It’s gold or nothing for Jamie Foxx’s Bugatti Veyron

While Bugatti doesn’t sell itself short when it comes to performance, many people know it doesn’t have enough oomph to stand out. Simply put; the French marque tends to go for subtlety, unlike other exotic hypercars with sharp edges or flashy color schemes. All the same, there is truly nothing wrong with a Veyron wrapped in gold as it is a car that costs over a million dollars.

American actor and Grammy award winning musician Jamie Foxx took to Instagram as he showed-off his newly customized Bugatti Veyron. His car, which used to be painted in a standard black and blue two-tone combination, now looks every inch an object built for those with the most expensive preferences.

Foxx opted for a gold wrap on every panel except for the horseshoe grille, door handles and center wheel caps that come with the standard chrome finish. On his post, the singer/ songwriter uploaded a photo of his gold Veyron with a caption saying; “I was feeling solid gold today when I drove in for work…”. He ended it with a Bugatti hashtag before telling more about Beat Shazam, an all-new game show he will be hosting on Fox TV.

Wheelsandmore Ferrari 812 Superforte contains upgraded wheel design, exhaust, suspension

To get your hands on a Ferrari 812 Superfast is pretty cool so to think that its performance isn’t good enough is quite unimaginable. Nevertheless, German tuner Wheelsandmore is offering to give your Superfast new upgrades and will transform the vehicle into the 812 Superforte.

No matter how good the Ferrari 812 Superfast is already, that does not stop the crew of Wheelsandmore to tune the vehicle. In fact, this is probably Maranello’s most powerful 12 cylinder engine with 800 horsepower and 718 Newton metres, making it really quick but still easy to handle.

The very first thing the tuner will work on would be the exhaust system, as this will be upgraded to either a stainless steel or a lightweight nickel chromium-based super alloy called Inconel. This includes sport catalytic converters and a valve inside to tweak the sound.

Spotted in Japan: Honda NSX by Liberty Walk almost looks like it belongs on the track

The Acura NSX, even though it has been produced in the United States, is rightfully claimed as one of its own by the legions of fans in Japan, where it is known as a Honda. For this particular example we are going to talk about, the owner definitely took it even further.

When looking at the images, it seems like the said car has been shot at Tokyo’s famous Tsukiji fish market, or some other similar market there. But it isn’t the place that matters, but the subject. As you can see here, this hybrid supercar looks like it is part of the country’s Super GT championship. But Honda is known for having several NSX-GTs in the series’ top GT500 class.

Though this Acura NSX looks a lot like a track focused car, it actually is a road going car. The supercar was modified by Liberty Walk and has been given a full body kit, making it look wider with a meaner demeanor. It had also been given enough aerodynamic enhancements that it will remind you of an air force fighter - blacked out like the one in the photo.

Give your McLaren 570S Coupé, 570GT, or 570S Spider a meaner sound by installing MSO titanium exhaust

British automaker McLaren developed their MSO (McLaren Special Operations) division to make their already exclusive vehicles a little more bespoke. And today, we are going to discuss some of their newest and coolest products that indicate the company’s expertise in style and performance to the Sports Series range.

For instance, if you own a 570S Coupe, 570GT and 570S Spider, and you want to achieve a meaner sound, you can always order the new titanium exhaust. It is actually lighter than the stock unit by 11 pounds (5 kilograms). Best of all, it makes the sound it produces five decibels louder. MSO claims that the car’s new tone sounds cleaner and crisper, and that this comes from the rear end of the vehicle.

Today, the titanium exhaust runs 4,750 pounds ($6,570 at current exchange rates), and this part can be had in a Nano Black finish, instead of the standard Nano Clear colour. The good news here is that these add-ons will not only be available as an option for new cars, as later this year, MSO will be offering these as an upgrade to already existing Sports Series owners.

There’s great news for Bugatti Veyron owners as the automaker recently introduced the Loyalty Maintenance Program to help customers maintain the condition of their cars and to allow them to keep their vehicles in mint condition.

The Loyalty Maintenance Program is actually part of the company’s Extended Warranty and Extended Warranty Plus programs, which can last for as long as 15 years. Owning a Bugatti Veyron can be very expensive; the maintenance costs alone are already high. The brand hopes that this program will help reduce operating costs for owners.

Franco Utzeri, head of Bugatti Certified and Financial Services, says that the Bugatti Customer Service is definitely more than just a seal of approval, making a difference for Veyron owners. It includes warranty, individual support, and a combination of a confirmed vehicle history. The automaker’s goal is also to give their customers a unique experience and 360 degree ownership that no other automaker currently offers.

