Nissan Cedric Y34 | VIP

Even though the Nissan Cedric Y34 is a car from the nineties, I opted to give it that retro look with the hood painted flat black hood instead of carbon fiber. The wheels are pure 80’s design – but with a larger diameter not available back then.

Ford Focus ST 4-Door

This is part two of the Ford Focus ST chops. The car has been lowered over a set of nice wheels. The body has been cleaned and some details have been added to the bodykit. However, there was no need to change the bright orange color.

When I found the original picture, I instantly decided that it deserved a nicer background. The 70’s color of this BMW E12 5-Series really stands out – and the shadow line conversion adds to it. Not much else was done, I just added a couple of period correct alloy wheels and lowered it.

Renault R5 GTL Turbo

Having spent considerable time of my youth on holidays in France, French cars always remind me of those days. This Renault 5 has been transformed into a little pocket rocket with a turbocharger and intercooler. I have tried a new technique on this one to make body panels look like they have holes.

Koenigsegg CCX | Shooting Break Concept

I have always liked the shooting break concept of two-door station wagons. The Koenigsegg CCX inspired me to create one of those. Can you guess where the roof and taillights came from?

Lotus Europa | Racecar Concept

When the new Lotus Europa came out I was a bit disappointed with the styling. To me it looked rather boring. Therefore I decided to turn it into a racecar. Whether it fits GT2 or GT3 specifications was not relevant back then.

Holden Sandman Concept

The Holden Sandman Concept served as a test. For the first time I worked with logos, used as decals or stickers on a virtual model. Therefore not much work has gone into modifying the ride.

Converting this Startech 300C was quite a lot of fun. Initially, I planned to enter it into a contest many years ago. I wanted to create something different, apart from the usual lowering, Lambo-style doors and wheel changes. The bold look of the vehicle inspired me to convert the 300C into a (mini)truck.

One of my oldest photoshop chops is the Maybach Exelero. Not much done here, just a few minor tweaks. The factory paintjob has been upgraded to a two-tone paintjob, Aston Martin wheels have been added and the winglets have been removed.
