), a team of professionals completely stripped the body off of a 2005 GMC Silverado. They fitted it with a steel frame, and ice sculptors were called in to chisel out the frozen vehicle around the frame of a regular chassis. “It was probably one of the biggest challenges we’ve ever done,” said Heidi Bayley, from Iceculture (the company that sculpted the truck).

\\\\

The completed truck looked really neat – transparent, with a futuristic kind of feel. It was featured in a few Canadian Tire commercials before it completely melted away. You can watch some of the ads on the company’s website.

A behind-the-scenes documentary explains the making of the truck in detail. The voiceover tells us that there was initially a lot of confusion over whether they could build such a vehicle or not. But they made it work in the end. “I’ve lived here my whole life, and it’s a good way to test life in Canada,” said John Keddy, the ‘Chassis Frame Fabricator’.

\\\\

The team faced several challenges in the process of making the ice truck. For starters, putting 14,000 pounds of ice on a regular truck frame meant that the frame had to be welded rigid. If it moved even a fraction of an inch, the ice would crack.

“We searched far and wide to find a truck that wasn’t rusty, a suitable candidate,” said Andrew Steckle, ‘Ice Truck Head Mechanic’. “We brought it into our shop, removed the body off of it, prepared it to run under its own power.” They had to make sure there was enough coolant in the engine, so the ice didn’t melt.

\\\\

The ice used for the project was unique. “Unlike the ice cubes at home that might have a white center, which is actually air trapped inside of it, we removed all that air. So our blocks are crystal clear,” said Heidi. That’s what made the truck look super-cool.

After several rounds of testing to confirm that the ice on the frame fared well, the truck was finally completed and taken for a test drive. Not only was the Canadian Tire Ice Truck the first of its kind, it also set a world record.

\\\\

I’ve never lived in such cold climate but for people who do, I’m sure having a frozen truck that starts is nothing short of a blessing!

Kris Marshall’s Christmas Truck

By Spooky on December 10th, 2009 Category: Auto, Pics

It looks like something out of a nightmare in the daytime, but at night the Christmas Truck really gets people into the holiday mood.

Kris Marshall sells GMC trucks around Dallas and Iowa and he decided to turn his old pick-up into something outrageous that would draw attention. A moment’s inspiration turned into one of the most popular rides in the West, the Christmas Truck.

All Marshall needed to create his twinkling wonder on wheels, was a generator,  a few strands of Christmas lights and some duct tape. And that’s basically how the Christmas Truck was born. It has between 50 and 70 light strands, each featuring 50-100 light bulbs. That ads up to a total of over 3,000 lights.

Its maker knows the Christmas Truck is totally illegal but says most of the cops just look at it and smile. He only got a few tickets for improper use of lights.

TRON-Like Reflective Supercars Are the Newest Thing in China

By Sumitra on January 31st, 2014 Category: Auto

It looks like the Chinese aren’t happy with their plain old boring supercars. So they’ve decided to cover them up in the latest trendy accessory – TRON-like reflective trimmings. Several websites have reported sightings of such cars on China’s streets, despite numerous police warnings.

According to Zeng Chaoyi, a car decorator, the trend is very popular among young drivers because of its futuristic and modern appeal. The decoration is believed to be made of 3M reflective vinyl tape. The accents are applied all over the car, including the wheels.

\\\\

One of the cars spotted sporting the wrap was a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. There was also a Nissan GT-R, covered in gold and yellow illuminating lines. It was seen on one of the streets of Shenzhen city in Guangdong Province. It seems that the GT-R’s owner adjusted parts of the wrap to make it more impressive, covering even vents on the bonnet. Similar sightings have been reported from Chongqing city as well.

\\\\

Unfortunately, the Chinese police force isn’t too happy about the car décor trend. They declared it illegal because it could confuse or distract other drivers and pedestrians. Traffic police officer Luo Kesheng said: “It’s strictly prohibited as it brings dangers on the road.”

\\\\

He might be right, but I don’t know if they can do much about it unless they also patrol the streets in supercars, just like Dubai’s police force does.

