Sogo store displays Christmas decor featuring crystal-covered Mercedes+

(Japan Economic Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) OSAKA, Oct. 28_(Kyodo) _ Sogo Co. put on display a Mercedes-Benz covered with crystals Tuesday at its flagship department store in Osaka as a Christmas decoration.

The high-end, sports-car version of the luxury German car sparkles as it is decked out with 300,000 pieces of Swarovski crystal, both inside and outside, and sits beside two Christmas trees that look like a couple, intended to generate a romantic mood.


"We hope families and couples begin enjoying the Christmas ambiance well ahead of the actual holiday season," a Sogo official said.

The decor will be on display until Nov. 3. The car is not for sale but carries a nominal price tag of 40 million yen.

I wonder, how can someone think of anything like this? That was one of the worst ever mods for a Swift.

the car looked good over all nice alloys a gt spolier at the back and all that,
however the only turn off was this spolier on the bonet

i am pretty sure its a spolier cause i have seen the same thing on an accord a few days back serving as a spoiler at the back.

and yes it is a swift

There was a movie, i think it was Fist of Fury that had a stunt like that. Brandon Lee using his leg to steer the car thats full speed on REVERSE.
I guess this was his second car! incase he messed up with the first