This BMW 7 Series in the 730Li spec features a 2.0 liter four cylinder power unit. It also gets a longer wheelbase and that means that it is heavier and will tax its engine even more. This particular model we are talking about today can be found in the BMW Abu Dhabi Motors dealership and is finished in a beautiful Ruby Black Metallic finish.

Exterior upgrades that come with it include a 3D Design front spoiler, an M Performance trunk lid spoiler, and an M Performance kidney grille. And we are quite sure you noticed the new set of wheels it sits on as they measure 21 inches in diameter, and have been finished in an orbit grey shade.

As you move into the car’s interior, there are clear signs that this had been made by the automaker’s BMW Individual division. Red leather covers the seats, the door panels and part of the center console and the bottom part of the dashboard.

The latest teaser Nissan showed us had an image of the snowy mountains with an audio of what we thought was the 370Z’s engine sound. To cap off the teaser, it was introduced as the 370Zki. Well, if you want to see this Nissan snowmobile for yourself, check out this two-door snowmobile at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show. And before you get too excited, we will already tell you that this is not for sale.

Having said that, it does not mean that it is impossible for you to customize one, it’s just that it may be quite difficult and impractical. To do this, you will have to order tracks and skis from American Track Truck. And then a highly capable person should be able to attach it to a tiny sports car. That’s where it becomes tricky. For this unit, the entire driveline had to be scrapped.

This process involves lifting the car by three inches all around, which needed a custom lift kit. But even that was not enough space for the tracks that measure four feet on the ground. Of course, other necessary things like custom mounts for the rear springs, and three-inch wheel spacers were added to get the tracks away from the car. Both the exhaust and the brake lines were rerouted, while the rear wheel wells were modified so the tracks won’t chew up the body. All that change was just for the back.

The name Lapo Elkann may be familiar to you. Yes, this is the Italian Fiat heir who faked his own kidnapping. He is making some noise again, but this time, it is for something we applaud him for. He plans to treat car enthusiasts to projects made by a company he owns, Garage Italia Customs.

Having said that, one of the newest models his aftermarket company has done would be this Ferrari GTC4Lusso, and guess who it was made for specially? It’s for no less than the company’s creative director, founder and chairman, Elkann. He made this model extra special by transforming it into a one off example by giving it different hues of blue all around the body - inside and out. He explains on a post on Instagram that these colours are symbols of the infinite, which are associated to both the sky and the sea.

Starting off on its exterior, the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso is finished in Scottish Blue (Blu Scozia) that combines it with another shade of blue that is the Azzurro Lapo. The latter is painted on the bonnet, roof, trunk, and side gills and acts as a contrast to the other shade of blue. To match the body, of course, Garage Italia Customs will be giving it blue brake calipers too.

The Aston Martin Valkyrie is probably the most futuristic looking vehicle that is out today. In fact, it looks like a spaceship on wheels and could perfectly star in a Sci-Fi movie. Having that, it is actually currently being developed by Gaydon, together with Red Bull Advanced Technologies to make it perform even better than it already does.

It’s a limited edition model with only 150 units to be produced. However, every single example has already been accounted for. Now, one future owner of this car revealed to us what he has planned for his vehicle.

The Valkyrie’s style alone is already pretty much out of this planet, as you can see here in 95 percent ready production form. Now, the owner chose to get the Lunar Red paint to finish his car, but with one ingredient the automaker, or the industry has never used before: dust from the Moon.

After the Pantera reboot made its debut on January 31st, Ares Design announced plans to give another modern supercar a classic makeover. The revival of De Tomaso’s legendary model is based on the Lamborghini Huracan, while the Project Pony will be using the same underpinnings as that of the Ferrari GTC4Lusso. As for its bodywork, it will remind you of Maranello’s models from years before.

For Ares Design’s projects lined up for 2018, they will take inspiration from a trio of boxy grand tourers offered by Ferrari from 1972 up until 1989. These models include the 365 GT4 2+2, 400i, as well as the 412. Soon, Ferrari will bring these guys back to life in the Project Pony teased here in an official sketch. And by looking at the sketches, it seems like these models will be built with the full carbon fiber coach built body.

The Ferrari 412, the 400i, and the 365 GT4 were never the prettiest of Ferraris. And because not that many were sold, these models are now considered very rare, especially with their boxy design. In fact, they are now sought after by many car collectors.

Are you one of those people whose favourite colour is black? If you are, then you will definitely love this murdered out BMW X5 M example here. And by the way, let us be clear that mounting black wheels on a random black car does not make it qualify as having been murdered out. Speaking of blacked out cars, check out this X5 from Z-Performance. At first glance, you would think that this example is owned by your favourite villain who wants to rule the world.

Almost every week, we hear from at least one aftermarket tuner, but Z-Performance isn’t one to make a lot of noise on a regular basis. And even if they don’t, did you know that they have actually been around for 26 years now? One reason why not everybody knows of this tuner is also because they specialize in customs wheels more than anything else.