6 Unique Vehicles Based on the Smart

By Spooky on July 12th, 2010 Category: Auto, Pics

Definitely not my dream car, the Smart is a useful vehicle that will get you from point A to point B, with decent fuel consumption and no worries about finding a parking space. But other than this, the Smart isn’t the most impressive car on the market. But with a little imagination and a lot of work, even the Smart can become a unique neck-twister. Here are six examples:

Smart tank

Now this is one Smart I’d love to take for a ride! A tank is probably the last thing anyone would think about when looking at a Smart, but it’s surprising how well those tracks fit on the little bug. Unfortunately not much is known about this unique tuning masterpiece, other than it belongs to someone in Germany.

\\\\Photo via Gizmodo

Smart ForFun2

Ok, so the Smart tank was a big surprise, but a Smart monster-truck is definitely impossible, right? Wrong, the guys at Daimler Chrysler built it themselves, and it looks pretty cool. Called the Smart ForFun2 is a fully functioning monster-truck based on the body of a common Smart.

Smartinor

Inspired by Eleanor, the famous Ford Shelby GT500 from “Gone in 60 Seconds”, Smartinor is a weird combo between a Smart and the famous muscle car. Designed by the tuners at Thalon Design, Smartinor is definitely a unique vehicle, but I’m sure it’s not in any danger of being stolen by luxury car thieves.

Smart Starbug 1

Some of you may recognize the Starbug 1 from BBC’s Red Dwarf comedy series Back to Earth, but I’m sure all of you will appreciate its unique spaceship look. The custom-made Smart was auctioned off last year and probably snatched up by some hardcore fan of the series. Watch out for it on the streets on England.

Smart limo

The world’s first and only Smart limousine was created by Carbonyte, the tuner who also previously created the first Ferrari limo. The stretched Smart combines the practicality of the Smart with the extra room provided by a van, and thanks to a lighter chassis, it’s powered by its original 600cc engine. The building of the Smart limo took 300 man hours, over a period of 4 weeks.

\\\\

Batsmart

Unveiled at the 2008 SEMA Auto Show, the Batsmart is basically a Batmobile-themed Smart. The guys who made it probably anticipated the tough economic times to come, and decided to offer the Dark Knight a cheaper alternative to his fuel-hungry Batmobile. If you like it, you can check out more photos of the Batsmart here.

tiest Looking Truck

Spotted on a road-trip across the United States, this Cheeseburger Truck has to be one of the coolest looking trucks in the world.

World’s First Smart ForTwo Wrapped in Cardboard

By Spooky on September 29th, 2010 Category: Auto, Pics

In an attempt to prove their products are by no means disposable, German car maker Smart has teamed up with a cardboard manufacturer and designer Sarah Illenberger to created the world’s first cardboard-wrapped Smart.

It might sound and look stupid, but this cardboard Smart aims to somehow disprove the rumors that Smart cars are disposable. They want to show the world that even covered by heaps of  high-quality reusable cardboard blocks, their Smart ForTwo model makes a lasting impression. I don’t know about the “lasting” part, but it’s definitely caught my attention.

Renowned designer Sarah Illenberger applied all the cardboard blocks by hand, in a pixel-like fashion that she feels emphasizes the sustainability of both the car and material.

BMW Made of Bricks Costs More than the Real Thing

By Spooky on January 10th, 2011 Category: Auto, News

A BMW Z4 model made from hundreds of bricks is now being sold for $125,000.

Chinese artist Dai Geng spent more than a year cementing bricks together and then carving the massive block into an impressive replica of the 155 mhp BMW Z4. Except for the windows, everything is made from brick, even the hinges that allow the door to open and close just like metal ones. The car was unveiled in January 2010, and has been on display, in Shenzheng City, for the last year. Now the artist wants to sell it and make a nice profit.

Although this brick BMW Z4 is definitely an impressive replica, down to the interior trimmings, the price tag of $125,000 seems prohibitive. But Dai Geng is confident that one of China’s rich businessmen will want to buy it as and ornament for their gardens…
