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   |   Stance


A quick lunchtime photoshop chop once again. A friend complained that I hardly ever photoshop Audis. Well, there’s a reason for that, but I made an exception and went creative on a classic Audi 100 C1. Found this tracking shot of a USDM model and modified it. Obviously the car was lowered and the steelies have a larger diameter now, albeit still featuring a thin white-wall line so typical for this period and location. The rear fender has been relocated because I didn’t want the wheel to disappear into the fender. Quick & dirty? No. Quick and clean style just for fun.

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.

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.

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.

Automotive Art   |   Photoshop Chop   |   Bespoke Body


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.
