Default DIY - Rolls Royce Phantom

Young Ruslan Moukanov, from Kazakhstan, fell in love with the luxurious Rolls Royce Phantom ever since he saw some pictures of it a few years ag. Ruslan realized he couldnít just buy a 500,000 euro car, so he found a way around that. Using his master-tuner skills, the young Kazakh managed to transform his old Mercedes into a shiny Rolls Royce Phantom. He built the car-kit himself and managed to get his hands on the needed parts. If you donít count the time and effort involved, this Rolls Royce Phantom cost just 3,000 euros to make. And it looks amazing!

I certainly wish I had the skills of this guy.

It may be weird and whacky but this gentleman has surely shown the world: Where there is a will, there is a way. I'm only referring to his Creativity, nothing else.

Great job and tremendous talent but no thanks. Wish he would put his talent at restoration if hes not already doing that.

Nice from the front, but from the side it looks hideous

Great work!
He knew he couldn't buy a Rolls but wanted one, so made one which he can call his own.

Would have been better if he had designed something different.

He has used a E class w124 and the whole thing looks at least the part and not just a nose transplant! Not bad but yes I somehow would not go beyond appreciating the effort being seen in one regularly Nah rather drive the original E instead and when I can afford one by the real mcoy

Should have just restored the W124 to it's original look, nobody in his right mind would believe that to be a Rolls. Sorry to sound critical, but that just my POV.

On the other hand he has done what he "wanted" to do. As long as the owner likes it - no sweat.

Superb job. A noob could fall for that. The front is very Phantom-ish. However, I'd stick with a Merc if it were me. But still, it's inspiring.

WHat a great job he has done.!

Unlike some bloke called DC who does the other way round, converts RR to crap.
