July, 2017 § Leave a comment

Custom coachbuilding of the 1920s and 1930s was the ultimate form of self-expression for the rich and famous. Jonckheere Carrossiers of Belgium re-bodied a 1925 Phantom I. They dared to modify the traditional Rolls-Royce vertical grill. And also they added rounded doors! and a nice bullet-shaped headlights. Unfortunately the Jonckheere records were destroyed in a fire and it remains unknown who commissioned or designed this one-off masterpiece with just one objective: to impress all who see it. Enjoy this 6-cyl 102hp gorgeous car.

In 1968 Ferrari introduced the 365 GTB/4. A first, second, and third place finish at the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona gave it the nickname “Daytona”.  Owned by a casino magnate and enthusiast collector, this nice car was “upgraded” . It was given nine-inch alloy racing wheels, thicker tires, and wider fender flares to accommodate the new setup, not to mention a more powerful engine – the specifics of which were unknown.

Rolls Royce latest creation is a custom-built car for a “collector”… a one-off coupe named Sweptail. With a special rear, a kind of  “boat tail” design. A lot of wood and leather, of course. Just a strange model from RR, but I love the front…  next RR will keep this design?

Laurens van den Acker has held the role of Design leader at Renault since 2009. New Espace, Scenic, Clio, Captur, Kadjar… a lot of good designs that are helping the French brand to improve revenues.

To honor this great creator, I’m posting the gorgeous Tresor, a high-performance electric two-seater GT concept. A beauty with a bold design using hexagons… only Lamborghini dare to use them on their cars.