Having said that, this BMW X5 had been given a set of forged 22 inch Z-Performance wheels that measure 10.5 inches wide and a full 12 inches out. Of course, the wheels were finished in no other than matte black in the center, with glossed up lips.

Former Aston Martin designer turned entrepreneur, Henrik Fisker, is known for designing models like the Aston Martin DB9, the BMW Z8, the Fisker Karma or Karma Revero, and the newest one out there, which is the Fisker EMotion. But there is another model here that you probably did not even know of - the 2006 Fisker Latigo.

Fisker only built one example of this model, making it the very first and last production model. And it is now up for grabs on the website Bring a Trailer. To get this rare model brand new, it would have cost about $216,000; but currently, its value has gone down a bit and bidding is now set at about $37,500.

Fisker’s original plan was to build 150 units of the Latigo. But after they developed the prototype and built the first production model, the project was halted. One of the reasons for this was the rising of oil prices. This coachbuilt Fisker sits on the same platform as the 2006 BMW M6, while featuring a rebuilt 5.0 liter V10 tuned by RD Sport, which is paired to a seven speed sequential manual transmission. With that engine, this model can produce 665 horsepower (495 kilowatts).

When looking at this Range Rover Chieftain that was tuned by Jensen International, the first word that will enter your mind would probably be “classic” or “old school”. But that is before you see how this off roader performs. Yup, it is not just like any truck out there as it is built to conquer Mt. Everest, and you can totally rely on its skills.

Thanks to Jensen International for giving its CTS-V a little more push. Yes, the same 6.2 liter V8 had been supercharged, now giving it an output of 560 horsepower and it now comes with 556 pound-feet of torque. This engine then works with a six speed automatic transmission that is connected to a GM-sourced transfer box.

But the modern engine is not the only thing that has been added into the Chieftain’s retro body, as it now sits on Land Rover Discovery’s third generation platform and a ladder-frame chassis. This enables the Chieftain to have the necessary chops for superb off-road capability.

What could be the weirdest thing you could dress your car in? Well, we have seen models wrapped with Louis Vuitton x Supreme sticker, and there was one with French fry livery from last year or so. But we’re willing to bet there is no other car design that will astound you more -- the smiling poop emoji. Yes, you got that right, someone’s BMW 7 Series is wrapped with the smiling poop emoji that we use when chatting to express dissatisfaction. Who would have ever thought it would one day be used to dress a car up?

This was the doing of X Carwrapping, as it recently dressed this BMW 740E in a sticker that is coloured mostly in dark brown poop emojis. We’re thinking that this was done to demand the attention of a generation whose lives are centered on social media and the internet. When we first saw these images, we didn’t know how to react. However, there was a consensus that it was disturbing at the very least.

Now, you are probably wondering who asked for this commission. Well, it was a popular rapper born in Poland named Mr. Polska. We’re not surprised, who other than a rapper would drive a BMW 7 series covered in poop emojis in public.

While everyone wants to get their hands on a Lamborghini Urus as early as now, that isn’t likely to happen. However, one lucky tuner did just that. In fact, TopCar Design has already started on its latest project.

Many of you would agree that a factory fresh Lamborghini Urus already looks aggressive as it is, especially when it comes to its exterior design. Howevever, Lamborghini boasts that the Urus stands out from the crowd because of its “2/3 body, 1/3 window” ratio that is like that of a supercar - similar to both the Aventador and the Huracan.

But no matter how beautiful it already is, some people just want more, or maybe they just want to make their ride more personalized. If that is so, then this custom body kit by TopCar Design is probably what you need.

Have you ever wanted to own a Chevrolet Corvette track car? Well, if you are, you must know that you don’t have to settle for the new ZR1 with an output of 755-horsepower (563 kilowatts). That is because German tuner GeigerCars started offering a circuit-ready variant of the Z06 Carbon 65 Edition. It definitely is a track car, because it comes with a roll cage, and a safety harness. Apart from that, it has been equipped with a supercharged 6.2 liter V8, which now makes it a little more powerful, with as much as 759 horsepower (556 kilowatts) and 729 pound-feet (989 Newton-metres) of torque.

To still keep its identity, Geiger Cars made sure that Carbon 65 Edition still keeps as much carbon fiber as it can. This is what makes it special and extra lightweight. When looking at it, the exterior comes with a new front end with a revised grille for better airflow, fender vents, tweaked side skirts, and a sub-frame with an integrated diffuser by Geiger. For the spoiler, customers can choose how they want it to be - from a subtle flat piece to a full racing setup. Overall, Geiger Cars’ treatment gave the Z06 Carbon 65 Edition a more aggressive look, without making it look too crazy.

