This isn't some backyard angle grinder job, but a top quality custom build on an original 1953 Pre A 356 Coupe complete with B pillar semaphore indicators, which pre ruination, would have been worth more than 1/4 million dollars. Build quality looks amazing but as it is a nasty taste aberration, and has taken the life of a poor, innocent 356 Coupe, it deserves to be here...

Does not belong on this thread, that is not only exceptionally well done, it's also bloody brilliant.
Agreed, epic..

It might be well executed (apart from the awful sunroof), but it looks dire - ill-proportioned and clumsy. Just a weird candidate for a stretch limo exercise.

Agreed, it looks very odd and and rather ugly.

It looks like something from The Fifth Element. And stupid.

£9050 for a part finished Alpina Replica E38

Where do I sign!!!
Skewed Alpina decal/stripe is terrible.
what an ahem, eccentric inventory that odd little dealer has.
Yes quite a few interesting choices. The 205 GTI pictures are odd, 25 years old, 116000 miles on the clock so there are pictures of an empty service book?

Flywheel bhp is no more than standard 130bhp despite some mods too.

If this was in Austrlia I'd expect to see the mighty car mods guys buying this and turning it up until it goes bang

This video also belongs in the youtube thread but I think it makes sense putting here for debate.

Japan's Custom Lamborghini Legend

Lambos are meant to be batst, so making them a bit more batst makes sense to me.
