2019.08   |   Photoshop Chop   |   Electric Vehicle


Yes, there is something missing in this picture. No, I didn’t photoshop it out. This Jaguar E-Type doesn’t have exhaust pipes because it has an electric drivetrain. Jaguar unveiled a modern revival of the E-Type roadster with an all-electric, zero-emission powertrain in 2017. The vehicle is called the E-Type Zero and has a 40 kWh battery-powered electric motor. It can accelerate to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds and has a range of 168 miles (270km) on a full charge. The battery pack is designed to fit in the space occupied by the original six-cylinder motor without any modifications, and will fit in any model Jaguar using the same motor. The single-speed transmission replaces the original gearbox. In August 2018, Jaguar confirmed it will offer all-electric E-Types for sale starting in summer 2020. You can order yours now. To wet your appetite, I lowered the E-Type for an improved stance and fitted a more contemporary wheel and tire combination.

2019.08   |   Photoshop Chop   |   Retro Vibes


It is not often that I use an old black and white picture as a base for a photoshop chop. But sometimes I stumble upon a picture and immediately know what to do with it. Subtle, clean and simple, but with great impact was the idea this time around. The Opel Rekord C delivery van (Lieferwagen) has been lowered, the rear fenders have been widened and the grille has been modified. This gives it a muscle-car-like look and certainly more presence, doesn’t it? Just the right amount of lowering to give it a proper stance adds to the presence. Larger diameter and wider steel wheels with dog dish hubcaps go well with the classic overall look and keep the retro vibes.

Avid readers of Speedhunters and Japanese Nostalgic Car are familiar with the Japanese outlaw groups called 暴走族 (Bōsōzoku) and their tastefully modified vehicles. Most common base for building such vehicles are 1980’s JDM rear wheel drive sedans and coupés. However, if the owner has identified potential for an idea, just about any car might be used as a starting point and customized in one of these particular styles

A friend recently challenged me to create a Bōsōzoku inspired photoshop chop. Instead of resorting to the popular base vehicles, I opted to start with the least likely vehicle to be modified in this outrageous style: a safe and sensible Swedish SAAB 900 Turbo Cabriolet. SAAB could be ordered with three spoke alloys from the factory and therefore Yokohama Super Advan wheels suit perfectly. Converting this classic and throwing all the visual key elements into the mix was hilarious fun. Based on the prototype of the convertible, my interpretation of a Swedish Bōsōzoku vehicle includes many elements of Shakotan, Grachan and Bōsōzoku styles. Modified bonnet, oil cooler with externally routed oil lines, custom made sideskirts and massive front splitter, classic JDM fender mirrors, riveted overfenders and wonderfully tacky exhaust setup mounted in an unusual location. But because this is still a Swedish car, there are warnings stenciled onto the pipes. Safety first!

[Disclaimer: This picture was created without any serious thoughts. No SAAB was harmed in the process.]

When I found the original picture of this Mercedes-Benz C107 450 SLC parked in front of the Nice Matin building, I fell in love with it immediately. The color hues and saturation just scream late 70’s / early 80’s! The picture was immediately saved to the ever growing to-do folder… and gathered virtual dust for a couple of years. Every once in a while, I opened it and pondered the question how I wanted to modify it. Shooting break? Delivery van? In the end, I went for a classic custom top chop, along with a more contemporary set of larger diameter wheels and lower profile tires. Sometimes small changes go a long way in totally changing a vehicles appearance.

The Porsche 928 is a grand tourer by definition and was never intended to be used for motorsports. Covering long distances at high speeds is what this vehicle feels most comfortable at. While discussing with friends which race we would enter if each had a beater 928, I came up with land speed record racing and it isn’t half as weird as it first sounds. The overall shape of the body is sleek and aerodynamic, fine-tuned in the Weissach wind tunnel. If going fast in a straight line is the goal, it doesn’t hurt to have a longer wheelbase and considerably more power. And if there is a 956C sitting next to the 928 in the imaginary workshop, why not use the rear half and convert the car to mid-engine spec in the progress? I lowered the resulting Frankenstein creation, added classic Moon discs, removed the mirrors, wipers and all other unnecessary parts that disrupt airflow. The result was sleek, but the elongated fastback looked horrible. In the true spirit of Wunibald Kamm, I created a shooting break style canopy for improved looks and aerodynamics. Stripes in the classic Martini livery colors add to the period-correct appearance and make the 928 LSR look even faster.

Automotive Art   |   Photoshop Chop   |   Classic Outlaw


The first Tamiya catalogue I had as an aspiring young scale modeler, featured a Tyrell P34 Formula 1 racecar with six wheels on the cover page. Needless to say that I was fascinated by the weird looks. Back then at the age of nine and with easy access to information on the internet decades away, I didn’t know why they came up with the idea of adding an axle. I just loved it because it was quirky and stood out from the other F1 cars of the time. Finding a picture and reading the name of the Sparks-Thorne Little Six immediately sparked the idea to create a pre-war racecar with six wheels. The idea behind the 1938 edition of the Tyrell P34 idea would likely not have been about aerodynamics and grip while cornering, but more likely to fit a larger engine with more cylinders and displacement. I could imagine a Rolls-Royce Merlin living under the bonnet and a scared driver behind the wheel.

Tastefully modifying the Bentley S1 Continental by Mulliner was very rewarding and I wanted to create a more modern customized Bentley in a similar style.

How do you keep modifications on a car subtle if the base vehicle is anything but? Not an easy task to accomplish, but the Bentley Continental SC Sedanca Coupé in question actually is a great base to start with. The factory bodykit might look somewhat tacky with stock wheels and ride height, but the appearance totally changed once I lowered it and added a set of multi-piece BBS wheels. The bodykit now accentuates the lines of the body perfectly and gives the car a lot more presence. To achieve the low ride height, the fenders and wheel arches have not only been widened but also relocated vertically, to provide enough clearance for the tires. Most of the chrome parts have either been eliminated totally or blacked out, with only a few highlights remaining. It is up to your liking and taste to imagine this stately vehicle riding on either a static or more comfortable airride setup.
