Mods on this thread are already more frightening than the ones we see here in our country.

Bappi-da; sigh! Truly exotic!

I love the brown on that Lambo.

But that SLR is atrocious. Complete Carbage as TG calls it.

A PhD holder in "How to ruin a good car" it seems

By the way, if you didn't notice the rims, they are blue.

^^ This looks like the experiments I would have tried out on my 1:18 scale-model, back in 1995.

Only difference is, this guy is rich enough to try it on a 1:1.

Call him to ride on Indian roads with infinite speed breakers, potholes, auto wallas and within 5 minutes, he would cut those handle bars with a hack-saw blade or leave the bike and utilize public transport.

If got chance to come closer to than goldy mc-laren in a lonely parking lot, i would scrape some gold and live a lavish life.

The rich and famous have been rolling in style long before this - funerals are an equally big affair with no expenses spared.

A note to all - Please don't keep posting color combinations here when the thread is called "Strangely modified cars from around the World"..

The second RR number is T CRIBBS, for Tomb CRIBBS. Just like MTV Cribs. Special number for such cars.

It ain't. It's just the flow of line in parabolic form which makes it appear as such.

I kind of like this Hummer H2 snowmobile.

This was assembled by custom maker Zero South for an expedition to the south pole in 2009. There are in-wheel electric motors in each 'wheel' and at the heart of the vehicle is a VW diesel engine. Ironically the vehicle was built with the aim of drawing attention to alternative fuels

And this, on the other hand has nothing to do with environment friendliness. Freedom from inflatable tires, yes, perhaps I am wondering what the stock engine on this may be giving...5mpg?

It appeared in SEMA-2008.

Saw a show recently on the Hummer in Discovery Turbo. They had shown similar expedition Hummers. Supposedly there are being extensively used by scientists in difficult terrains.

Wow! Those are some crazy designs. Looks like something that would feature in Japanese Anime.

The last pic of the chrome truck reminds me of the caterpillar that just picks up tiny sticks to build a shield around itself

How could someone do this to a Lamborghini?

For the record, it's a Murcielago LP640, and what the owner wanted was a Reventon. So he got in touch with Mr. Leepu Awlia (I guess!).
