Tuning company Vorsteiner released an image of their latest project, a Rolls-Royce Ghost gussied up in gaudy glory.
We have to wonder if the British ultra-luxury automaker feels the same about people modifying their cars as champagne maker Cristal did when Jay-Z idolized their champagne in what they see as a distasteful light.
Nonetheless, the Vorsteiner Ghost comes with 24-inch three-piece rims that barely fit into the wheel wells and look like they’re riding on black rubber bands. The body kit includes a front spoiler with a chin splitter and a carbon fiber rear decklid spoiler as well as side skirt blade attachments.
The tuning package will be released this summer to those special few who can afford a Ghost and have the dubious moral fortitude it might take to modify such a creature.
It’s that time of the year again, when car’s are handed out like candy bars to select companies and builders for the 2010 SEMA Show. Last year Chevrolet made a huge splash with a massive display of Camaros, having a diverse variety of builders designing and creating their own unique creations. And this year it looks like Chevy isn’t stopping, with some Camaro build previews already being released for SEMA.
First on our list is intake and exhaust manufacturer CGS Performance Products. Having done several Fords and GMs in years past, CGS is no stranger to building beautiful, high quality show cars. This Camaro however will be sticking to its true roots with a custom paint job, ACS body kit and a ZR1-influenced hood. From CGS themselves will be custom handmade chrome moldings and their signature exhaust system, while Whipple Industries will be supplying their twin-screw supercharger in order to pump out 500-hp.
A rendering of the Camaro show car has some serious hot rod-influenced, with a staggered set of 22- and 24-inch Genuine Boyd wheels. The rear rollers will be a ridiculous 15-inches wide wheel with Pirelli’s all new 405/25/24 tire – that’s a lot of rubber! CGS claims they’ll be stuffing these without any fender modifications, but merely by swapping out the rear suspension with Chris Alston’s Fab 9 rear end with a latter bar and coil over suspension. We are definitely curious on the finished product and will be sure to report back, with extensive SEMA coverage when the show takes place in early November.
