Today we want to show you really gorgeous example of car tuning. This is 1963 Buick Riviera with tuning by Fesler. The Scottsdsale, Arizona, dweller, co-owner and CEO of toymaker Ronin Syndicate, Tony Diaz, began his pursuit of the dark side a few years ago, combing the country for the perfect candidate for his evil mission. “I had been looking for a Riviera for a long time,” explains Tony. “I wanted it to look thug, but not modern-day thug—more like something from the ’30s,” proclaims Tony. “Like you would expect dudes with tommy guns to jump out of it.” Tony definitely had gangster goals, and thankfully his friend Chris Fesler was up for the task of making Tony’s dreams a reality.
To promote the New Twingo, Renault has enlisted the combined creative talents of four European artists, including Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud, to create a series of bespoke city cars. Renault offered four “artists” of varying nationality and cultural discipline – fashion, music, design and cooking – the opportunity to express their vision of a “Cabinet of Curiosity” by creating their own bespoke Twingo interior. The results of the style project reflect their view of the world: joyous, optimistic, clever and bold, just like the compact city car.
This stunning dark “batmobile” is made by a car wrapping specialist from Germany SchwabenFolia.

According to SchwabenFolia Black Bat can sprint from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) in 3.5 seconds, continues to 200km/h (124mph) in less than 10 seconds, and reaching a top speed up to 321km/h (200mph).

Apart of Rolls-Royce-designed “Inspired by Goodwood” interior of Vilner’s car called “The Italian Job” emulates a Bentley.

Everybody knows that in Russia bears walk around the streets and play balalaika. But it is something extra new that Russians use Golden cars. However, speaking about the Musical contest Eurovision 2009 that was organized stylishly in Moscow recently it’s easily to imagine such phenomenon. Gold-filled cars are not new in the auto-tuning world. In one of the German museums a gold-filled Porsche boxter was exhibited. The difference is that while Germans exhibit these cars in museums – the Russians use them daily.