Geiger Cars was able to boost the standard Z06’s power from 650 horsepower to 759 horsepower, as they replaced its regular 1.7 liter Eaton supercharger with a 2.3 liter screw-type unit. This has been paired with the stock transmission, which could be an eight-speed automatic or a seven-speed manual. The throttle, intake and engine software had all been tweaked as well. The upgraded model can now reach 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 2.9 seconds, while reaching a max speed of 209 miles per hour (337 kilometers per hour). That is pretty good when compared to Chevy’s own ZL1.

Mercedes-Benz is building on the success of the Marco Polo travel vans by offering more diversity with their newest offering -- the camper van conversion, catering to the more adventurous crowd. This new package does not directly come from Mercedes. Instead, it is the product of Tischer, a German company that specializes in converting pickups into recreational vehicles.

If you check out the German tuner’s page online, you would see a number of similar conversions for different brands and models such as the Land Rover Defender, the Volkswagen Amarok, Toyota Hilux, Nissan Navara, Isuzu D-Max, Ford Ranger, and to the Dodge Ram. As you know, Mercedes’ X-Class is somewhat based on the Navara, much like the Renault Alaskan. And that is why it should not come as a surprise that Tischer is adding the X-Class to its lineup.

The cabin is designed like a cove and the inside area measures 1.5 meters wide with nearly two meters of headroom. It offers plenty of space and includes a kitchen with a three-burner gas stove for cooking while on the road. It has enough space for three seats, which can easily be transformed into an extra bed when needed. The best part is that the entire cabin is demountable.

Japanese aftermarket tuner Wald International’s latest project in the Black Bison line of body kits focuses on the BMW 7 Series. In these images, we see the large German sedan with the new pieces of Wald on both the front and the rear end. Having said that, the model will surely turn a lot of heads with these unusual revisions.

Apart from the aforementioned front and rear bumpers that are part of the Black Bison kit, there are also side sills, as well as new wheels and an aftermarket exhaust that can be added to the BMW 7 Series.

Up front, the most noticeable feature would be the L-shaped intakes on both sides, with a vertical array of LEDs as opposed to the horizontal ones on the stock G12. Both corners also get small, square-shaped inlets at each side, as well as a rectangular opening with horizontal slats in the center. A slim black lip also underlines the vehicle’s front bumpers.

After building more than a thousand units of four-wheeled VelociRaptor modified Raptor trucks in the past years, Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE) unveiled the VelociRaptor 6X6 Concept in 2016. Nearly a year after, the company completed the final version and teased the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6X6 at the 2017 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas. Now, HPE is finally letting the VelociRaptor 6X6 out of its cage for a price that starts at $349,000.

The new Hennessey VelociRaptor 6X6 is basically a Raptor -- in particular a Ford Raptor truck – a transformed six-wheel drive off-road vehicle with more than 600 horsepower of output. HPE aimed to refine the VelociRaptor 6X6 and turn it from being just a concept to a full production unit. However, those wanting to get a piece of this off-road monster need to act fast and contact HPE. This is because the company is building only 50 examples of the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6X6. HPE is also willing to cater to customers outside the United States. Interested customers could order the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6X6 directly from HPE or through select Hennessey / Ford dealers.

When HPE unveiled the concept version of the VelociRaptor 6X6 truck, it pegged the starting price at $295,000. However, something must have happened between the concept phase and the final production form that moved HPE to increase the base price by $54,000 to $349,000. There could be a number of changes on the parts and components or there could be some tweaks to the cost structure of creating a fully capable VelociRaptor 6X6. Nonetheless, the surge in starting price is understandable, and the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6X6 remains significantly more affordable than the Mercedes-Benz G63 6x6, which is valued at least more than half a million dollars.

The Land Rover Discovery’s rear is definitely not a calming sight for people with obsessive compulsive disorder. Why you ask? Because of the offset number plate design that is positioned more on the left, as opposed to being centered. If you have this car and been bothered by its design, Startech has found the perfect solution for you.

Startech offers a new tailgate insert, also known as item number LR5-410-00, that will bring the plate back to where it should really be, and that is the center of the rear. It’s quite awesome for Startech to think of this. Now, the only issue you will have is seeing other people’s Land Rovers. But at least you got yours covered.

If you have already decided on getting Startech’s add-on referred to as the “Discovery of Symmetry”, you must be willing to shell out 809 euros (approximately $954). Do you think it is worth paying that much just to change the positioning of the number plate by a few inches? The price is a bit steep; owners might decide instead to get additional tech instead of stressing about the uncentered plate. Or perhaps even spend a few extra hundreds for a split spoke 22 inch wheels that cost 3,700 pounds.
